Homeschooling Encouragement, Christian Homeschoolers

Cramped Hospitality

Holidays and houseguests! They go together like love and marriage, don’t they? But what if you don’t have much room for extras?

No One Else Named Mom

Her feelings of joy and self-worth were derived from ministering to others, not from raising her children. Her children knew it and responded in kind. Home was chaotic and miserable.

Dads: Orchestrating the Homeschool

On that old television program, weeks of practice and years of training culminated in beauty. In the same way, Dad sets the rhythm and tone of the home.

The Laundry Daze

Who but another postpartum mom could believe that I had a meltdown over doing laundry? I literally fell into a weeping puddle of self-pity, certain that I’d never get caught up...

Clothes Line Devotions

Environmentalists might call it a responsible use of wind and solar energy. My neighbors probably call it one more way that the Biever family is just plain weird and probably a little nuts. I know better.

Where Are Your Kids on the Lazy Meter?

I’ve heard parents state that they want life to be easy and fun for their kids because “they learn soon enough that the world is full of hardship and woe...” I reject this nonsense wholeheartedly.

Parenting with a Diligent Hand, Part 2

Today, I’d like to look at the question, “How and why do Christian parents let their children get off the right path? And how can diligent parents help keep their children on the right path?”

Parenting with a Diligent Hand, Part I

My thinking for most of the years my children were being raised was this: If a father and mother will generally do what is biblically right in relation to a child, then that child will turn out right without ever going far astray. But my understanding was off-target...

We're Having Lizard ‘n Onions for Dinner!

It is amazing what happens in a child’s brain. Something that is taken for granted by an adult can utterly confuse and befuddle a child. I suppose we adults must look the same way to God sometimes, when our limited understanding makes Him laugh...

Safe in His Arms: The Hope of a Homeschooling Single Mom

I am often asked, “Is it possible for a single parent to homeschool?” What a loaded question! If they only knew what questions begin scrolling through my mind! How can a single mom raise up sons to become Godly men, etc...

Hypocrite Proofing the Home

Recently, a friend called. Her son had begun asking difficult math questions. She called me because she knew I could relate—like her, I also have an age discrepancy between my wedding date and my child’s birth.

Your 12-Year-Old Still Can’t Read?!

Our daughter Emily started out as an incredibly bright child, well on her way to law school in kindergarten. Imagine our surprise when she was unable to learn to read in public school kindergarten or after transferring into private Christian school for first grade.

Raining Sunshine

Even after twenty years of living on the plains of Colorado I’m caught off guard when the sun shines above me at the same time rain droplets plop onto my skin. It happened again the other night.

Homeschooling in the Shadows

From time to time, it seems that dark clouds overshadow the homeschooling family. It is wise to remember, however, that laws opposing the Christian faith or homeschooling are not capable of destroying our hope.

Grace and the Homeschool

Reviving Our Vision

We need to keep a vision for our families’ futures clearly set before us. We must define our vision, prayerfully teach toward our vision, and seek encouragement in the process.

Stopping at Second: Baseball Lesson II

If only the little guy hadn’t taken his eyes off his coach, our team would have been set up to score. Shocked by how well he’d done, the young hitter was unable to even consider how much further he could go.

Running It Out: A Baseball Lesson

A tug inside halted my baseball thoughts. Convicted, I realized that too many times I stutter-step in life, looking at all the things that could hold me back instead of keeping my eye on the goal.

Homeschooling the Rebel

What to Do When You Run Into “The Wall”

You can’t get over it, you can’t go around it; your nose is pressed against this immovable blockage; “forward” isn’t there and “reverse” doesn’t work. What’s a mother to do?
