Many moms are struggling with fear of the future, worrying about raising children in today's culture, but God says loud and clear, "Do not be afraid! Be strong and courageous!"

We've gone from a few brave moms who, without access to mainstream curriculum:, managed to give their children an excellent education, but we've forgotten what made it excellent.

Homeschool Discrimination and What We’re Doing About It
Homeschool graduates still encounter discrimination when applying for employment, civil service, admission to colleges and trade schools, and participation in extracurricular competitions and programs. While homeschooling is now widely recognized as a legal form of education, there is still much work to be done to ensure that students and graduates are not discriminated against because their parents choose to exercise their right to homeschool.

Then, the older women are commanded to teach the younger women. So, what is it that women are supposed to teach and learn from one another? To love their husbands, love their children, and take care of their homes. Is that even relevant today? Come and discover the timeless truths from God’s Word about our biblical role as women.

40 Ways to Be Present in Your Child's Day
In the midst of a busy day it's easy for mamas to think of our children as “tasks” rather than as “hearts” we need to connect with. We struggle with putting our kids before our to-do lists and school schedules. After all, we can mark things off our to-do lists. Kids are never "done." It hurts my heart to realize what my kids see and experience on some days: a busy, distracted mom. Tricia Goyer shares how to be present in your child's day.

American’s Greatest Sin—It’s Not What You Think
What is our nation’s greatest sin? Is it the horror of abortion, adultery, homosexuality, pornography, fornication, or blasphemy? You may be surprised that it’s none of these things. There is one sin that most Christians could hardly identify—let alone define, and it is the catalyst for all these sins...and it’s not unbelief.

Responding Biblically to Anger
Anger is a God given emotion that we all experience from time to time. The problem is that our human natures have the tendency to be angry in a sinful way. Anger may characterize how we respond to certain triggers, but anger itself doesn’t control us, the evil desires within us do. We were created in the image of God with the capacity to be angry in a righteous way. You will discover how to respond biblically to anger and also learn how to disciple others with the same truths.

Most of us disguise worry with different terms like, “concerned,” “troubled,” or “bothered.” Worry saps our energy, drains our joy, destroys evangelism, and even aggravates many physical ailments.The Bible is clear that worry is sinful, idolatrous, and a sign of unbelief, and that fear is wrong when it is allowed to motivate thinking and behavior that is unbiblical. You will discover the biblical solutions to worry, the keys to overcoming fear, and how to disciple others with the same truths.
