Homeschooling Resources and Answers News

Beloved, I just wanted to give you this link which has been a tremendous blessing to me when creating our weekly lessons.

http://searchcreation.org

This search engine looks through creationists websites, giving you all the needed information on any given topic without needing to wade through secular websites.

Also, yesterday I missed posting Answer News show from Thursday. I’m so sorry this has happened two weeks in a row, I’m going to get the hang of this eventually!

I hope these are blessings to you all, my dear brethren! As always, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Kayliegh’s Questions – Why?

If you have little ones in your life then you already know that ‘why’ is their favorite question. I love this about Kk! She asks so many questions throughout the day, always something different, sometimes funny and sometimes very serious. I hadn’t had time to sit down and write about them up until now, so I’ve been recording them for the opportune time.

Here are a select few from the past week…

1. “Is Satan why we sin, mommy?”

Answer: No, we sin because we inherited the sin nature from Adams fall in the garden. Satan does seek to kill, steal, and destroy. He is the accuser of the brethren. (Enter the Gospel, I always try to bring it back to the Gospel)

2. “Why did God create man if He knew we would sin? Why didn’t He just make us not to sin?”

Answer: You’ve had both a robotic dog and a real puppy. You loved the real puppy, the robotic dog ended up in a draw. This is because the real puppies affections had more value, they were genuine. The robot was programmed to pretend to love you, without any actual feelings. God could have created mankind as robots, but we’re to be a gift for His Son, a bride for the Bridegroom. What kind of gift would forced love be? Jesus said if we love Him we’ll obey His commandments.

(I’ll admit this one was tough for me beloved, and if I need correction here I would greatly appreciate you pointing this out Biblically!)

3. “Why does Jesus say His body is bread, and His blood is wine? We don’t really eat Him, do we?”

Oh, out of the mouths of babes!

Answer: This is a spiritual saying, like the second birth, the new birth of a believer is spiritual. The first time I was born was physical, the second time I was born was spiritual. We have physical bread we can eat when we get hungry, and it sustains life. Without food we would all parish. Likewise, for the spiritual life we need spiritual food and drink to be sustained. That is why Christ gave Himself on the cross, so that we might not see the second death.

Just as an aside…she also asked this week how kissing the bride after marriage makes the wife pregnant. Not sure how she came to this conclusion…but she’s seven so I told her, while that’s not how a wife becomes pregnant, the way that happens is something we’d talk about when she was older. She hates this response. At what age did you, dear friends, discuss these matters with your children? What do you think of these questions and answers? Any scriptures you’d like to bring to my attention? I so appreciate you all, and pray for you daily! Be good Berean’s, beloved, and study to show yourselves approved.

Saturday Worksheets – Ants and More

#homeschooling

Hello brothers and sisters in Christ! I have the blessed pleasure of sharing with you more of Pastor Jim’s homeschooling lessons. The reason I adore these lessons is not just that they’re wonderfully educational, and gripping for younger learners, but that brother Jim uses every opportunity to bring this lesson back to the fact that God is the creator. Any lesson where I can bring things back to God is a great lesson!

Lesson 1 – Ants Living Together

Lesson 2 – Growth Stages

Lesson 3 – Ants Body Parts

Lesson 4 – Adult Ants

If you’re homeschooling older kiddos I thought this link below was pretty exciting. AiG has online courses where your youth can learn from their PhD scientists!

Unfortunately Kayliegh caught a really nasty bug this week (side effect from daddy working in the pediatric part of the hospital) so we didn’t make it very far through her copy work scriptures. She’s finally starting to feel better, so I’m sure next Saturday I’ll have plenty of scripture work to share with you all. Until then ‘Go serve your king’ just kidding…that’s not my catch phrase. Be good Berean’s, beloved brethren, and study to show yourselves approved.

Saturday Worksheets – Pillar of Fire

Currently, in our homeschooling curriculum, I’m taking Kayliegh through the Bible by focusing on the people as we go. She’s 7, so this isn’t an in-depth discussion or word study. However, what I’ve been trying to do each day is to bring out an aspect of the Gospel to her with each chapter we go through. It’s not difficult to follow that scarlet thread throughout the Old Testament, and along with learning scripture, sentence structure through the copy work, I like to add architectural lessons that match where we’re at.

Exodus 14-15-16

Exodus 14-13-14

Exodus 13-21

I hope these copy work pages are a blessing, beloved brethren, and if there’s ever a verse you’d like put together for your own lessons please don’t hesitate to ask. As always, friends, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Kayliegh’s Korner – Cutest Vlog Yet!

Every so often I like to give you an update on Kayliegh’s blog. Many of you know I was nervous about her using the Internet. It’s been a great help to her sentence structuring and typing, and the videos will certainly be a treasured memory. This one has her very first guest star!

Saturday Worksheets – Caterpillars by Pastor Jim

Beloved friends I am so very excited about sharing with you today a wonderful homeschooling lesson plan created by Pastor Jim over at The Domain for Truth.

There are four links in his series on learning about caterpillars. What I love about these lessons is that they are centered on God the Creator. They would be wonderful for any of the homeschooling families out there, or parents who want to take advantage of Christmas break to teach their little ones!

I want to say a huge thank you to our brother in Christ, Pastor Jim, for his diligence in creating these lessons. They really are an awesome resource!

Hello dear ones, and happy Saturday! It’s been a while since I was able to make some worksheets, so today I have some copy work for you. These are scriptures revolving around thankfulness, as this coming Thursday is Thanksgiving here in America.

If there’s ever a specific type of worksheet or verse that would be helpful to you, brethren, as homeschoolers, parents, or Sunday school teachers, please don’t hesitate to ask. As always, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
