Are Your Plants Stuck in Their Pots?

Have you ever eagerly purchased some flowers at a local nursery on a Friday afternoon, brought them home, taken a short break to tend to other matters, and then neglected to plant the flowers the same day? No big deal, right? You’ve got all day Saturday to transplant those beautiful blossoms. Saturday rolls around, and you get involved in a few other projects while neglecting to move that flora out of their pots and into the ground. Once again, there’s no need to lose any sleep. You’ll make sure to complete this task after church, lunch, and...

Habakkuk 1:5 Devotional: God at Work

Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told. (Habakkuk 1:5)   Have you ever prayed months or even years for a personal breakthrough or solution to a problem? After days of feeling like your prayers are bouncing off the ceiling, it’s easy to wonder if this is simply your lot in life. Is God not listening, or are you just not praying hard enough, long enough, or faithfully enough?   The prophet Habakkuk asked these same kinds of questions. He asked the Lord how...

The Future of School Choice: Are You Riding the Wave or Lost at Sea?

The Future of School Choice: Are You Riding the Wave or Lost at Sea?

SCHOOL CHOICE AND HOMESCHOOLING Americans place a high value on education. As parents, we want our kids to succeed, and we tend to believe that the quality of instruction they receive will make a big difference in their lives and careers. And yet we often hear that American children are lagging behind their peers in other countries in terms of knowledge, skills, and test scores. Thus there have been many attempts by politicians to improve our struggling public school system, but these efforts have largely failed despite spending billions of...

Single Parent Homeschooling

Single Parent Homeschooling

Let’s face it:  single parent homescholing intensifies the challenges of homeschooling. Single parent homeschooling is increasing and those single parents who choose to educate their children at home testifies that it can work. In most two-parent homeschooling families, the dad takes primary responsibility for earning the living while the mom takes primary responsibility for educating the children. The labor is divided, and the support is multiplied. Although there are also many two-parent families where both parents contribute to the...

Does Life Make Sense, or Is Everything Really Meaningless?

Does Life Make Sense, or Is Everything Really Meaningless?

Writing about the book of Proverbs, Eugene Peterson says that wisdom is “the art of living skillfully.” In 1 Corinthians 14:33, Paul tells us that our God is not a God of disorder but of peace. Therefore, life should be as simple as figuring out steps one, two, and three and doing them, right? Shouldn’t the outcome of righteous actions be entirely predictable? Like it or not, life often feels a bit chaotic and subject to random chance. Too many times even Christians find themselves asking questions like “What in the world is going on? Is...

Do Your Children Really Know Who They Are?

Do Your Children Really Know Who They Are?

Twentieth-century illustrator Norman Rockwell was famous for his iconic depictions of everyday life in America. His distinctive style and subject matter captured the optimism and can-do spirit of his time, most notably in the 322 original covers he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine. For the March 6, 1954 issue, Rockwell painted “Girl at Mirror,” one of his most enduring images. In this picture, a young girl sits on a stool and studies herself in a large mirror propped up against a chair. In her lap is a magazine open to a...

What Does God Require? Do, Love, Walk

What Does God Require? Do, Love, Walk

What Does God Require? What does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8) Walk Humbly Before you attempt to mete out justice, you must walk humbly before the Almighty, the Exalted One, the Lord of lords and King of kings. If we stop to think about who God is, we should be terrified, reverent, and yes, humbled. He is God with a capital G. In light of the fact that we are merely God’s creation, you and I should never dare think too highly of ourselves. God wants us to hear,...

My Homeschool Student is Not Motivated! Help!

My Homeschool Student is Not Motivated! Help!

“Mom, can I go to real school?” I remember my 8-year-old asking me this question like it was yesterday. I feared that our homeschool journey might end that same day. But God was faithful, and my son graduated happily from our homeschool ten years later. During our twenty-one years of our homeschool adventure, I could often trace my children’s expressions of dissatisfaction or boredom to my own attitudes. At times I needed a new vision, a change in focus, or a little more creativity. Other times I simply needed to alter a child’s course by...
