What people are saying…

…about Philosophy Adventure:

Stacy Farrell does a good job of introducing young people (6th-12th grade) to the world of ideas — ideas that are crucial to understand because they continue to shape our world and the way people think.

Nancy Pearcey endorses Philosophy Adventure

“In all my years of research, seldom have I picked up a book on philosophy and felt that I couldn’t put it down. That changed when I encountered Philosophy Adventure…. I highly recommend Philosophy Adventure to students and educators!”

Linda Hobar

The Philosophy Adventure: Pre-Socratics course makes the study of philosophy very accessible, even to students as young as sixth grade. The worldview component provides the balance so often lacking in other philosophy courses. Farrell has clearly spent many years developing and presenting this course material to be able to present such a comprehensive presentation. I can’t wait to see what she does with Plato and Aristotle!

“User friendly, solid biblically, academically sound, and culturally relevant, Stacy Farrell has done an excellent job putting together this comprehensive curriculum exploring the history of philosophy to help our children discern and defend truth.”

Tracy Klicka

“This captivating overview of pre-Socratic philosophers…will help instill a love for knowledge and wisdom in your child’s heart and mind…”

Clay Clarkson

“A philosophy curriculum your high schoolers will just love—looks like a magazine and reads like one, too…. Robust and  challenging…engaging and readable….”

Hal & Melanie Young

“Philosophy Adventure is sure to engage the attention of every 21st century student, young and old. I encourage parents to check out this curriculum, not only for their children, but for themselves as well, that all families may cultivate a love of wisdom.”

Jay Ryan

“How pleasant and sustaining a thought that as comprehensive and well-conceived a resource as Philosophy Adventure exists.”

James Stobaugh

…about The Wise Woman with Literary Analysis Journal Questions:

“The Wise Woman with Literary Analysis Journal Questions is fantastic. Its beautiful design is visually compelling. The discussion questions—the entire presentation—is like nothing on MacDonald I have ever seen. I just love it! Many congratulations on this masterful way of introducing young readers to George MacDonald. I wish every home school family would use it and encourage readers toward a love for George MacDonald early in life.”

Michael Phillips

“What a treasure to find literary analysis questions written from a Christian world view. Each chapter of The Wise Woman is followed by questions designed to make students think critically about the reading, as well as their own spiritual walks. Mrs. Farrell has crafted questions that help students unearth the profound truths in George MacDonald’s
captivating tale.”

Dean and Associate Professor of English, SAGU

“I found myself pleading with book characters to make right choices and realized that I have struggled with some of the same issues that gripped them. I began to wonder how I could apply what I was reading to my own life… In addition to the deep wisdom found in the story, the supplementary journal questions left an impression on my heart as they caused me to stop and think even more clearly about the messages and life lessons coursing throughout this amazing book.”

Renee Higgins

…about Creative Freewriting Adventure:

“When the pressure is off, and teens are free to write for fun, their creativity can soar—often with stellar results! Stacy Farrell’s thematic writing prompts encourage teens to engage with some of the great philosophers in a way that’s both nonthreatening and exciting. Each prompt invites students to experience a snapshot moment in time and describe it using sensory details. For families who love to incorporate writing across the curriculum, Creative Freewriting Adventure is a winner.”

Kim Kautzer

“Stacy Farrell is a brilliant writer with a knack for presenting worldview issues in an engaging manner. These innovative writing exercises are aimed at inspiring thoughtful, mentally acute students aware of the philosophy behind their writing. Older students will have plenty of material to work with in each free writing session, and the assignment instructions will give them both structure and additional material to use in their creations. I’m excited to share this adventure with my young men.”

Danika Cooley

“Bravo, Stacy Farrell! Creative Freewriting Adventure is sure to get kids writing without complaint! The tie-in to history and philosophy are genius. So are the writing prompts that take away the aggravation of figuring out what to write by asking thought-provoking questions that get kids thinking and, even better, laughing. I can’t wait to use this with my own kids!”

Terri Johnson

“If you are looking for a tool to motivate reluctant middle school and high school writers, Creative Freewriting Adventure is it. Author Stacy Farrell goes beyond writing prompts by sharing a scene the reader is immediately drawn into, one that he can see, hear, feel, taste, and touch. She then turns the scene over to him and equips him with the tools to imagine the impossible and share it with the world.”

Bonnie Rose Hudson

“I have absolutely loved every work I have looked at by Stacy Farrell, and Creative Freewriting Adventure is no exception. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting and am having a hard time not getting my kiddos started on it right away, so I can see what they come up with in response to her great prompts. This will be a very fun and interesting writing resource for your family!”

Leslie Nunnery

“Stacy Farrell has created a writing resource that even reluctant writers will love! Her creativity will be appreciated by both teacher and student alike. She takes material that is challenging and makes it fun. Her prompts and suggestions allow students to respond with their own unique personalities and styles while giving enough guidelines to make them feel comfortable. In short, this is one of the best creative writing curriculums I have ever seen for older students!”

Wendy Bilbo Hilton

“What a delight Stacy Farrell’s Creative Freewriting Adventure—A Journey into Freewriting is! Instead of simply writing stories, students are asked to become characters themselves and step into the thick of an adventure in progress. This is prompt-writing ingenuity at its best. Storywriters will ask for more, and I suspect that even the most uncreative students will enjoy exploring these new worlds.”

Sharon Watson

As she has done with every other biblical worldview resource she has written, Stacy Farrell once again gently guides middle and high schools students into the world of critical thinking. This time, ingenious 15-minute writing assignments create scenarios where the writer becomes an integral part of the story as they interact with both fictional and historical characters. Guided by simple prompts that employ all of the senses, reluctant and eager writers alike will be drawn into the imaginative stories of Creative Freewriting Adventure. If your goal is to encourage your students to engage with writing in a way that is both fun and meaningful . . . begin here.”

Marcy Crabtree

…about the Mere Christianity Critical Analysis Journal:

“There has never been a mind quite like C. S. Lewis … Stacy Farrell has done a great service by providing insightful study questions for students and adults who want to work critically through this Christian masterpiece.”

Israel Wayne

Between two bookends on a shelf above my desk sit the handful of books that have been most influential in my walk with God. In the center, honored above all the rest, is C. S. Lewis’s classic, Mere Christianity. I have read five or six times, more often than I have read any other book. My recommendation of Mere Christianity, and this excellent study-journal based on it, is enthusiastic and unqualified.

Michael Phillips

Stacy Farrell hits another home run with the Mere Christianity Critical Analysis Journal. With insightful questions and thoughtful responses, she’ll guide students into thinking deeply about the most important issues of life while reading C.S. Lewis’s classic defense of Christianity.

Hal & Melanie Young

Stacy’s ability to demystify the most complicated theological concept with the simplest question is extraordinary: “Would you rather a person pretended to be nice when they were actually nasty? Why or why not?” I highly recommend this vital contribution to the study of the works of the great C. S. Lewis.
