Books by Ellyn Davis

The Physics of Heaven. Read what some of the most beloved leaders in the Christian charismatic movement have to say as they explore the mysteries of God hidden in sound, light, vibrations, frequencies, energy, and quantum physics and they share their insights into how God may use these different expressions of creation to usher us into the fullness of Pentecost. Contributors include Bill and Beni Johnson, Bob Jones, Larry Randolph, Ray Hughes, Cal Pierce, Dan McCollam, Jonathan Welton, and David Van Koevering. “In this powerful book, Judy Franklin and Ellyn Davis assemble a team of seers who peer behind the curtain of creation to reveal the mysterious nature of our Creator. This book reads like a journal that emerged from a Holy Spirit think tank where great spiritual leaders gathered to discuss their insights into the complexities of God. Through their collective intelligence, these seers have emerged with new perspectives never before pondered.” (from the foreword by Kris Vallotton)  $16.00

Books about Christian Home Schooling by Ellyn Davis

My vision of education is derived from Michelangelo’s perceptions about his sculptures, and I have spent the better part of my life working out this vision with my own children and encouraging others to do it with theirs.

Most people are familiar with Michelangelo’s masterpiece, the David. An admirer once asked Michelangelo how he had managed to work with the rock to produce such an exquisite human form. Michelangelo replied, “In every block of marble I see a statue as though it stood before me, shaped and perfected in attitude and action…. I chipped away all that was not David.”

Another time, when asked about his magnificent angel statue, Michelangelo responded, “I saw the angel in the marble and I carved until I set him free.”

Not only was the artist able to see in average slabs of marble what none of the other great artists and sculptors of his day could see, but, since his statues were meant to tower over anyone standing near them, he changed the proportions of the figures so that when viewed from below everything seemed proportional. Michelangelo not only released what he saw in the marble, but he released it in such a way that everyone else could clearly see what he had seen in it.

So, what does this have to do with education? Everything.

Each person is, in a way, like Michelangelo’s sculptures. They are masterpieces hidden within “blocks of marble” that we get to help “free” so that they can fulfill their destinies. Freeing them from the marble should be the goal of every pastor, coach, mentor, teacher, and parent.

My two books about home education share this vision and also include practical advice for creating a home environment where your children can thrive as well as the best ways to teach the different subjects at home.

I Saw the Angel in the Marble focuses on discovering who your children really are and how they learn best: creating the attitudes and environment in your home where learning and relationships can thrive; understanding the many options that are available to you when you are home schooling, and much more. $18.95

I Carved the Angel from the Marble focuses on the nuts and bolts of schooling at home and the everyday aspects of teaching and learning together. It covers how to set the stage for learning to occur as well as the best ways to teach the major subjects at home – from language arts, to math, to history, to science. It also has a chapter on teaching high school at home. $18.95
