Steve Lilly
Growing up in an Christian educator’s home meant taking learning-centered vacations that, to many, would be labeled “boring,” but, to Steve, proved to be inspiring. Memories are filled with taking afternoon drives, a weekend jaunt or a vacation to battlefields, museums, monuments, and other historic venues. This early appreciation for times past led Steve to pursue a History Major at Christian College. Today, his knack of remembering unique tales of history enrich his teaching opportunities, whether in a classroom or church setting, and his simple lessons given to his growing daughters. What joy to be able to repeat those history “vacations” now with his own family.  Truly HIStory has come alive for Steve from boyhood to adult.

Rebekah Lilly
“Carschooling” for many of her grade school years added depth to learning not experienced by most. Geography, people, and stories all brought a greater appreciation for those who have gone before to build the land we love today. With a desire to create a love for learning just as she had been given, Rebekah completed an Education degree at Christian College. A Master’s in History stretched her first-hand knowledge to include more details and deeper philosophical background, while her current pursuit of a doctorate enhances and further secures a strong foundation in Christian Education. Yet, by far, the most challenging has and will continue to be for some time, the homeschooling of her own children. As a Daughter of the American Revolution (DAR) member, Rebekah loves to research American history, and with an almost giddy intensity, she insists upon sharing her findings with the family. Americana, learning and an appreciation for all that God has given are contagious in the Lilly house.

AbiNoelle Lilly (a.k.a. “Tweety-Pie”)
Talking since she was born, a learning-lover, an avid Bible Memory student and all-around reader, AbiNoelle soaks up all that her Mommy and Daddy can teach. Following in her parents’ footsteps, she loves to travel, visit unique places, make new friends, and teach her little sister, AmiJoy, all she knows. Her PopPop (Dr. Ronnie Williamson, Evangelist for The Voice in the Wilderness) dubbed her “Tweety-Pie”, and now folks from all over follow her adventures on the Tweety-Pie Vimeo Channel, are challenged to memorize God’s Word with her, and are fascinated to learn the Truths of History in her Junior Tutor Classroom.

AmiJoy Lilly – Special Contributor through cooperation! Her “Joy” and energy is contagious.

SO MANY PEOPLE HELPED…

Special Thanks
Much time, proofing, research, critique and review have been given by many, including Mr. Jeffrey A. Cobble (Attorney at Law), Dr. and Mrs. John Reese (Pensacola Christian College History and Education Faculty), The Eric Johns Family (Our dear friends and homeschoolers), and Miss Scarlet Jernigan (Ph.D. Candidate and friend). To them, we say a special “Thank You.” Additional thanks to our former student, Laurel Owenby, for using her talents to create the cover artwork and “Tweety-Pie” illustrations. We would also like to acknowledge the inspiration found through the ministry of Dr. Chuck Harding, Pastor T. Michael Creed, Dr. Ronnie Williamson and The Voice in the Wilderness, and a book greatly utilized and recommended, The Constitution Made Easy by Michael Holler. And, to all those revisionist, children’s history books, “thanks” for giving us the burning desire to send out the TRUTH.

You won’t be disappointed! Request your copy today!

Do we Google?

No, I can’t believe it. No, I refuse to believe it! But AbiNoelle said that I must believe, or, rather, “Whether you believe it or not, Mommy, it’s true!” (That kind of reminds me of the kid’s song that I used to sing all the time, “God said, and I believe it, and that settles it for me.” Of course, the preacher reminds us that whether WE believe it or not… God said it and THAT settles it!) Well, here I am in that very predicament. Whether I believe it or not, AbiNoelle’s

KJV Card Designer with a Cherry on Top!

The assignment was given! The young people were challenged to complete an at-home project creating a hand-made Christmas card that shared the gospel message. ANDDDD she was off! – Not to the races, but to her creation station. Cardstock, glue, glitter (YIKES – says Mommy), markers, pens, and a few ideas from Google and you’ll never guess what happened!

The Ban on Little House and our Surprising New Fact

I was once told that “History is the key to our past,” yet, while so true, it seems that many are trying to get us to jam that key into another door – a door that would open the minds of young people to a world where truth has been re-interpreted, twisted or erased to meet the agenda of a leftists few. After reading of the stripping of the Laura Ingalls Wilder award by the American Library Association, I was all the more tickled to hear AbiNoelle’s gasps as she rushed out of the schoolroom to tell me this surprising fact: Continue reading “The Ban on Little House and our Surprising New Fact”
