Why teach Theology to your children?

by autumn on February 12, 2010 · 1 comment

Kind of a no-brainer to me but it wasn’t always that way.  Why teach Theology? After all isn’t that just for the seminary students? NO! Let’s look at it from the alternative: not teaching Theology. Where does that leave your children? Stumbling, bumbling, blabbering that’s where! I can freely talk this way because I was […]

Memorization Ideas

by autumn on December 13, 2009 · 2 comments

I have found that, in the homeschool setting, memorization is the most effective tool I have for teaching my children discipline.  Memorization is never effortless.  Even for someone who is highly gifted in that skill. I am good at memorizing but I have to put in work before I am able to recite it.  Now […]

Teaching Greek as part of our homeschool schedule has been such a blessing to our family.  Before we began, we first had to choose which curricula was going to best fit our goals. Most Greek curricula will work for your family if you have a desire to travel to Greece and be able to converse […]

Catechize and Memorize

by autumn on October 6, 2009 · 2 comments

Two months ago I thought that Catechism was something that just Roman Catholics did.  How saddening to think I would have gone my whole life believing this and missing out on a blessing. cat·e·chism (kt-kzm)n. 1. A book giving a brief summary of the basic principles of Christianity in question-and-answer form. 2. A manual giving […]

They Really Get It!

by autumn on September 15, 2009

Haven is playing soccer this season. On Saturday his coach asked him the name of his school (He never talks to “others” until he sees fit to do so). Haven’s response was heard clearly across the field by his very alert aka nosey sister Haley, “I’m homeschooled.” Haley quickly announced it to us and everyone […]

by autumn on September 6, 2009

Have you ever stopped and thought about 5 things that you must teach your children before they leave home? I say “must” because these 5 things will probably be so important to you that you couldn’t imagine NOT teaching them to your children.

Yummy Baked Goodies

by autumn on August 30, 2009 · 2 comments

I loooooove to bake. Not just the occasional batch of cookies. I’m talking every day- cookies, cakes, brownies, anything! I say every day but that is really my wishful thinking. My husband has limited me (meanie). He would be happy, as would his waistline, if I baked only once a week. I can usually squeeze […]

Greek, anyone?

by autumn on August 5, 2009 · 2 comments

Since June our family has been learning how to read Greek (Biblical Greek).  It has been such an amazing experience!  It’s something we ALL do together.  Yes, even the 2 year old! We do everything else together so why not Greek? When we started out we simply made notecards and memorized the symbols.  After we […]

Do You Have 2 Heads?

by autumn on July 26, 2009

2 Heads? For sure!  I mean I must if I homeschool, right? That’s certainly what many people think when you tell them you homeschool.  It’s interesting that the fact that we homeschool always comes up after they’ve raved incessantly over the local schools. Ever noticed that everyone who sends their kids to public school resides […]

(originally posted June 21, 2009 at Do I Need A Bigger Plate?) Over the past few weeks, life in the Beck house has changed dramatically. I am so humbled by God’s ever present hand in my life. For years we have known of the book Teaching the Trivium by Bluedorn. We knew of this book […]
