1000th Post Party Giveaway: 5 Homestead Blessings Videos and $25 Gift Certificate from FBS Books
As a homeschooling mom myself, I’ve found that it’s not always easy to find all of the curriculum and resources that you’re looking for in one place.
So it was wonderful to realize that one of my current advertisers, FBS Books, not only has almost all of the curriculum that I have chosen for our next school year, but they even carry the one resource that I couldn’t find anywhere else!
(It’s Leagues and Legends– geography for early elementary students, in case you were wondering)
They are a family-owned business, providing classical and conventional homeschool curricula. They carry all of the traditional school subjects, as well as Fine Arts, Foreign Language, Bible and Devotional, and even supplemental resources for lighter summer studying.
It was hard for me to decide what I loved more about FBS… their homeschool resources OR their homesteading resources! You all know that I love me some homesteading books (and of course they carry this book, too)!
They have a wonderful selection of books on canning and preserving, gardening, raising animals, making cheese, and even traditional food classics like Nourishing Traditions and Real Food.
For my giveaway today, I get to feature another very fun part of their homestead collection: The Homestead Blessings videos!
These 1 hour videos each cover a different aspect of homesteading or homemaking, including Herbs, Gardening, Bread Making, Cooking, Quilting and Soap Making (and more). There are 10 videos in all, and each one features mom Vicki and her 3 grown daughters, Jasmine, Hannah and CeCe.
Last week, Abbie and I were thrilled to receive our copy of The Art of Herbs. We watched it together and were promptly inspired to go pick the wild mint growing in our backyard to make fresh, iced mint tea. After watching the video, 5 year old Abbie is now a pro at making the tea herself and loves to make a jug for me!
Take a look at this short promo video to get an idea of what these videos are all about:
This one is from their Art of Dairy Delights video, showing yogurt making:
FBS Books carries all of the Homestead Blessings videos, and today they are offering you the chance to win any 5 Homestead Blessings videos of your choice, as well as a $25 gift certificate for anything else in their store!

When I entered contest, I tried to find Keeper of Home on Twitter but it wouldn’t come up. Twitter couldn’t find it.
Hi Stephanie! I Love the new look for your blog! I’ve never come across FBS Books before, but Legends and Leagues can be purchased directly from Veritas Press or any seller who stocks their products…CHER and Tree of Life are two Canadian sellers I know of for certain. We used Legends and Leagues a couple years ago and the kids loved it! Veritas Press has to be one of my favourite sources for homeschool materials – their novel studies are great!
Just a random thought… 1) I LOVE the survey form instead of leaving a comment. Genius! 2) The survey allowed me in a second time. Opps! No, I didn’t enter twice, but I just thought I’d point it out…
Counting down the days for my book to arrive!!
I am super excited about feeding my kiddos better. Thanks for a great site!
I am not sure if I just cheated… I put that I liked Keeper of the Home on FB and Saving Naturally… but I did that a couple of days ago, not today and not specifically for this promotion. Does that count still? At least I will know for future giveaways…
i would love these videos .
I think it is awesome that you posted this giveaway! I actually just visited their site a couple days ago and sent it to my sister in-law. I love the site and can’t wait until my son is old enough to start teaching … he is 3 months old now :).
Great giveaway, thanks! You have a wonderful site!
Oh,i have been wanting these for a long time.i hope i win!
Seems like the videos are very explanatory. What homeschooling parent couldn’t appreciate that! I would definitely use these!
What a wonderful series. I have heard so much about these and would love to win.
Oh, what a great giveaway – would love to own these.

I saw these months ago, and I’ve wanted them ever since. Fun giveaway! We don’t watch tv anymore, so having something wholesome and educational would be fun to watch. I think my kids would love them too.
Christy, did you use the link for twitter that is provided on the giveaway page? Copy the link for each twitter page you’re supposed to follow, then paste it in the browser and hit enter. They are URL shortcuts that will redirect you to the right page. Easier than searching Twitter. If I’m remembering correctly, the twitter name was KeeperHome, but I’m not sure.

What a great idea! My daughter would love these!
I have 2 girls still in training. They’re 6 and 7 now and already love to help me with household duties. I would love to equip them with practical skills so they will be prepared to be keepers at home themselves. 🙂

And congrats on the 1000th post! that is amazing too!
LOVE the West Ladies!
