When I was looking for a World History program I wanted something that was Bible-centered, multi-level, with hands-on activity AND would cover what was going on in History in other parts of the world through a ‘Bible time-line’.  WHAT A JOY when I found The Mystery of History.  It was an answer to prayer. . . when we actually started using it just about DAILY my son would say,’Thank you so much for buying The Mystery of History, Mom, I Love doing The Mystery of History’.”

You have thought through this text, provided multilevel activities, and, I feel, you have poured yourself into each lesson. Thank you for bearing witness to His story.

I appreciate the worshipful attitude that Linda displays in her telling of history…Her excitement for His works is contagious…. my daughter, who is admittedly an advanced reader, was known to read The Mystery of History for leisure when she was only 4 years old.

Your The Mystery of History books are really big and thick, and I like that A LOT! I really like what you write in them. My favorite quiz is the Millionaire Multiple Choice game. I wish all of the quizzes were Millionaire Multiple Choice.
