-> Can you look at the clouds and tell the direction of the wind?

An interesting phenomenon of wind is that it can blow in multiple
directions at the same time, at different heights from the ground.
But usually there is a prevailing wind. HSLDA watches the gusts
and monitors the prevailing trends of change in the legal climate
of home education. So no matter which way the wind is blowing,
we're there to protect your family.

As Christians, it's easy to wring our hands over our families, our

about these concerns? In the final segments of an interview with
Shirley Dobson, and in an interview with author Ken Connor, Michael
Farris shows that turning our nation around is possible.
