Is it really August already? In just a few weeks time, children and parents all over the country will be gearing up for back-to-school time.
Unfortunately, the new school year will be starting on the heels of some very troubling events – two mass shootings, to be precise. Considering that schools have been targets of these heinous crimes in the past, it’s only natural that parents are concerned with how to protect their children, hence the topic of this post.
I’m actually going to be re-visiting a topic I covered last year – bulletproof backpacks.
(For commentary and a bit of ranting on an article covering this subject, watch the video. Ranting is my specialty. 😉)

A homeschool mom’s reflections on her children’s time in public school
If you live in the northern hemisphere, chances are that summer break is here! As always, I’m seeing so many different reactions from parents about this time of year. Some are relieved and happy to have their kids home for a couple months. Some are feeling overwhelmed and are scrambling to figure out how to keep their kids occupied for the next 12 weeks. And still others are, unfortunately, trying to overcome the obstacles that have been thrown before them (NY and CA, I’m looking at you) and are trying to figure out what will become of their children’s education once summer is over.

Today I’m going to be upfront about something a lot of my fellow believers don’t want to hear:

I’ll tell you what, guys. The past several months have been quite disturbing, to say the least. People have been coming out of the woodwork to attack homeschooling…and they’ve been coming from every angle: Continue reading “Another Attack on Homeschooling”
Today’s post is going to be a little different than the norm. While I’m usually addressing homeschool parents (or at least, parents, in general) here on my blog or on my YouTube channel, I’m searching for a different audience just this once, an audience you won’t find much content for:
Grandparents of Homeschoolers.
And it’s long overdue.

We’re living in a world today of mass censorship. Whether it’s blocking dissenting opinions on mainstream social media platforms, removing information that goes against the status quo from websites like Amazon and Etsy, or discriminating against “conspiracy theory” videos on YouTube, one thing is clear:
We, the people, are no longer trusted to do our own research or form our own opinions on anything of importance.

Well. Last weekend gave us quite a show, don’t you think?
I very rarely talk politics here on my blog, and I know that some people don’t like when I do, but here’s the thing:
I will not be silent when both Christians and homeschooling are attacked, and that seems to be the “thing to do” recently. For those of you haven’t heard, a far-left website attacked both HSLDA and conservative homeschoolers last week by claiming we are all in cahoots with Russia.
No, I’m not even kidding. Sounds like the plot of a B-rated movie, right? Continue reading “#ExposeChristianSchools, HSLDA, and Russia: I Smell Desperation”
You are your child’s first teacher.
How many times have you heard that adage? The beautiful thing about it is that it’s true, whether you homeschool your children or not.
Unfortunately, I believe this message has been lost in the shuffle of schooling, experts, and degrees. It’s something that, sadly, isn’t reflected on much anymore. Continue reading “A New Perspective on Homeschooling”
You know what I love about the New Year? Countdowns. How exciting is it to reflect back on some of the most “happening” things of the previous year?
Last week, I shared my 10 most popular blog posts from 2018. This week I’m going to do something I’ve never done before – share my most popular YouTube videos from 2018. I’m actually really excited because, as I write this, I still don’t know what they are!
That’s right. It’s all a surprise to me, too! So let’s get started! Continue reading “My 10 Most Popular Homeschool and Education Videos from 2018”
Yikes! Another year has come and gone. Am I the only one who noticed that it was gone in a flash?! This past year has been a bit of a whirlwind for me, as I’ve been spending a bit less time here on my blog and a bit more on my YouTube channel.
As always, it seems that my more controversial posts are those that have garnered the most attention. Without further ado, here are… Continue reading “My Most Popular Homeschooling and Education Posts from 2018!”
