Monthly Reading List
By Michelle Miller
If you’re feeling a bit housebound during the cold, dark, snowy days of February, maybe we should journey together to warm, sunny Africa! It has been in the news of late, and it is always good to gain a fuller background. So, let’s not only meet its wonderful people, but glimpse its wildlife, stunningly diverse geography, and see God’s hand at work! (Remember that many of these mission books may be in your church library, or you may want to put them there!) Oh, it would be a great time to learn the fun and simple game, Mancala, an African favorite. In addition to all of that, February is Black History Month, so we have many reasons to dig in!
Michelle has always loved words; just ask her weary-eared husband! From teaching herself to read at a very young age, to making her baby sister patronize her pretend childhood library, to owning 25,000 living books today, she has discovered that modern public libraries seldom offer children the best. Thus, she founded a private library (www.ChildrensPreservationLibrary.com) offering the great treasures to families in her area. She enjoys helping others around the country do the same.
Naturally, when she wrote her award-winning history curriculum, it harnessed the incredible potency of these great books, along with pithy and supporting spiritual commentary (www.TruthQuestHistory.com). Michelle is a veteran homeschooler (19 years, with many more to go!), columnist, speaker, consultant, and author who graduated summa cum laude from the University of Alabama. Michelle and her husband, John, have four children: two adult sons and two youngsters still at home in Michigan; they also have five cute grandsons!
