Capable of Sustaining Liberty

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The Bible is our standard for living, not our brother or sister, not our friend or neighbor.  God’s Living Word is the center of our life, or at least it’s supposed to be the center.  Stray very far from the precepts of The Bible and it doesn’t take long for life to get out of kilter.

Judah Bible Curriculum supports The Bible, as The Master textbook.  Making The Bible the source of every aspect of education.

 

Click to read – What is the Judah Bible Curriculum? – from the website.

The author, Bill Burtness, uses the Principle Approach as the foundation for Judah Bible Curriculum.  I’m sorry to say, I wasn’t familiar with Principle Approach, as a philosophy or method, before my introduction to this curriculum.  On my own, I’ve implemented pieces and parts, but not the whole.  Principle Approach “is designed to build character in teacher and student capable of sustaining liberty.”   I’ve spent years focusing on and building Godly character, but not with one eye, so to speak, on the goal of sustaining our liberty.

This is what Mr. Burtness says, “As America has veered away from God, and increased in dependence on the state, while becoming more chaotic, the critical need is to educate a generation of Christians who are intelligent based in Truth, self-taught not media taught, and self-governed under God not dependent on state control.  With the Judah Bible Curriculum, your children will be studying The Bible, not just studying about The Bible.”  Personally, I can wholeheartedly embrace this.

Judah Bible Curriculum is time intensive.  It involves preparation for the parent/teacher, as student AND then as the teacher.  JBC gives you the tools, to learn to teach, on 8 MP3 downloads.  I was overwhelmed, at times.  I’ve taught Bible for years, and some days felt like I didn’t know anything.

Written for all students, K-12, the lessons, themselves, are not difficult.  Though, the program is set up for 5 days of study per week, it is flexible.  Following the design, you learn and teach The Old Testament the first semester, and The New Testament the second semester.  The Bible is divided into five, chronological, time periods –

  1. Creation
  2. The Plan of Redemption Begins
  3. Kingdom of Israel
  4. Kingdom of God
  5. Early Church

Throughout the study you’re asking:  Where do you see the hand of God?  Where do you see the character of God? and Where does the Key (individual, event, institution, or document) belong in His purpose? The student is taught to research, reason, and apply. It is a methodical, step by step, precept upon precept, process of study.

We use the Judah Bible Curriculum as a family Bible study.  We start each lesson with prayer, then read the selected verses from Scripture.  Discussion flows through note taking, utilizing the Key Notes that are supplied.  I might add drawing, map reading, coloring pages, dictionary or concordance work, and additional reading, as a supplement to the lesson, according to the needs of each of my children.  But, I also have the freedom to not add anything, and move on to the next lesson.

The design of the curriculum focuses repeatedly on the main themes, adding different details over the years and expanding with the age or knowledge of the student.  I set the pace for my family.

“The resulting character we are striving to produce in ourselves and our students will be capable of sustaining freedom without anarchy, order without tyranny, peace and prosperity.”  “We should be totally and internally governed by His Word.”

Maintaining Biblical Standards

Posted by: | Comments (2)

I don’t read every book that my older children read, now.  When they were younger I did.  Still, I am mindful of what they’re reading, what music they’re listening to, what movies they’re watching, and who their friends are.  I know their friends by name.  I trust my children, at this age, to make wise choices, following the standards we’ve set, in their reading material, music, viewing habits, and relationships.  They also keep themselves accountable.  I can pick up the current book they’re reading, borrow their MP3 player at any time, go to the movies with them, or sit in on one of their gatherings. 

There are organizations, and companies that assist me, as a parent, in maintaining the Biblical standards that my husband and I set for our family.  They’ve put the time and effort into watching, listening, or reading, and reviewing for me.  Many of these are run by other parents, with similar standards, like Progeny Press.

 

 

 

Progeny Press was started in 1992, and is still family owned and operated.  They present good literature, teaching good literary analysis, measuring all things in the light of Scripture.  There are now more than 100 Study Guides available to instruct writers and readers in grades K – 12.

 

Study Guides can be found for Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary, Middle School, and High School.

They can be purchased Book-bound, PDF on CD, or email with attached PDF file.  The content is the same, no matter the form of delivery.

From $10.99 single guide to $27.99 book/CD set.

I have students using the Middle School Study Guide for The Cay, by Theodore Taylor –

“Eleven-year-old Phillip lives with his parents on an island off the coast of Venezuela in 1942, but when the Nazi’s begin torpedoing ships nearby, Phillip’s mother insists that he and she return to the United States. Their ship is torpedoed by a Nazi submarine long before they reach the U.S., however, and Phillip finds himself marooned on an island with an old, but strong, black deckhand named Timothy. But when Phillip goes blind from an injury, he slowly realizes how caring, wise, and resourceful Timothy really is, and the color of their skins is unimportant.”

