Dentists and Worldview/Apologetics Training
What do dentists have to do with worldview training? Well, not too much; however, after each visit to my dentist as I prepare to pay for the treatment, they inevitably tell me what my “investment” is for the day. Such an appropriate term!

An “investment” is how I encourage parents of youth to consider a week of their student’s time at a worldview/apologetics conference.

Homeschooling is a Journey that the Whole Family Takes Together
For the past two years, Elizabeth has partnered with us to plan the NLC (National Christian Home Educators Leadership Conference). In 2013, Paul and she planned an awe-inspiring leadership conference bringing in expert speakers - Joe Boot, Patrick Craine and Beverly Hallberg - and made sure that all the extra details with the hotel were all in order. For this year's conference the hotel, off-site event, and most of the speakers are booked, and a tentative schedule is set. Wow, Paul and Elizabeth have been busy! As a veteran homeschooler, Elizabeth has much knowledge to offer to both present and hopefully soon-to-be homeschoolers.
