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)

My name is Danika Cooley.  I love Scripture, history, science and theology.  Those are the things I write about for children.  For parents, my desire is to share great resources, and 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.  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, nature walks, read-alouds, science experiments, and art projects are frequent activities in our home.

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.

My goal is to help you, the parent, disciple your children ~ that we may all raise godly, thinking kids.  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 1-12, 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.
