From perseverance to compassion, To Every Nation is a 36-week study of real missionaries and their walk with God through the struggles of life. Through the study of the biographies of these precious warriors, your family will grasp the depth of God's provision, deepen their faith, understand suffering, and become equipped to walk through life's trials.
In addition to deep biblical truth, you'll also find practical life application, history, reading skills, and even penmanship. To Every Nation provides all of this in one unique homeschool history curriculum!
This curriculum could be used as a semester study, covering one missionary for each of the 12 weeks. Or it could be used along with the Christian Heroes: Then and Now novels to span the entire school year (36 weeks). In that model, each missionary is studied in-depth for three weeks. We have included daily lesson plans to help guide you.
This study is great for multi-aged learning as it features "Make It Your Mission" activities for both elementary and upper grades.
The notebook itself is age-appropriate for kids 4th grade and up. If you have kids younger than that, they can follow along with your older kids or have their own book. That's up to you. Some families have younger kids use blank notebooks to follow along with the older kids.
The softcover history pack includes all 12 of the Christian Heroes: Then and Now novels plus a softcover copy of the study. They are also written at about a 4th-grade reading level. We usually read them aloud as a family, so even the younger kids can enjoy them. For middle school and high school, I assign the novels as independent reading.
Please note: the digital version DOES NOT include the history pack which has all 12 of the Christian Heroes: Then and Now. These are not a requirement to complete the study. However, they are one of our favorite options for reading about the lives of missionaries, and we are offering them at a huge discount if bought as a set. (Retail price is $145 for the set.)

This is great material to supplement with missionary stories/lessons!
We loved using this as a guide to combine Christianity, different cultures and geography! Can be used for any age group. In fact, we enjoyed it so much after teaching this at home, I just got done using it in our Sunday school class at church too. It’s a great way to introduce children to a world bigger than their own and the hearts of missionaries gone before. I can’t wait to get the next one, waiting until it’s in book form tho. Thank you for all your wonderful resources!
