    My dd would love something like this. Anything visual with a splash of humor is right up her alley. I really enjoyed the sample episode. However, this is not a secular company. Episode 1 under samples used a reference to Moses parting the Red Sea. This made me want to dig further into their worldview.

    This is from their About Us page:
    "The long-term hope of our company is that we create products that will be useful to moms, interesting to students, and glorifying to God."

    And this:
    "...we had the idea of starting a company just to cater to homeschool families after watching our own wives homeschool for a few years."

    combined with this:
    "It was only in 2015 that we realized moms needed products created just for them as much as students needed educational products. As a result, we launched the first of a new series of products aimed at teaching moms more about homeschooling itself."

    makes it clear how they feel about women and their wives ability to homeschool. It's too bad because I was willing to deal with the occasional biblical reference.

    So wait..it's started by men whose WIVES homeschool in an effort to teach mom's about homeschooling? Shouldn't the women be running it if they are the ones who homeschool?

    Men to teach the women who are homeschooling how to do it....

    Yeah, my thoughts exactly. They are insulting the very people to whom they are targeting their product. So unbelieveable!
