Teaching the Faith at home doesn’t have to be boring, dry, or fluffy! Spirit of Truth Homeschool Edition is a refreshing way to bring our Catholic Faith — and all its beauty and depth — to your children.
As the first and primary teacher of your child, you’ll find Spirit of Truth to be a beautiful resource that deepens your family bonds by growing in faith together all while helping you lead your children into a profound encounter with Christ.
We don’t want children just to learn the Faith, we want them to become saints. That’s why each lesson in Spirit of Truth includes ways your child can apply what they’ve learned to their own lives and grow in holiness. In the early years, your children will learn the basics of prayer, eventually understanding the spiritual life in its fullest sense as they grow and mature into the teen years.
Throughout this series, your children will explore and come to learn the Catechism of the Catholic Church by experiencing it, not just reading about it. They will be led to not only see the depth of our Catholic Faith, but also its richness and beauty.
While our chief focus is intellectual and spiritual growth, we also want you and your children to have fun learning the Faith. That’s why Spirit of Truth goes well beyond a traditional read/ask/answer format. Instead, we give you the tools to guide your children through fun activities like:
All provided to help your children enjoy learning and ignite their natural wonder.
Young children are introduced to the loving goodness of the Blessed Trinity, meet the members of the Holy Family, and learn who the saints are and what they teach us.
Young children begin to develop an awareness of God as our Father in Heaven, the creator of Heaven and earth, who is all good, who created them in His image and likeness, and who loves them unconditionally.
This year focuses on how much children are loved by Jesus Christ, and how his death and Resurrection has opened the way to heaven.
Children learn what the Catholic Church is, who the Holy Spirit is and how He guides Her, and what it means that Jesus continues His mission through Her.
Most of this year focuses on the moral life, our loving response to God's great gift to us, and children explore more deeply what it means to be created in the image and likeness of God.
This year provides an in-depth exploration of God's grace in the Sacraments, with a focus on what a Sacrament is and why Jesus instituted them.
Children spend this year immersed in God's Word in the Sacred Scriptures, and explore how the Bible communicates God's plan of salvation to us.
Each grade level of Spirit of Truth provides a wealth of lessons and activities that can be completed over at least 30 weeks, though you may spend more or less time, depending on which ones you choose to do with your children.
This answer depends on your children’s maturity and reading level. We recommend you review each grade level using the preview available on this page. Each grade level of Spirit of Truth could easily be adapted one grade level up or down, and perhaps more, but this will depend on your children.
In grades K-5, as long as you have a parent’s guide and student workbooks for each child, you are ready to go. We recommend each child have his or her own copy of the Bible to use in grades 6, 7 and 8.
