Long time readers know of my love for the talented Young family and the varied ways they inspire others through painting, photography, and literary publications. Prints of some of Elspeth’s Women in the Bible paintings grace my daughters’ walls. I have subscribed to The Storybook Home Journal for several years and utilize it in my homeschool. Each issue is dedicated to one classic book that is perfect to read and study either personally or as a family. If you haven’t ever seen one I encourage you to go take a look at all the issues they currently have and chose a couple to try! They have everything from Little Women and Girl of the Limberlost to The Count of Monte Cristo and Silas Marner.
