Five Reasons to Homeschool High School-Part 1

  Have any of you ever watched the movie ‘Miracle?’ It’s a 2004 movie starring Kurt Russell. He plays the US Olympics Hockey Team Coach, Herb Brooks, who leads the young men under his charge to victory against the Russian team in the 1980 Winter Olympics. The Americans won gold that year; they were vastly […]

What Saved Me From Destroying Family

A devoted wife and mom shares what saved her from destroying family and brought restoration.
