Our story of how we began A Journey Through Learning is really quite simple. One December evening in 2007 Paula and I, along with our spouses, were enjoying a dinner out. During the meal, Paula and I were talking about how hard it was to find good, wholesome, Christian material for our children. Our two daughters are both 12 and like us, best friends. Tired of hearing us complain, the men made a simple comment, "Why don't you create your own?" And so began our journey. The was was chosen for that very reason - were were going on a journey through learning!

For two months we brainstormed, researched and studied what was out there. We knew we wanted to be different but we also knew that the homeschooling market was lacking in good hands on Christian learning materials.

We knew nothing about running a business. We only knew that this was our goal. So, we learned everything from the ground up. Nancy took over the writing and bookkeeping and Paula edited and also designed the webpage. After only 1 1/2 years in business, we have 96 products! We are currently top sellers on Curr-Click and The OldSchoolhouse. Just this year we met a wonderful lady named Susan Marlow. We are currently creating study guides and lapbooks to follow along with her book series called Circle C Adventures. We are also in the process of signing with a couple of Christian book store chains to sell our items.


A Journey Through Learning will present a workshop entitled: Educating Your Child Using Lapbooks!

All children retain knowledge more effectively by using their hands to learn. Lapbooking enables parents to teach deeper and richer subjects using mini-booklets that are glued into connected, colored folders. As your child learns the material, he or she fills out the mini-booklets with the information they have learned. When the lapbook is finished, your child will have a wonderful treasure to share with others. Here are some of the things we will cover:
  1. How to assemble a lapbook.
  2. What are booklets?
  3. How to adapt a lapbook to use with any subject.
  4. How to create a lapbook and study guide to teach your child at home.
  5. Homeschooling multiple ages using lapbooks.
  6. Using lapbooks with special needs children.
  7. Even preschoolers can do lapbooks!
  8. How to store lapbooks.

Welcome to A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks-where we say BLECH! to workbooks! Why do something boring when you can accomplish the same amount and more with something FUN!
Lapbooking will make your child say HOORAY to learning!



So what exactly is a lapbook? Glad you asked! A lapbook is a FUN, HANDS-ON and CREATIVE way for your child to record information that he/she has learned about a certain subject. First, you create the folder part of your lapbook. This part is made from colored folders that are folded in a special way and glued together. Mini-booklets are then cut out, constructed and glued inside of the folders. Kids really like that!

*You will receive your folders for free when you order a printed version!

*Our 3-folder lapbook takes about one month to complete. However, you can expand the study portion and make it last as long as you want. That's the beauty of homechooling. Do it YOUR way!

    Dear Paula,
    It was with great sadness that I learned of the loss of your beloved daughter. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through this incredibly difficult time. I really can't imagine.
    I'm sure many other HOTM conference attendees are also praying for you, and I trust you will feel the comfort and strength that God provides.

    Sincere sympathy,
    Wanda Webb
