Messianic Homeschooling Resources

I got these resources from the group I am on "Messianic Keepers At Home" .This is the link to the site  http://messianickah.ning.com/

They have allot of wonderful ladies there, that are encouraging and supportive. 
Books and Curriculum:

Heart of Wisdom
this is really an excellent curriculum / teaching method that you can use with any curriculum written by Robin Sampson. It is addressed to Christians (so uses the names ‘God’ and ‘Lord’) but that aside, I highly recommend it, and it seems to be a wonderful witnessing tool - a lot of Christians who had not previously considered the ‘Hebrew Roots’ are coming into the movement as a result of this curriculum. The book ‘The Heart of Wisdom Teaching Method’ is very good. The book ‘A Family Guide to the Biblical Holidays” is also excellent. 

Resurrection Resources Publishing
 is a specifically Hebraic curriculum, which does use the Name. I haven’t had a look at the curriculum itself, but I’ve heard good reports. It uses the Scriptures version of the Bible as it’s basic Bible text.

Celebrations of the Bible
This is a Jewish Messianic curriculum for teaching about the Feasts. Prepare and Pray is a specifically hebraic curriculum. A 36-week unit study on survival skills and emergency preparedness, based on the original text of the story “The Swiss Family Robinson”. Again, I haven’t seen this, but I’ve read good reviews, and I would love to get this!
