providing you with immediate step-by-step guidance?

---[ New book: "The God Imperative" ]---------------------------------

Many parents homeschool to pass on their faith to their children. But
if today's leading atheists have their way, religious education--at
home or elsewhere--will no longer be tolerated. In his new book, The
God Imperative, author Dave Dentel reveals the perils presented by
this rising movement--and how truth can defeat it. Learn more about
this just-published book at the link below!

1. Oppose Federal Attack on Conscience Protections

Only a few days remain for those who wish to comment regarding federal
health care regulations that violate religious liberty. We believe
that a loss of conscience protections can lead to loss of freedom in
other areas.
