A Special Friday Giveaway - 5 Winners!

This Friday - we have a special giveaway for you! 

 5 Winners will get a Prize Pack consisting with our Special limited time Veterans Day Unit Study Adventure and Remembering You by Tricia Goyer.  Just in time for Veteran's Day - November 11, 2012!

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.

Tricia's new book, Remembering You, a WWII-veteran-inspired novel, is a tribute to war veterans of all eras. In it Tricia explores the cost of war, the strong bonds of family relationships, and the power of faith and forgiveness.

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.
