TWGHW: FREE One-Year Homeschool Curriculum!

Teaching With God’s Heart for the World

By Ann Dunagan, Illustrated by Brenda Whitmeyer
Published by Family Mission-Vision Enterprises

“A one-year unit study curriculum, especially designed for homeschoolers,  incorporating God’s heart for world missions into nearly every subject!”

Ann wrote this two-volume world missions curriculum (with over 500 pages) several years ago to assist homeschooling families and Christian educators (in both church settings and in Christian schools) to impart a fervent heart for world missions into the next generation.

The curriculum includes 160 day-by-day teaching plans, missionary highlights, motivational mission stories, crafts, songs, prayer projects, and hundreds of ways to incorporate a passion for the lost into nearly every subject (including Bible Study, Family Devotions, Reading, Writing, Geography, History, Art, Science, and even highlights for Math).

The curriculum presents a “whirlwind tour” of God’s enduring passion for missions, all-the-way-through-history and all-across-the-globe. Using weekly unit-studies, this curriculum is created to be used over a one-year school year, although it can be easily adapted to be used throughout two years. It can be used as a core curriculum guide (for elementary children), or as a supplement to another curriculum. It is written especially for elementary grade levels, but it can also be used for the whole family to study missions together.

  1. Hello Pamela,

    The two-volume Teaching With God’s Heart for the World curriculum is available right here, all as downloadable PDF files. You have to download them on your computer and print out the pages. They are organized by various themes and topics.

  2. Pamela says:

    I was trying to get the one yr free Teaching with God’s heart that is free but I can’t figure out how to get it can you please help me. When my son was 4 he told me that he wanted to be a missionary. We homeschool and I know that this would be great to put into my plans for next yr. Thanks.

  3. Dear Ann,

    Thank you for the wonderful mission curricullum for homeschooler. we are using your works with our son. We are serving children in remote area of Papua (Indonesia)and we pray that our son would grow to love the lost as what God put in our heart. thanks for all. love to wait on another mission curricullum. God loves you Ann

    God’s donkey,
    Rudy and Merry Tejalaksana

  4. This curriculum is only available as FREE instant downloads (for you to print yourselves). Please also take a look at our other FREE resources . . . or our “hold-in-your-hand” mission books.

    And also our new Daring Daughters ministry, and FREE online e-course, specifically for moms and daughters.

  5. You’re welcome, Rachel!

  6. You’re welcome, Mindy! We appreciate you taking the time to add a thanks. Blessing to you as you teach your children about the needs in the world and God’s Great Commission. Bless you!!!

  7. Mindy says:

    Thank you so very much for posting these files for free!! I have been praying about how to incorporate mission lessons for our home school times! I’m thankful to God for answering this prayer!
    Also, I too was intimidated at the idea of saving them individually to my computer, but wanted to let the others know that it only took me about 20 minutes. Certainly worth it! :)
    Thank you again! God bless!!

  8. Rachel says:

    Thank you so much for your free pdf downloads. I love the Biblical emphasis on missions and loving others. You are truly blessing our family.

  9. Rachel says:

    How do I get a free copy of it? Do we print it ourselves or do we get one mailed to us?

  10. Dellaina — just to let you know, we are about to move this extensive “Teaching With God’s Heart for the World” curriculum OFF-LINE, with a need to “opt-in” to access it or to become an online partner with Harvest Ministry in order to access the entire resource (we’ll still keep a few sample lessons completely FREE to access). For the FALL of 2014, it will remain free. Blessings to you!

  11. Dellaina says:

    I can’t believe this awesome curriculum is available for free. What a generous gift, I’m so thankful. My children and I are very excited to get started. I have been looking for a Bible study for my children that isn’t dumbed down or filled with fluff. My sister-in-law is doing it with her children and it looks wonderful!

    Quick question: do you have a printed copy I can buy from you? I would be most glad to support your ministry that way rather than take advantage of the free downloads. If not, may I have permission to print and spiral-bind the downloads?

    In Christ,
    Dellaina

  12. not forever . . .

    But yes, it would be a bit of a job.

  13. The curriculum can be used either way. For younger children, I would also recommend some children’s books. Wycliffe has several good books.

    Here is also another link of some mission books for kids (I recognize several of these books, but I have not personally reviewed this whole list).

  14. It would be a huge job for us to re-scan these pages into a larger file. Right now, I don’t have the time to do that. Sorry about the inconvenience.

  15. Feel free to just click on the PDF files and save them to your computer.

  16. Previously, we had this available in two large downloads, but many people found it too large of a file. Currently, it is only available in these smaller files.

  17. lorie says:

    is there i dont have to download them one at a time? that would take forever.

  18. Brandi S says:

    I am wondering if this is a whole curriculum or just a supplement. I have young children so if I wanted to spread it out over a longer time, what would I do?

