"I taught my son, Wesley, to read at age 3. At age 14, Wesley authored and published a Children's Book, A Day In The Paws of The Rock Of Arms. In January of his 6th grade year, Wesley sat for the SAT (not the PSAT) and scored 1370 - Verbal (490), Math (490), Writing (390). Wesley scored, in his 6th grade year, better
than 40% of all graduating seniors nationwide in 2009."
Mrs. Lavette Arms, Maryland
"I taught my granddaughter, Alexis, to read at age 4. This exciting curriculum lends itself to a literacy approach to reading including the phonetic and sight word approach. Children listen, sing, speak, read and write. Parents are our children's first teachers.
The materials are "easy-to-use" creating calm-productive sessions while the parent and child experience immediate success. A variety of activities such as an Alphabet Song Based On The Word Of God to sing; they listen to a Lullaby based on The Word Of God; they earn certificates; they search scriptures; they memorize and recite scriptures; they write, they read whole sentences with comprehension and fluency, thus laying the foundation for on-going success in reading.
This curriculum lends itself to good home-school relationships. It is an easily absorbed program for pre-school-aged children which provides a smooth transition into kindergarten and first grade programs. In addition, the curriculum provides remediation for school-aged children and adults."

Only God could have chosen Rev. Dr. Carol McIlwain Edwards for this assignment. It's such an honor and a privilege to be able to impart into our children the best there is, "Jesus Himself"! We often shake our heads and complain about the state of our children. But God has raised up His choice servant to sew into His generations of young people who will know Him, Honor Him and they will know who they are and they will reach their respective destinies. This occurrence always makes Rev. Carol and I chuckle. At the ripe age of 3 years old, Raechelle, my granddaughter, was carrying around one of my 500 or more page books. I immediately called Rev. Carol and asked, "Can you help me understand why this child is not interested in children's books? Rev. Carol stated, Raechelle has a vision of what she wants to read and immediately we began working with Reading With Jesus -You Can Teach Your 4 or 5 Year Old Child To Read In 90 Days. In the 2nd grade, Raechelle wrote her first book; she went on to receive the Presidential Award in Recognition of Outstanding Academic Excellence and the National Honor Students' Award. She continues to excel above and beyond in her classes. We credit these achievements to the foundation of Reading With Jesus - You Can Teach Your 4 or 5 Year Old Child To Read In 90 Days. To God Be The Glory!

"Eric learned to read with the program "before" entering kindergarten. In the first grade, he is reading on 2nd to 3rd grade level. The program works wonders."
Mrs. Jackie King Washington, Maryland
"Danielle is in the first grade, reading on the 2nd to 3rd grade level. Danielle's youngest sister is imitating reading and we'll be working with her too."

Home School Moms' Testimonials
"I found the books very easy-to-use. At this time, my husband and I were looking for a curriculum to teach our son to read. We were really pleased with this curriculum. It had all the elements I was looking for. I enjoyed the phonetic sounds. It had sight words; and it used full sentences from the beginning. As soon as my children were able to read the first unit, they were able to read short sentences. That really thrilled us!
Our four-year old daughter finished the book in record time! I had to hold her down to make sure the book lasted three months (LESS THAN 90 DAYS). She started in mid-summer and by September, she had completed all five units. She didn't want to do anything else until she finished each unit. One of the most powerful things about our children learning to read with this program is that they can read their Bibles!"
Rev. Laura Ottaviano, Virginia
"This letter is to thank you so much for your wonderful program! My son and I have already completed the first book and we are both enjoying the ease of this amazing program. We started using the program in mid-September. We worked for several weeks, then went on travel and returned home with much to do. I want to tell you that my life has been extreme chaos over these past few months, yet Luke is learning to read and memorizing The Word Of God!
I know this program was inspired by The Holy Spirit. I know that the success of this program has NOT been solely on what we have put into it. Your prayers, my prayers, my son's prayers and God's Grace have gotten us this far, and the words just cannot express my gratitude to you for being obedient to The Lord in producing this program. I do realize that with God all things are possible ... even in the midst of my extreme schedule. If The Holy Spirit had not guided me to you, I am sure my son would not be reading today! You are an answer to our prayers! May God richly bless you in all you do."
Mrs. Shawnie Hendrix, Virginia
What others say:
"The program is effective in two ways: It stamps out illiteracy and births "The Word Of God" in children!"
Pastor Ralph Duke, Virginia
"The program is self-esteem building! After our family completed the training program, our son, Timothy, was ready for the classroom setting and to learn. Timothy entered preschool and qualified for K-5 immediately. He is going to first grade before he turns 5 years old. He received 97.5 percent in Word Building and 100% in Math."
Pastor Willie and Evangelist Shirley Palmer, Virginia
"The scripture that comes to mind, "For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light (Matthew 11:30." The Lord is using this program to redeem our children so they can succeed. And it is an answer to prayer."
Prophet Brenda Bell, Virginia

Mrs. Tammy Carmon, Virginia
"The program is truly anointed and has blessed our two youngest sons. Brandon's self-confidence and reading skills increased and it was a refresher course for our oldest son, Walter. It is a tool that can be used to bless our two younger children."
Pastor and Mrs. Walter Hamilton, III, Virginia
"When my daughter first began in the training class, she wasn't at the point of reading, but with the blending of words, she immediately picked up reading so fast and became the Number One Reader in her class. And my toddler began to pretend to read. She takes her sister's books and training books and imitates reading. With this program, I have also seen where it has drawn me closer to my children."
Pastor Alvia McKenzie
"At an early age, my daughter began to read The Bible for herself from the King James' Version. If I give her another version she says, "This is not the original one."
Apostle Ernesto McKenzie, Panama
"My two sons have been getting awards for reading through Reading Is Fundamental and all sorts of programs. I am happy to be a part of this program."
Mrs. Vida Kwansa, West Africa
"We attempted to study with other programs and they were not very productive. Justin was intrigued with the newness of them and then it wore off and he lost interest. Not being in the education field, we were at a loss, but the way Dr. Carol's course is designed and the way she introduced it to us, gave us clear guidance on how to proceed with instructing our son. Because it is a Christian-based course, it helped us to grasp the Christian principles. Things are first spiritual before they are natural and the program is like a jewel for us. Although we are not teachers, the program has equipped us because we are dealing with it through The Holy Spirit. We cannot measure, and it is hard to grasp the scope because it's so amazing to see what God can do. We are participating in the training and teaching of Justin."
