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 »

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 »

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?

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 »

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 »

I am talking about getting behind.  I’m talking about that time ... Read More »

Homeschool? What about Socialization?!

The number one question people ask homeschoolers is “Aren’t you worried about socialization?  I had the cartoon above made a few years ago that illustrates my feelings. Yes, homeschool children should have friends. But not just random friends. Homeschoolers have the opportunity for selective socialization. Parents can guide their children to other Christian families with like-minded morals and values. Most homeschool ... Read More »
