Bible Gateway
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!

Florida Parent Educator's Association
The FPEA has one of the largest homeschooling conventions in the world in Orlando every May, along with an awesome graduation ceremony for its seniors - but that's not all that it's about.

The Home Education Foundation
The Home Educator's Voice at the Capitol is Brenda Dickinson's website with all of the latest news about what is going on in Tallahassee regarding the laws that affect homeschooling. Sign up for her newsletters and be ready to make a call, write a letter, or send an email when she puts the word out that it is needed. And please, consider a donation.

My Father's World Curriculum
This one is near and dear to my heart - we've been using this curriculum for three years now and thoroughly enjoy it. Not only that, I've seen God working in our family through this curriculum and that's a wonderful thing to see!

Experience Astronomy
An online astronomy course taught by IntoxicatedOnLife's Luke Gilkerson - this one was a complete lifesaver for our family! The course is a done over a full year and is very informative. It came at a time when we needed more structure, but was flexible enough that we could still deal with the family stuff that was going on at the time and not feel that science was being neglected. And - my daughter still loves astronomy and spouts facts that she learned from that course now - four years later!
