Entrusted with Arrows: Entrepreneurial Homeschool Fathers (DVD) Review by Amy M. O'Quinn

931 Woodside Lane
Airdrie, AB T4B 2K2

More and more families are realizing that decisions they make now, while their children are at home, will make a big difference in their lives for years to come. Fathers, especially, are feeling the burden and responsibility to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord and direct their loved ones back to God's design for the family unit. A growing number of Christians are choosing to homeschool, and quite a few are taking steps to create home-based businesses in order for the father to be able to spend more time with his family, assist with the educational aspect, and impart wisdom and Christian values to his children.

MovieMakers, a company based in Canada and started by father/son team Dallas and Greg Lammiman, has created a DVD that features several fathers who have embraced the home education/entrepreneurial lifestyle and now share their personal stories. According to the MovieMakers website:

Entrusted With Arrows: Entrepreneurial Homeschool Fathers highlights the efforts of a few Christian men who take extreme measures to directly train up their children in the way they should go. They do this by not only educating them at home, but by developing businesses which allow them to be with their children on a regular basis, living side by side with them, following the commands of Deuteronomy 6.

The 59-minute documentary sells for $19.99 on the website. You can find more information about this DVD and a trailer at

Although I didn't agree with all the theological points presented in the video, I found it to be informative and well-made. I thought the practical advice about business and the entrepreneurial lifestyle was excellent--especially the part about not going into debt to start a home-based business. And the fathers featured in Entrusted with Arrows are excellent examples of men who take their God-given roles very seriously. They obviously love their wives and children and want to make a difference in the lives of their families!
