You Can Homeschool All Ages Together!

One of the beautiful things about homeschooling is that we can teach all of our children together. That’s called age integration.

Total Access to Worship

We serve a wonderful God! We are so blessed to be able to do this. He is Great! The Psalmist can sometimes overwhelm us with his expressions of admiration and appreciation of our Lord.

Let's get healthy God's way!!

More importantly I do it because it strengthens my body so that I can stand and worship Jesus for and hour at church while playing the bass every week.
