The Homeschool Awakening is in theaters June 13 and 14 only

Grab the family or just your significant other and head to the theaters July 13 and 14! Kirk Cameron presents The Homeschool Awakening. With the pandemic that shut down schools, families got a taste of teaching from home. The difference between distance learning and homeschooling, as described in this presentation, is that distance learning is still public school structured – their curriculum and schedule only logging in by a certain time to begin the day. Homeschooling is 100% controlled by parents- parents choose the curriculum, schedule and routine.

There are many benefits to public schools, especially for households with parents who work out of the home full time. However, you can still work and homeschool…it is very possible. But, there are so many questions around homeschooling. Do they socialize? Can they get into colleges? What about skills or even scholarships? Homeschooling has zero effect on any of these. In fact, you can give them some fantastic social interaction opportunities.

I work at our local high school and value our teachers and admin and my son enjoys school and the clubs and sports offered. Since we came back after Covid we have many families who teach at home and those kids are on the sports teams and at events. This is going to be such a great film for those on the fence. For kids who are struggling in a classroom or school campus and for those who’s kids or teens spend more time in discipline meetings rather than in the classroom, these kids might need a different way to learn. This is for those families. It is also for families who want to spend more time with their kids and grow with them. You can teach what you want in the guidelines of learning. You can add worship and co-op opportunities. Connecting with other homeschool families is very common and these kids are thriving. There is another way and you learn so much watching The Homeschool Awakening.

All of the answers to your homeschool questions and resources are in the Homeschool Awakening website here!

Going Home Episode 2: The Cards You’re Dealt Pure Flix Subscription Giveaway

Many thanks to Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Going Home Episode 2: The Cards You're Dealt and Pure Flix Giveaway

New on Pure Flix is the series, Going Home. Episodes 1 and 2 are available to watch and I just completed Episode 2, The Cards You’re Dealt. When you have a life partner and you have time to prepare for death, you would think it can become easier. Vance and Betty seemed to arrive at Sunset House hospice prepared for the end of Betty’s life.

In this couple’s life they had fun stories of travel, but you learn they never had children. After multiple miscarriages it was determined Betty could never carry a baby to term and they went on through life as just husband and wife. Betty is so light-hearted and uses humor to get through her illness, but no one is immune to painful memories no matter how long ago.

After sitting on death’s doorstep for some time, she seems to look back on life and feel so much. At the same time, she wants to look ahead at what life can be for Vance without her. He is not in the right health himself and that worries her. You immediately feel a sense of selflessness in Betty.

As the episode comes to an end, she longs to hold those babies in heaven again, she needed help finding after-care for Vance and Nurse Charley (Cynthia Geary) is there to help them cross her last journey. Hospice care is truly Nurse Charley’s calling after her experience of being with her Grandmother during her passing many years ago. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. – 2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV)

Going Home follows an inspiring team of nurses who help guide patients and loved ones on the ultimate journey – one of transition from this world to their forever home.

Sons of Thunder

Sons of Thunder: Redemption Episode 2 Recap!

If you missed my original post introducing Sons of Thunder: Redemption on Pure Flix, read the post again here!

Episode 2, To Save Gibson Ranch, is special and I do not like to give spoilers so I will only share about this episode as each one is it’s own unique story.

In To Save Gibson Ranch, the Gibson family decides to hold a fundraising Rodeo so raise funds to help save their Ranch. In this episode there we are reminded that God always has a plan and his timing is everything. Add in those who may still be stuck in the past and must be comfortable asking for help. Personally, I am horrible at asking for help!

In this episode, we are reminded from God: My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. – James 1:19 (NIV)