AND other students using the High School Study Guide for The Screwtape Letters, by C. S. Lewis –

“Screwtape, an undersecretary in the Lowerarchy of Hell, has undertaken the guidance and tutelage of his nephew Wormwood, who has been assigned a human patient to secure for eternity. In a series of letters, Screwtape guides the young demon through the finer points of temptation, the weaknesses and foibles of human beings, and the disaster of his patient becoming a Christian. Though this certainly complicates things, the two infernal beings won’t let it stop them.

From this very skewed perspective, C. S. Lewis digs into the human nature, revealing some interesting, and sometimes embarrassing, tendencies. Touching on everything from sleeplessness to the “absurdity” of God’s love for humanity, Screwtape imparts his wicked wisdom to Wormwood. Though the mirror he holds up to humanity is warped and cracked, it is still painfully revealing. Wit and parody mask a very serious analysis of what makes humans tick; and though it may make readers smile, it will also make us squirm as Screwtape picks at the cracks in our facades.”

With each Study Guide, students need access to a good dictionary, a thesaurus, a Bible, and the internet or an encyclopedia.

It is suggested that the complete novel be read first.  We didn’t know how we felt about this, as opposed to reading the book and the guide together from the beginning, but it actually makes the use of the Study Guide a little easier.  I imagine the creators of the guides already knew this.  After reading the story, the student works through the guide with the book as a constant reference.

Prereading activities are offered –

  • Written report
  • Map work
  • Time line
  • Vocabulary
  • Art work
  • Biography

 

Each Study Guide covers relative information

  • Story Synopsis
  • About the Author
  • Background/Setting

 

Did I mention that Progeny Press Study Guides for Literature are interactive for 4th – 12th grade?  They can still be printed, if you like, but the student has the capability of placing answers directly on the PC and saving his work as he progresses.  The parent/teacher is able to grade the work in the same  manner, on the PC, and leave notes or comments.  My children love it!  Especially, my son, who would rather do nearly anything instead of writing.  The Study Guides are designed so he can clearly work through the questions and vocabulary, give his attention to critical analysis, dig deeper and consider the issues portrayed in the story, while viewing each through a consistent Biblical standard.  In his case, he can give complete answers, because his biggest obstacle is removed – he’s released from hand-writing and has the option to type.  Amazing!

 

 

Optional activities include –

  • Presentations
  • Volunteer work
  • Essays
  • Research
  • Interviews
  • Brief report
  • Word search

 

Final essays are provided and post reading activities are discretionary.  High School credits are obtained 1/4 credit per Study Guide in 8 – 12 weeks.

 

(4) Completed Study Guides = (1) H.S. Credit

What Will Your Child Believe?

Posted by: | Comments (3)

From the time our children are born we teach them that they are fearfully and wonderfully made.  They grow knowing it, because they hear it often.  When they’re a little older, they’re often amazed the first time we share The Scripture, from Psalm 139:13-16, with them, because they realize it’s not just momma and daddy, being momma & daddy and saying they are wonderful and unique, God said it.

“For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.”

The Bible is our touchstone.  It is the measure by which the validity or merit of something can be evaluated.  We view knowledge through The Bible.  We believe it is the ultimate authority.  We desire to live by faith in Christ Jesus and anchor our world-view in Him.

As our children become preteens and teenagers we challenge them to apply themselves to know why they believe what they believe.  Yes, we want them to know The Truth, and to believe it, but it will not hold them fast if they don’t own it themselves.  If you don’t know why you are waiting to have sex until after you’re married, inevitably you’ll find yourself in a situation of compromise.  If you don’t know why you think a baby is a baby before it’s earthside, abortion is a possibility.  If you don’t know why you believe in Jesus Christ as The Way, The Truth, and The Life, someone may come along and give you a good enough reason to think He isn’t.

What will my children believe when they stand on their own?  What will your child believe when he’s 15?

Who Am I, And What Am I Doing Here?, by Apologia, gives you foundational truths to teach your children.  You’ll know what they believe, and they’ll know why they believe it.

Written for ages 6-14; “based on the Biblical Christian worldview, which affirms that truth is absolute and knowable through the revelation of God.  It affirms that knowledge of God is the beginning of wisdom and the key to understanding the world around us.”  $39.

The Heavens Declare!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Covering Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Physiology and Earth Science, has left little time to really get into Astronomy – the scientific study of the individual celestial bodies and of the universe as a whole.  I know there’s a Biblical purpose for which the Sun, Moon and Stars were created, “…to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years.” Genesis 1:14

In Junior High School I did an illustrated report on constellations.  I took over the huge bulletin board in the back of the classroom, used thumb tacks and white string, on a black background, and mapped the stars in our night sky.  My report briefly touched on names, history and origin.  I’ve enjoyed the Moon and Stars countless times since then, but I have not counted their worth.

