Northern Family

The Northern Family's purpose is to produce stories, coloring books, etc. for Northern Children as well as acting as a resource for Northern parents. That work will be posted here in this section of the site to act as a resource for those Northmen and Northwomen with children to raise. We hope to have many resources here eventually for the Northern parent.


We are always looking to work with those talented individuals who would like to contribute to and/or join us in our work for the Northern Family . If you would like to contribute and/or join us please feel free to contact us at .

Heroes of the Olden Time: The Story of Siegfried

Now up in the Northern European Studies Texts section, are the first 5 Adventures (more coming soon!) from James Baldwin's "Heroes of the Olden Time: The Story of Siegfried." This is Baldwin’s admitted ‘retelling’ of the Eddas, weaving the stories of the gods with the later hero cycles, in an easy to read narrative. Anyone familiar with the Eddas will notice how he has melded and reshaped themes and characters and given them a common river to wend, in order to present an overview of the entire mythology, sacrificing accuracy for art. Keeping this in mind, it is still a valuable book, and a good way for adults new to the faith to get a feel for the material. Reading this along with your children is highly recommended, use it as a springboard for teaching the realities of the faith, and for sharing what you believe.
