True or False? Signers of the Declaration

FacebooktwitterpinterestmailFacebooktwitterpinterestmail
In 1776, 56 men signed their names on a document that they knew might well mean their certain deaths as traitors to England.

 

Standing on principles of faith and liberty, these men forged a powerful call for freedom and human dignity still resonating today in America.

 

Yet, historical revisionists have distorted or attempted to wipe away every trace of this nation`s Christian heritage, including the heartfelt faith of these founding fathers!
 

We need to arm our families with the TRUTH about the founding of our country and provide the knowledge to be able to authoritatively speak to those in your sphere of influence. The founders were prolific writers. We don’t have to wonder what they believed! It’s available to teach our families so we can be thoroughly equipped to spread the truth. It was never needed more than now. Our freedoms are eroding quickly, and we need to be able to have the wisdom to protect our the freedom we enjoy.

 

So, let’s play a little game!

 

Here are 4 statements that you commonly hear about the founders of our country, specifically the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

 

Do you know if they are true?

2 Books Every American Family Should Read

FacebooktwitterpinterestmailFacebooktwitterpinterestmail

Don’t you love reading together as a family?  It’s a fun time, a “together” time, an inspiring time.  There’s nothing like snuggling with a couple of kids while a toddler falls asleep under the coffee table. 🙂 (at least, that’s how it happened at our house!!) I have some books that are perfect for family reading time. Let me tell you about them!

Rick and I wrote these books last year for Master Books Fight for Freedom + America’s Struggle to Become a Nation.

Yes, they are written as 4-6th grade history curriculum, but the whole family will enjoy hearing these stories from our founding era – stories every person growing up in the 1800’s in our country knew. But, these are not just a conglomeration of boring facts to memorize and bits and pieces with no meat. This is a wonderful gathering of true and engaging stories from America’s History. So, they are equally appropriate, used as a Family Read-Aloud book.

When we lose our history (our heritage) we will lose our freedoms; that’s what’s happening today in our country. That’s one reason we wrote these books – to do our part in preparing this generation to stand for truth and principle as the men and women you’ll hear about in these books did.

Did you know that Judge Roy Moore has endorsed these books? He personally called me and told me he wants every American family to read them!
“Rick and Marilyn have done a remarkable job of documenting the struggles and sacrifices of brave men and women who, ‘with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence,’ risked their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to build this land we love. Every American would benefit by reading these marvelous works designed to preserve our heritage as a nation.” –Chief Justice Roy Moore

Here are 2 paragraphs every American should know by heart- The preamble to our Constitution, and the preamble to the Declaration of Independence!

What Were Their Names? – Tuesday Teaching Tips with Marilyn

FacebooktwitterpinterestmailFacebooktwitterpinterestmail

Tuesday-Teaching-Tips-FYTSWe love to do part of our school outside during the month of May.

We sit on the deck while I read history, economics, science, etc. We’ll be finishing up For You They Signed this month. (Kelley, Kasey and I have been reading through it together.)

When I read history to them, it inspires meaningful conversations about freedom, civic involvement, things that matter.

How many of the 56 signers can you name?

How many of them do we have evidence, from their own writings, that they were born again Christians?

The answer may surprise you!

You can also listen to Uncle Rick tell stories from some of the American Revolution Heroes Series:
