I have felt the same was as One Christian Dad for a long time!!

One Christian Dad

ImageWhy do you have a title of programs that promote ungodly lifestyles?  Because I have seen them.  I enjoyed them.

But I have another reason.

Recently I was talking with some Christian friends when one asked what movie he should watch with his wife – he wanted to laugh so he asked for a good comedy.  My friends then recommended the Hangover.  I admit I laughed at it when I watched a few years ago, and in my enthusiasm to be “one of the guys” I also recommended it. Later, as I thought about the movie, I began to recall that it was not very “Christian.”  So I discovered, after some research, that The Hangover  has 91 occasions of the f-word , 41 poop words (Sh*t etc.), 14 crude references about a person’s bum, 13 “hells,” and nine slang terms for the male reproductive organ.

Confessions of An Imperfect Homeschooler has nailed my problem on the head. Love this post!

Homeschool Resource

A homeschool mom from my church recently came over to share some wisdom with me for getting started in August. She led me to a fantastic resource that I am super excited about and wanted to share.

Classical Academic Press has family resources that are interesting and easy for children. I am starting off with the New Testament because I believe learning about Jesus is the most important part of life. (We’ll work through the Old Testament afterwards). They even have materials for Logic, Latin/Greek/French/Spanish, and even educational resources that help you plan your teaching. I am super excited about this! I made my order yesterday so I can’t give any specific reviews yet, but I have high hopes!

It’s worth checking out even if you don’t want to order– you may run across someone else who needs a resource.
