This is the time of year that our hearts turn towards home and family.
As you busily prepare for the holidays, do not neglect those who are

ideas on ways to impact your "neighbor," read one of the HSLDA High
School newsletters, "It's More Blessed to Give Than To Receive."

6. Faith Foundations for College--17 Days Left to Enroll

they have no idea how the Bible applies to their field or professional
interests" ("Top Trends of 2011," Barna Group). Does your son or
daughter know why the Christian faith matters in the study of
economics, literature, physics, or government, or in his or her future
career? Learn how a course with PHC Prep Academy can strengthen your
student's faith foundations in high school.
