Mighty Works of God

Do your children know the effect of the Gospel on the founding of America? 

Shouldn’t they?

Educating our children in the principles of liberty can not be separated from enlightening them in the principles and truth of the Gospel.

When choosing an American history  program, ask yourself- can it answer the basic question, “What is the effect of the Gospel on our American founding?” If you can’t answer this question for yourself, you’ll find great joy in learning along side your children as you discover Biblical truths to questions such as:

  • How is learning about liberty and self-government valuable for my child?
  • What does history tell us about how God intends for men to be governed- individually and in society?
  • Does it matter what approach to history is taught in my homeschool?
  • Whose responsibility is it to preserve and restore the nation?
  • How do you pass the responsibility to preserve and restore the nation to the next generation? How would the study of history be so important in achieving this goal?

 Self Government with Union
Upper Elementary Level
(4th or 5th grade)

The Mighty Works of God: Self Government with Union identifies the truth that individual self government must precede local self government. Individual self government operating in the family, applied in the church, and extended into the local community was the basis for local, self governing states. These individual, self governing states eventually united as one nation under God.The principles of individual self government and local self government are derived from Scriptures, specifically the two great commandments Christ gave in the New Testament. The Student Text and Teacher’s Guide focus on these ideas.Self Government with Union traces the challenges faced as individuals and the nation sought to follow Christ’s two great commandments, giving evidence of God’s Hand ruling in the affairs of men and nations.

“I used the Mighty Works of God for all four of my school-aged kids. The Teacher’s Manual helped me see how to apply the Principle Approach to a lesson. I was able to take the leading idea from each lesson and expand it for my older children…

“Divine Providence gave me a basic curriculum from which to work. You identified principles and leading ideas and provided questions for reasoning and reflection. As a busy mother of several children, this was a huge time saver…The CD of notebooking pages was another timesaver…

“I believe many families are drawn to the Principle Approach because they want to teach their children to think and reason from the Bible…It takes time to learn the principles and how to extrapolate leading ideas from the lessons. That’s why I believe the Teacher’s Manuals to The Mighty Works of God series are so valuable.”–Diane, Homeschool Mother
