Why homeschool? Because it brings God glory, that's why! :)


Let me know if you like this post! :)

"Just why is Christian Homeschooling 'to the glory of God?'
Christian Homeschooling is to God's glory because parents are seeking to teach their children from a perspective that honors God as who He is,GOD.
God over all, creator, redeemer, the life-giving vine that noursishes His people- all of us,His branches.

In this schooling, we teach Creationism. We teach our children that the theory of Evolution has one very big flaw- a flaw that cancels it out- that flaw is that this theory of creation and adaption leaves out God. We teach our children that we are to love one-another as God first loved us, to serve and comfort one-another in our needs as God never ceases to serve and comfort us. We teach them that the order God loves and ordained is celebrated in Mathematics, and in Science. We teach them to use their creative minds, such as God gifted us with, in His image. We may do a lot of the same things as the world's educational system does them, with one holy exception: we honor God in all that we do, we acknowledge Him and Praise Him, we say it is Ok to talk about Him and His commandments!, we learn His way's and not the way's of the world.

Christian Homeschooling honors the mother's exceptionally important role in the home.The position of the Homeschool teacher is one filled with women who boast in and trust in Jesus' Christ's redeeming work on the cross. We raise our children up for Him as we lovingly teach our children the ABC's and the 123's, how to walk as a believer in this sometimes dark world, how to be a light on a hilltop.

For these reasons, and so many more, God is glorified through our Christian Homeschooling. Be encouraged, mothers, for this is our heartwarming task- though we are sinners through and through still God allows us to partake with Him in this glorious task of raising our children, part of the next generation, up to know Him, honor Him, love Him, and love His commandments."

oh I qualify for aid, I just don't take it because my tuition can usually be covered by scholarships, but what's left over + textbooks & living expenses I pay for with my own earnings. (I actually go ahead and pay my tuition as well, because scholarships here are handed out in October & January -- AFTER tuition is due -- and then I just keep the scholarship funds). I'd be last to pride myself on not having to pay for "one bit" of my education out of pocket, and you only need to revisit my summer blog entries to notice I was working 6 days a week to fund the 8 months a year I wouldn't be working at all =p Why would I ever brag about receiving something unearned? That's contradictory to everything I believe.

Angel, I am out of talk too. Thanks for the good-luck wishes. I finally finished my reply to your PM and I think I have answered all of you questions quite *cough* thoroughly, please do check my research though as I do not think that I am the expert on any subject ;) B: Didn't you say somewhere that you have never been able to attain any kind of Federal aid for your education, and that you prided yourself on not having to pay for one bit of your education out of pocket so far, not even a textbook? I distinctly remember someone telling me this about you....

angel, I think you guys are scary ;) well, a little- I'm not really brought to fear though because I trut in God ;) And stop commenting on my blogspot.com blog..... and Bridg, I hope that a lot of people who went to community colleges read your disgusting comments and rail on you for being so uninformingly judgemental and mean spirited- you didn't even know what a community college was before I told you, and now you suddenly know who goes to them and who doesn't? Many bright folks start out at community college and continue on to four-year universities, many on to Masters and Phd levels, such as myself and many of my friends. Since you value education sooooo much you should know that I have waaaay more education than you do under my belt, and yet I am the first to say that I don't know it all. And I don't act like a know it all either, like you do ;) Of course there are dumb people in America, just like there are dumb people in Canada. And NO, NOT everyone is able to go to Harvard or Stamford or Brown or any other Ivy League school, they are Ivy League because they are excellent schools that only accept a select number of students. Money does keep a lot of people out of college, but that's why those people can start at community colleges and then transfer over to an Ivy League or other University for their last 2 years... but then, you have already pegged those people as stupid and poor if they go to community college...too bad for all of us who don't have mommy and daddy to pay for their education!

