[Podcast Episode 74] Where does the Bible go to give us analogies for things we can’t see? The created world! We explore Proverbs and then learn about an unusual animal from Madagascar, the Tenrec. Then we share with you about a homeschool resource that includes a whole video course on dinosaurs!

He’s now done a video introduction to dinosaurs for families using SchoolhouseTeachers.com. I’m so glad he is helping us take back this important area of childhood learning!
Thank you, Pat, and thank you, Schoolhouse Teachers. You get the importance of reaching the next generation!
