Things you'll learn from this episode

  • The multi-generational influence and camaraderie of families being together wasn’t rare in our history and is what made us more stable as a country. There’s no substitute for all the time, the memories, and the opportunities to be the main influence in our kids’ lives that homeschooling affords.
  • Through Patriot Academy, we want students to learn to speak well, communicate well, strategize, and learn the rules so they can succeed within the system of government. They learn that we the people are the government, and each student can have an impact.
  • Our passion is restoring liberty in America. The most important thing you can do to restore liberty and save America is to spend time in God’s Word. With the Founders’ Bible you are not only in God’s Word, but you’re gaining insights into how to apply it to government, civics, education, and the family. The stories are so inspiring … filled with amazing people in our history. 
  • Freedom is God’s idea! God is the author of freedom. Jesus brought liberty for us. You can’t get to know real freedom until you get to know the author of freedom. 
  • Much of what’s happening in America today is a direct result of secularization of the idea of freedom.True freedom: “God’s best blessings are found within His boundaries.” Zig Ziglar


At BJU Press Homeschool, we’re committed to providing children an education from a biblical worldview that is academically sound and challenges them to advance, think critically, and live like Christ. This type of education is not often possible in public schools because of the number of children taught in a classroom, a difference in worldview, and peer and societal pressure to conform. Homeschooling allows parents to instruct and disciple their children without daily fighting messages from an opposing worldview taught in the classroom. And with tuition costs and fees for private schooling or tutoring, homeschooling may be the only option for parents who are concerned for their children’s physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
