Reggie Osborne: She Said Yes, Once

| April 25, 2017

I stood on a stage in the church I’d grown up in.  I can only vaguely remember my wedding, but I’ll never forget seeing Allison emerge from the hallway at the back of the sanctuary.  Beautiful. Looking up at me through her veil, she smiled.  She has always been a shy person, so she should […]

Jen author of Old Paths has some great tips here! As a busy homeschooling mother of a large family I am continually looking for ways to streamline our days and for tools to help in that endeavor.

FBC: Giving Our Daughters “The College Experience”

| September 5, 2015

Ever wonder why we’re having the cultural experience that we’re having right about now? Ever wonder why we’re having the “gay marriage is ‘legal’” experience now in America? (See: “Supreme Court” Votes for Wrath of God Upon America.) Ever wonder why we’ve been – and continue to have – the “child-sacrifice for convenience is ‘legal’ […]

Time for Congress to Investigate Bill Gates’ Coup

| July 1, 2014

Editor’s note: The gap between home school students and government schooled students will continue to widen as Common Core wreck havoc on the minds and souls of the children in our nation. The story about Bill Gates’ swift and silent takeover of American education is startling. His role and the role of the U.S. Department of Education […]

More Parents Choose Homeschooling Due To Common Core

| June 3, 2014

As Common Core champions like Jeb Bush, Bill Gates, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce continue to attack parents, teachers, and taxpayers for what they claim are “myths” spread about the centralized standards initiative, many parents across the nation are not convinced. They are refusing to subject their children to the stress, pressure, and confusion […]

Save Up To Marry or Marry To Save Up?

| January 22, 2014

Data suggests “married couples seem to build more wealth on average than singles or cohabiting couples. Why might it matter if marriage fades among working and middle class Americans? Even though marriages are not guaranteed to last, healthy marriage relationships do promote human flourishing. Marriage successfully integrates emotional intimacy, parental responsibility and economic cooperation into […]

More people waking up to the college illusion

| January 26, 2013

We’ve been saying for years that the brick-and-mortar model was outdated and would go the way of the dodo. We’ve been mocked and misquoted and told we’re trying to prevent women from getting an education, when that’s absolutely not the case. We’re just in favor of a real education that doesn’t involve a lifetime of […]

Chucking College?

| December 15, 2012

Melanie Ellison has just published a little gem of a book that will challenge old notions of “higher” education and point readers to a better (and far less expensive) path. Melanie has done homeschool grads (and, truly, all high school students) a great favor by pulling together research, analysis of modern educational trends, and personal stories from the […]

Abstinence: A Topic Too Often Avoided

| December 6, 2011

From a letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal: Spare us the statistics about fewer teen pregnancies and sexually-transmitted-disease rates falling with increased sex education. Abortion-on-demand and widespread birth control may affect the number of teen pregnancies, but they are not doing a lot for our children’s self-confidence, modesty or mutual respect. Are […]

The Restraints of Sexual Freedom and the Battle for Free Speech

| December 6, 2011

“Restraints” of “Freedom?” Yes, indeed. We’ve argued this many times, and it is refreshing to see the same lines of logic in this piece. One person’s “freedom” very often results in the oppression or harm of other people. The rise of feminism, the Pill, and other contraceptive forms coincided with a new era of sexuality, […]

Smoke and mirrors

| October 3, 2011

This piece from Aussie writer Bernard Toutounji at Mercatornet is spot on: Why do governments want us to believe that smoking cannot be safe but promiscuous sex can?… I have never smoked, have never had any desire to smoke and nothing frustrates me more than walking down the street and breathing in the secondhand smoke […]

Lack of parenting to blame for teen moms

| September 30, 2011

This is a cogent letter to the editor that states what should be so obvious: throwing contraceptives and sex ed. at the out-of-wedlock birth problem is not and never has been the answer: During my 40 years in health care, I have provided care to thousands of women, the majority of which have been teens. […]

Rethinking feminism

| August 27, 2011

Students in women’s studies courses throughout the United States hear stories of “girl-meets-birth-control” or awakening the inner feminine mystique. But I’ve learned something else in my history class at a Christian college. We were reading a speech Adlai Stevenson gave at Smith College’s 1955 commencement. Stevenson, the Democratic presidential candidate in 1952 and 1956 (losing […]
