From the archive. It’s that time of year again. Vampires, ghouls, ghosts and skeletons will be haunting our doorways. American retailers celebrate a 7 billion dollar a year candy, card and costume business ($1.5 billion in Canada).

Some of you are wondering why I’m not using a “Christian history” curriculum. I used several Christian history text with our first homeschool generation (our children ages range from 9 to 37). I later found out they had several flaws. Now we use a variety of sources and verify facts as we learn (as we do with all studies especially Bible). I plan on using the book as follows

The occult has always focused on gory images of violence, death and destruction. We see it in today’s media, music, and movies. As people become desensitized to occult violence and horror, the images in popular entertainment grow increasingly and indescribably evil. Yet, this is old news. Thousands of years ago, God warned us, ‘All those [...]
I assumed even baby Christian had enough discernment to stay away from books and movies full of lust and witchcraft, titled “Horror Romance” in the bookstore–then my boys ages 9 and 11 came home from Sunday school with stories of the Youth group kids raving about the Twilight books. (and I thought Harry Potter was bad).
Here are my selection of the best Christian fiction books I’ve read in the last few months (listed in order I read them, most recent first). Update: Since posting this I have read everyone of Robiert Whitlow’s books. I recommend them all. He is my new favorite author. Mountain Top was my favorite. I also [...]
Do your children know the Ten Commandments? Do you? According to Kelton Research and 10 Commandments Commission only 14% can accurately name all Ten Commandments. No, 80 percent of 1,000 respondents could name the burger’s primary ingredient — two all-beef patties — but less than six in 10 knew the commandment “thou shalt not kill.” [...]

We moved to Tennessee three years ago and started attending a local church. The people are sweet. kind, and loving. But after three years I still feel like I don’t really know anyone. I taught Sunday school, children’s church, VBS, camp, etc. I got to know some of the other workers but …I still felt [...]
I was in Nashville the week of the catastrophic Nashville Flood but my friends and family weren’t aware there was a problem. Why? Because most Media Ignored it. The down-pouring rain flooded the Nashville lifting the Cumberland River 13 feet above flood stage, causing an estimated $1 billion in damage, and killing more than 30 [...]
We are stuck in Nashville. We live in Shelbyville (1.5 hour from Nashville). I was visiting my daughter on Friday with plans to go home Saturday morning via Highway 24. At the last minute we decided to go to a community play at 2:00 and then go home. The flood water started. We went back [...]
We are hybrid homeschooling. I homeschool at home three days a week and send my children to a private homeschool one day and to fine arts classes one day.

The sexual victimization of children is in my opinion the most insidious thing on this planet. In as many as 93 percent of child sexual cases, the child knows the person that commits the abuse. Abusers will spend months and years planing and orchestrating insidious steps to control victims. Abusers set up this path of [...]
