The Answer Key for In Your Own Words will be added to your account as a digital download. You can use it on your device or print it.

Nothing will be mailed to you as this is a digital product. You can print the file and staple it together. We like to use fun duct tape to secure the staples and keep them from poking.






God has blessed the Not Consumed team with a great deal of education (including a variety of degrees) and decades of combined homeschool experience. Several team members have subject specific degrees or master's degrees in education, specifically curriculum design.

I believe that the Bible is the absolute authority in matters of faith and practice. It's 100% true, with no exceptions or figurative sections. I believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of Scripture; in one God eternally existing in three Persons; in the creation of all things, including man, as the direct act of God; in eternally secure salvation by grace through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the incarnation and virgin birth of Christ, and in His bodily resurrection; in the personal, bodily, premillennial return of the Lord Jesus Christ and His millennial reign on earth.

Though schools can be accredited, there is not an accreditation program for curriculum.
