New Light on Education from an American Founder

I love John Adams! Here are some thoughts on education. Enjoy the last of your summer and come back to the school year refreshed, with new hope.


Good News and Bad News in Education

We are playing a re-run from 2014, but we will stand behind the offer. I'm very busy right now getting ready for school. Woohoo! We will have some good news in education for some students, parents, and faculty.


Biblical Worldview Informed, if not Caused, American Liberty

Hope you had a wonderful Independence Day celebration -- assuming you are in the States. Hope our Canadian friends had a happy Canad Day. Wherever you are, I hope you live in a nation that is free. Today, some people are so little knowledgeable about Christianity as to think that it was, is and always has been an agent of oppression, when nothing could be farther from the truth. Notice that only nations that have considerable Biblical worldview are free from corruption and have true freedom....


Whose Job Is is to Teach the Kids?

We are beginning a little series on independence and liberty, so please wait for your "July 4th" topic until next week. We will start at home -- with teaching the children. Hope you have a happy and blessed Independence Day celebration.

Originally a radio broadcast in August 2008. For people who want to go deeper on this, ready for strong meat, Just this month I found pertinent message from Damon Thompson. Being a father is more important than being a warrior or a preacher or a whatever. Legacy is generational....


Testimony of Miraculous Healing – 5 Year Old Boy Expected to be Dead

In celebration of our 10th anniversary, I am playing the testimony of my grandson's healing. It was this experience, walking through my family's difficulties that brought about this broadcast. The 5 year old was expected to die; zero percent chance of living they said. The medic was speechless when I told him that my grandson came out of a coma. The nurses thought I was a nut to hope that the child would ever be more than a vegetable. They were speechless when he walked out of the hospital...


Testimony About the use of Innovative Educational Practices

To celebrate GSB's 10th birthday, let's return to the original two testimonies. In this, I tell about how much progress my grandsons made when I used some innovative practices. I hope it gives you great faith and determination -- and maybe some good ideas. Never give up with your children! And don't necessarily believe that the grim outcomes that "the system" predicts if you use better measures. Indeed, a comment was made about "the system" being so fake (whether it is food, financial,...


BE The Village

Is Hilary Clinton right that it takes more than just a parent or two to rear a child? Is she right in her plans to extend government reach in order to serve more children? Is this the best way? Let's consider this. A more in depth and point-by-point consideration is in my book. And guess what? There is a 15% off sale TODAY. Just use the code: FIFTEEN. Looking back at the stats, I am very confused. Do you like Bible Studies or interviews with providers more? Is there a pattern about what is...


How to Pray for Your Children

This is a sample of a 7 part series on how to pray for your children. "Contending in Prayer" was what the old saints of yesteryear said. Actually, we are not fighting God or people, and really maybe not the devil. Maybe we are perservering and so maybe our fight is with "flesh" or "lower nature." Anyway, I used that old language of "contending" profitably. And many people were encouraged. Today you can order the 7 part series, on CDs, by sending a check for for $70.00 (now until June 1...

Material for Home Educators about the Founding of the USA on This National Day of Prayer

Today, 5/3/18 is the National Day of Prayer. So, since I am doing a retrospective series, I thought I would post the first of the series I did on Citizenship for July the 4 back in 2012. Home educators in Texas know that they are tasked with teaching citizenship; would that all teachers took the same as seriously! All of us should pray earnestly for our leaders and in order to live in peace, just as we are instructed by the Bible. Current events would lend some urgency to that...

Mrs. Jennifer Sangave, from Lindamood-Bell in Austin, gave us an inspiring interview. She says they have statistics and claim a high success rate, even when children who have not done well in other programs. An individualized plan is the key. Hear what she has to say.


Child Having Trouble Reading? Test this First!

Dr. Carol Zuccone, the Irlen representative explains this fairly common light sensitivity. Often there is a fairly easy remedy too. She tells us what mothers and teachers might look for. She says that it is educators that test for this, and so it gets overlooked by other professionals, but if this light sensitivity is not ruled out, then other tests are skewed. Next week we will wrap up our series on what to do when the road to reading becomes rocky. After that I plan to post again the...


Blessed Resurrection Sunday

I hope you have a blessed Resurrection Sunday. Make it a wonderful time of worship and a wonderful time with your family. Think, this might be the last "Easter" we get to celebrate before Jesus comes back. Consider the amazing fulfillment of prophecy that happened when Jesus was here. Imagine what it will be like when we see him as he is! Thank Him for the wonderful salvation he created for us. Be sure your children know! Our foundational scripture is Isaiah 54?13: All your offspring shall...


Picking a Private School

We are in the middle of a series of What to Do When the Road to Reading Gets Rocky. I felt we needed to take a break for Palm Sunday and Resurrection Sunday, so we will resume and finish the series of WRR in April, with an interview from Dr. Zuccone who represents Irlen in Texas and Jennifer Sangave who is with Lindamood-Bell in Austin. These are wonderful interviews and will give the home and professional educator alike many great ideas. If these services are what is needed for your...

The next two weeks we will have interviews with good representatives to a couple of important providers. Please feel free to share other resources that you have found that have helped your children/students.


How I Teach Reading

I was asked to say something about how homeschooling moms can help children who are having trouble reading. This is my method. This is how I taught reading to my grandsons. One of them was being put back in Kindergarten for the 3rd time, during the October of his first grade year. My daughter appealed to me since she was getting nowhere with the school system. He learned in 4 hours! We worked with him in other ways and he excelled. Then, I used the same method on the second grandson who...


Mindset to Help Your Child Having Trouble Reading, Writing, doing Math, etc.

Today we begin a series on "What to do When the Road to Reading gets Rocky." The first thing to do is to be sure of your own mindset, Mama. Faith helps in that! Please! Share with moms who are beginning to encounter difficulties with their children's academics! Also home educators, especially if they are having trouble teaching their children to read, will benefit. They feel so alone. Here is help! We will lay things out in a fairly orderly way. They want to know... please tell them it is...


How Faith Works Together with Practical Effort

Just as many have tried to confuse the message of total well-being, so also, many are confused by the working together of faith and practical effort. People prefer one side or the other, but balance keeps you on the road, rather than in the ditch; on the bicycle, instead of fallen. So today we discuss how faith and practical effort come together. They come together in the though of this broadcast. They will come together as you help the children in need that you are responsible for.