Psalm 19:1-2 says, “The Heavens declare the glory of God; the sky displays His handiwork.  Day after day it speaks out; night after night it reveals His greatness.”  Based on this verse alone, there is so much more than warmth from the Sun, and pretty lights in the sky at night.  I want my children to be able to recognize God’s handiwork, and intelligently acknowledge His greatness.  We need to learn how to observe the sky.

“It is said that every home in early America owned a (Holy) Bible, a copy of [John Bunyan’s] Pilgrim’s Progress, and the current annual astronomical almanack,” writes Jay Ryan, author of The Classical Astronomy.

In his Celestial Almanack, February, 2012, Vol. 1, Number 2  you’ll find:

an Astronomical Calendar

Signs of the Seasons

* The Sun’s Declination

Seasonal Skies – Evening

*The Great Constellation Orion

*The N, E, and W Horizons

Dance of the Planets

*Jupiter and Venus Approach

*The Motion of Jupiter and Venus

*Superior Planets – Mars, Saturn

We love Jay’s style of teaching!

Blessings,

Penny

The World’s Greatest Stories

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I believe in God.  I believe He actually came to earth, in the flesh as Jesus Christ, because He loved each of us so much.  I believe in The Bible, as the inspired, inerrant Word of God.  I believe it is the world’s greatest book and the more we read it and hear it, the better chance we have of applying it to our daily life.

The World’s Greatest Stories are quoted directly, word for word, from The Bible, and narrated by master storyteller, George W. Sarris.  These stories are true to the words of Scripture and they are dynamically, vocally illustrated by Mr. Sarris.  He captivates your attention, while The Word of God is being spoken into your Spirit!

 

Currently, there are six volumes available, in CD format:

  1. The Prophets
  2. The Life of Christ
  3. Beginnings
  4. Joshua and Esther
  5. Joseph and His Brothers
  6. Defeating Giants

 

23 stories covered in approximately 6 hours of audio!  Each CD is $7.95, and is available in the King James Version (KJV) and the New International Version (NIV) of The Bible.  The investment is minimal, especially in light of the eternal value.

A New Day!

Posted by: | Comments (2)

I proclaim –

“I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes it’s boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt his name together!”
Psalm 34:1-3

Thankful for a new week ahead.    I’m tired of compromise and mediocrity.  It’s taken me longer to reach this limit than it should have.  Nasty things, these two!  “Forgive me, Lord, my heart cries, and set my feet on higher ground.”

 

com·pro·mise:  an endangering, especially of reputation; exposure to danger, suspicion, etc.:  a compromise of one’s integrity or beliefs.

 

“God’s Word will never pass away, but looking back to the Old Testament and since the time of Christ, with tears we must say that because of lack of fortitude and faithfulness on the part of God’s people, God’s Word has many times been allowed to be bent, to conform to the surrounding, passing, changing culture of that moment rather than to stand as the inerrant Word of God judging the form of the world spirit and the surrounding culture of that moment. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, may our children and grandchildren not say that such can be said about us. ”   ~ Francis A. Schaeffer,  The Shelter

 

me·di·oc·ri·ty:  “a middling condition,” a middle state, moderate.

 

“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot.    I wish you were one or the other!   So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I will spit you out of my mouth.”  ~ Revelation 3:15-16

 

I’ll let you know how my follow-through goes on my proclamation.  Wish me well.  I covet your prayers.

 

Blessings,

Filling the Well

Posted by: | Comments (13)

I have a true story to share with you and what better place than here, on my blog, on the internet, where it will surely reach millions!  =)

Last week my children and I went camping on the lake.  The grandchildren were invited as an end-of-summer event.  We have been waiting for a break in the rainy weather but my window of opportunity was quickly closing with the end of July looming.  The forecast was for sunny skies; so, I planned to pick up the grands in the afternoon, while the final touches were put on the camp.

Over the last few years, we’ve developed a system for camping that actually works!  Simply:  I orchestrate; direct a lot and plan & pack for meals, my girls do most of the home work, getting clothes packed, bedding organized, etc.  My boys go to the designated campsite and start putting up the tents.  The idea is to have the tents up, supplies on site and then deliver the campers.  Smooth and easy.

So… I sent the boys down early with the tents.  Cell phones now make this job (orchestration) even easier.  I can sort of be in more than one place at a time.  I called after a while and found out that things were going well and two of the smaller tents were already up.  Things were going well at home, also, and we were all so excited to spend this time together.  Some time passed and I got a call about our big tent.  The tent.

After several years, we bought a new family-size tent just last year.  It’s the tent that I sleep in with my two youngest children and three or four young grandchildren.  I know exactly where they are each night and how they’re sleeping.  Too hot in this scorching summer, too cold in our unseasonably freezing fall (last year), giggling and telling stories way past lights out, rolled atop each other, etc.   I sing louder than the crickets and tree frogs, until the last one falls asleep,  zip tent flaps, move kids back into sleeping bags and generally watch through the night, even when my eyes are closed.  lol  This is an important tent.

