Leading a homeschool group or want to?

A few months ago some homeschool blogger pals asked for advice from other group leaders.  I was pleased to offer my two cents and they included it in their new and cool ebook!

If you are looking for great Bible-based information on how to lead a  homeschool group, this is it folks.  Kristen and Denise are veterans in their field.  They write in such a refreshing manner you will love reading this.  It's chock full of leadership advice.

Here's a link to purchase the ebook.  You can find their blog in my list here if you'd like to visit.  Tell them I sent you, it will bless them!


(and if you want to start a homeschool group, email me, I'd love to help you)

INTERPOL, your neighborhood cop?

Yesterday I heard that Executive Order 12425 was amended twelve days ago.

Executive Order 12425 was signed by President Reagan in 1983 giving INTERPOL limited access to US soil retaining sovereignty for us here. In the vernacular that means INTERPOL could not police a US citizen on our land without adhering to the Constitution and our procedures... "innocent until proven guilty" among them and "due process".

Now that it's been amended, the international police organization, INTERPOL, can operate and does already operate on our soil in a manner of their choosing without regard for our laws and Constitution. This means they have more rights over us than the FBI and have jurisdiction over the FBI, and other of our law enforcement organizations.

For homeschoolers concerned about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, this is not a good thing, not to mention all the other implications for us as Americans. We no longer retain our identity as Americans, we are no longer our own country with our own rights and our own police force.

I wonder if we'll be given handbooks about what we can and cannot do under international law in our home towns...

What say you, America?

One year closes another opens, freedom.....

When I think of all the doors in my life that have opened and shut, it's quite dizzying!  The best is to be true to self.  Many's the time I have acquiesced only to find if I'd followed my heart, things would have been fine. 

Here's to freedom.  I wish you freedom to do as your heart chooses.  Freedom to enjoy your dwelling place, freedom to change if you'd like.  May you find freedom in thought and deed of a life lived from the inside out, not laboring to please and appease. 

It is my firm belief that when we encounter the monsters in life, we also find the Hero behind them brandishing His Sword on our behalf - instead of being backed into the corner, we see we have come around the other side and working with Him have surrounded the enemy! 

Carry on!
