“If you wonder what your kids ought to be studying, take a look at this book. It will give you some great ideas for guiding them, and for preparing them while still at home. Is college the best option? What's the return on investment for a college education in various fields? I'm so glad it arrived the day it did. In short, I think this book is something all parents need to read.”

IS HOMESCHOOLING STRESSING YOU OUT? Do you wonder whether your children are learning the right things? Does it seem like the longer you homeschool, the harder it gets? Do you sometimes ask yourself how other moms homeschool their children, keep their houses running smoothly and still hang onto their sanity? IF YOU ANSWERED “YES” TO ANY OF THOSE QUESTIONS, JOIN THE CLUB. During over twenty years of homeschooling my children, there were times when I became so overwhelmed that I almost gave up. Getting through those tough times taught me strategies for making homeschooling easier. The habits I established and the mindset I developed turned me into a “homeschooler for the long run.” I am so glad I never gave up on homeschooling! I want to encourage you to hang in there, too. That’s why I want to share my strategies with you.  Barbara Frank  More...

How can we as parents prepare our children for success in this growing maelstrom that many are now calling “the new normal”?

In Thriving in the 21st Century, Barbara Frank demonstrates that we must move beyond the common wisdom of the 20th century that emphasized a college diploma and lifelong employment with a large company as the only way to success. Instead, we need to set our children on a new path, one that will help them not just survive, but thrive in the 21st century. More...

“Have you ever picked up a book just because you were so intrigued by its premise or plot? Something on its cover called to you, piquing your curiosity...If looking for a new way to look at Christ’s life and the effect it should have on our lives, this is a good option. It’s quite thought provoking, and does a good job highlighting Jesus’ life and the need for His coming and death, our salvation.”
