My name is Danika Cooley. I love Scripture, history, science and theology. Those are the things I write about for children. For parents, my desire is to share great resources, and to encourage you in the task of intentionally raising children for the glory of the Lord.
I hold a degree in Interdisciplinary Visual Art from the University of Washington. My background includes working with children with severe disabilities and volunteer teaching. My children and I love visiting the zoo, the science museum, and the theater. Hiking, nature walks, read-alouds, science experiments, and art projects are frequent activities in our home.
As a follower of Christ, a writer, a mother of four, a grandmother to one, and a home educator, my heart is to create quality material which points children to Jesus. I hope to aid parents in their goal to disciple their children.
I dream of a generation of parents training small people in the way they should go. I envision a tribe of children rising up to become men and women of God.
My goal is to help you, the parent, disciple your children ~ that we may all raise godly, thinking kids. Our kids deserve the opportunity to fill their minds with information of value. While you and I may not agree on everything, perhaps we can find it beneficial to see life from another viewpoint. Come on into my library, hang out a while, and share your thoughts on raising children of substance.
While you’re here, be sure to take a look at Bible Road Trip ~ A 3 Year Bible Survey. The curriculum is free and printable, aimed at grades 1-12, and ready for you to use.
