But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18)
There is no secret formula to homeschooling success. It would be nice if there were. One reason for this lack of specificity is that God will have no other gods before Him, even His own principles. This is why we are to seek God above all else. Yes, we read books. Yes, we listen to podcasts. Yes, we go to conventions.
These things, however, are not an end in themselves. Instead, they are designed to point us to Jesus.

On Friday, November 27th, a dearly loved husband, father, church elder, and police officer, Garrett Swasey, was killed in the line of duty in Colorado Springs, CO.
Garrett was a homeschool dad and some of you probably saw him and his wife Rachel walking the halls of CHEC’s Rocky Mountain Homeschool Conference the last several years.
