Homeschoolers Biggest Mistake

Too many homeschoolers make the mistake I made in my first years homeschooling–setting aside Bible time for academics–putting trust in the wrong foundation! We can so easily get anxious about the academics that we miss wisdom. Education must contain more than facts, theories, and objectives. God’s written Word provides the principles and wisdom we need to live lives that are ... Read More »

If the spring festivals so clearly prophesied the first coming of Messiah, it stands to reason that the fall festivals are also prophetic of His second coming. The way these holidays are celebrated reveals specific information of the way they will ... Read More »

Messiah in Rosh Hashanah

The blowing of trumpets is a sign of the return of Christ and memorial of God’s grace to Abraham when He substituted a ram to be sacrificed instead of Isaac (Gen. 22). Isaac is a type of foreshadowing of Christ. Just as Abraham offered his son on the altar, God offered His son on Calvary’s altar. Hebrews 11:17-19 says “By ... Read More »

Dualism: Roots of Beauty Bashing

Where did the idea come from that Christian should only wear plain clothing?

The American ethic is a result of the combined ideals of the Jews, Greeks, and Romans. Approximately 200 B.C., the Greeks began to move ... Read More »

Assumptions That Affect Our Lives

An old story illustrates how easy it is to be conditioned into a wrong thinking pattern. A husband asked his wife why she always cut off the end of the rump roast before roasting it. She replied, “I’m not sure why. I’ve never thought about it. My mother always cut off the end of the rump roast, so there must be a reason.” A few weeks later Mother visited the family. 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 »

Everyone Has a Worldview: Do You Know Yours?

The same thing happens with us. When we dedicate ... Read More »