"I just assumed that since you esteem yourself so highly that you went to an American University, since Canada's U.'s are cr@p in comparison." hahahaha You're right, I'm sure my university is less than community college in the USA, where only poor people go. After all, there's no dumb people in America. Everyone's Harvard-calibre, some are just not as rich as others. (I skipped the God part of your post. Too long. Summarize plz).

justanerd1975 justanerd1975 5 years 45 weeks
Bridget, your right I didn't do my homework and study what school you go to, I just assumed that since you esteem yourself so highly that you went to an American University, since Canada's U.'s are cr@p in comparison. But maybe you need to get over the border a little bit more often to see that. I love people who think they know it all because they are usually the one's who know the least as a whole, and their relentless peacock strutting gives me great fodder for my comedic routines ;) University of Pennsylvania is a very good school, one of the best in the country and turns out a lot of physicians as well as other professionals in many different areas of expertise. I don't know about 'trumping' them. I do know that UPENN is an excellent school. I'm sad that you delude yourself into thinking that "jr.colleges"(American slang for Community Colleges) are for the unintelligent because in reality they are smaller university's that offer Associate's degrees for a much better price than the bigger, 4-year institutions offer- and American's who don't come from rich families can go there to comeplete their first two years of college and then transer into a 4-year university where they can complete the remainder of their degree, and specialize as they desire with the remaining 2-3 years of education. You need to learn more about how the American educational system works before you can judge it. Anyone who would say that their Canadian school 'trumps' U.S. schools, and then say that they do not even know what a Jr/Comm. college is, and then admit that they actually judge jr/comm.colleges without actually knowing what they are....sounds like the blind man trying to lead the group to me. Get in the back of the line and follow along, untill you know enough to stand out in front and boast your opinions, B-and that's what they are, opinion's, not facts. You will find out that there is a God, if not in life, then on your death day- and His glory will fill your heart, just as it has filled mine. The sad part is that you will have to say goodbye to that wonderful peace and love that is God, because you will have made your choice. You will have decided that while there was still time to accept payment for all your sins, you would reject that offer and would remain on your high horse, full to the throat of the knowledge that you think is going to save you, your spirit's longings choked out by your increasingly hardened heart. On that day that you meet God, you will wish for any opportunity to go back into the days of living, and be able to choose Him instead. You will beg and plead for this chance, but God cannot deny Himself and the promises He has made to mankind so he will cry with you as you are sent away from Him. He wishes that none would perish, but He has given us free will. Many of us will use our free will to choose to be adopted into God's family, knowing that he will take anyone without being a respector of persons. Many others will choose to reject God. The day will come for them,too, when they will be sent away from God's presence. And in that moment they will descend into Hell where satan, that evil nemisis dragon, will gleefully take these lost souls for himself, including yours :( I say this to you not because I am a believer in "Fire and Brimstone Preaching" like the old-time Baptist's used to do(lol;) but because I do see the importance of keeping the reality of hell central, along with the reality of The Cross. Knowing the Truth sets us free, B. You like to know things, don't you? Set your mind to learn more than just Science, then. Be well-rounded. All true intellectuals are well-rounded,B, and we all know you really want to be seen as intellectual. So, if that is how you want the world at large to see you than start studying other areas of knowledge than just one- be well-rounded, study Martin Luther and Christianity's beginnings, learn a thing or two about the Catholic Church and how it came to be. Learn about allllll the different religions in the world, so YOU can be diverse. You see, my 14 yr. old is more diverse in his education than you are in this way, because he has parents who seek to teach him about all of the people in the world, not just American's and just our Religion's brother's and sister's(or in your case, just about Canada and Atheism's tenants....) I will close, just for you, with more of my ....'s which mean that the conversation is not yet over.... ;) "If the lion lies down with the lamb, the lamb must be replaced frequently." --Attributed to Martin Luther In the immediate aftermath of the terrorist violence of September 11, 2001.

Thnx Chancleta, and you are right- diversity is taught by loving your neighbor, whomever he or she is, and that can be done anywhere on earth- a playground, an art or ballet class, a Christian Communicator's Debate (highly reccomend them), etc. I hardly found an opportunity to love my neighbor in Public School. I'm not saying that there are no teachers who would go out of their way to teach this basic humanity, but I am saying that I haven't run across one yet, and I was a Navt brat so I went to A LOT of different schools, all over the U.S., East and West coast alike and many states inbetween....

