I’m using Early Modern & Epistles history plans, I’m looking for a substitute for Hearts and Hands in Term 2, any recommendations?HollySParticipant
Trial and Triumph is similar—it’s a one volume book covering all of church history instead of a several volume set of books.

Thanks Becky and Holly. I appreciate your fast response, suggestions and encouragement. I left out some needed details, my daughter is an avid reader. She’s a freshman, with a 12th grade reading level. I’d like a book or books to level up. She may enjoy the book suggested. I can’t say for sure, but, I thought I’d like something a little older. I went to purchase the book on Amazon, it’s suggested age was age 12.
I wanted to “teach the children” not the curriculum. So, I thought I’d like to at least try to level up.
“Very interesting history for Christians. It is a little tough to read sometime as it talks of some of the tortures that Christians have endured, yet it needs to be told. Written so that older children/teens can know the truth of our history of our faith. Parents, please read first to decide what is appropriate for your child.”
That was a review from ChristianBook.com. also read review that adults can get good from it as well…. Something to that affect
.. My daughter is 14 but I chose it based on her interest in it and also her two older brothers had read it at ages 12-13(?) for MFW elementary level.
I also wasn’t using it to ‘level up’ as you say….
I might be wrong, but I was thinking I’d seen Heart of Dakota has that book scheduled in year 2 of their High school guides…. just example of how it’s been used at different grade levels with curriculum.
It seems I may have seen a good book of similar topic for older but I’m not coming up with anything yet…..
Heroes of the Faith by Gene Fedele
MFW uses it in their high school world history. I’ve not read it but it might work.
