A Bit About Us

Our Story

We are the Bechtel family from Oregon. We have nine children, 4 by birth, 3 adopted from Guatemala, and 2 adopted from Oregon. For more than 20 years we have attended home school conventions on the west coast as representatives for C.L.P.   Speedy Spanish began in 1988 as the result of many homeschooling parents requesting an elementary Spanish course. Many of our children have been involved in the development and production of this course. As a family business we try to serve our customers for the praise of His glory. In the process of time we have developed other books that are used with much gratitude by homeschooling families and Christian day schools. Besides Speedy Spanish, a few of these special products are Christian Ethics for Youth, School Days Devotional Praise, and Creative Touch.

We promote only books that will help develop Christian character and encourage spiritual growth.
