H.O.P.E. Homeschool Consulting, The Homeschool Channel, and Tropical Traditions

Prizes. I like ’em. You like ’em. We all like ’em.

And guess what? We’ve got PLENTY of awesome prizes this year for the 2012 Home School Blog Awards!

Here’s another sneak peek into some of the great prizes offered this year from three of our amazing HSBA sponsors.


H.O.P.E. Home School Consulting has graciously donated 3 – Educate the Home Educator Crash Course eBooks  for the 2012 Home School Blog Awards.

The Educate the Home Educator Crash Course explains the how-tos of homeschooling. This eBook is perfect for the new homeschool mom who desires to learn the steps on how to homeschool and serves as a refresher for the current homeschool mom.  This 331-page eBook is packed with information and includes an additional 52 pages of forms and templates.

Here’s a taste of what you’ll find inside the Educate the Home Educator Crash Course:

The Building Blocks of Homeschooling

How to Teach Homeschool Courses

The Essentials for Academic Success

Information Specifically for Mom

How to Make School Fun

How to Wrap Up the School Year

This wonderful eBook will be a “go-to” resource you’ll use for years to come and will help you encourage others to begin their path in home education. Personally, I wish that I had access to this guide many years ago when our family started the homeschool journey. It would have made things a lot easier for me… and probably the kids, too!



The Homeschool Channel is providing three of our winners with the Branches Of Eden DVD setThis DVD set is simply amazing. I always love it when I find a resource that combines scripture and science, and this DVD set does that in a really neat way. Your entire family will love these DVDs and use this set for years to come.

In Branches Of Eden – Examining The DNA Evidence Of The Biblical Account, you’ll discover the essentials of DNA and learn how the study of human genes reveal the fingerprints of the Maker.  Learn how DNA research verifies the existence of Biblical events such as The Tower of Babel, Noah’s Ark, and even Adam and Eve.

This five-part video series is perfect for your homeschool or for family devotion time. (I think these sets would also make great Christmas gifts!)

Sessions include: 

Science and Scripture: Is there a Conflict?

DNA: The Key to History

Noah’s Sons Fill the World

DNA Confirms a Promise-Keeping God

The Lost Tribes of Israel

There’s even a bonus session especially for children ages 6-12 called The ABCs of DNA. This session makes the human genome understandable to younger children and shows God’s incredible design in our bodies.

This DVD set will help your entire family understand that the Bible and science really do go together! Plus, it’s a great way to teach your children to be able to share and defend their faith with others.


Our friends at Tropical Traditions have donated a 32oz jar of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil and a copy of The Virgin Coconut Oil book to one winner in the 2012 Home School Blog Awards. My family uses Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil every single day! We have been convinced of the benefits of coconut oil for a few years now. We spread it on toast, stir it into our coffee, and use it as a lip balm and antiseptic on cuts and bruises. And that’s only a few practical ways we use coconut oil in our house.Tropical Traditions is a truly unrefined coconut oil. It is made on Mt. Banahaw and surrounding areas from organic coconuts. It is hand made using old-fashioned, traditional methods and is not mass produced or highly processed.The Virgin Coconut Oil book is a great way to learn about the health benefits of coconut oil.  Whether you are new to coconut oil or you’ve used it for a long time, this book will open your eyes. It is based on years of research and the experience of Brian and Marianita Shilhavy. You’ll learn how people in tropical cultures enjoy long and healthy lives and how you can change your diet and health for the better.


A great big THANK YOU to H.O.P.E. Home School Consulting, The Homeschool Channel, and Tropical Traditions for some wonderful prizes this year. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite homeschool blogs, and while you are at it, support our sponsors too! All of our prizes would make great holiday gifts for those you love – especially the homeschoolers in your life.
