David and Shirley Quine
Homeschooling pioneers David and Shirley Quine bring a wealth of experience to encourage those just starting out in the 21st century. The Quines began teaching their children at home in 1980 in Richardson, Texas.
Because curriculum was not readily available to homeschoolers in the early 1980’s, David wrote activities for his wife to use with their children. In 1984, they founded Cornerstone Curriculum. “From the very beginning,” explains David, “it was my objective to help parents teach their children to reason from a biblical world view. There is no higher calling for a mom and no greater responsibility for a dad.”
The Quines have authored many popular worldview curricula and are national speakers. They have nine children ranging in age from 33 to 17 years old.

Teaching History from a Biblical Worldview
Do you remember history in school as just a jumble of dates and unrelated facts? Or was it the story of God's redemption of the world? Some instructors are inadvertently teaching the philosophy of naturalism or deism through history. How can you teach history in such a way that your children will see the hand of God in and through it all? Join David Quine as he gives practical suggestions for teaching our children the Christian view of history.
