cps

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love Joy Feminism and the blog Homeschoolers AnonymousI recently came upon something posted on HSLDA’s site some years ago that I found interesting, in light of what I have written about HSLDA in the past.

hand

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Way ForwardEvangelical Christians believe that their God is the giver and taker of life and that he controls the universe. As the old song goes, he’s got the whole world in his hands. Everything that happens in their life is according to the purpose and plan of their God.
