Harding Family Sent 6 Kids to College by age 12

They sent 6 of their children (so far) to college by age 12, simply amazing - and they don't even have a teacher's degree, imagine that!  They credit GOD for all of this!  It is time to STOP believing the lies that the indoctrination institutions are putting out there and realize that we, as parents, can better educate our children.  When we live in a time when most children can't read past a 4th grade level - it is time to kick the teacher's unions, the NEA and the Department of Education to the curb and get our taxes back that are paying for a system that hasn't worked in decades!

A system that is built upon humanism, on which not even God would advocate, so why do you?  Stop sitting around complaining about "how bad the schools are" and the terrible things they are teaching and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!  How about not allowing it?  How about saying "as for me and my house we are going to serve the Lord!?"  Or just keep whining about it, keep shaking your head at "how bad the schools are" and keep thinking that socialization is only done at public schools.  Jesus isn't standing outside the public schools with a sign telling you to send your children there, nor would God EVER advocate sending our children to the heathen to be taught what they are being taught today (homosexuality, immorality, atheism, etc.).  False teaching needs to be eradicated from the 'accepted' norm for Christians and this could be the start of a revolution.

I dare you to pray.  I dare you to count God as relevant to children's education.  I dare you to be different.  I dare you to have a mind of your own, separate from the popular opinion - a mind of Christ.  I dare you to be ridiculed, criticized and take a stand.  I dare you to pray and ask God WHAT and HOW your children should be taught.  I dare you to ask God WHO should teach your children   I dare you to ask God WHO should have your children's minds the majority of their day to form and mold them.  Then.....the revolution will begin in full force because you see, God will tell you just WHO should teach and WHAT they should teach and HOW they should teach children of those that believe in the Bible and the true God.  I dare you to take your children's minds back.

Whoever Controls the Schools.......

........Controls the World.  You can't go wrong training your children up in the ways of the Lord for the majority of their day!!

Here are some wonderful quotes from the video:

Non-Christian education puts the child in a vacuum. The result is that child dies. Christian education alone really nurtures personality, because it alone gives the child air and food. Modern educational philosophy gruesomely insults our God and our Christ. How, then, do you expect to build anything positively Christian or theistic upon a foundation which is the negation of Christianity and Theism? No teaching of any sort is possible except in Christian schools. ~ Cornelius Van Til

Is the Bible true? My science, health, and literature teachers said no. Is God providential in the affairs of men and nations? My history, social studies, and economics teachers said no. Is there design and purpose evident in creation? My biology, chemistry, and math teachers said no. Are there absolutes? My sex-education teacher said no and my friends said “cool.” Is God relevant to any subject taught in the public school? All of my teachers and all of my books said no. Consequently, every day for twelve years the content and context of my public schooling said there is no God, and even if there is, He does not matter. ~ Bradley Heath

Here is a screenshot from the video showing typical hours of a public school child:

When do you teach your child about God with those hours above?  All that time away from you and your influence as a parent and rather spent in an atheistic, humanistic and ungodly school system.  God gets 20 minutes or sometimes not even that.  Is God important?  Does He care that Christian children are being taught atheistic education?  God-less history?  False teaching in a creation-less science?

Taking Risks With Faith?

I'm going to get personal in this post, but something has been weighing heavy on my mind for a while now - having more children.  I had said that there is no way I can have another child because my pregnancy was horrific BUT during my c-section they discovered the "why" and chances are, my future pregnancy would not be so horrific because they fixed the issues internally.

Then, there is the issue of another c-section, which is major surgery and always carries with it risks and long recovery.  Is my body able to handle it again?  Can my family handle it again with me unable to do much for a few months?

Lastly, there is the issue that I haven't yet blogged about on here but will now.  My daughter, who is now 9, had torticollis of the neck and plagiocephaly because she was literally stuck in my pelvis for a month before birth.  She came out and could only turn one way without pain and her neck continued to get tighter to where she would scream if you tried to turn her the other way and it caused plagiocephaly.  Her plagiocephaly was not just a flat head, it was severe and her face was growing sideways.  She wore a helmet for a year and thank God it fixed her facial features and head almost perfect.  We also had to go to weekly, sometimes bi-weekly therapy for her neck and head.  Zach did not get stuck, which is what I had prayed!  He had a very small head, smaller than average, which is why I believe he didn't get stuck.  However, due to what they believe is my "too small" womb - he had a suture fused at birth that caused a metopic ridge on his forehead that is now poking out, not terribly, but noticeably.  We were assuming he was going to have to have surgery on his head to open it, as most babies with craniosynostosis do, but thank God, he didn't need the surgery because his forehead is square and big enough now that his brain has room to grow!  He does however have brachycephaly, which is flattening of the back of the head that causes a cone-like head on top.  His is not severe but it is moderate, so he made need a helmet in a month, if the measures we are doing now, do not help his head.  He doesn't have any facial symmetry issues though, which is good.

In the opinion of the head cranio-doctor at the children's hospital, any future children I will have will most likely have head issues and it could be worse.  There is either a gene causing this or more likely, my womb is too small for the baby.  If I was to have twins, which is a higher possibility at my age, then the situation could be dangerous.

I still want more children deep inside.  It isn't something that I can just dismiss, though a lot of times I don't think I could "handle" more - I have a desire for more.  Do I just have faith that if God gives us another child that we can take these risks and it is in God's hands?  Or, do I rather, see the risks and assume that is my "sign" or whatever that I should not proceed with any more children?  These are questions I'm faced with right now and that have troubled me for a while.  If I do want to have another, then I want it sooner than later, within 2 years.  I also can't seem to let go of my daughter's toys and clothes and some of the baby stuff that Zach has grown out of.  I also am not sure if I should get rid of my maternity clothes and all of this is so heavy on my heart!  I don't want to just be hasty and say, well, that's it - no more and then live life wondering if this was a time when you just trust God despite the risks.

Please pray for us that we will do the right next step, whatever God wants.  If you have been here, let me know and share your story.  Thanks for listening to me think out loud! :-)
