Heirloom Audio Production's In Freedom's Cause


In Freedom's Cause Audio CD Review

Hi Neighbors!

Here is a really exciting Christian audio drama we recently had the opportunity to review.  It was created by Heirloom Audio Productions.  It is called In Freedom's Cause Single Package, adapted from G. A. Henty's book of the same title.  This audio drama is made for ages 6 - adult and is 2 1/2 hours long.  My daughters listened to it in it's entirety in two nights.  They told me they couldn't get to sleep because they were enjoying the story so much.  You can order the 2 CD set for $29.97 plus shipping and handling.  You will also receive some added bonuses that includes an eStudy Guide, perfect for homeschoolers.

In Freedom's Cause tells the true story of William Wallace and King Robert the Bruce.  I want to add here that I could sit and listen to it for hours just because of the accents, but it truly is an interesting and attention grabbing story.  Set in Scotland this tale tells of how one man's faith moved a group of farmers, shepherds and merchants to defeat a mighty, trained, military force.

This is perfect for encouraging a love of history and reading.  The story is read/dramatized in a way to hold your attention from the beginning right to the end.  The drama is filled with sound effects, music and of course the voices of the characters.  I think the biggest problem you will encounter is trying to shut In Freedom's Cause off!

The eStudy Guide starts with an introduction to Henty, William Wallace and King Robert the Bruce.  The actual study guide is broken into three sections, Listening Well, Defining Words and Thinking Further.  The Listening Well will ask questions regarding the actual story they have listened to, with direct questions.  Defining Words will give your child/children the opportunity to look up and study words that they may be unfamiliar with.  Here are a couple of examples: claymore, cairn, vassal and Scone.  The last section is the Thinking Further that requires the student to draw deductions or speculate based on what they heard.  You can easily use this as an elective or work it right in to your homeschool program.  It is also great for quiet times.  The eStudy Guide can be printed off and placed in a binder for easier use.

Also available with the In Freedom's Cause Single Package is a MP3 Soundtrack Download and a download of a Printable copy of the Prayer of William Wallace.

One of our favorite parts is where Ned meets Marjory, who is up a tree.  He offers to help her down, but she politely refuses telling him she needed no help getting up the tree and needs no help getting down.  Of course we do have plenty more favorites throughout the entire drama.

Overall we as a family enjoyed In Freedom's Cause and recommend it to you.  To stay updated on future projects be sure to follow their social media pages.

I love this! I am going to have to look in to these - we love listening to audio stories while we run errands and spend time in the truck, or at lunch time in the middle of the school day! I love that they are getting educational truths while enjoying it. I have to admit - I also really love listening to different accents :)

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information.
