-> Remember the last time you wrote a term paper?

Research can be grueling-digging through archives, wading through
articles, conducting interviews. But if it's related to
homeschooling, you can relax a little. There's a good chance that
you'll find what you're looking for in HSLDA's bimonthly
Home School Court Report. Providing in-depth, insightful articles
on much of what affects the world of homeschoolers, the
Court Report is a must-read for the serious homeschooler. This
publication is provided free to each HSLDA member.

"Last Ounce of Courage" follows the life of a father, son, and

4. Plan for 2013 Academics Now

It's not too early to think about signing up for PHC Prep Academy's
one-semester spring courses. AP Macroeconomics and AP U.S. Government
and Politics both begin in January. If you have a high school junior
or senior, PHC Prep online is a great way to provide these required
courses--and strengthen your teen's Christian worldview. Courses are
designed by Patrick Henry College professors and Christian leaders who
care about the development of your teen's faith--and academic success.

9. "Home School Heartbeat": God's Good Design in Disability

"I don't like weakness, but every day I am reminded of how weak I am.
I can't take my own shower, or make quick decisions; I need my
parents' help to even put my thoughts together, for an interview like
this. But I love what God has done in my life because of it."--Krista
Horning
