What should we do as we dwell in a spiritual Babylon?
God’s plan in the past likely is the same for today: stay where God placed you, build homes, plant gardens and eat their produce, grow your family, and pray for the welfare of our community (see Jeremiah 29:4–7). This is a way of life that is rich in benefits as one shares what he is learning with his children and children’s children. The time spent in learning from this life is a mix of science, theology, social studies, entomology, plant pathology, botany, horticulture, chemistry, math, and economics.

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.

Here are a few thoughts that I have found helpful to capturing or re-capturing the hearts of our children.
