Modern Science has brought about significant medical advances during our life time, with many more being studied.  While our scientific knowledge is at the highest level in history, we also realize, that so is our level of ignorance. The more we learn, the more we realize how much we don't know.  For every question answered, many more are raised. 

Today, Flu Vaccines are becoming mandatory in public schools, for hospital workers and many other places.  Often however, these people still get the flu. So why is it so critical to force everyone to take the vaccine?  They are the ones who will feel bad, so it should be their decision. If the vaccine works, then they won't infect those who do get vaccinated, so what business is it of theirs.

This is usually the time people start preaching about the poor children who get the flu and suffer because of their parents choice and the CDC Estimates that somewhere between 37 to 172 children die each year from the flu.

IF mothers loose their choice on flu vaccines, should pregnant women also loose their choice on abortion

Should it be required for women seeking abortion or on welfare having children to get sterilized so it doesn't happen again?   

How far does it go?

But we haven't gotten to the worst part yet.  What happens when everyone is taking the vaccine and it gets contaminated with something bad like AIDS, intentionally or accidentally?  

Would a radical Islamic suicide bomber contaminate our vaccine intentionally? Of course they would.

What happens when the flu vaccine mutates like in the show I am Legend? where the measles virus was used to create a cure for cancer, but mutated causing deadly & highly contagious side effects.

According to the World Health Organization, AIDS is the worst Pandemic in modern history, with over 70 million deaths.  This is far less than abortion which has claimed over 1.72 Billion.  The problem with AIDS, is that the patient can be infected for 5-10 years before they even realize they have it, while infecting others.

What would the AIDS fatalities soon become if the MANDATORY flu vaccine was contaminated for 5-10 years? NOW we are getting to the bad part when Americans begin to die from AIDS at record numbers.

But the survival rate of AIDS is improving.  So instead of AIDS, suppose the Flu Vaccine is infected with something worse, that kills people after 2-3 years when everyone would have taken it.

Americans have just become extinct to save 37 to 172 children per year. Low probability, yes, but extremely high severity. 

In a country where the citizens are supposed to be free, we should educate the public as to the benefits of vaccines AND to the risk of getting and not getting the vaccineThe risk will be shocking. We must present both sides accurately and let informed people make up their own mind.

If you have been vaccinated, and it works, why should you care?

Being exposed to common illness and developing our own natural immunity will enable us to over come disease and help our species to survive.  Granted there are things like Polio and Small Pox that may require a vaccination, but these were rare exceptions that everyone was eager to get treated for.

God Bless America, land of the free, home of the brave.  Lets keep it that way.

Homeschool 101

It's decision time! You already know that your desire is to stay at home and homeschool your kids. How do you pull everything together and actually do it?
Here is a simple step-by-step guide and checklist to assist families who are planning to homeschool. The order may vary depending on your family's circumstances. We encourage you to print this page and put a check mark as you complete each step. Homeschool 101 was born out of our nine (9) years of homeschooling experience. May this be of help to you! God Bless you in your homeschooling endeavor!

If you click on any word(s) highlighted in blue, a new browser window will open taking you to a related resource to help you accomplish that particular step. You do not have to leave this page to look at the recommended resource.


 1)   Pray for God's guidance and wisdom. Read the Bible for direction. Some passages to meditate on (below) are Deutoronomy 6:4-9, Proverbs 22:6, Ephesians 6:4 and Luke 2:52. A suggested daily reading/devotion is the book of Proverbs. There are 31 Chapters, 1 for each day of the month. Proverbs is God's instruction book for daily living, including parenting! "A proverb a day keeps the devil away!"

 2)   Husband and wife, discuss and agree together on homeschooling.

 3)   Sit down with your children and discuss your decision to homeschool.
 4)   Get your house in order. Establish routines, chores, and consistent discipline. Limit time spent on TV and computer games. Recommended parenting resources are available at Growing Families International, Focus On The Family, or DoorPosts. We highly recommend Growing Kids God's Way Parenting Class and the book For Instructions in Righteousness by DoorPosts.

5)  Get your marriage in order. The primary support for your homeschool is the husband and wife relationship. If there are unresolved issues between you and your spouse, it is more likely that your homeschool will be unstable, distracted and disorganized. Suggested resources to strengthen your marriage and family are available through Family Life and Gary Smalley. Try to go to a Family Life Marriage Conference. Also read the following books by Gary Smalley - "For Better or Best" and "If Only He Knew."