I wasn't aware I attended an XYZ American University. Thought I was living in Canada attending an institution that trumped most US Ivy Leagues in the latest world ranking (my pres is pretty pissed about our position, but hey, I'm proud). We cleaned UP in science & med ;) I don't know what a junior college is, but it sounds silly. We have a college here, it's not a junior college, just a normal one that makes teachers and nurses. It's for people that weren't smart enough to get into university. Don't know where Jung, Marx & Freud came in (I hate those guys, all three of them). Probably won't yield to God in my later life. Like you say of the university thing, "been there, done that". Sorry! PS. I can't give glory to a god because there isn't one. And I find it distracting when you put "..." at the end of everything.

It's a good thing our children are our responsibility to raise. I applaud parents who choose to home school. More and more I become outraged by the garbage the public school system is spoon feeding our young. Telling a mother she's setting her child up for failure is rude, vile, short cited, and wrong. As for diversity - parents that home school can teach their children about diversity on a playground or in a ballet class or in little league.
justanerd1975 justanerd1975 5 years 46 weeks
as if you would take the " more intellectual" ground, and not LOL if someone in your circles said "creation-tainted teaching"... ?...Anyways, I'm not posting in my blog to be amusing to you, and it amazes me how interested you are in me, a big nobody, right? I mean, don't you have some research work to do for some big grant your submitting to your university to plug away at disproving Christianity through Science, or something? Isn't that the kind of stuff you'd like us all to believe your working on? Right, then- you keep to learning what they feed you at your junior or sophmore level at XYZ Standard American University(which I wonder if you think is a cr@p school anyways, since you think all Public Schools are cr@p schools,)and I will stick to what I am learning now, since I have already attained the degree your seeking after, and on top of that the next one you'll be lusting after when you complete this one...whenever that will be. You see, I'm not intimidated by what your university teaches because I have been there, done that. I also know that almost all of what they teach is slanted against God, not to mention against Native American's, Blacks, Women, the Irish,etc. etc. and the list goes on & on... when you sit through enough history,sociology and women's studies classes you will see this for yourself, and begin to question your Alma M.'s tenacity over the years. Even Science is riddled with racism and sexism, slanting history and biology and the psychology you have to take,as it goes so I am sure you have noticed it a bit- you have not had the viel lifted from your eyes by God just yet, so you are not to blame for your beliefs. You are merely following along with what you have been taught. Some day, hopefully soon, God will lift it and you will have the same experience that I did: you will be shown, and suddenly really see, the futility of what you have dedicated your life and your intellectual energy to thus far; you will see that man knows a tiny pinch of what God knows, and that all that man has learned and accomplished during his/her billions of years on Earth has all been a gift from God's hand, and He is just waiting for us to discover all the rest that He already knows about, and we have yet to see. I am not intimidated or shamed by those who think they know so much, because I know that they really know nothing. Not in a rude way, but in a spiritual way- and in a practical way- their eyes are not yet open, so they think they know. And any Christian who has been to secular schools will tell you that they have learned a lot, they appriciate the edu., but that they learned more on a practical level at seminary than they ever did during their four years plugging away at XYZ American University. I would say the same thing. And, in humility, that we are granted upon conversion because we are humbled by our sinfullness and God's holiness and the great chasm of difference inbetween Him and His beloved, in this humility we will not seek to convince others of how much we know all the time because we, unlike you unbelievers, already know that alllll we could ever know will be nothing anyways in the grand scheme of things, and compared to God,so we are grateful for what we have learned and gracious about what we know we haven't....besides, "the more a man knows,the less he knows" is very true, indeed. Anyways, I have actually read that about Darwin(my