Inspiring the Writer in Your Child (Cheryl)

Managing Change

Change is one of the most frequent causes of conflict, whether in the home, office, church or on a homeschool board. This workshop will provide a strategy for managing change in a way that builds unity and inspires entire groups to see every transition in life as an opportunity to grow in character and become more useful to God.

Homeschooling and Parental Rights—Freedom under Fire

Parental rights and religious freedom have been the two foundations to establish a constitutional right for parents to teach their children at home. The U.S. Supreme Court some years back weakened the free exercise of religion claim as a foundation for homeschooling so that in order for homeschoolers to claim a fundamental right to homeschool, they must be able to combine the free exercise right with the parental rights claim. In other words, both rights have to co-exist.

She will touch on what to do along the way to prepare for college.

Can Anyone Be Right about Anything? The Case against Moral Relativism

“Who are you to push your views on me?” If you’re a Christian, you’ve heard that said many times. Indeed, at both the street and academic levels, moral relativism remains the single biggest challenge to a Christian worldview. Beginning with Kant and the empiricists of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, objective moral rules were either considered non-existent or unknowable. Now, it seems the only thing our tolerant culture won’t tolerate is you claiming to be right! Indeed, the very definition of tolerance has been turned on its head!
