|Dear Christian parents:
We are so grateful that the Lord has continually provided the resources for us to send out a free DVD and brochure to families considering homeschooling. Why?
My name is Mary. I have a 10-year old and a 2 year old. I plan to homeschool starting this summer. My husband and I are researching and studying God's word. Thank God for your ministry. I received your DVD and shared it with my friend, now she is considering homeschooling her children.
Your sister in Christ
If you have received a free DVD and brochure, like Mary, would you consider passing it along so another family could learn about the blessings of a biblical home education.
We hope our articles this month and the Easy to Homeschool Resource List will encourage you to homeschool your children for the Lord. I would also like to encourage you to subscribe to a homeschool magazine. We have listed a few for you under the Quick Links section.
If our ministry can help you with homeschooling information, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please consider forwarding this newsletter to your friends and family.
Considering Homeschooling Ministry
I Don't Want my Kids to be Normal!
"You're going to homeschool your children?! Aren't you afraid they won't grow up to be normal?" This question has been posed to most prospective homeschoolers by well-meaning family and friends. When I was confronted with this question as a young mother of preschoolers, I was very much afraid that, by keeping them home all day, I would create abnormal children who did not fit into society.

|'Mom,' 'dad,' banned; now 600,000 students could go...
Only months after a new state law effectively banned "mom" and "dad" from California schools, 600,000 students soon could be following them out the door because of what has been described as the "repudiation" of 2,000 years of Christian morality, according to leaders of a new campaign assembling education alternatives.
Chaplain E. Ray Moore Jr., chief of the Exodus Mandate, said the program's goal is the put into place programs and resources that will "successfully extract 600,000 students from public schools this year."

He said that's about 10 percent of the California public school student population, and that would align with the percentage of the population that claims an affiliation with evangelical Christianity.
"Obviously we would hope all the children would go," he said.
"This is such an egregious offense against a Holy God, if the believers will stand up and act boldly, perhaps in God's mercy, we're seeking and asking for a Jericho type moment, that there will be some sudden shifting away from reforming public schools toward a Christian education," he said.
The Symptoms of Parent-Withdrawal
Author Mary Eberstadt recently wrote a book titled Home-Alone America: The Hidden Toll of Day Care, Behavioral Drugs and Other Parent Substitutes. In this book Ms. Eberstadt explores the "immediate emotional experience" that day care, divorce and an overabundance of Ritalin cause for children. She says: "It would be better for both children and adults if more American parents were with their kids more of the time."
