Happy Memorial Day! In the excitement of a three-day weekend and the beginning of summer, it's easy to ignore or forget the true meaning of this day. Memorial Day is ultimately a day for remembering and honoring those who have died while serving our country. Throughout this 5-day study, we will learn about real life heroes who have given their lives in service to our country. We will see and honor their true heroism—character, strength, courage, and sacrifice—as we strive to raise a generation who will continue to exhibit these qualities. In celebrating Memorial Day, we choose to remember their deaths in order to honor their lives.

My little family and I used this guide this past year as we sought to learn more about the hero's that have given the ultimate sacrifice. With such a tragedy hitting so close to home we found solace and comfort through this study. It brought tears, but also a sense of purpose to honor those who've given their all for our country. Great study, Brighter Day Press.
This is a wonderful unit study teaching the value and importance of Memorial Day. Wonderful resources included here, huge recommend!
Such a well written, thoughtful and all-American guide with beautiful literature recommendations and perfectly connected crafts that both my daughters (9 and 12) thoroughly enjoyed! Thank you so much!!
My three boys and I really enjoyed the Memorial Day Guide by Brighter Day Press. The stories included in the guide, as well as the book suggestions, were memorable and thought provoking. I was learning right along with my boys! More often than not I found myself in tears as I read these stories- it stirred within me profound gratitude to God and for the heroes of our country. My favorite part was how at the very end, Whitney makes a connection to our ultimate hero- Jesus Christ.
If you are on the fence, I cannot recommend this enough. It is extremely well done and you will not be disappointed. Thank you, Whitney and your team, for another beautiful and thought provoking resource!
I did this with my 7, 5, and 3 year old and we all loved it and learned so much. The books were wonderful, the crafts were simple, and the recipes were easy, healthy, and delicious! I love that I can use this study for years to come as my children grow!
