Season of Re-education

& Renewing of the Mind




Course Contents

for the

Season of Re-education

& Renewing of the Mind



Here is a list of all the items for this

"season" that I recommend.  Write-ups are not

here; just resource titles, in alphabetical order.

I also added prices for your convenience.

(So the dots next to each item do not take you

anywhere; they're just bullets.)


All Lifestyle of Learning books

(in orchid print and in a box) must be

ordered on the Lifestyle of Learning Order Form

and sent directly to the Howshalls.

(Directions are on those two pages.)




Blue Print = Required for course; available through us


Orchid Print = Required for course; available from Howshalls


Gold Print = Choice of several options, must choose ONE


Green Print = These items are optional for the course; required

       only if you have a need for them




Foundational Portion

of the Course (Season)


For all parents with children of all ages


Course Enrollment Fee ($15) If you are wanting a Certificate of Completion of us, or need a Certification of Participation"


Course Syllabus ($7) (This is NOT included in the Guide-a-log or online. This book is like a "guided journal" through the course, giving you a place to record what the Lord is doing in and speaking to you; what you're getting out of it. This is a very simple approach, with each page consisting of two charts for two different books of the course, with a few questions for you to answer; to personalize what you are reading. Here is a Sample page from "Season of Re-education" Syllabus  just to give you an idea of what it's like - and how simple and personalized it really is. For those taking this course to "qualify" to homeschool in Washington state, the syllabus must be photocopied when you are done and sent to us.)

Lifestyle of Learning Books:  We have only two titles left of these books.  The Howshall's discontinued all publication of their books some time ago, and we purchased the remainder of their inventory, all of which is now gone, with the exception of two titles.  However, since our course was built on and around these books, and hundreds of homeschool moms are in the process of taking this course (having invested countless hours and a good chunk o' coin into the resources for this course), we have made these books available another way.  Please go here for a Short Intro to Lifestyle of Learning Library.

REMEMBER!!!    This is a SEASON!  Not a sprint to cram all these books into your head in a short period of time!  If you want to reap all you can from it, you need to allow God to take you through this season in His timing and His order.  Please do not skip ANY of the rest of the sections of this "Season..." area if you want to fully understand what it's all about and not "OD" on it!


Are you beginning to see that this course/season is really a "major overhaul" on all the areas of your life - not just "homeschooling" - that are in need of attention and change?  That's because "homeschooling" is not a separate "area" of your life; it IS your life!  However, the Holy Spirit knows just how to lead you through this season without overwhelming you.


Note that many of the above resources are not full-size books, but are booklets or small books. Also, if you take this course to earn a Certificate of Completion from us, not all of each of the above is required reading; for some of the books, only specified portions are use. It's all explained fully in the Course Syllabus.


All authors are given with the write-ups for each of these books, and the write-ups on all of the above resources (except the Lifestyle of Learning books) are scattered throughout the various sections of our online catalog and have a quilt square next to them so that you can easily identify them as being part of the course.
