The Kingdom-Driven Family

Building a Home That Serves Christ and His Kingdom

In my book, The Homeschool Life; Discovering God’s Way to Family-Based Education, I included as an appendix, an essay that struck a chord with me.  I contacted the author and requested permission to include it.  That was granted.  As one of my first episodes on the Reconstructionist Radio Network, I chose to read this essay, because …

On my way to the Farmers Market today, I was happily listening and singing along with Judy Roger’s CD Never Be Shaken, a collection of Psalms put to music.  The title song is taken from Psalm 112 and the lyrics include a list of those who will never be shaken.  It goes, Who may dwell, …

There is a temptation in the age of social media, ready internet access, and talk radio, to lose our focus when it comes to the Great Commission we have been given by the Lord. Depending on what is “trending” in cyberspace or the airwaves, we can get caught up in giving our opinion on the …

My three children have a number of years between them. Six and a half years separates my first from my second; the third one came seven and half years later. People used to comment that with the age spread, I probably would not have too many occurrences of them not getting along. Wrong! Since we …
