The Key to Motivation or Be Still...Be Encouraged!
Becky's Teaching Tips By Newsletter Editor on 4/25/2008
"About this time of year we start to panic at the work we have not finished. We do want to be academically accountable but we also want to be reminded that all of what we do is training for our children. That’s why we want to be alert as to how our children see us responding in different situations..."

Be Strengthened
Becky's Teaching Tips By Newsletter Editor on 3/17/2008
"Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness." Colossians 1:11 Do you feel sometimes that you must "do" certain things to gain strength?

Family Life
Becky's Teaching Tips By Newsletter Editor on 3/14/2008
Recently I’ve been pondering the Proverbs and the help that they give us in training children. I challenge you to teach them diligently to your children. We want our children to be vividly aware of the difference between the wise and the foolish. If, then, they choose to make decisions contrary to the Word of God, they will be fully aware that they are acting the fool with all of his consequences....

The Decision
Gary's Articles By Newsletter Editor on 2/25/2008
"When we started home schooling, we came to a place of faith. We knew that we really didn't understand everything we needed to do. We realized that we needed to throw away worries, selfish desires and plans and move into the camp of the Lord..."

Developing Goals for Your Children
Gary's Articles By Newsletter Editor on 2/21/2008
When traditionally structured academics begin to choke out the freedom of pursuing the unique needs and interests of their children, parents need to reassess the daily workload in the light of the eternal and create goals that cooperate with God's own plans for His Kingdom.

My Cute Little Baby Sister

Study

"Study to show yourself pleasing unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the truth." 2 Tim. 2:15. Hold fast to the fact that the study of the Word can help your praise and worship.

Celebrate!
Becky's Teaching Tips By Newsletter Editor on 12/17/2007
In “Renewed Day By Day A Daily Devotional” by A.W. Tozer for Nov. 28th he states, “God in love and wisdom has given us in His Holy Spirit every gift and power and help that we need to serve Him. We do not have to look around for some other way!”

On the Salvation of Children
Gary's Articles By Newsletter Editor on 12/17/2007
When my wife and I first heard the news that we were to have a child, the very first thought I had was the sober reality of raising a child who was headed for hell without the intervening Grace of God. My whole focus narrowed to this daunting task of training "up a child in the way he should go so that when he is old, he won't depart". (Proverbs 22:6)

Love for Eternity
Student Developer By Newsletter Editor on 12/17/2007

Are All These Your Children?
Gary's Articles By Newsletter Editor on 11/19/2007
My wife and I are frequently asked this question when we are out with our whole crew. My wife and I came to our convictions about family planning as young believers who earnestly desired a scriptural basis for discerning what Christ demanded of us as disciples. We felt that there must be absolutes that are clearly revealed in scripture in order for us to assess what is our domain and what is God’s for making our “family” decisions.

Remember the Basics!
Becky's Teaching Tips By Newsletter Editor on 11/19/2007
Let me share with you part of the morning message from November 7, from Charles Spurgeon’s, “Morning and Evening”. The verse he quotes is: “Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.” Is. 49:16, he then shares, “How dare you doubt My constant remembrance, when the memorial is set on My very own flesh?”

Egypt from God's Point of View
Student Developer By Newsletter Editor on 10/14/2007
It would seem that God didn’t really love the Egyptians because, as we read in the story of Moses, of all the terrible plagues he allowed to come upon them and how Pharaoh ended up drowning in the Red Sea when God let the waters come back on them. But God loves everyone. That is why, later on in history, he sent his only Son...

Surrender!
Becky's Teaching Tips By Newsletter Editor on 9/24/2007
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Heb. 12:2 Indeed, to such an author our surrender is never in vain. He is all knowing, all-powerful and fully and completely worthy.
