Considering Homeschooling Ministry by Morningstar Educational Network
August 2006

Dear Christian families:

I imagine you are wondering why you are receiving our August e-newsletter when it is only mid-July. A month or so ago we let you know that we would be on the national radio ministry of Issues in Education. That interview is airing next week on over 500 radio stations nationwide. As a result, we are anticipating thousands of requests for our free DVD package. So, we are trying to get a few of our monthly duties wrapped up early so we can concentrate on getting those packages mailed before school starts. We have included the link to the program in this newsletter. If you are considering homeschooling, we hope you will set aside some time to listen.

We have two homeschool articles this month from both a mom's perspective and a dads. We hope you are encouraged by them. We also have included some information on a college we think will interest you.

Please feel free to share this e-newsletter with your friends, family and church.

In His service,

Denise Kanter

"He who follows righteousness and mercy Finds life, righteousness and honor." Proverbs 21:21

Why should you homeschool? Dr. Brian Ray surveyed homeschool graduates and found that 94% kept the faith of their parents. "From infancy you have known the holy scriptures and they have made you wise unto salvation in Christ Jesus." 2 Timothy 3:15.

    Step Out in Faith: A Homeschool Mom’s Testimony

    Last year, not only was I homeschooling our five children two to twelve, I was the leader of a local homeschool support group, Commander for the AWANA club, I taught Sunday School once a month and attended a woman's Bible study. Sounds impossible doesn't it? At the end of our very busy year, I looked back and began to doubt whether it was productive enough from an academic standpoint. Sure my kids were involved in many Christian activities, Bible study and they were being trained from a Christian worldview, but were they learning?

    Lament of a Homeschool Dad

    If success was measured by a mother's ability to home school her children while her husband played a passive role, then my wife would receive a gold medal. Sadly, the realization of my shortcomings came only very recently, when I awoke to discover that my oldest child was now in the fourth grade. Seems like only yesterday when I was changing his diapers. Scratching my head, I concluded that God had blessed me by working wonders through my wife, even while I slept.

    Patrick Henry College: Preparing Christian men and women to lead our nation and shape our culture with timeless biblical values...

    We went on a one-month family RV trip some time ago, and one of our stops was Patrick Henry College. I had heard many wonderful things about this emerging college, but I was not prepared for what I saw. My husband and I were blessed. Beautiful brick buildings on a sprawling lush campus. It was during a holiday, so we only met a few students, but they were gracious and courteous. We did have a chance to talk with the founder, Dr. Michael Farris who took some time to share with us the vision he has for PHC. If you are going to send your children to college, why not send them to PHC. Their mission below should be the goal of every parent. Denise Kanter

    The Mission of Patrick Henry College is to prepare Christian men and women who will lead our nation and shape our culture with timeless biblical values and fidelity to the spirit of the American founding. Educating students according to a classical liberal arts curriculum, and training them with apprenticeship methodology, the College provides academically excellent baccalaureate level higher education with a biblical world view.

    P.S. Take a moment and visit PHC's Student Honor Code (developed by the student body). What better friends could you afford your college bound child?

    What’s your goal for your child’s future? If it’s to become a Christian, why would you want your child to form his most basic beliefs from a non-Christian education? What do new studies show about pre- schooling? Parents consider your options! Denise Kanter of Considering Homeschooling Ministry, says when Christian parents are presented with the facts most will choose home schooling. She is offering a free DVD to give parents the information they need to make an informed choice.

    Also, take the time to listen to this awesome testimony:

    What is truth? Can TRUTH be taught at school or is it too religious? Are public schools really religiously neutral? Most Americans no longer believe there is an absolute truth. Voddie Baucham, author of The Ever Loving Truth- Can Faith Thrive in a Post- Christian Culture?, has an amazing testimony.
