Why We Homeschool Our Kids

3 Reasons Why You Should Consider it Too

Educating your child is the most important job you have as a parent. There are many ways to educate a child.

Correcting Feet and Correcting Subluxations

The dictionary definition even states that faith is the firm belief in something for which there is no proof. That is neither accurate, nor fair.

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.
