teaching to the test

Making the Most of High School with CollegePlus — PART 6

One of the greatest gifts of homeschooling is the freedom to customize your child’s education.

Without formal testing, it is unreasonable to expect a teacher who is responsible for a large classroom of students to know with certainty whether those students are comprehending the material presented.

But in the intimacy of the homeschool environment, there are a variety of ways to make this assessment.

The Mommy Book Gives

The Mommy Book Gives

In a twinkling, all the cares of this world will pass away, and we will stand before the Lord.

In that moment, the only work that will matter is the work done for Him.

We strive to keep that truth foremost in our minds as we make choices as to how we will allocate our resources.

On this page, we will highlight ministries we have found to be effective in spreading the Gospel and trustworthy in caring for the least of these.

THE MAKING OF THE MOMMY BOOK

Have you ever wondered how books are printed?
We’re excited to release our first children’s hardcover book. And we’re praying that mommies everywhere will read it to their little ones at bedtime, and that little ones will fall asleep knowing how precious and chosen they are!

If you’ve ever wanted to take a little peek “behind the scenes,” here’s a little pictorial journal of the printing of I’d Rather Be Your Mommy.

Mark Your Child with Love

A FATHER’S MARK — 3 PRACTICES

How can you be intentional about building your relationship with your child?

It seems a little ironic that such an important facet of our lives — our family relationships — often receive so little strategic planning.

To be a skillful father, you must be intentional.

every father leaves his mark

A Father’s Mark

Every father leaves his mark on his child. That mark can impact generations.

My father became my dear friend before he passed into eternity, but we had a difficult history.

He didn’t become a believer until late in life.

Before choosing to follow Jesus, he made some choices that were incredibly destructive to our family. Those choices left marks of anger, rejection, and abandonment….

C.S. Lewis Original Recording

Before Mere Christianity

magine you live in a flat in London, and it’s 1941.

It’s night. As you hear the now familiar drone of propellers, you brace yourself. Within minutes, bombs drop from the skies and explosions erupt.

You feel helpless, hopeless, and an overwhelming sense of impending doom.

When at last it’s quiet, you fumble your way to the radio. Your hand shakes as you turn it on and dial in the station.

Suddenly, a calm, reassuring voice fills the room …

The days are long but the years are short.

Making the Most of High School with CollegePlus — Part 1

How can we make the most of these final days of homeschooling?

Unbelievable as it may seem, my firstborn son is now a high school senior and his brother is a junior. Where did the years go?

In the joyful chaos that was my life after my second son was born a mere 19 months after my first, a dear friend warned me, “The days are long but the years are short.” Looking back to that day now, I marvel at the truth of her statement.

Leaving and landing

Walking with the Waodani – Part 1

Imagine you have friends of all ages (and you do, don’t you?).

One friend in particular — who happens to be 70 years old — is thinking about moving to Ecuador when he retires. He wants to explore the country, and he invited you to travel with him.

You’ve always wanted to explore the world. Ecuador seems like a fine place to start, so you accept his invitation.

So now it’s time to prepare for departure …

Why study philosophy?

Most of us underestimate the relevance of philosophy. But whether we realize it or not, philosophers’ ideas have a profound impact on our daily lives.