unc. is a huge Science buff) and didn't mention it merely because most Univ.'s teach that Evo. is Darwin's theory & the world at large credits him to it mainly, and the world at large calls it evolution(though most any midddle-schooler has heard of natural selection and could add that on to the theory), so , in the spirit of world-wide recognition of what the hay I'm talking about, I stuck to that. Not that the fact that he had proteges takes away from the fact that he was in on the theory, and he said that in fact he did feel that his faith did negate much of that theory...... "Can't blame the man, he was working in a time before we'd figured out DNA. He did really well with what he had, but the genetic evidence for evolution makes the theory all but irrefutable...." Well, I agree with the first part of what you said but not the second, I naver questioned that D. was a smart man and he did realize that God created all things to evolve-kudos for him. The 'theory' that all things evolve is all but irrefutable but taking GOD out of it is what is troublesome about you Science folks.... now why can't you just admit to yourselve's that God planned it all? Would giving the glory to God instead of climate changes and survival of the fittest somehow make your researcher's less of a scientist? .... "Most creationists don't know this because they're completely ignorant of what R/DNA is,....." Once again, you assume that m=non-believer's are somehow more intelligent than believers. Or, that believers did not bcome educated, whereas non-believers did. Wrong, wrong, wrong and wrong. Natural Selection/Evo. was rejected by most people(your words) because it also worked into it's theory a blanket Rejection Of God, that is why.... "..but for the rest of us don't that don't flinch and get defensive at the mere mention of the e-word, we've learned that while God may or may not exist, evolution certainly does and saying otherwise cannot be categorized as anything but irrational, ignorant, or blatantly dishonest -- or all three, I'll let you pick." Once again, I am not intimidated by your or anyone else calling me irrational, ignorant or dishonest. Maybe I am a tad annoyed that you keep insisting that I said Evo/Nat. Select. has no validity, when in fact I said that it is all but irrefutable EXCEPT that it Refutes God, so therefore it is cr@p- but that's just your way, so I am getting kind of used to you now. Like a rabbit gets used to eating pellets but wishes for a big, fresh, crunchy carrot... And we will see if my children fail academically, shall we? Since the eldest is already accepted into college at 14 based on his performance in courses he has already completed at the local jr. college I think he has quite proven that he is intellectually able, now there is just the factor of motivation and working hard at reaching his goals. I believe he will master that and so will the others. All in time, 'friend'- all in time. Feel free to check back with us in any number of years and Taste and See That God Is Good To Us ;) I have no anxiety for my children's future, and I trust God wholeheartedly. If His plan is for me to homeschool them and I am fathful to do it how He leads me to, then He is faithful to work it all out for the good. I rather feel tha your the one having detrimental psychological hurdles lodged in front of you, because as a truth-seeker later in life, you will, as I did, and all of us do, have to overcome the nonsense they taught you at XYZ U. and you will have to conform your heart, mind and will to the way's of God- waaaaay different than your little buddies Marx and Jung and Freud. No amount of Science will ever be able to disprove God, in fact you all keep getting closer and closer to Him with each dig and each trip to space and each cell divided. And how do you know that my children will not be doctors or scientists? My friends husband, a devout man of God, is a Science Phd and chooses to teach Middle School students over all the more lucrative careers he could be chasing, because he believes in teaching kids solid Science and how important Science is for kids to learn, get used to, and begin to like it and use it. My son's favorite subject is Science, would you be surprised to know? ;) BTW, he already knows all about Evo/Nat. Select. and he also is taught that it is error-riddled because it rejects God. I never said that it's damaging for him to learn about Science,dear exhausting Bridget, you said that. I said that I choose to educate him and the others with a Christian curriculum, and I always will. In fact your last line made me LOL because my son's dream and goal is to become an Mechanical Engineer, LOL LOL LOL :) How did you know????

