1. Washington Times Op-ed--Christian Teens Active in Elections

5. Florida: School Officials Believe They Can Make Their Own Laws

6. 'Home School Heartbeat': Avoiding Lukewarm Relationships

Homeschooling allows parents and children a unique opportunity to
build strong family relationships. But in the busyness of day-to-day

offers parents encouragement and insight into making family
relationships a priority.
