Learn the Ten Commandments in Five Minutes

Do your children know the Ten Commandments? Do you? According to Kelton Research and Ten Commandments Commission, only fourteen percent can accurately name all Ten Commandments. Now, eighty percent of 1,000 respondents could name the burger’s primary ingredient –“two all-beef patties” — but less than six in ten knew the commandment “thou shalt not kill.” Forty-three percent of respondents – including those who regularly attend church ...

Do You Have a Distorted View of God?

Many of us have a distorted view of God. The muddy view comes from the same lies as in the Garden of Eden where Satan implied that God had ulterior motives to keep knowledge from man. Satan’s Lie “I am not” vs God’s “I Am” Satan does not want us to understand how much God loves us.  He distorts our ... Read More »

Spiritual Journey: Reaching the Promised Land

In the Heart of Wisdom Teaching Approach I compare the homeschool journey to the Exodus from Egypt (leaving public school) traveling in the desert, and seeking the Promised Land.The Passover story and journey to the Promised Land is a meaty symbol of our spiritual journey and growth. The Israelites were saved from Egypt but not all entered the Promised Land--only their children and a few men of faith entered. Likewise, in our spiritual journey we can be saved but fall short of arriving in the promised land. Read More »

Are You Trying Too Hard?

Many Christians measure  their spiritual walk (and others)  based on a checklist of all that they have done for God. This easily leads to legalism and bondage. Jesus doesn’t want us to “do” because He has already “DONE” the work when He died on a cross for our sins. Our goal should not be  trying to earn God’s love, and ... Read More »

Everyone Has a Worldview: Do You Know Yours?

God expects His people to seek earnestly for the truth. As the Apostle Paul faced the humanists of his day, so the faithful and aware Christian must, if he is truly to follow Christ, face the humanists of our day. Our children will eventually be in company with those taught totally humanistic values in the public school system. If our ... Read More »

Two Different Views of God’s Wrath

The world has two enormously different views of God’s wrath and sin. The main view taught today is from Greek philosophy where God is detached and unapproachable and Jesus needed to suffer and die to appease God’s wrath intended for us. The Biblical view is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit  greatly loved us before the foundation of the world ... Read More »

Manifesting the Light of Jesus

When the Maccabean Jews rededicated the Temple and themselves unto God, the result was a miraculous manifestation of light. Oil that naturally would have burned for only one day supernaturally burned for eight days, signifying God’s approval upon the efforts of his people to separate themselves and their sanctuary to him. The same thing happens with us. When we dedicate ... Read More »

An Unplanned Delight-Directed Homeschool Day

I teach using a combination of several different teaching methods for years and rarely think of them being different methods. Just as when I am fixing a meal I rarely think of the different methods used (chopping, mixing, blending, frying), I focus on the end result. This morning was a combination of unit study, delight-directed, writing to learn, and thematic studies. Here is a sample of our homeschool day. Our study took on a life of its own going in several unplanned directions (lessons running a muck is norm for us). Read More »

The First Green Smoothie

For decades dietitians have been educating the public about the multiple benefits of greens, but it was not clear how to incorporate fresh greens into everyone’s daily diet. The only option for eating greens seemed to be the salad. The problem is that in our industrialized world, the taste of greens is not as appealing as the stimulating taste of processed foods.

Was the Feast of Tabernacles the First Thanksgiving?

The Feast of Tabernacles is a week-long autumn harvest festival. The two days following the festival are separate holidays, Shemini Atzeret and Simkhat Torah, but are commonly thought of as part of the Feast of Tabernacles. The Feast of Tabernacles was the final and most important holiday of the year. The importance of this festival is indicated by the statement, “This ... Read More »

Sukkot or Tabernacles in Bible Times

As The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) approached, the entire Jewish nation started making preparations.
