  • 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.

  • Fruit of the Spirit

    ~Galatians 5:22~

     

    Let’s learn, grow, and be encouraged while building our faith so that we may be fruitful in the journey set before us.

  • Encouragement

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

     

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