Audio resources are a valuable resource for our family. From books to lectures there is an abundance of information available and we find that every week we spend time listening and learning from others through audio.
This collection from Western Conservatory offers something unique in today’s gender blurring society, examples of women who faced hardship with strength, danger with courage and failure with fortitude and rather than abandoning their God-given role and taking things into their own hands, they used the beautiful gift of femininity to fulfill the callings for which they were created.
Voices from the Past: American Heroines in their Own Words offers girls examples of brave women who are strong and capable without forsaking their God-given role as help meet. They brought beauty to dirt floors and rough cabins, rested in their God through separation and war and loved in the midst of failure.
The titles in this collection are:
- Abigail Adams: Her Letters (3 CDs)
- The Letterbook of Eliza Lucas Pinckney (2 CDs)
- An English Family in the American Wilderness (2 CDs)
- A Bride Goes West (5 CDs)
Don’t let the word ‘heroines’ fool you. While this set tells the stories of women, our boys refuse to allow us to listen without them. Cattle roundups, rattlesnakes, Indian attacks, politics and war keep the boys interested.
Each CD set is beautifully enhanced with music and sound effects and read by Victoria Botkin. The historic background of the letters is offered and the language and writing skill of the women of the 1700’s is lovely and inspiring.
Voices from the Past offers not only delightful stories and admirable role models, but a valuable glimpse into the history of the brave women who helped to make our nation great. Behind each good man is a great woman and Voices from the Past introduces you to some of those women.
Western Conservatory is giving one Raising Olives reader the complete Voices from the Past Collection either on CD ($55) or MP3 download (39).
