-Ken Ham

Christian families are struggling in a culture hostile to Christian values, and increasingly find themselves searching for answers and strategies to be more effective. Parents also face a disturbing trend of young people leaving home and leaving the church – and want to insure their children have a strong foundation of biblical faith and understanding.

The Talk: 7 Lessons to Introduce Your Child to Biblical Sexuality

A few months back, I took my daughter overnight for a special girl’s night. We went through the Passport2Purity program and while we had a great weekend, I wasn’t thrilled with the P2P program.

I came across this curriculum from Intoxicated on Life recently and I am much more impressed. I wish I had this before our weekend. Lesson learned, and I am glad to pass on this information to you! (it is also much more budget friendly)

This program has much more of a biblical focus without all of the extra fluff from Passport to Purity. It is deinfitely worth checking out.

Head over to Intoxicated on Life for more details!


Character Training- Teach to Work Diligently

How are you teaching about work training in your home? Do you use chore charts or other ways to teach chores?
Right now my husband is reading this book with my two older boys:


Created for Work: Practical Insights for Young Men

My children all have chores, but my goal is to teach them about working diligently for the Lord.

Here are some more resources I have found from around the web: (add yours in the comments-I’d love to hear what you are doing!)

Why a Bible Based Homeschool?


Here are my top reasons for choosing to use a Bible-based homeschooling method:

A family that prays together stays together. Learning the Bible together as a family has been a blessing beyond compare. Digging into the Word together each day has bonded us in unexpected ways and led us into conversations that were so deep and meaningful. It has strengthened our family bond. It also helps us to deal in a biblical and prayerful way when things are NOT going so smoothly. We can apply what we have learned to our daily life.


It is OUR job to disciple our children. With so many children’s programs abound at churches and outside activities these days, it is easy to give over the responsibility to another person to teach your child God’s Word. And while I certainly think it is OK for my child to learn from others, I am still my child’s first teacher as commanded by God. (Deuteronomy 6:6-9.) As a parent, I must take the responsibility of discipling my children seriously. A Bible-based homeschool enables me to do so.

God is the author of this world, and what better way to learn about it than to start with His Word? History and science are a part of His creation. What better way to learn about them to start right there in His Word.


His Word is the only curriculum I know out there that offers a 100% guarantee that it WILL produce fruit. His Word never returns void, and always accomplishes His purposes. I don’t know any other book out there that can make such a promise. As it says in Isaiah 55:10-11

As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

What a beautiful thought? As the rain can only make the earth bud and flourish, so does His Word provide for us.
