Logic as a High School Elective

Logic as a High School Elective

I have to confess, I was tempted to call this post "Logic for Dummies" but I was afraid you would know I'm not actually an intellectual. You see, I know that I could never possibly have taught logic to my logic-loving children without some help.

Books Comparing College Statistics

Books Comparing College Statistics

You are the high school guidance counselor. Although there are many ways to compare colleges and their statistics, you may need a book to help explain the differences between the colleges you are looking at.


My son is a junior this year.  Because he took the PSAT, he has started receiving lots of college literature via e-mail and through the regular mail.  How can we find out AND COMPARE the college's statistics such as the academic abilities of the students (i.e. what schools are more challenging and, therefore, harder to gain admission), financial aid stats, graduation rate, etc. . .  without having to spend a lot of time at each of the college's websites?

Thanks for your ministry to support homeschoolers!

Learning Leadership: Great List of Leadership Books for Teens

Learning Leadership: Great List of Leadership Books for Teens


Leadership is something you learn by doing. Become good at something, do it often for fun, and pretty soon you'll be leading others as they do it, too. The next thing you know, you're leading! Leadership is also something you can learn by reading about. Read about leadership and about examples of good leaders, to become knowledgeable and skillful; then act on that wisdom as you lead others.

Devoted to Devotions

Devoted to Devotions
Listen. Learn. Discern. Get guidance. Sounds great! Now if we could just teach our children to have a quiet time and devotional with the word of God, they could listen, learn, discern, and get guidance too!

This post contains affiliate links. If you click and buy I may make a few pennies, but not enough for a latte.




Proverbs 1:5
Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance.

Sometimes kids will gobble it up, and love reading the Word. Other times ... not so much; same kid, just different stage. It doesn't mean they have made a long-term commitment to fighting you on devotions. In general, it just means their brain is focused on other things.


There are two things that can help you train a child to have devotions:

1. Demonstrate a devotional lifestyle, by having a quiet time yourself. Show your children that real adults read their Bible on a day-to-day basis, and that will become normal behavior for them. If you need a devotional, check out my devotional for homeschooling moms. Finding the Faith to Homeschool High School.
