One of the key Scriptures delineating God’s mind is found at Deuteronomy 6:6–9: And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and… Read more »Posted by Donald Schanzenbach
Among those lies hatched by the devil’s Research and Development lab that have found the most favor among modern American evangelicals is this- the path to personal prosperity is acquiring specialized educational credentials in a field in great demand. This, we believe, is what we must give our sons, or if we are slightly more… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.
Written 2008 There is, in evangelical homeschooling circles, a growing divide. On the one side there are those of us who might be called movement homeschoolers.

Computers and books can cost a great deal of money, so what could possibly be the problem? I see at… Read more »Posted by Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.

It’s been 108 weeks since we last talked about the subject of homeschooling our children. Since then, some of RC and Laurence’s children have become teenagers and one has even “graduated”.
