Taste and See that God is Good
After decades of serving Christ, I have begun to know Christ. I knew much about God’s goodness, and now I have begun to taste and see His goodness. This knowledge has transformed my relationship not only with God, but with my family, and the people of God.
The Family That Stays Together Stays Together
God created marriage and the family. Home education is a lifestyle of learning where parents and children do life together. Working, eating, reading books aloud, watching movies, all contribute to creating the unique chemistry of family.

Seeing Fractions is Understanding Fractions
Four out of five people don’t understand fractions! With one clear hands-on model, Steve demonstrates how to perform the basic operations of fractions as well as understanding equivalent fractions, reducing fractions, and mixed numbers. The grand finale will be how to convert a fraction to a decimal to a percent.
God’s Plan for Building a Family of Faith
In Deuteronomy 6, God’s simple and effective plan for the family begins with parents loving God with everything in them and having His Word on their hearts. When parents have established their own relationship with God and His Word, they are equipped to teach their children to love God and His word.
Fear Not! You and Your Children Can Learn Math Together
Each student is unique. Since parent educators are tutors, they are able to adapt to the needs of their individual child. Find out what they know, and begin there. Giving your children a firm foundation in math will equip them to succeed at every level of math. They are not behind, they are where they are.
