I hope they keep this open for a few more days.  I just saw the offer and downloaded it, but those who see my Facebook post may not get the opportunity to follow through if it is taken down too quickly.  I know time limits must be set, but I also want to make an honest effort to follow through on the request to forward the offer. I will trust the process - I made an honest effort to honor Faithlife's request.  

Blessings,
Floyd

3 different things were included on my end, but removed 2 because I already have them:

1.  Logos 8 Basic

2.  90 Day Trial for Faithlife TV

3.  Homeschool library 

I only kept number 3 👍😁👌

It is something I would recommend to Logos.  I believe there is a market with homeschoolers.  If Logos agrees, I am sure this will be made available again at certain times in the year.  I had mentioned that there are 2600 children involved in the National Bible Bee.  These are children seriously studying God's Word.  They study hebrew, greek, memorize verses, do cross referencing, study books of the Bible, learn to use Strong's concordance etc.  If Logos tapped into this group who are mainly homeschoolers, there would be the potential of lifelong logos customers.  I posted the notice to the Bible bee forum, but only on June 2 in the afternoon which was not enough time for the majority to take advantage of the offer.

Still, the offer is a positive sign that Logos will hopefully see the potential for new customers by marketing to those that homeschool.  My son used a mobile ed course to learn Greek this year.  There is so much potential.  But I also think Logos could develop some kind of check to be sure that such offers go to homeschoolers only and not to those just looking to take advantage of free offers.  This offer was clearly intended originally for a specific target, not for everyone.

Hey Son!

It would be nice if FL extended the offer though I think the chances are slim as they already extended the original offer and widened the target audience.

While there are a few I don’t have in the Harvard “Works of Fiction,” it completed the rest of the “Harvard Classics“ I accumulated from back in the day of the Noet Friday sales.

Thanks, Faithlife.  I saw this with 15 minutes to go and was able to get my homeschooling daughter signed up.

Here is another vote for an extension.  I have contacted the education manager for a missions group we work with in Orlando.  If the offer can be extended, she may be able to contact their missionaries in the field arpind the world who are homeschooling in order for them to sign up.

Here, in Phoenix, we are beginning tutoring sessions tomorrow morning with a homeschooling family based in Turkey.  But I didn't see the thread in time to give them a heads up.

I wish I'd seen this earlier! I know a few homeschooling families who would've been interested. That said, I'm glad that FL built this package and I hope that more homeschooler-targeted material will appear. (Also, Verbum version, please!)

I'm sorry some of you missed out on this. We may consider doing something like this again in the future. If you'd like to stay in the loop on future offers relevant to homeschooling families, consider joining the new Homeschool Families Faithlife group.

Phil,

As noted by Jan, above, Faithlife has created a products page for the Homeschool Bundle.  However, I am not seeing a price.  Does this page just serve as a placeholder for the bundle or will it be available for purchase?

I thought there was one yesterday ($199 I think), but I'm not seeing it now.

Of interest to homeschoolers: the new Messianic Jewish packages are really good deals and starter includes Celebrations of the Bible: A Messianic Children's Curriculum. It's normally 19$, cost me 7 to get starter which included another 28 resources I did not own.

I think it's fair to say that Western Christianity often struggles to teach and apply the OT and can really benefit from a Jewish perspective. I had a look and it seems really cool to teach our children the significance of Jewish festivals. It has lessons for each by age group (preschool, primary, junior), specifies the time and materials required and includes handouts.
