To know God and to make Him known.

Homeschooling

Woods, Words, and Wonders

Our 2017 Parent Practicum speaker probably thought I was taking diligent notes. Certainly, I was scribbling furiously as he spoke of doxology and of angels continuously awed into reverent exclamation. Holy, holy, holy! Perhaps he would have been more flattered even, to know that I was penning song lyrics. The ideas were too big and too wondrous not to pour over into art.

Fresh Springs

Do you have a summer tradition for refreshment?

Every summer, I love to re-read a classic devotional book called “Streams in the Desert” by L. B. Cowman. Written in 1925, it has a truly wise, old-school style and feel. The theme of the entire book echoes the ideas of refreshment and the living waters of Christ. For me, this is much needed encouragement after a hard year of homeschooling.

Why Do We Learn to Read Latin?

Latin is the ancient language originally used in the central region of Italy once called Latium, where Rome is located. As Rome’s empire grew to include most of Europe and vast portions of Asia and Africa, the Romans’ native tongue, Latin, gradually became the official language of the peoples they had subjugated; and within a few centuries after Christ it had become the equal of Greek as a language of literature, philosophy, and theology. When the Roman empire finally disintegrated as a political entity, Latin lived on.
