Connecting children with “just the right book” for their God-given giftings, interests, and studies is a passion of Michelle Howard’s, due to the rich power of living books.  In childhood, Michelle made her baby sister patronize her pretend library; she now owns 25,000 living books, founded two real libraries to circulate them (Michigan & Florida), and happily advises and seeks ideal resources for each of her patrons there.  But, Michelle can also assist your family with deep consultations or precise book recommendations (on any subject) at www.LivingBooksLady.com, where you can also acquire access to her living-books database.

Michelle has authored TruthQuest History, an award-winning, deep, spiritually-probing curriculum exploring both American and world history…featuring living books, of course!  www.TruthQuestHistory.com.

After 26 years of homeschooling, Michelle is a librarian, columnist, speaker, and consultant.  She graduated from the University of Alabama (summa cum laude).  Michelle’s four children are now older, and she has seven cute grandsons!  For information on starting a library in your area: CPL@speedconnect.com.

Courses taught by Michelle

Age of Revolution is a series of thirty-four weekly lessons from TruthQuest History that explores God’s role in history from King James I to 1800.

Middle Ages History is a deep and rich literature-based history study…but with a difference. You will not learn the story of mankind; you will learn the lovestory of mankind. You will not focus on the rise and fall of human civilizations; you will focus on the arrow-straight line of God’s unchanging existence, power, love, truth, and plan for civilization. You will not simply ‘meet the culture’ or ‘get the facts;’ you will probe the truths of history so deeply that your students will be equipped to change their world!
