There are certain dilemmas that are common to most, if not all, homeschooling families. Discovering that what most science curriculum publishers consider “common” household items are uncommon in your home is a “common” dilemma. Finding that math curriculum that works for all your children without having to invest a small fortune in multiple programs is another common dilemma. I would argue that finding an American history curriculum that focuses on the multi-ethnic story and strength of this great nation is yet another dilemma in many households.
I birthed A Blessed Heritage Educational Resources for several reasons:
1) I wanted to create a curriculum that told a more complete picture of African-American history rather than slavery and the Civil Rights Movement, with few or no stops in between.
2) I wanted to create a curriculum that taught children about more African-American heroes and heroines than Harriet Tubman, George Washington Carver, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
3) I wanted to create a curriculum that instilled pride, that inspired greatness, that energized children and parents regarding history studies.
4) I wanted to teach our children not only the stories of history that are commonly taught, and not only African-American history. I wanted to introduce other stories of other races and ethnicities, so that our children appreciated the diversity that gives America its power and uniqueness.
5) Most importantly, I wanted to create a curriculum that glorified God in the midst of the African-American story.
Welcome to A Blessed Heritage Educational Resources.
Within the pages of our products, you will find all that I endeavored to do as mentioned above and then some. These literature-based products allow children to experience history as the people themselves experienced it, with stories that spark every emotion–laughter, sadness, surprise, wonder and excitement. There are activities, discussion questions, crafts, and opportunities for written expression for older and younger children. Best of all, it is all done while intentionally and unashamedly pointing the reader back to God’s hand and God’s heart.
Please visit A Blessed Heritage, and be blessed.
