Teach Them Diligently 2015 – Friday

It is 5:15 in the afternoon and I am taking a break to rest from an outstanding day of speakers here at the Teach Them Diligently Convention! I have been blessed to hear from Kim Sorgius, Hal & Melanie Young and Rhea Perry today. The time in the vendor hall with what seems like hundreds…

The Incredible Egg

Now adults, normally I do post for you. But today I have something for the kids. However, take a minute and watch over this before you let your kids see it. This will allow you to have some time to properly formulate answers before your kids come to you. The Incredible Egg

Teach Them Diligently DC Trek…Day 2.0

There have been few things in life that really impress me. But I must admit that the Teach Them Diligently Convention this year in Washington, DC has done just that! From the beautiful surroundings of the Gaylord Hotel and Resort, the perfect weather, the outstanding speakers and the awesome children’s program, I will say that I am in awe.

The Next Generation ~ Part 2 of 2

The Next Generation

One generation will declare Your works to the next
and will proclaim Your mighty acts.
Psalms 145:4 HCSB

This past Sunday I had the privilege of being able to step into the pulpit of my home church during the 11:00 service and deliver a message that God has laid upon my heart for a long time now. I was talking about “The Next Generation”. Those who will follow after us, are watching us and are trusting us to do what is right.

I had to break the sermon into two parts due to the length of the podcast. Part one is available and should be listened to first.

Dad’s Leadership in the Home ~ Podcast

Christ was rejected and despised by men. Husbands and dads, are you willing to be rejected by your kids? Are you willing to place everything that you are before the world and be rejected? Kids at times can be mean. It’s a fact of life. But it is also a fact of what they emulate what they see as well.
Are you willing to carry the pain of your loved ones? Cancers, mental disorders, physical limitations are things that can, though not always, cause pain. Are you willing to step up and endure the sufferings just as Christ did for your family?

Video Gaming Husbands ~ Podcast

Husbands, now here is something that is near and dear to my heart. Last year at the 2012 Teach Them Diligently conference in Spartanburg, South Carolina I had the pleasure of listening to a gentlemen by the name of Mark Hamby. Mark is the founder of the Lamplighter Ministries, which in itself is another great topic that I will discuss one day. He was speaking on the topic of “A Great Awakening: The Mind, Media, and Moral Imagination”. My youngest son, 8 during this time, was the exact kid that he was speaking of when it came to video games. He had become addicted to the “rush and thrill” of the game. It was acting as a literal drug that caused a change in his brain chemistry.

Why Do I Homeschool? ~ Podcast

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? Why do I homeschool?

My reasons are as follows:

  1. It is my responsibility to teach my kids, not someone else.
  2. I want my kids to have the best education that is available.
  3. My kids don’t need to be influenced by other kids and their decisions. They are to be influenced by me and my wife.
  4. We have Bible time in our school. Do you?
