Why Young-Earth Creation Matters

I have naively believed for far too long that if a person regularly attends church, sings songs about how God created the world, mentions creation in prayers or liturgy, or homeschools her children, that she must therefore be a creationist.

Those in the old-earth camp say they believe God created the world but that He used long periods of time to allow evolution to take its course.

NEW BOOK: Biblical Home Education

With countless choices of homeschooling curriculum on the market, it can be extremely difficult to evaluate which ones are biblical — and which ones aren’t!

I’ve been doing a lot of writing this past year on a biblical homeschooling philosophy. I’m excited to release this now as an eBook, perfect for new homeschoolers and veterans alike!

Bible Curriculum That Is Anti-Bible?

Several weeks ago, I first heard about a Bible curriculum by Peter Enns, published by Peace Hill Press, the publishing arm of The Well-Trained Mind. Since so many homeschoolers are “classical” in style, this really made my ears perk up.

Tidbits of Truth for Homeschooling

Just to encourage you today, here are some great quotes from God’s Word, to help you in your parenting and homeschooling.

God’s Word has all we need.

His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” (2 Peter 1:3, NIV).

Homeschooling, Adam Clarke Style – Part 2

Note: Last week, I started a two-part discussion from a commentary note by Adam Clarke, originally published in the early 1800s. He wrote the following about Deuteronomy 6:25, with what I feel is about the most excellent summary of homeschooling philosophy I’ve ever read.

Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible, originally published in the early 1800s, has an interesting note on Deuteronomy 6:25. It is about the most excellent summary of homeschooling philosophy I’ve ever read. I can’t stop thinking about it.

Just Follow Your Heart

Today, we’re continuing on with our discussion from chapter 3 of Juggling Life’s Responsibilities.

“According to Jeremiah 17:9, we should not trust our own judgment. Why not?”

Let me give you a little background to this discussion. In my Juggling book, I wrote,

“Women especially need wisdom.

The Fear of the LORD

As we continue our Bible study from my Juggling Life’s Responsibilities, we see this question:

“According to Psalm 111:10, where does wisdom begin?”

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow his precepts have good understanding”
(Psalm 111:10).

Biblical Homeschooling Goals

Today I want to quickly list a few “homeschooling” goals that are straight from Scripture. I’m hoping to gain some principles I can use to choose a homeschooling philosophy, method and curriculum out of the trillions of options that are available to me.

Brainstorming a Homeschool Philosophy

This is a typical "brain-storming" session at our house.

Ladies, it’s late at night when I’m writing this, and I have simply got to get to bed. My eyes are heavy… I’m falling asleep… Seriously, I’m breaking my be-in-bed-by-ten-o’clock rule. 🙂 I didn’t have time to finish this blog post as I wanted to, but I’ll give you what I’ve got so far.
