This school year after my children finish  their math and language lessons, we do something that has become a favorite routine in our home.

During our lunch break, we gather around the table and go on exciting adventures. Every day we tune our computer into Adventures in Odyssey or the adventures of Jonathan Park.

We have been big Adventures in Odyssey fans for at least fifteen years. We still have many episodes on cassette tapes.

If you have never been introduced to these audio shows let me be the first to tell you. You are missing out.

We do not even consider going on a road trip without taking Mr. Whitaker, Connie and Eugene along with us. Before we started listening during lunchtime many nights my children fell asleep hearing a grand adventure.

As a mom, I love finding resources that can come along beside me and encourage my children to walk as Christ walked and help ground them in the faith.

So, do you have any resources you just love? If so, leave a comment and let us know.

Kim has been married for twenty-three years, a minister’s wife for more than twenty years. She has eight children and  has been homeschooling for fourteen years. She would like to say she reads travels and does all kinds of wonderful things in her spare time, but the truth is she spends her spare time doing laundry.

  1. I love Adventures in Odyssey! Have listened since the early 90’s (even before I had kids!) We didn’t have a tv when we were first married, and the cassette tapes were our entertainment. (The Barkley family stories are my favorites.) I didn’t know they were available on computer. Thanks for the tip!

  2. My children also really love Adventures in Odyssey! 🙂 We haven’t heard of Jonathan Park so we’ll have to check it out. 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing. One of my favorite resources is iMom (a part of Family First ministries). I get daily encouraging emails and tips from them as well as Family First. http://www.imom.com. They have a wealth of resources to print out and use as well. 🙂

  3. My son loves both of these! He listens to them all the time! These are great avenue for our kids!
