About Danika

Family Worship Fireplace

We educate our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord, to the glory of the Lord, in the joy of the Lord.
(Eph. 6:4, 1 Cor. 10:31, Phil. 2:14-15)

Friends, I’m so excited to have you join me here at Thinking Kids. My name is Danika Cooley.  Here, you’ll find great resources on Scripture, history, science and theology.  It’s my goal to encourage you in the task of intentionally raising children for the glory of the Lord.

I hold a degree in Interdisciplinary Visual Art from the University of Washington, and my background includes working with children with severe disabilities and volunteer teaching.  My children and I love visiting the zoo, the science museum, and the theater.  Hiking, read-alouds, science experiments, and art projects are frequent activities in our home.

My new YA narrative biography on Martin Luther is available for pre-order – you can save 35% by ordering now, and receive it as soon as it’s available! (Publication date: November 1, 2015 from Fortress Press.)

When Lightning Struck! is the exciting story of Martin Luther for young adults by Danika Cooley.

Look for Wonderfully Made, for 5-8 year olds in March 2016 from Christian Focus 4 Kids.

As a follower of Christ, a writer, a mother of four, a grandmother to one, and a home educator, my heart is to create quality material which points children to Jesus.  I hope to aid parents in their goal to disciple their children. I dream of a generation of parents training small people in the way they should go.  I envision a tribe of children rising up to become men and women of God.

Our kids deserve the opportunity to fill their minds with information of value. While you and I may not agree on everything, perhaps we can find it beneficial to see life from another viewpoint. Come on into my library, hang out a while, and share your thoughts on raising children of substance.

While you’re here, be sure to take a look at Bible Road Trip ~ A 3 Year Bible Survey.  The curriculum is free and printable, aimed at grades PreK-12, and ready for you to use. Don’t want to download it week-by-week? No problem. You can always purchase full-year PDF downloads in the Bible Road Trip Store.

Also, if you’d like to subscribe, you’ll find lots of helpful resources, free for you to download.
