Decades-Old Views on Homeschooling - Who is Really Caged?

I was always deadset against homeschooling and the reason for my views against homeschooling had been based on one girl in our high school who had been homeschooled all the way up until they released her into our high school.  She was weird, too smart for the rest of us (haha) and just didn't know how to function in the environment or so it seemed.  I had let ONE homeschooled person influence my view of homeschooling as do so many others. I know some people now that think just because you homeschool your child is living in a cage or something.  However, once you actually do homeschool ( or get educated on the "current" homeschooling movement ) you realize that they are actually LET OUT OF THE CAGE of the public indoctrination institutions!  You realize they are more outgoing than their peers, can talk with any age - from children to adult - and seem to have a better grip on "socialization" than those in the cage .  I've seen some local kids that attend P

Sitting Your Children Under False Teaching

Something that Pastor mentioned in conference caught my attention: "If God doesn't do it to you, why would you do it to your children?"  Got me thinking about public schools and how if God wouldn't want us to listen to lies and sit under false teachings then WHY do you sit your children under it?  If God teaches us He created all then WHY would you let your child be taught a science that says He is not the Creator?  Why are you putting your children under false teachings?  Why do you let your child be taught LIES? Then I saw this today and wow......still so amazed and shocked that Christians would let their children be taught perverse things against God and his design: The California Legislature could soon pass a bill that would require school textbooks and teachers to incorporate information on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans into their curriculum. Explain to me please and back it up with God's Word on WHY you let your children be

Freezer Guide Q & A

I have been putting these off for too long, sorry for those whose questions I'm not getting answered until now.  I tried to answer all the questions in the Freezer Cooking Guide but some I wasn't able to, so I will go ahead and answer all of them now. Q. When I go to cook a meal that's already been frozen, what's the procedure? Do I need to defrost for a period of time, or simply pop the frozen dish in the oven? A.  Here is what I do: for meals that have any type of pasta , I do a quick-thaw, which is basically filling up a large bowl or the sink with room temperature water and placing the ziploc bag in the water for 10-20 minutes or until you can break it up and get it out of the bag.  Then, I put it on a skillet on the stove and heat it till very hot, constantly turning as it starts to melt even more.  This way helps to prevent soggy pasta, and heating it on the skillet also helps to make the noodles crispier.  I've done it the other way and let it thaw for h

The Window Through Which We Look

A young couple moved into a new neighborhood The next morning while they were eating breakfast, The young woman saw her neighbor hanging the wash outside. “That laundry is not very clean,' she said. “She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.” Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, The young woman would make the same comments. About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband: “Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this.” The husband said,”I got up early this morning and Cleaned our windows.” And so it is with life. What we see when watching others Depends on the window through which we look. Author Unknown
