Homeschool Answers Book Bundle

The decision to homeschool is difficult. There is so much to learn, and there are often radical changes that take place in your family. Unfortunately, not everyone will be supportive.

Well-meaning friends and relatives may believe you are going to “ruin your child.” How can you make sure that you have laid a good foundation for your child’s future? How can you respectfully defend your choice to those who disagree with you?

Many studies indicate that Christian youth are leaving the Church, and anti-Christian education has been linked as a major factor in this equation. The Bible is full of instructions on how God desires His children to be educated. IF GOD has a definite opinion about the issue of education, wouldn’t you desire to find out what it is and how best to implement HIS WISDOM?

You’ve asked for a more specific list with recommendations that are age-based and appropriate. We really enjoy the missionary biographies from YWAM publishers. That’s not necessarily classical literature, but our kids enjoy it, too. We had one son finish all 48 books in the series!

When we think of literature, we tend to think of those great books. Some books are also great for read-alouds.

You do need to be mindful that not everything that’s considered “classic” is something you should hand to your children unfiltered. There’s a lot of teaching that needs to happen. The Scriptures are our plumbline for what’s good.

Living on a Single Income with Israel  & Brooke Wayne of Family Renewal 

Living on a single income podcast with Israel Wayne

(If you’re listening online, scroll down to the play bar.)

Hello and welcome to Family Renewal. I’m Israel Wayne your host. We hope you’ll stay with us for the next thirty minutes as we take a look at faith, family, and culture all the lenses of a Biblical Worldview. This program is a production of the Ultimate Homeschool Radio Network.

Introduction to the podcast:

Israel: Today we’re going to talk about a topic that we haven’t discussed previously, and that is, living on a single income. We’ve written about it, but never done a podcast on this. We’re going to talk about this from two different angles, the macro view and the micro view. What the societal view that you’re suppose to have both parents in the workforce and have your children occupied elsewhere. Then kind of the micro view how do you walk out the decision to live on a single income.

I didn’t know until looking at it while writing a chapter of a new book to be released next year, that 7% of households in the US have the dynamic where there is a married couple with children and only the man works and the woman stays home with the children.

Brooke: That is so much lower than I would’ve expected!

Israel: That’s somewhat representative of us, though now I own my own business. We now work in our business together. For years I worked outside the home and Brooke worked outside the home. We are dealing with the dynamic of a single income and homeschooling. While writing last night I was addressing the question people have, which is, will I throw away my college education to stay home to homeschool my children. Society would say you’re wasting your life if you stay home. How does that impact your life, Brooke?

Brooke: I did hear this in a varied form not long ago in a check out at the store.

Book Title:

Education, Does God Have An Opinion?

Description:

Since the beginning of the 20th century, the vast majority of Christians have embraced the idea that it is a proper role and function of the civil government to control and guide the education of children. Most Christians believe God doesn’t care, one way or the other, how our children are schooled or what methods are employed. This book will use Scripture to prove otherwise.
What you read in this book will radically challenge your assumptions and preconceived ideas.

– Discover the true purpose of an education and how this affects and influences students
– Explore a truly Biblical philosophy of education and how it compares to traditional schooling
– Learn to apply a Biblical worldview strategically and systematically to core subjects of education

There is almost no topic that is as relevant to the future of Christianity or as controversial as the education of children. Students in school classrooms spend thousands of hours being instructed by people who are not their parents. There is almost no way to calculate what a powerful force this is for influence.

From rules to help students reason to information that will help you be a more effective teacher, this book shows the vital importance of “why” in asking students to learn the “what” and “how” of any subject. The future of your child’s education and, therefore, his or her life is ultimately in your hands as a parent. Open your mind and your heart to God’s Word and His truth. Much is at stake. Ask Him to give you discernment to help you understand how He sees the issue of education.
