The Within and the Without

This article intends to incite thought and make a push for intellectual progression. This article reflects my thoughts on the growing disarray in our nation and our world and the lack of intuitive thought during times of turmoil. However I believe that wherever there is a distinct will to inflict change; it will manifest itself in society.

The Real Root of Reading

If there is one thing that will get a rise out of veteran homeschooling parents, it is the debate over the best way to teach reading and comprehension. Though many have grabbed hold of the phonics method, and for good reason, I still go to book and curriculum fairs where the old "see and say" sight-reading method is touted. Even though I understand both sides of that argument, I believe that many homeschooling parents are missing out on one important fact and it is called "meaning."

Myth and Ministry of the Homeschool Father

There is a certain myth that suggests homeschooling fathers do not have a prominent role in the education of their children. This myth sees the average homeschooling father as someone who just treks early to his workplace and arrives home to his wife and children at the conclusion of their school day.

Artistic View of the Stepping Stones to Home Education

"The 'Stepping Stones' paintings are oil on canvas paintings and all based on scriptures and I produced them to show a way of applying scripture to a vibrant children's life (and adults) using my own three children (Peter and Hannah who are twins and John) as the subjects along with a pile of family teddy bears. The first four images, I have around 90 worked out, cover various aspects of living a daily vibrant life of faith in Jesus in obedience to scripture. They are prints to put on your wall to inspire children of any age (Apparently over 60's is the 2nd childhood).
