-> "I saved my entire membership fee with one discount"

"We've been a Liberty Mutual customer for over 12 years. We
called and asked about our HSLDA member discount and they lowered
our premium by approx $95 per year...coincidentally the same
amount as our HSLDA annual membership fee. Thought you'd want to
know!!'"

---[ How will your child make a difference? ]-------------------------

Apologia's Biblical Worldview Series: "I've never seen a better
resource than these books to prepare children to think biblically
about the world in which they are growing up. If you're homeschooling,
this series is a must-buy. If you're not homeschooling--it's still a
must-buy." --Tom Gilson, Campus Crusade for Christ
