As homeschooling families, we choose this path because we know it matters. Yet, as much as we know that homeschooling matters, not everyone else believes it. Since we live in a country where our Christian foundation is being torn down and disregarded, it’s more crucial than ever before to make sure we don’t keep the importance of homeschooling and all that it signifies — religious liberty, parental rights, Christian foundations, and God’s design for the family — to ourselves.Read More

In all that he does, he prospers.” And when families begin their home education journey by centering it on Christ and His Word, they can have the assurance that their investment will last into eternity.Read More

He still couldn’t find it.Read More
An interview with Julianna Dotten, author of Colorado Civics
What is the importance of students learning about their state?
Colorado is unique in its state history in that we really were founded by bachelor-miners (I say that tongue-in-cheek). We don’t have the rich Puritan legacy of Massachusetts or even the exciting Civil War action of Kansas or Missouri. But the “wild west” nature of Colorado has shaped our state, creating a culture of individualism, determination, and ruggedness that yet extends into the lives of those who call Colorado home.Read More
