The Bible's Hints for Homeschooling

The Bible contains many important instructions for parents who want to impart knowledge to their children. That’s homeschooling, right? In fact, the Bible tells us where all knowledge begins…

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and discipline
.” (Proverbs 1:7, NIV).

Book Review – "Don't Make Me Count to Three!"
