Pursuing Gold: A History and Critical Thinking Curriculum. You may be wondering why I wrote a curriculum to accompany Pursuing Gold. Many women have read the book and loved it, even asking for more. Much more than just a novel, I packed the book full of accurate history and Biblical truths. So, I asked God “What could I do that provides the “more” my readers are hoping for yet bridges together my love for homeschooling?” Creating a curriculum was the answer to my prayers. I love how 1 Timothy encourages the older women to teach the younger. And, as part of the church, we should be obsessed with impacting the next generation. Dr. Johnny Hunt said, “Teach what you know, reproduce who you are.” I am thrilled to offer some of the lessons I acquired during my homeschool years, but most of all, my heart to help direct your next steps.
Women Who Overcame. Heartache and sorrow are part of life, but we admire the women who persevere despite the obstacles. In the book, Cynthia shares several of her favorite stories by dropping you right into history. She also shares a snapshot of the trials she lived through as she began writing. You’ll enjoy the gripping stories and the triumphs. It’s great for anyone who loves history, or for anyone who needs encouragement.
