Packed with fabulous articles and resources, the winter 2008/2009 issue will encourage and equip you to homeschool with excellence. This issue’s highlights include the classical approach to education, teaching grammar and math, homeschool convention information, another fabulous freebie directory, and an introduction to our money-saving friend, Molly Green! Plus, Deborah Wuehler is contributing part two of one of her all-time most popular articles, “Homeschooling the Rebel”! You’re in for a blessing!

- Why is homeschooling gaining momentum in Israel, even though their compulsory education law requires families to send their children to school? How has a lack of homeschooling resources influenced the homeschooling choices made by Israeli families? How is the choice to home educate motivating parents to change their lifestyles and make sacrifices as they establish new priorities for their families? Terri Johnson answers these questions in this excellent article about life among God’s chosen people.

- You can’t just tell your children that evolution is not true and leave it at that. This does not prepare them for today’s world, where most people practically worship science as being the best source of truth. Ruth Beechick explains.
- If God is a God of order rather than chaos, why then would irrational numbers, non-ending, non-repeating decimals, exist to imply the latter? Chris Howard tackles this question in his article “Mathematics, Order, Harmony, and Faith”.
- Do your students suffer from “math anxiety”? Jason Gibson, a homeschooling father, offers solutions to help you break down unwanted barriers.

Which would make a good read-aloud? Which book masterfully summarizes the cultural, political, and spiritual forces that helped shape him?
