I Am Not Ashamed to Be a Dad! – Part 5

Why Me Men's Conference - 2013 - Not Ashamed

Jesus taught us how to teach.  He taught us that deep spiritual living comes through modeling and through hands-on training. This is where I think youth groups and Christian schools can kill us.

Why Do I Homeschool?

Why Homeschool?

I am at times asked why we have decided to home school our kids. Before we started, I needed to ask myself the question, “Why should we homeschool?” To be honest about it, there is a huge monetary commitment, a huge time commitment, it is not easy and to the world we appear to be backwards! So why?

Kids Roll In Life?

I have never thought about the things that kids teach us as adults. There are so many things that kids will ponder upon or ask as they grow. There are some things that we can give very truthful answers to and then some where we just make them up as we go. Yet in all…