6)   Read books on homeschooling (i.e. Homeschool - The Right Choice by Christopher Klicka).   See Below for Recommended Books.
7)   Talk to experienced homeschooling families, ask lots of questions! Join homeschoolingonline message boards and forums.

8)   Investigate your local homeschooling laws. Great resource is HSLDA - Homeschool Legal DefenseAssociation or your local State Department of Education.
9)  To protect your right to homeschool, join HSLDA. Without any legal plan in place, it can cost you thousands of dollars to defend your legal rights. Bad things can happen to good people! Homeschoolers are not immune to legal troubles.
10)  Join HomeschoolSupport Groups for great ideas and support from other local homeschoolers.
12)  Research and order your curriculum materials. Check out Satellite/Correspondence Schools for full curriculum package and services. For independent curriculum and record-keeping, visit Curriculum Publishers and Suppliers. Request the most current printed catalogs available and read them.
13)  Plan your school year. Set up lesson plans and daily schedule.
14)  Set up your classroom or homeschooling corner with proper furnishing, supplies and record keeping materials.
15)  If applicable, send your Letter of Intent To Homeschool to the local public school. This letter is in accordance to your state's homeschooling laws.

16)  Lastly, praise God for all the many wonderful and memorable homeschooling days that you will spend at home with your children!

Deuteronomy 6:4-9
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Happy Children

At this point it seems the evidence is overwhelming—new studies seem to arrive on our desks each week that suggest simply spending time in green spaces can improve our health, both mentally and physically. As avid outdoors people, we instinctively know that, but it’s always nice to have science confirm our suspicions. And recently, researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark published yet another study about the outside/good health connection that may provide the most conclusive evidence yet. Getting outside, walking around, hearing the rustle of trees, feeling the wind on our face, the rain on our backs, the sun on our skin—the more we do that as kids, the happier we are as adults, their study suggests. And this was one heck of a study.
From 1985 until 2013, the researchers combed data from one million Danish residents. They looked at everything from income to educational level, history of familial mental illness, as well as how much green space surrounded where the residents had grown up. Because they had so much data to work with, the researchers were able to try and control for socioeconomic factors—kids who grow up wealthier probably have more access to green space, for example. Yet even factoring those discrepancies in, researchers found that being raised surrounded by nature as a child meant a 55 percent lower incidence of developing mental health issues as adults. Even better, it seemed that the more time children spent in nature, the better as far as mental health outcomes were concerned.
If we were talking about a new medicine that had this kind of effect the buzz would be huge—these results suggest that being able to go for a walk in the park as a kid is just as impactful.
The researchers were able to use satellite data to examine how much green space surrounded the residences of the subjects in the study. It was as simple as noting that kids who grew up in areas surrounded by more visible vegetation meant better mental health outcomes as adults. Wilderness, public parks, even urban green spaces, it didn’t seem to matter. The ramifications could be massive for future city and regional planning.
“There is increasing evidence that the natural environment plays a larger role for mental health than previously thought,” said Kristine Engemann, who led the study. “Green space seemed to have an association that was similar in strength to other known influences on mental health, like history of mental health disorders in the family, or socioeconomic status.”
What the study can’t show, however, is why this should be the case. Is it simple proximity to trees and vegetation? Or is it likely that kids who had access to more natural environments were more likely to be outside, getting excercise, perhaps doing so in groups and forming strong social bonds that they carried with themselves to adulthood? Maybe spending time in nature taught self-reliance, resilience, patience.
Or could it be that something in nature speaks to us in a way that won’t show up on a scientific study? Doctors are prescribing nature walks for patients to help with chronic physical ailments. Mountain biking groups are healing mental illness sufferers. Surfing is a very real salve for veterans with severe PTSD and physical ailments. It probably shouldn’t be so surprising that growing up in a natural environment would also have powerful health benefits.
Perhaps there’s simply a real physiological connection to being more in tune with the natural world. It’s certainly something we feel when camping, when in the middle of the sea, when scaling a mountain peak, or even when lounging next to a lake.
“If we were talking about a new medicine that had this kind of effect the buzz would be huge,” said Kelly Lambert, a neuroscientist at the University of Richmond. “But these results suggest that being able to go for a walk in the park as a kid is just as impactful.”
