Mark your calendars now!

To honor Veteran's Day, on October 27th from 3-4 pm (CDT), Amanda Bennett and Tricia Goyer will be teaming up for a radio broadcast on Living Inspired  you won't want to miss! Tune in to learn more and have the opportunity to win Remembering You and the Veteran's Day Unit Study Adventure, a perfect combination!

When author Tricia Goyer took a vacation in Austria in 2000, she hadn't expected a novel to come out of the experience, or for her research to impact the veterans themselves. Remembering You is the fictional story of a television producer who tags along with her WWII-veteran grandfather on a final European tour of the battlefields he fought in. Expecting to record heartwarming stories about her grandfather for her network, she discovers the war has shaped him in ways she never could have imagined.

In Remembering You-Goyer's tribute to war veterans of all eras-she explores the cost of war, the strong bonds of family relationships, and the power of faith and forgiveness.

Meet Tricia Goyer Tricia Goyer is the author of 30 books and has published over 500 articles for national publications such as Focus on the Family, Today's Christian Woman and HomeLife Magazine. She won the Historical Novel of the Year award in both 2005 and 2006 from American Christian Fiction Writers, and was honored with the Writer of the Year award from Mt. Hermon Writer's Conference in 2003. In her fiction novels, Tricia writes contemporary and historical stories that feature strong women overcoming great challenges. She recreates historic wartime eras with precise detail through perseverant and comprehensive research.

Veterans Day--what does it mean to you? The history of this holiday is important; it exists because of the strength and conviction of past generations that we should always remember our veterans and their sacrifices for our peace and protection. Use this week-long study to become familiar with veterans, their sacrifices and their courage. Learn more about the American military system, how it protects us, and what is happening these days with our defense.

Veterans Day is a limited-availability excerpt from Patriotic Holidays, a four-week study which devotes one week to the exploration of each of the American patriotic holidays (Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day and Veteran’s Day).

Since we are both homeschooling moms, you KNOW that there will be plenty of ideas and tips, along with a healthy dose of laughter! The last time we did this, we broke all kinds of records. Put it on your calendars now, and make plans to join us. If you have questions that you would like to have answered during the show, please email them to me: amanda @
