Re: MFW or HOD?
It's hard, b/c what works for one family may not work for another. We've used MFW since the beginning (going on our 5th year hsing). I've looked at HOD, but for various reasons always walked away from it.
Last year we went to our state convention and I went into really wondering if we'd stick with MFW. I was looking at HOD at the convention too...I knew with-in an hour of going between both curriculums that HOD was NOT for us and to stick with MFW.
I know that's not helpful, just our experience. I would really pray about it. I think you said your convention was May 4th? So, I'm sure you've looked at both curriculums by now (I haven't read through this thread).
GL to you!
