Aspiring to the Art of Welcoming

Jesus welcomed children. He said, “Let the little children come to me,” and rebuked those who were more concerned with keeping a busy day on schedule than with the needs and desires of children.

Thanksgiving, It's a Decision

In modern society, gratitude seems to be a function of how much stuff we can accumulate; so, the idea of thankfulness is to many, anachronistic. But our Christian witness should bear out, with visible authenticity, that our Creator deserves our faithful homage and that godliness with contentment is great gain. Sometimes true thanksgiving must begin with a decision.

Jeff’s Journal: Serving All Homeschoolers

I believe if we were to place each homeschool family into a specific category, we would have as many categories as we have homeschool families. It is this uniqueness that makes homeschool families so special....The subject question has to do with where does NCHE stand regarding the different types of homeschoolers.

Jeff's Journal: Examining Your Focus

Another summer has ended, and it is time for many homeschools to begin the official education process once again. That would mean schools that do not operate full-time all year.

Homeschooling--The Road Less Traveled

When considering whether or not to place my child in a Christian school or to homeschool, I made it a matter of prayer—much prayer....I felt sure He would not say to homeschool. I didn't want to homeschool my children, nor did I think I would be good at it. Then He began to make it “abundantly clear.”

Guard It Well

But sometimes I get a little concerned about those who don't remember our fledgling past. I worry that they might not be as careful as we were forced to be, to protect the right to teach our own children. The real danger, in a word, is that homeschooling has become mainstream (Ugh!). When a movement becomes mainstream, I contend that it is in jeopardy.

This One Thing I Do!

When our youngest son was about two years old, he put just about every toy he owned in a backpack. Then he put on the backpack. Then he fell over backwards! The weight of all his “stuff” stopped our little boy in his tracks. I remember laughing at the picture, and then realizing that it was a graphic illustration of what happens to so many homeschooling families.

Don't Lose the Memories

...This is one of the many memories I have of seeing my children grow, learn, try new things and stretch themselves. I have to admit that they are some of the best memories I have in my life...

The Lo-o-ng Winter

The winter I am remembering today is the one before the glorious spring of my child's clicking into recreational reading. If your child is eight, nine or ten and is not an eager, confident reader, then you are in the throes of this long winter.
