Teach writing the easy way

Sometimes, we overthink things, and as a result, we can avoid what we think is too hard. When we homeschool our children, some subjects might scare or intimidate us.

Creation is our faith foundation

We are told to live by faith. We are to believe in a God we cannot see and trust Him to continue to be who He claims to be. How do we do that? What is our faith based on? We live in such an uncertain world full of fraud and lies. How can we […]

Teaching children about cash

It is fun to watch how children work with cash differently as they grow older. I was recently at the video game store with my 14-year-old son. He was certain he had enough to pay for his game and nerf gun without help. So, he flung, yes flung, his money on the counter. To his […]
