"Easy to Read,"  "Builds Up the Teacher,"
& Prompted "an Immediate About-Face"

Katherine’s excellent book is easy to read. It will not only help you understand God’s purpose for math and how math testifies of God, but it will also give you some practical suggestions for implementing what you learn into your home school program. In addition, she rates current math curriculum as to how well they present math in the context of God’s Word and includes a sample idea notebook for using math in your daily lives. Congratulations, Katherine, on a job well done!

Writer & Educator

In reading Katherine’s book I was encouraged to explore more of God’s character in the study of mathematics. I was beautifully reminded that our studies are only tools we can use to open our children’s eyes to a creative and awesome God. She offers practical tips to help and builds up the teacher so they can teach with confidence, or rather relax and enjoy the learning process with their child. Math truly can be a treasure hunt for how God works.
