-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

We're thankful for the support HSLDA membership provides us. We'd
never homeschool without them. We highly recommend HSLDA to all
homeschoolers. - North Tonawanda, NY

I cannot imagine our homeschool journey without HSLDA's strong
leadership, protection, and guidance. God bless HSLDA!

Are you concerned about preparing your high school student to succeed
in college? Does your student want to earn college credit while still
in high school? Join HSLDA Chairman Mike Farris on Monday, June 21, @
8:00 p.m. (ET) for an "Introduction to Patrick Henry College
Preparatory Academy." Mike will give you a look inside PHC Prep, an
online academy offering high-level academic instruction designed to
foster important college skills and prepare your student for AP exams.
Come prepared with questions for the Q&A session at the end of the
presentation and discover how PHC Prep can help you give your student
a head start both academically and spiritually.

Are you looking to prepare your son or daughter for God's unique
purpose and calling?
Do you want biblical wisdom to guide your decisions? Join speaker,
family counselor, and president of Lamplighter Publishing and
Lamplighter Theatre, Mark Hamby, on Tuesday, June 22, @ 9:00 p.m.
(ET), as he draws fresh insights from the biblical story of Ehud the
Benjamite. In "A Passionate Pursuit of Excellence: Preparing for God's
Calling" Mark will unveil the unique strategy used by Ehud's parents
to prepare him to become a skilled warrior and confident leader. Learn
how you can apply the same strategy as you direct your children today!

Why are some children brought up in loving, Christian homes losing
their trust in God? What can you, as a parent, do to cultivate genuine
spiritual growth in your children? In "Don't Drop That Baton!" Denise
Mira, a pastor's wife, author, and mother of five, will tackle hard
questions raised by many parents today. Join us on Thursday, June 24,
@ 9:00 p.m. (ET) to learn how you can hand the baton of enduring faith
on to the next generation.