Why would I stop reading your posts in particular? I read whatever looks interesting, and I've already told you how wildly amusing I find it that someone can say such things as "evolution-tainted teaching" (that was a big LOL), so knowing I'll find such hilarity in your posts is one of the reasons I continue to come round. I'm well aware of Darwin's faith and whatnot, not that it has any influence on his data and results, but I'm also well aware Darwin never had a theory of evolution. You should read carefully, I only noted he played an important role, I never credited him with the entire event, and anyone that does, doesn't know what evolution is. There is no such thing as the Darwin theory of evolution -- he had a theory of natural selection. It's a foundation of evolution, but Darwin made a few mistakes. Can't blame the man, he was working in a time before we'd figured out DNA. He did really well with what he had, but the genetic evidence for evolution makes the theory all but irrefutable. Most creationists don't know this because they're completely ignorant of what R/DNA is, let alone aware of the strange "coincidence" that its structure and function is all but identical in every living thing on the planet, but for the rest of us don't that don't flinch and get defensive at the mere mention of the e-word, we've learned that while God may or may not exist, evolution certainly does and saying otherwise cannot be categorized as anything but irrational, ignorant, or blatantly dishonest -- or all three, I'll let you pick. Anyway, this is all besides the point. The real point is you're setting your children up for failure. Axing out career paths they'll never get to take because of the huge, detrimental psychological hurdles you're placing in their way. No biochemists or archeologists, definitely no geneticists. No futures in virology, or almost any discipline of medicine or research for that matter. Veterinary medicine is probably also out -- it'd be way too damaging to learn how alike animals & humans are in utero. Probably won't get any math majors or engineers either. Those disciplines are too logic-based. All great careers, all gone. True American tragedy.

Bridget? Sigh. I thought you would stop reading my posts by now...you just know we are going to disagree about education, don't you? Obviously you and I don't see eye to eye about what is truth and what is fallacy. God created animals,people,nature itself to evolve. Did you know that Darwin himself converted to Christianity later in his life, and ammended his theory of evolution to include God's hand in why things evolve? That's not something the prof's at any secular college are bound to teach. You are wrong about homeschooling preventing social interaction-sure, it limits interaction in the public school setting, but not in any other life circumstance. The great majority of homeschooled kids see a lot more of other kids and other teachers than thier parents in a lot more than just play groups and at church functions, between classes and sports and clubs, boy scouts and even jobs for kids 14 and up such as babysitting or working at a restaurant, as my friend's son is old enough to do. Our kids see plenty of other races and ethnicities, 'classes' of people, and varying environments. Our church is quite diverse as well, racially and economically. The "socialization" my kids "miss out on" in the public school setting is socialization I am just fine with them not getting; the great majority of parents these days fail at raising their kids to act right. I actually disagree with you about all public ed. being shhh too; in fact I am just fine with the educational offerings of our school system here, except for the racially slanted textbooks and evolution-tainted teachings. I think the teachers are overloaded, having an entire classroom full of kids of varying learning style and innate ability to be responsible for, and beyond academics they sure do not have the time/energy to deal with protecting your kids from the other kids on top of it. Did you know that public schooling came to be because of all the orphans the govt. suddenly found themselves responsible for during and after the war? That is when Public Schooling was birthed, and it was not meant to be a "forever thing", as it has become....

I'd be concerned first, about stunting your children's potential in future science courses (university) by failing to teach evolution. An entire half-year of introductory university biology is devoted to he archeological record and the history of evolution, including the people that played important roles (Darwin, Lamarck, etc). Leaving those parts out is rewriting history. Also, any lessons on DNA/genetics, embryological development, or current technologies in medicine would have to be completely disregarded to uphold evolution -- and that's rewriting the present! There's also the whole bit about it being immoral to lie to anyone, but especially children you're responsible for, by teaching such nonsense as creationism as fact.. Secondly, home-schooling prevents social interaction with other children, and in situations where there is other children (play groups, church etc), there's probably a lack of diversity in the group: aka. all the other kids are middle class caucasian american christians that are home-schooled too. Whereas attending public school would allow a child learn very early in life that people of different ethnic & religious groups exist, and how to peacefully interact with them. On the other hand, the US school system is such a shithole, home-school is the only option to raise a functional human being in some places.
