-> Extreme makeovers are for extreme circumstances...

Most homeschools don't need an extreme makeover, but there is
something to be said for attention to detail and recognition of
accomplishments. Watch the media and you'll soon see that not
everyone wants home educators and homeschooling to look good.
HSLDA works hard to shed light on the good work of home educators
so it's obvious that we don't need someone "making-over" our
homeschools. Join HSLDA and help us show the world that we're fine
as we are . . . thank you!

4. Bless a Widow with Your Art--Deadline Approaching

Every Christmas the Home School Foundation
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=11696
sends cards to homeschooling widows it has helped. Your art or photo
could be the cover! These cards brighten the holidays for widows and
their families across the country. Submission deadline is August 1.
Entrants must be homeschool teachers or students ages 15 and up.

One widow wrote us: "As a widow, I noticed a drop in the amount of
Christmas cards that were delivered to our house that first Christmas
alone. When you lose your spouse, you also lose contact with a group
of people that were friends of your husband. Celebrating a holiday
without Dad is difficult, but receiving Christmas cards helps to
brighten the house and it helps knowing that others are thinking of
you. Thank you for making HSF's Christmas cards special."

7. "Home School Heartbeat": Preserving American Liberty

Freedom of religion is a constitutional right of the people, isn't it?
So why are academic and media elites seemingly hostile to
Christianity? Mike Farris talks to Brad O'Leary about why
homeschoolers should value and champion religious liberty, what they
can do to preserve that right and how to exercise it in homeschooling.