My older son called to say that because they didn’t remember the specifics of putting this tent up and couldn’t seem to put their hand on a diagram, there was too much stress on one of the main poles and it broke.  “Don’t stress,” he says,  (I wasn’t), and he assures me that he isn’t, either.  They’re going to leave it alone for a time and concentrate on getting the other tents put together.  My response, “I’m not worried; not stressed, but…we must have this tent.  I need this tent.  This is not cool.  I don’t want to come up with a plan B; I am more than comfortable with plan A.  Okay, it’ll be fine.  We’ll think of something.  Call me in a little while.”  I remember thinking, “It’s a fairly new tent, right.  I bet we can order a replacement piece, but that’s not going to help now.  I wonder how long it will take to get it?  Maybe they can overnight it?  Wonder how much that will cost?”

Let me pause here, to tell you that this isn’t really a story.  It is a testimony.  If you’re already here, reading now, this post is for YOU.  Read on.  Don’t miss what God has for you.  It will be a deposit into your personal well of God’s faithfulness.  You will draw on it when you need it.  You’ll be able to tell others and it will be added to their wellI do not believe in coincidence.  I believe in the power of prayer and I believe in God.

We kept at our preparations and we prayed.  We asked God for help and wisdom.  I asked for peace and the ability to maintain a good attitude even if I had to change my ideas of what was best.  A couple of hours later my son called, again.  God had made a direct deposit into his well of faithfulness and he couldn’t wait to tell me what had happened!

Our youngest son had walked down to the lake’s edge to wade and explore.  The oldest decided it was a good time for a break.  They had been working, in the heat, with another brother, for several hours.  He walked from the campsite, across the shore and directly into the water, about 10 feet.  The bottom is sort of gooshy and it tends to make the water a murky, muddied-orange, until you reach some depth and the volume of water washes it out.   Just to his right, lying 2 feet under the surface, on a lake bottom he could still clearly see, was something shiny.  He said that before he even pulled the tent pole out of the water he knew what it was.

This lake encompasses 38,000 acres of water, and nearly 700 miles of shoreline.  There are more than 1/2 a dozen campgrounds and at least 20 designated swim areas; a huge water park and numerous marinas.  Yet, within sight of our camp, at a certain moment in time (not the day before or the day after), there was a tent pole lying at the bottom of this lake and he saw it!  It was not broken or even attached to a broken piece.  The pole that broke on the tent was an end piece.  It had a specific purpose and it’s manufactured for the position it held.  Tent poles come in different lengths and diameters according to the specifics of the tent.  There are ends and middles.  The pole that was in the water is an exact replacement for the broken tent pole.  Exact.  It did not have to be modified or manipulated in any way!  It is the correct size and the specific design for its position!  The FACT is, I could not have purchased a better fitting replacement and there it was.

In our house, this is a-God-thing.  It defies reasonable explanation.  We talk about it.  Praise Him and give Him the glory.  We stand in awe that He would care about something so small and seemingly insignificant in our lives that He would take the time to change our circumstances; to impress upon our hearts that He sees us and He knows our every need, long before we know it ourselves.  We are honored that He loves us enough to build our faith and trusts us to share His Good News.  No doubt, there will come a time when the enemy will tease and torment us with the thought that God has abandoned us and we are unimportant to Him, but the enemy is a liar and this history of God’s faithfulness will be a powerful tool to defeat him.  I share it with you.

 

Our campsite and its stunning view!

 

 

“And they overcame him because of the blood of The Lamb and because of the word of their testimony…”  Revelation 12:11

“Behold, I am The Lord, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?”  Jeremiah 32:27

“Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”  Hebrews 12:2

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.”  2 Corinthians 5:7

“…as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.”   Romans 12:3

I don’t have nearly all of the answers to my own questions, let alone yours.  I don’t know why children starve or are abused.  I don’t know why those that seem so good, die so young.  I don’t know why earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis, fire and floods are allowed to destroy lives.  I.do.not.know.

What I do know is this ~  God knows and we can put our trust fully in Him.  He loves us, He is faithful and He keeps His promises.

“Yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving Glory to God, and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform.”  Romans 4:20-21

“Why are you in despair, O my soul?  And why have you become disturbed within me?  Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God.”  Psalm 42:11

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.  Selah… The Lord of Hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold.  Selah.”  Psalm 46:1-3; 7

“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:19

“Casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.”  1 Peter 5:7

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Don’t give into the temptation of dwelling on your circumstances.  Look to God, where your help comes from.  Nearly 90 years ago, Helen Lemmel penned these words:

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.”

Blessings,
