Vaccine Stories Your Were Never Told is a movie put out by Epoch Times, the most trust non-partisan news source in the country. When a person is tested in the fires of Tianemen Square and CCP attempted murder, then one is a hardened steel  sword of truth in the USA.

On the other hand, when a source or platform consistently censors truthful, important material, yet permits violence, hatefulness, silliness, etc, one must wonder about their integrity and usefulness.

If you are tired and inundated, and working on providing a clean food supply to your family, fine. But if you are newer to this discussion, please don’t miss watching this. You are invited to post your summary,and reasoned analysis.


Concluding out series on the hot topic of “school choice” actually meaning “vouchers.” Like so many other issues, the words used are used in order to deceive. Styled as educational freedom, this is an attempted takeover of all private education, even homeschooling, by the very government that ruined public education. The shekels come with shackels.

Heather Hall uses her principle approach to unpack the situation. Dr. Max Lyons suggests an alternative: congregations providing scholarships. And Keven Novak concludes the series with the warning that if we think this will be increased freedom, we need to think again.

This is only a taste of what they have to say. I strongly encourage you to get the full document: Vouchers: Shekels with Shackles.  It is available in pdf format to download right now if you sign up on our announcement list. Or, you may get it at the publishers: Front Line Ministries. Please get it and share it.

The Discussion at the State Capitol

I am seeing more discussion about this on social media and even with postcards coming to my home. Largely they appear to be the leftists being against it, charging that the conservatives just want more money for themselves, for private schools.  They argue that public money should not go to fund religion. Hmm. And then, I see politicians smiling broadly at how they are increasing freedom. That, in itself, should give you pause.

If you weren’t informed: rights come from God. Then we, as free people, agreed to let government have some duties, limited duties, to protect us, basically. Anytime a politician claims to give you rights, they are off the path of American political philosophy and are enslaving  you. If that was not taught and underlined in your elementary schooling, that in itself shows the degradation of education and the danger in our current society. You very much need to read this little compilation –please.

Homeschooling Foundations

Once someone decides to home educate, then they nearly always want to know about curricula and how to teach reaching. Those are important questions, and I do answer them. But those are not the right questions, nor the first questions. First consider what your child needs to learn, and how they need to learn it. You can think through all that in my book, *Learn at Home For Great Shalom.”  (Also available in eformat, but I recommend getting the paperback.) Then you can choose your curricula.

For teaching reading and math, go to the store and choose the series on that topic: “How to Teach…”  Super sale; lowest price ever

The first task of home education is…. socialization! Or better said: conveying character. Or better said: discipling for success. Wow! so many linguistic landmines! Definitions have destinations!

Think through these things with me. HIstory, literature, and everything conveys a training in character, and that is more foundational even that reading. It helps the child learn to learn. It keeps the child from having to be controlled. It makes a strong family and a strong nation when people can be self-governing. That starts with virtue or character… in short, self-governance.
