I am writing a Christian homeschool curriculum using Waldorf pedagogy entitled “Rhythm of Grace.” I am currently in the process of writing the Kinder6 curriculum, which I will be using for my own daughter this upcoming year. I would love to offer my curriculum FOR FREE to anyone who is willing to use it. It does not need to be used 100% as is – I know I have never used a curriculum 100%. It does need to be used with your children and not just read through. Here are some details about the offer:
- Develop a Christian curriculum using Waldorf pedagogy .

My Basic Christian Beliefs:
I believe there is One God who exists in three persons: Father, Son/Jesus, Holy Spirit.
I believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It should be read literally, taking into consideration the type of literature. It is the ultimate means of truth (truth is not relative).
I believe man was created by God to bring Him glory (to make Him famous). Man is born sinful, which separates him from God. Salvation is through belief in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ which restores our right relationship with God.
