Don’t Waste Your Summer
Here are nine suggestions for students to ensure you do not waste your summer.


Number Eighteen
The Duggar family has announced the impending arrival of baby number 18!


The Truth About Oil
“A recent survey on the environment found that seventy percent of people worldwide think that the planet is running out oil. Only less than one quarter believe that there is enough of it to keep it as a primary source of energy. Petro pessimism runs especially high in the United States where a full two thirds think that the point of depletion is within sight.”

This missionary shares a couple of sad stories about the love of money. “Susan would rather be a prostitute making extra money (her husband is still gainfully employed by the school so her family DOES have enough!) than a church leader and an honest-working woman. The custodian would rather be the richest man with the nicest house in his neighborhood than be a respectable, faithful, honest, hard-working provider for his family.”


Greg Harris on Educational Choices
“I can honestly say that every option, including home schooling has its problems (as you well know). So, pick your problems, and by the grace of God deal with those problems as they arise.”
