Category Description for Your Story Hour Audios:

Don't waste that valuable educational time in the car. Use it for character development, learning history, or just for good entertainment. Originally designed for a radio audience, these stories are professionally written, enacted, recorded and produced, complete with music and sound effects. Stories are from the Bible, history, literature and everyday life. Albums generally contain 12 half-hour cassettes. Join Uncle Dan, Aunt Sue and Aunt Carole for inspiring excitement and entertainment.

If you ask my adult children about their childhood they will tell you how much they enjoyed Your Story Hour. These dramatized audio CDs presented my children with heroes to admire.

Books were the mainstay of morning lessons. But with audio we learned in our leisure, too. On a rainy afternoon or during summer vacation we heard stories (enacted by a professional cast) of men and women of the Bible, of history or science, and of less famous people who took steps of faith, ingenuity, generosity and courage.

I like the respectful flavor of these recordings - some first heard on radio as early as 1949. I praise them highly because I've not heard educational audio this enthralling. True-to-life episodes do not hide struggles, pain and even character flaws. Therefore, triumphs are all the more inspiring. We believe that we too can develop a more godly character and succeed in our endeavors - even among difficulty.

With Your Story Hour children are led to look-up-to and unconsciously imitate those men and women who live purposeful lives, who regard sincerity, selflessness and purity among the highest virtues. Modern education is wishy-washy with blurred lines of good and evil. In our homeschools we can joyfully use heroism, with its roots in Christian virtue, to its fullest advantage. Isn't this an important and empowering part of a Christian education?

After purchasing one album we began collecting others. A favorite of ours is album #7, "Patterns of Destiny on 12 CDs." A partial list of its heroes: John Bunyan, Florence Nightingale, George Mueller, Clara Baron, Louis Pasteur, Dwight L. Moody, George W. Carver.

"These stories are inspiring and faith building. They are great to listen to as a family, and provide opportunities to refer to in times when a similar character trait is needed in our home."

Love these storie
We listen to these CDs in the car and my kids love them. We have them almost memorized. They all are interesting story lines and have a lesson you learn with them. My one son has started writing songs because of the Fanny Crosby story.
