Family: The ‘HOME’ in Homeschooling
Todd Wilson, The Family Man
(Opening Song: For All Generations)
Intro by Mike Winters, director of INCH:
The alternative education system, like the serpent, tells us we can become like God. We home educate our children because the government system takes our kids for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week and teaches them what is contrary to what the Bible says.
We home disciple our children because 7 days a week, 24 hours a day we want our children to know the God that created them.
We believe that ultimately home education is discipleship of our children
Homeschooling is supposed to be a good thing!
Family is the “home” in homeschooling
Our greatest impact, where we will change the world, is in our home. We don’t train in the home for greatness, it is a place for greatness. Sometimes we don’t make this family thing look very good. Our job is to make it look good. The family is where the best stuff is, but it also is the hardest.
The family has never been under attack like it is. Baloney, the family has always been under attack. The greatest danger comes not from outside the walls, but inside the walls.
Family is hard but it is good
We will remember it is hard, but we must remember it is good.
We need each other in the midst of all of this difficulty.
This homeschooling thing is a dad thing:
Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. (Tit 2:2)
Older guys are to believe what they say they believe. Older men need to encourage and mentor younger men that marriage is hard, but it is good.
Older women need to teach younger women to love their husbands. Mothers are older women to their daughters. Also to love their children. Aren’t children easy to love? Urge them to be sensitive.
We are a body of people here to encourage us to good works.
This is hard but it is good!
