Home School Digest
- The Quarterly Journal For Family Discipleship.
Encouraging and Strengthening
homeschool families for nearly 20 years!
In the HOME
SCHOOL DIGEST, you'll find practical tips, simple homeschooling
suggestions and bold biblical challenges that make up an open forum for
wrestling through the complex issues that affect homeschooling families.
We pray that the broad, yet uncompromising approach you'll find in the
HOME SCHOOL DIGEST will strengthen, encourage and equip you in your
journey of homeschooling, raising Godly children, and walking closer
with Jesus Christ. We strive to cover a wide range of homeschooling
issues and then to provide Biblical perspective so that you, the reader,
will be better equipped to "give an account for the faith that lies
within you" regarding your stand as Christian homeschool parents.
As homeschoolers ourselves, we know that there will be "down days" when
discouragement threatens to defeat you and you wonder if homeschooling
is really worth it ~ so we look for articles that will encourage you to
"be not weary of well-doing." Some days it will be "Back to the old
drawing board," so we try to keep you from running out of practical new
ideas on home education methods. Sometimes you will feel completely
alone in the struggles you face, which is why we print stories by and
about other homeschooling families ~ maybe even a homeschooling family
from your own neck of the woods! We know that not everyone you meet will
be patting you on the back and singing your praises because you've
chosen to teach your children at home, so we try to remind you in every
issue of the HOME SCHOOL DIGEST that your calling comes from God and He
is the only One whose "well done" really counts!
Some have asked why we don't publish a "statement of faith." When we
stand before our Lord, the reckoning will be an individual one. We
publish the HOME SCHOOL DIGEST with the firm belief that you need to
know and be ready to give an account for what you believe.
Our purpose here at Wisdom's Gate and the HOME SCHOOL DIGEST, is to
publish a wide range of thought regarding the entire spectrum of
homeschooling issues and then to provide Biblical perspective so that
you, the reader, will be better equipped to "give an account for the
faith that lies within you" regarding your stand as Christian
If a printed statement is in order, I offer you this "statement of
purpose": We are daily being poured out in the Name of our Lord Jesus on
your behalf, through our publications as well as face to face, and
through fervent prayer, so that you might stand firm in the knowledge of
your faith in the One Who has called you to this holy vocation. We are
intensely committed to serving you, and look forward to hearing your
testimonies and fellowshipping with you throughout eternity.
