Accidentally going out for lunch today, I realized it was Black Friday as everyone and their mother (except my mother) trampled passed me for the best deals.

Early on, our strategy was to use a literature-based curriculum and then just pile it on. We started homeschooling with Sonlight Curriculum. I supplemented using Jim Trelease Read Aloud Handbook.

Christmas is no longer a time to reflect upon the greatest Gift in creation. Rather, even for many presuppositional apologetics s, it is a time to think of one more gift for others. And for many it is a time of dread as they are shackled to more and more debt and false expectation of what love and family entails. In Christian circles this partly arises from the many false prophets who teach that God is their Santa Clause, ready to shower material blessings upon the faithful few who “sow a seed of faith” from what little savings they have. Meanwhile, others seek after God’s blessings with money they don’t even have. (Just watch the “testimonials” of the 700 Club).

We get to bring one thing into the world… we get to bring us. Yes, we are born into social strictures, with familial beliefs, and societal ideologies, but even so, somewhere deep inside, we are given a profound connection to “who we are.” Most of us haven’t spent a lot of time cultivating that connection, and getting to know us, but if we did, we’d discover a wealth of power: The power to love, the power to create, and ultimately, the power to use compassion to make the world around us a better place to live.
