Is Your Family Stuck in the Raging River of Busyness?

Sometimes our lives feel like we have been thrown into a rushing river. We are just trying to survive, barely keeping our heads above the water and avoiding the jagged rocks.

We are driven by what the culture says we must do, by what others want us to do and by the gratification of our immediate desires.

Ten Things My Personal Trainer Taught Me about Homeschooling

Self-doubt swam through my mind as I climbed the steps to the workout floor of my local fitness center. Would I be able to handle this? Could I do it? Would I throw up?

They desire to do more than just teach reading, writing and arithmetic. Their goal is that their children have a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ and follow Him.
