• Discipleship

    Raising our children and educating them could be described as, "a long obedience in the same direction." The longer we homeschool, the more we believe that to be obedient, to stay on the "narrow pathway" that Jesus described, we need the Lord desperately, and we also need each other.

  • Encouragement

    Encourage means, "to inspire with hope, courage, or confidence; hearten."


    "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up." I Thessalonians 5:11

My son-in-law was a soldier in the US Army for over nine years. Watching him train for deployment taught me a lot about how important it is to understand your mission and be prepared. Our military forces would never send out men who have not been highly trained for their assignments. The ultimate success of the soldier’s mission depends upon principles that are very similar to those needed to begin home education. We, too, have been given a mission, and the means to prepare for its success are readily available to us.

What is most important about training for a mission? It's all HERE!
