L.I.F.E. School is an LDS Based, Complete & Integrated Curriculum Created for the LDS Family & Classroom

LIFE School Curriculum is an LDS gospel based homeschool program that is built on the foundation of the scriptures, giving the child a sense of who he is and setting him on the path of discovering his divine mission. It is presented in a four year chronological rotation, integrating all areas of study to create a clear picture of the history of our world.

Redevelopment & Restructure
We began developing the LIFE School program in 1998. At the time, the key developers were Patti R. Landes, a lifelong educator and author, and Elaine A. Cannon, former Young Women’s General President of the Church. Over the years our curriculum team has changed and grown, yet we have continued our pursuit of the best learning models from around the world. We have studied Finland’s model (the top education country in the world), the Montessori method, Reuven Feurestein’s mediated learning, blended learning, experiential learning, project-based learning, and many other great approaches to education.

We are currently modifying and completing our entire four volume program to include the best learning concepts and approaches our curriculum team has been able to bring together in one program. These highly effective teaching models are being integrated into our daily lessons in ways that are easy to present, fun, hands-on, and engaging for your children.

Our Commitment
If you’ve ever purchased curriculum from us in the past, you have lifelong access to those materials and your Family Room Pages will automatically be updated as we make changes, giving you complete access to all of our new materials.

If you are new to LIFE School, know that as we grow and improve, your purchase entitles you to all future upgrades and improvements. And the best news is, your digital license can be passed on to your grandchildren!

We are excited for the future in gospel based education, as we strive to “educate children in the Lord’s way.”

When you purchase LIFE School materials, a portion of your payment is donated to the LDS Church’s General Missionary fund.

“Any education is little more than miscellaneous learning if God is not at the foundation.” 
Patti R. Landes

Pillars of Education


Many years ago, when we first began writing the LIFE School curriculum, the research and writing process created new opportunities for learning and discovery for the authors, as well as the students. One thing we learned during the prayerful and creative process is that the Savior had a consistent way of teaching. His methods always included key effective methods of teaching so that His listeners would not only understand His words, but would feel His words, their hearts would be permeated, and they would feel deep burning desire to change – to become His disciple.

We called this method “Educating Children the Lord’s Way”.

As we applied these methods in our homes and in classrooms, children began to bear testimony and resolve and commit to living better lives. The principles are true.

Last Fall, as I was perusing the newest issue of the Ensign, I was overcome with excitement when I discovered the new program recently created for the youth of the Church “Teaching the Gospel in the Savior’s Way.”

The words are slightly different than our own simple phrase, but as I read through the concepts, they were the same – eternal truths.

The Church has created some inspiring instructional videos that make clear, the way we should be teaching our own children.

We invite you to watch this first one.

Come, Follow Me: Teaching the Savior’s Way

  • Prepare To Teach

    The Savior knows what your children need to hear and Learn. Study and ponder the lesson material. Highlight those concepts you feel inspired to share with them. Pray for the Spirit to be present in your homeschool so that your child’s capacity to learn will be increased. Change your lesson direction as dictated or impressed by the Spirit.

  • Help Children Discover

    When teaching your children, don’t lecture. Ask questions. Listen. Encourage them to talk. Be a facilitator or a guide to help them actively learn. Help them to discover principles and concepts for themselves.

  • Invite Them To Act

    As your children learn, invite them to act on what they have learned. This is especially applicable to gospel principle – but can be applied to every aspect of their learning. Encourage them to testify of the things they learn.

  • Allow Them To Teach

    “Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.”

    This famous quote illustrates perfectly, the concept of teaching. Involve your children in the teaching process. Give them opportunities to prepare and share lessons with family members. Encourage them to lead uplifting discussions that will draw out feelings and share knowledge.

  • Show Them You Love Them

    “They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.”

    Love is the key. Demonstrate your love for your children often during your teaching. Be patient. Listen with love and respect. Develop feelings of respect and love in your home.

    “Where love is, there God is also. Where love is… we want to be.”

    Create a homeschool where your children want to be… and where they love to learn.
