I use this link regularly to look up Bible verses and see what they look like in different translations; there's much more to the website.

The Homeschool Resource Roadmap
I also use this link quite often to look up curriculum to see if it is aligned with Common Core Standards or not. The Roadmap "provides current and prospective homeschooling parents with free summative information about more than 3,800 homeschool-oriented resources in over 300 different content areas," according to their webpage. I can tell you that they have so much information there that you can get overwhelmed. It's great to go into it with a particular curriculum in mind to check to see if it's aligned with Common Core Standards. It's also great to find out about curricula that you've never heard of before, but be ready to spend some time there!

Cathy Duffy Reviews
I find myself suggesting this one to most new home educating parents. I used it a lot when I first started out too. Cathy Duffy has reviewed quite a few different curricula and has a number of resources.

Rainbow Resource Center
WOW! What a website and what a catalog! They have over 50,000 homeschool products - curriculum and games and planners, oh my! Honestly, order a catalog, it's as big as a phone book (or what they used to be) and each item in it has been personally reviewed by someone in the company. If you ever find yourself with a little extra spending money, it's easy to use up on their clearance/sale page!

Kiddie Records
Kiddie Records Weekly began in 2005 as a one year project devoted to the golden age of children's records. This period spanned from the mid forties through the early fifties and produced a wealth of all-time classics. Many of these recordings were extravagant Hollywood productions on major record labels and featured big time celebrities and composers. Over the years, these forgotten treasures slipped off the radar and it became our mission to give them a new lease on life by sharing them with today's generation of online listeners. Each week throughout the year we'll add a new recording. We took a break in 2008, returning in 2009 for one final year. So whether you are hearing these records for the first time or reuniting with a childhood favorite from long ago, we hope you take great pleasure in your trip down memory lane!

Life in the Roman Empire:Historical Fact and Fiction
Each article provides an in-depth treatment drawn from information in books and articles by academic experts. Whenever I can, I bring in details related specifically to being a Christian during that era. The site features: 1) In-depth articles on many topics, including adoption, slavery, citizenship, crime and punishment, and chariot racing. 2) Reviews of fiction set in the Roman era with its suitability for wholesome supplemental reading by teens in mind. 3) For fun, Latin puzzles related to the articles for language learners or puzzle lovers. 4) For the “full Roman experience,” Roman recipes from an authentic Roman cookbook from AD 100 with an invitation for people to send me modern versions to post and share.
