Epi Kardia Christian Literature-based Homeschool Curriculum Using Charlotte Mason Methods


Daily Lesson Plans


---Do you have a burning desire to homeschool but are afraid you are not equipped to teach your children? 

---Would you like to be better at teaching and reinforcing Biblical truths and values as you teach history, science, language and fine arts?

---Do you have difficulty pulling school all together and keeping it going without a detailed plan?


If you are looking for a curriculum alternative that does not require a great deal of planning and preparation time, this is the one to choose.

I would absolutely recommend Epi Kardia especially for any family that is interested in well-planned curriculums that are literature-based using a Charlotte Mason approach... I was impressed with how comprehensive the Daily Lesson Plans were and our family was not disappointed with the results of using it... I have learned so much about our history and Charlotte Mason's methods...I think I learned more from your curriculum than I did in school. --Tracey*

Daily Lesson Plans for history, science, language arts and fine arts for homeschool students


"We have really enjoyed using the Epi Kardia unit on the Ancients! The lesson plans are very user friendly and such a help to me!! Another thing I appreciated is that it is a really nice blend of reading with hands on activities and discussion. One thing that makes this curriculum very affordable is being able to get the great majority of the books at the library, if you choose. However, some of the books are really wonderful books, and things you may want to keep on your bookshelf. I think it is a great curriculum and one I recommend to people quite often!! I think you and Beth have done a great job and I am really impressed! Thank you again for all your help!! Blessings,"

--Rose,   Mom of 2 

"Over the past school year we have benefited from using the Epi Kardia daily lesson plans. We have thoroughly enjoyed each book that we read as we traveled through history; Epi Kardia truly made history come alive! In addition, the lesson plans have helped to keep us on schedule, given us hands-on projects, questions, and web sites to research, writing assignments to complete and worksheets to help organize information! Thank you!"

"[The daily lesson plans] have been so helpful to me. The structure really helps me and gives me confidence. Thanks again for all the advice and support. You have been such an encouragement to me."

--Joyce, Mom of 5


"I have a critique, and I hope you take this in the manner that it is meant – with honesty, etc. I am not sure you’re charging enough money for all you are providing (in the lesson plans). I am so very impressed with your products… Just wanted to thank you for all the work that you and your partner have put into them."

--Kathie, mom of 4
