Was the U.S. founded on Christian principles? Were the Founding Fathers believers? Do you believe our children should be taught the truth about America’s Christian heritage?
Author and homeschool mother Marilyn Boyer went in search for the truth about the Founding Fathers. Who were they? What were their beliefs? Did their lives mirror these beliefs, and if so how? What should we be teaching our children about the Founding Fathers?
Marilyn spent countless hours of research to answer these questions and she has shared the fruits of her labor with us in her book, For You They Signed.
In her book, Marilyn introduces us to all 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence; men who most of us know little, if anything, about such as Josiah Bartlett, William Whipple, Elbridge Gerry and Thomas McKean. As she points out in her book, the vast majority of these 56 men, were Christian believers, living out their faith, and “looking to their Savior for guidance and daily direction in the events which led to the signing.“
She designed the book so that it can be used in a variety of ways. Families can use the book for family/group devotional character studies, as a complete, easy to use history resource or simply for inspirational, recreational reading.
I believe this book is a valuable treasure. A treasure all Christian families should own and read.
Filled with little known facts about each of the signers, Marilyn gives us insight into the lives of each man. Who were they? What were their roles, both in society and within the framework of building the new nation? How did they handle the tribulation and trials of the times and what can we learn from their choices? These answers and more can be found in For You They Signed.
Beginning November 1st (for two weeks), a panel of mothers will begin blogging about For You They Signed. The review blogs will all be written from a parent’s perspective. Some will focus on the importance of teaching our children about America’s Christian heritage, while others will center on their experience teaching a lesson using the book.
To find out how and where to read these reviews, go to the Christian Home School Hub between November 1st – 12th.
Also, on Monday, November 15th at 10:00am MT (12:00- Eastern) chat with author Marilyn Boyer live on the Christian Home School Hub!
At this time in history, all Christian Americans should arm themselves (and their children) with the truth about the men who founded our country. Men, with character and boldness, made conscious decisions to live out their faith and seek guidance from the Savior. For You They Signed is a valuable tool to do just that.
