-> 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.

HSLDA proudly announces a new member benefit unavailable elsewhere.
The Creation Museum is now offering general admission discounts to

educational trip this summer to consider taking advantage of this
unprecedented offer--especially those looking to strengthen their
children's biblical worldview. Look for details on our PerX member
discount program webpages. Meanwhile, to receive the discount, simply
show your HSLDA member card when you visit the Creation Museum and you
will save $5 on the price of general admission for each member of your
family.

7. 'Home School Heartbeat': Interview with Dr. John Warwick Montgomery

How do Christians approach human rights? And where do these rights
come from? On this week's "Home School Heartbeat," noted apologist and
lawyer Dr. John Warwick Montgomery explains why it's so easy to get
human rights wrong and the importance of getting them right--for you,
for your children, and for the future of religious liberty.
