A youth worker I interviewed recently shared a thing she does as a practice in her own life, and that she shares with teens. She calls it creating a “Life-giving List.” She teaches kids that God is life, that He creates it and gives it and nourishes it, so the things that we enjoy doing, that bring us joy and life and energy, can be considered gifts from him as well as places to connect with him, as the author and giver of life. So she encourages them to keep a list of those things, big and small, so that when life gets them down they can look at it, remember and connect with God in that life-giving place he designed in them. So I have been noticing this, becoming more aware of it in myself, and watching for and encouraging it in my kids.

As my daughter, ------, has begun to engage with the British Literature, History and SAT Prep Guides, I have absolutely seen her come alive. More than just about anything academic for too long. As a parent, this affirms for me that I heard and followed the leading of the Holy Spirit by attending your session at the MPE Conference in KC, then purchasing and planning on those 3 pieces for her study this year. And I hope that it encourages you as the one he used to manifest them. He knows what our kids need, how he created them, so it is glorious to listen and see what happens when he has guided us and met their need and then to see them living in their gifts, calling and how he created them to live. Everything about how these three studies are structured and work are in sync with her mind and how she works and what motivates and stimulates her. Wow. I am looking forward to seeing how the addition of the webinars will add to these already-amazing gifts.

Filled with gratitude and anticipation,


John 10:10 “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

We must have hope! To this hopeless generation history is not sacred; it is merely utilitarian.   It is not didactic; it helps make them feel better. But, to born again Christians, the future is full of God and His promises!

For such a time as this  . . .

We are not confused!  Our world is confused about what is right and wrong, about individual responsibilities, we are even more confused about toleration. We agree with G. K. Chesterton, "Toleration is the virtue of the man without convictions." We know, without a shadow of doubt, that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!

For such a time as this . . .

We are ready to assume places of leadership and influence in our dysfunctional culture. We understand that Americans in the near future will be looking to places of stability and strength for direction.  By inspiration and default, we born again Christians, who have some reason to live beyond the next paycheck will have almost an inexorably appeal.  That is good news for Christian homeschoolers. 3.6 million strong we will be depositing into places of leadership in American culture countless millions of new leaders. Our influence will move far beyond our numbers.

Finally, for such a time as this . . .

We are witnessing a cultural revolution! Revolutions are by definition radical departures from the status quo.  They are demarcations, not merely digressions.  They are new beginnings in a culture or society.  In this case,American is undergoing a cultural revolution partly spawned by the evangelical Christian community!

I got an A in my writing seminar and my professor encouraged me to apply a writing seminar fellow (tutor other undergrads in writing). Thanks Dr. Stobaugh!
