The Christian Roots of Canada’s History: Government Godliness
At my 45 years of age, I remember when every day at public (government-run) school the Lord’s Prayer and O Canada is what started us off. I’m not sure when that stopped, but I believe public education went downhill quickly when it did.

A Homeschooler’s Favourite Resources on History with a Christian Worldview
History is one of the topics and subjects more easily covered via homeschool than a traditional schooling model. The reason for this is that the consistency of parental teaching means consistency in the teaching of history and a Christian worldview.

An Easter Tradition Recipe and Family Time
Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The story starts on Palm Sunday with the Triumphant entrance of Jesus in Jerusalem and follows events leading to His crucifixion and burial on Good Friday.

This celebration helps Christians remember that we have eternal life with God because Jesus paid the price of our sins.
