Wecome to LDS Treasure
LDS Treasures explores the world of the Latter-day Saint at home, at church, and out in the world. It's not a complete handbook, but an exploration of whatever captures my attention at any given moment. Many of the articles first appeared on my previous columns at BellaOnline or Suite101.com. To navigate the site, use the links to the left, which take you to specific categories of LDS life. From there, you will find a list of topics currently available for that topic.
I am the author of two homeschooling books, one in a new second edition. They are not specific to LDS homeschoolers, but offers homeschooling help that is faithful to LDS values and lifestyle. The first is a detailed how-to on do-it-yourself homeschooling and the second is on preschool and kindergarten at home. The preschool book is aimed for parents who intend to send their children to a traditional school someday. Of course, the information is also helpful to lifelong homeschoolers, but it offers a somewhat structured approach, since the parents will be preparing their children for structured schools.
To learn more about homeschooling, visit Treasured Time for Homeschoolers. There are also a few articles on homeschooling in the LDS Treasures site, and more will be added. To learn about me, or to arrange a speaking engagement in or near Philadelphia, PA, visit my biography.
To learn about Mormons who write, visit latterdayauthors.com This site, which I also maintain, includes interviews with LDS authors and publishers.
