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.

This 32-page guide includes: 
- 5 daily lessons about heroism, patriotism, and the history of Memorial Day
- Stories of five unsung American heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice
- How to handle and fold a flag
- Ideas to support and honor current American soldiers
- Recommended picture book list
- Simple, meaningful crafts
- Healthy, delicious recipes
- And more!

What ages is this for? 
This guide is written for ages 5-12, but is designed to be done as a family study, so older and younger siblings can certainly participate.

How long is this study? 
This is a 5-day study, but you could certainly stretch it to two weeks or pick and choose your favorite activities for a weekend-long study. Our family plans to use this guide the week before Memorial Day as a great way to wrap up our homeschool year.

In Loving Memory of our Capt. Mark Weber

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.

Beautiful and thought provoking resource!

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!
