The best way to light
our world is to be distinct from the darkness, and homeschooling certainly helps to set us apart
from the worldly culture in which we live. I have had more opportunities
to share the gospel because I was homeschooled than I ever would have
had in a public school."

Homeschooling from a Biblical Worldview

way to fulfill the Biblical mandate to raise our children in
the nurture and admonition of the Lord is to homeschool in the current culture."

best gift we can give our children, is a complete Godly
upbringing in a loving home, safe from the worldly
influences that lure them away from faith in Jesus.
Homeschool your preschoolers, homeschool all the years."
just wanted to let you know your site brought tears to my eyes.
I am new to homeschooling and did not do it by choice. God
made sure I had no other alternative (talk about closing doors)
and I was not happy about it until I started doing it. I
had been praying for God to make his purpose for me known and
after a lot of prayer I knew I was meant to be a mother, but
that was not all God had in mind. Once I started
homeschooling I knew this was my purpose. I LOVE IT!
I went from being against homeschooling to being a huge advocate! I have
seen such positive changes in my kindergartener since she came
home. It took 3 months to flush out what 3 weeks of public
school had done to her! We both LOVE it and she actually
dreads the weekends! Anyway I was moved by your site as it
expressed everything I feel inside. Homeschooling is such
a blessing and so important! Thanks for your hard work in
providing this site." Geneva B.

Will your children believe in Jesus
when they graduate from high school?
Public Schooled: 15%
94% of homeschoolers keep the faith and 93% continue to attend church
after the high school years. But a shocking 75% to 85% of Christian
children sent to public school drop out of church, and do not hold a
Christian worldview after high school graduation.
By grade eight, the average homeschooled student performs four grade
levels above their public and private school counterparts.
A background in teaching is not necessary; in fact, "home educated
students' test scores remained between the 80th and 90th percentiles,
whether their mothers had a college degree or did not complete high
What does God say about education?
Homeschooling is the most Biblical form of education.
God addresses parents as the educators of
their own children:
"And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them
when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down,
and when you rise up."
- Deuteronomy 6:6-7
"All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be
the peace of your children."
- Isaiah 54:13
"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will
not depart from it."
- Proverbs 22:6
Jesus said: "Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both
fall into a pit? A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is
fully trained will be like his teacher."
- Luke 6:39, 40
"Learn not the way of the heathen."
- Jeremiah 10:2
"He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools
- Proverbs 13:20

Tools for Cultivating Your Child's Potential, reported that new research
reveals 92% of children from Christian homes will reject
Zan writes, "I spoke this winter at
Sally Clarkson's WholeHearted Mother Conference in
Dallas on "Seven Tools for
Cultivating Your Child's Potential." As I discussed tool
number four (Developing a Christian Worldview), I gave some
of these same startling statistics. One mother sought me out
after the workshop and informed me that her husband works
for Josh McDowell Ministry. She said the statistic they are
now using for evangelical children (actually teens and young
adults) abandoning the faith is 92 percent. 92 percent! That
Did you know the latest study by Dr.
Brian Ray discovered 94% of children educated at home will
keep their faith in Jesus?
85% of children from Christian homes
that attend public schools for 12 years will reject Christ
by high school graduation.
Dr. Robert Simonds of the Center for
Excellence in Education (CEE) has spent over 35 years
teaching in Public schools. He has more experience
than just about anyone. Dr. Simonds contacted parents of church children who went
K-12* in public schools (in 1990) and found that 85% of all
those children left their church and faith by 12th grade.
The Southern Baptist Council on Family Life
reported to the 2002 Annual Meeting of the Southern Baptist
Convention that 88 percent of the children raised in
evangelical homes leave church at the age of 18, never to
We acknowledge that this study took into account all forms
of education, but we know that most Baptists (80-90%) send
their kids to public schools.
We hope that this information will help you
see why we feel this message is vital. We will not change
the minds of everyone, but we know that children taught at
home with the Bible as the foundation to their
education have the best chance to not only keep their faith,
but maintain a strong Christian worldview throughout their
lifetime. For more information on the children that keep
their faith who have been homeschooled, visit
Percentages affect peoples thoughts, but it
is not about the percentages, it is about what God has said
how we should raise our children. He is not silent about a
child's education. Education is not neutral. It is
either for Christ or against.
Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for
correction, for training in righteousness". 2 Timothy 3:15
