Home School Foundation Report

July/August 2007

Friends of the Home School Foundation,

The Home School Foundation is in the middle of its busiest season as
homeschool families begin to prepare for the next school year. We
appreciate all your prayers as we try to help as many people as
possible and be used by the Lord to spread hope and peace of mind to
needy homeschoolers.


For you who have invested in the Foundation through your gifts and
prayers, we share the following notes from homeschooling families you
have helped.

"Thank you all for giving us the scholarship again this past year so
my family could continue homeschooing with the assurance of your
support, if needed. God has been so gracious to us allowing us to
continue teaching our two children through this difficult time as my
husband is still incarcerated. At times we have not known how we would
make it, but God always provides what we need. I praise Him for
getting us through another year! God bless you."
--Mary M.

"Thank you so much for granting our family a scholarship for our HSLDA
membership fee. It is so wonderful that we can maintain our membership
during this financially trying time. . . . Bless you and all those
that work so hard in this organization."
--Lisa C.

Contest Updates

HSLDA's homeschool contests are going through some changes, most
notably in scheduling. This fall, HSLDA will announce all four of its
contests at once, each with different submission dates. The contests
will now be held quarterly, and students will have more time to work
on their submissions. The first contest in the new schedule will be
for essays, with a November 1 deadline.

Be sure to keep checking the HSLDA contest webpage
( throughout August for more information as it
is revamped to help these contests grow and make them even more of a
learning experience for students!

The proceeds from all HSLDA's contests go to HSF's Special Needs
Children Fund ( to help
homeschooling families with the expenses of private special
educational services.
