Serving Texas Home Schoolers for 25 Years! 

June 19, 2012  

Attention: Dallas/Ft. Worth Home Schoolers, We Need You!

  

Your Appearance Is Requested!

 

FOR: Jim Loose, home school dad who lost his daughter for three years due to unjust rulings.

 

WHY?  Jim is scheduled to be back in court, and the grandparents' attorneys seemingly want a reversal of the jury's ruling that finally brought Jim's daughter back home with him.

 

WHEN?  June 25 and 26, 8:00 a.m.

 

WHERE?  Ft. Worth Family Law Center

                  Judge Randy Catterton, 231st District Court  

 

YOUR JOB?  A respectful showing of the home school community to send a message that home schoolers support Jim Loose and an even larger message that home schoolers will not tolerate judges who unjustly take children from their parents!

 

Your presence will make a positive statement that home schoolers do not take abuse of parental rights lightly!

For many home schoolers, physical education is an overwhelming thought. The idea of having to plan another thing on top of our core academic subjects may just be too much, but as a member of the Texas Home School Coalition Association, your family can receive $120 off of a Family Time Fitness product such as Fitness 4 Homeschool curriculum, an in-home PE curriculum with activities that can be done in an area with limited space and completed within 30 to 40 minutes for each session, making its addition to your home school lineup an easy choice.

An American mother is giving hope to thousands of British families worried by a chronic lack of school places by revealing how children can be taught at home. Laura Huber has written a step-by-step guide on how to give children a perfect education outside conventional schooling.

 

Thirteen years ago, frustrated by the overcrowded, dangerous and often outdated schools in her area, Laura decided she had no choice but to home-educate her three young children.

I spent most of my time last week in Fort Worth at the Republican State Convention. There were several significant things that impressed me. First, there were a lot of home schoolers in attendance as delegates, alternates, and pages. One estimate was that more than half of the teen pages were home school students.

 

I talked to a number of old and new friends and was told more than once that people had become involved in the political process in order to protect parental rights and their freedom to homeschool. In fact, that was a common and recurring theme. One young person told me that she had been to THSC Capitol Days, that it had "changed her life," and that it was the beginning of her education about "good citizenship."

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God, even as I try to please everybody in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.

THSC REVIEW 

May 2012

 

"These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart." DEUTERONOMY 6:6

 

A proper understanding of biblical love is the foundation upon which a child's spiritual life is built. However, that foundation is only the first step. If biblical love is the foundation, a biblical worldview is the frame. It is imperative that we prepare children to think biblically. A child without a biblical worldview is like a ballplayer without a playbook. He may have spectacular abilities that will allow him to make the occasional jaw-dropping play, but more often than not he will end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, and worse, not knowing how he got there or how to get back.
