Oregon Christian Home Education Conference: Continuing Education for Homeschool Parents!

Oregon Christian Home Education Conference: Continuing Education for Homeschool Parents!
In many states nurses, doctors, and other professionals are required to take a certain amount of continuing education courses each year. They need to stay up-to-date on the latest research and trends. Homeschooling parents have a similar need for continuing education. Soon it will be homeschool convention time, and I encourage you to put them on your calendar now! If you don’t have a convention in your state, go to a neighboring state. Conventions can show...

God in the Gaps

God in the Gaps
Homeschoolers worry about "gaps" and how they can prevent holes in our children's education.  I have talked to a lot of adults, and I can honestly say we ALL have gaps in our education!  It's impossible to know everything, right?  So we all have gaps.  I'm pretty sure the Lord agrees: Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, We all have gaps, and our children will all have gaps. ...

Home School Education - Homeschool College this Summer!

Home School Education - Homeschool College this Summer!
Right there on the brochure it said: "Who takes CLEP? A homeschooled 15-year-old." I felt somewhat reassured when I walked into the test center, knowing that my son couldn't be THAT unusual, since his demographic was right on the brochure. And imagine my surprise!
