Homeschooling Update

Just want to report that the experience we’re having with homeschooling is very positive.  Steven is doing well with a combination online curriculum (Christian-based), and is involved with team sports for a positive interaction with his peers.  It’s a fairly easy and consistent method – since I work at home, he does his schoolwork while I do my work, and when he needs help or when we need a “real-life” teaching time, that’s easily worked into the schedule.  I highly encourage any who can, to homeschool – there are so many...

Our Job…

What is our job as Christians?  Such wisdom comes from the Bible: Ephesians 6 offers great insight, especially in the times we live in: 1Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; 3That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. 4And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. 5Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; 6Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; 7With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: 8Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. 9And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him. 10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against...

Great book about George Washington

Most folks today believe that George Washington did not believe in God – or at best, was a “deist”.  Nothing could be further from the truth! “George Washington’s Sacred Fire” is a book that tells the truth about Washington’s life and how his beliefs framed his destiny that was to change the world. What sets “George Washington’s Sacred Fire” apart from all previous works on this man for the ages, is the exhaustive fifteen years of Dr. Peter Lillback’s research, revealing a unique icon driven by the highest of ideals. Only do George Washington’s own writings, journals, letters, manuscripts, and those of his closest family and confidants reveal the truth of this awe-inspiring role model for all generations. Dr. Lillback paints a picture of a man, who, faced with unprecedented challenges and circumstances, ultimately drew upon his persistent qualities of character – honesty, justice, equity, perseverence, piety, forgiveness, humility, and servant leadership, to become one of the most revered figures in world history. George Washington set the cornerstone for what would become one of the most prosperous, free nations in the history of civilization. Through this book, Dr. Lillback, assisted by Jerry Newcombe, will reveal to the reader a newly inspirational image of General and President George Washington. Whether you’re homeschooling, or want to know history for yourself – this book is a...
