As we continue our back-to-school interviews with homeschooling moms and dads from all walks of life, our special guests today are Dwight Gullion, homeschooling father & owner of Gullion’s Christian Supply, and Nancy Glidewell, homeschooling mother and the homeschool curriculum coordinator at the Gullion’s Winston-Salem store. Together, they offer up their professional and practical tips on how to choose the curriculum that best suits your family. Be sure to check out Gullion’s on the web Gullion’s Christian Supply for an incredible range of used and new books & supplies for homeschoolers!

This is the second of a two-part series, in which we talk about the following: Why is it important to choose a specific curriculm approach? Why can’t we just “wing it” and study whatever we and the kids want to learn on any given day? How can we use the curriculum to individually nurture each of our very special and uniquely different children? How important is it to use Bible-based textbooks? Why should we stay away from books with magic and occult? How can we incorporate Bible truths by using Christ-honoring literature? Here are some of the great literature series and authors that Dwight and Nancy recommend: Journey Forth series from BJUPress, Mandy, Sugar Creek Classics, Elsie Dinsmore, G.A. Henty, Lamplighter Books, R.M. Ballantyne, Jonathan Park. You can do a websearch for any of these series/titles/authors or visit Gullion’s Christian Supply.
