"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness". 2 Timothy 3:16

Dear Homeschooling Family:
 
This issue of our monthly newsletter is specific to those of you who are already homeschooling.  We are developing new resources for Christian families considering homeschooling and we need your help.

 

One of the best ways to encourage and uplift families considering homeschooling is to provide resources that provide encouragement, advice, curriculum ideas, one-income strategies, and general resources to educate them on the benefits of homeschooling.

 

We have three new projects on the table, two books and a booklet to accompany our DVD's.  The first book will be geared towards homeschooling preschoolers.  The second book is for general homeschool encouragement, advice and testimonies.  The booklet will include short stories, quotes and brief personal testimonies.    Our goal is to provide resources that glorify God in the homeschool setting.

 

Single parents and grandparents are a growing number of families considering homeschooling, so if you are (or know of someone) in this situation please consider being a part of the special projects.

 

This would be a wonderful way for those of you to help the thousands of families who come to us looking for help each year.  Below is the general information regarding these projects.

 

Thank you so much for your consideration.  Please e-mail me with any questions you may have.

 

In His service,

Why Is Reaching Out So Important?
 
This week an on-line posting by a public school teacher was brought to our attention.  She has insight to the conditions of the public school system that we on the outside may never have.  Her are her thoughts:
 

"I've been a public-school educator for over 30 years now. As a Christian, I love my job and am thankful to God for it because I have daily opportunities to impact the next generation for Christ, in both large and small ways. But I am an adult! Public schools are NOT a place where young, formative hearts can withstand the extreme and pervasive peer and adult pressure. The public-school system at large is based on principles which unashamedly disdain biblical Christianity. There IS an agenda in the public schools! The debauched youth culture of western materialism and secularism is given free reign while biblical attitudes and values are mocked and even punished. I cannot state to all parents too strongly: if it is at all possible for you, DO NOT place your children in public schools!! Their spiritual formation is YOUR direct responsibility above all other considerations."
