  • Home school and eligibility

    One of the three items never to bring up in mixed company is religion with the other two being sex and politics.  
    Living where we do in the heart of basketball land of Kentucky and Indiana, sports is a religion to many so the rule is broken nearly every day in many conversations.  
    So, I am going to break it again by going into the talk of making home schooled youth eligible to participate in extra curricular activities in public schools

  • Tough times test Christian heart

    Have you ever had a day when everything seemed to go wrong, or when everything you do seems to take five times longer than you planned or estimated?  
    Maybe you’re trying to get somewhere and your normal route is congested due to road repairs or the cars ahead of you take so long getting through a traffic light that you get caught by it.  Or you’re late for something and you can’t find a parking place.  Or maybe you’re dealing with people or even your children that aren’t behaving the way you think they should.
