Our Work of Faith by Maribeth Spangenberg
For a number of days I had been feeling so inadequate as a mother. Whatever was I thinking when I wanted a lot of children? Iím a failure! I have so many faults and shortcomings. And since I am homeschooling, my children see them everyday.
Will We, as Homeschool Graduates, Impact the World?
As I watch my homeschooling career draw to a close, I'm both fascinated and concerned by what I'm observing as the expanding Christian homeschooling movement begins to mature.

Against School: How Public Education Cripples Our Kids, and Why
First, though, we must wake up to what our schools really are: laboratories of experimentation on young minds, drill centers for the habits and attitudes that corporate society demands. Mandatory education serves children only incidentally; its real purpose is to turn them into servants. Don't let your own have their childhoods extended, not even for a day. If David Farragut could take command of a captured British warship as a pre-teen, if Thomas Edison could publish a broadsheet at the age of twelve, if Ben Franklin could apprentice himself to a printer at the same age (then put himself through a course of study that would choke a Yale senior today), there's no telling what your own kids could do.

(See Matt. 5:13-14 and Matt. 28:18-20)