  19. Toni says:

    is this available just as 1 or 2 pdf files? It looks very interesting thank you so much for sharing your hard work!

  20. Tracy says:

    Could you please, put an option of downloading Volume 1 and Volume 2 in one download.

  21. Carolyn Lopez says:

    How do I download this to my computor?

  22. There may be a little overlap.

  23. Vickie Nee says:

    Hi, I’m confused by the layout of these. The TWGHW-1.pdf seems to include pages that are already in other pdf’s. I’m trying to print things in order. Can you help? Thanks!

  24. Dear Michelle,

    Currently, we do not have the curriculum in printed format. We have evaluated republishing, but the work involved in updating the material would be very extensive. Thank you for sharing this need. We will take this into consideration as we are making future plans. Bless you!

  25. Erene,

    Yes, we can send the Mission-Minded books to South Africa. We would have to check with the post office for international shipping charges.

  26. Mary,

    This curriculum is only available from us as a FREE download (there are a few places online you may be able to find used copies in printed format). If you are interested in The Mission-Minded Family, we do have a FREE portion available online. See this page for the link.

  27. Kristin,

    This will stay AVAILABLE and FREE for at least through the remainder of 2013.

    Blessings to you!

  28. Kirsten says:

    Do I need to download all this right now, or will it stay free?

  29. Mary O'Dell says:

    I am really interested in your curriculum teaching with God’s Heart for the World vol. 1 and 2. Is this still available free?? is it a download or binder? I would really like to get this as my son is leaning towards missions and will be a senior next year. Our family is missions minded and would like to use it for next years schooling. I’d prefer the binding copy form. Our family is on disability as my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer 2 years ago. So our finances are tight. Do you give out any scholarships or discounted??? Also am wondering on your book about The Mission Minded Family. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mary

  30. QUESTION:
    I am considering using your homeschool curriculum. It calls for using a World Missions Manual. What is that and where can I get it?

    God bless,
    Caroline

    ANSWER:

    Hello Caroline!

    The World Missions Manual was an adult (college) text curriculum that is no longer available. This resource was for the high school students in families using Teaching With God’s Heart for the World. You can ignore those readings and any others with material you don’t have.

    At the beginning of each week is a library/media list. Using this list with Google and simply finding info on the Internet would be sufficient, combined with math and grammar.

    Blessings to you!
    Ann

  31. Erene Schwarz says:

    Hi there,
    I used this curriculum almost 15 years ago with my children and I am so pleased to see that it is still around. I am getting ready to do some homeschooling for some children of “team” members in Cairo next year and would love to order the two books. Would it be possible to send them to me in South Africa?
    My mail address is Mrs Erene Schwarz, c/o P.O.Box 36414, Menlo Park, 0102, Pretoria South Africa.
    I would like to review it and then order whatever else we would need.
    Thanks, If you can let me know what the costs are I will get the payment to you asap.
    God bless you with your ministy.
    Blessings
    Erene

  32. michelle ski says:

    I wanted to print this but it’s too much for my computer to handle. because it’s in such small files, the printing place is refusing to print it for me. is there any way you have maybe volume 1 & volume 2 that i could send to them as a whole? I thank you for this great resource! Sincerely,
    Michelle

  33. You’re welcome, Erika! :)

  34. Erika says:

    What a blessing you are! This undoubtedly took so much time to write and then to scan and publish. Thank you so very much!!

  35. Anna says:

    Thank you for this valuable resource! My husband and I have a burden to go to a foreign mission field. Whether or not the Lord calls us to the foreign mission field, I think this is a wonderful way to teach our children about some modern “heroes of the faith” and to help our children develop a heart for missions and evangelism.

  36. Dawn, it also took us a LONG time to get all the material scanned one-by-one to have them available for free online. May this resource be a sweet blessing to your family.

  37. You’re welcome Sandy. It makes me smile to hear that you’ll be sharing it. May little “nuggets” bring LIFE and joy and focus — with a passion for God’s Great Commission and God’s Great Commandment.

  38. You can use any Bible translation that your family prefers. Our favorite translations are KJV and NKJV.

  39. You’re welcome Julie. Hope is can be a blessing as you use this to supplement your curriculum. Blessings to you!!

  40. You’re welcome Liz. I appreciate your sweet words of gratitude. It’s a blessing this material can be utilized for free. May the Lord bring encouragement and focus to your family.

  41. Liz says:

    Thank you so much for this amazing resource! I can’t wait to begin using it with our five kids! God bless you and your family! :)

  42. Julie Knight says:

    Thanks – you have blessed me so much today. I see a well rounded curriculum to use to supplement what I already have and for future studies for our family and family devotions. Thanks for all the work you have done on this and for offering it free to homeschoolers.
    sincerely BIG THANKS.
