Should Christians Read Fiction?

Homeschooling, Raising Leaders, Seminars-Webinars No Comments

Today I have guest author, Janice Campbell, sharing on Christians reading fiction books.

By: Janice Campbell

I recently met someone who had been raised without fiction. No Little Golden Books, no Dr. Seuss, no Little House on the Prairie, no Chronicles of Narnia…nothing. I can’t begin to imagine, but the thought makes me feel a bit hollow inside. The reason? Fiction is “not true,” therefore it violates the admonition in Colossians 3:9– “Lie not one to another…”. What a horrifyingly incorrect notion to base an entire life upon.

The opposite of fiction is non-fiction, and the difference is not in whether they convey truth, but the method by which truth is told. Both can tell the truth, and both do (unless the writer’s goal is to do otherwise, and even then, truth usually shines through somewhere). Fiction shows the truth through story, one of the most powerful lenses available. Non-fiction relates fact, usually as a linear narrative.

Of the two methods of telling truth, story is the more powerful and memorable, because it engages the emotions. Remember King David’s reaction when the prophet Nathan related the story about the poor man’s lamb, then said, “Thou art the man!” Wow. Stories are told throughout scripture because we have been created with minds designed to receive teaching in that format.

There are so many reasons Christians need to be readers, and they’ve been ably addressed in a recent Breakpoint article, Why Should Christ-Followers Read Fiction? Defending Story by author Mary DeMuth. Please visit the link and read it, if you’ve wondered about the issue. She clearly addresses most of the major reasons we need to read.

This issue is important, so that another child won’t grow up in the impoverished environment that my recent acquaintence experienced. As an adult, she’s worked hard to make up for the lack of story in her childhood, but as she said, “I realize that I’m still missing areas of important emotional understanding that I believe I’d have developed if I’d been able to empathize with characters in a book.” When you consider that one of the characteristics many psychopaths have in common is the lack of ability to empathize, it reinforces the need for reading great literature, especially in those who are commanded to “love one another.” (John 13:34-35)

———————————————————————————————————————

Don’t forget we are having a FREE webinar with Janice tomorrow, Thursday, June 23rd. You can register here: Decoding the Classics: How To Read, Enjoy, and Teach Great Literature

———————————————————————————————————————

Janice Campbell and her husband Donald homeschooled their four sons from preschool into college. As a “graduated homeschool mom,” Janice enjoys encouraging others by sharing what she’s learned about homeschooling through high school. She is the author of Transcripts Made Easy: The Homeschooler’s Guide to High School Paperwork (now in its third edition), Get a Jump Start on College! A Practical Guide for Teens, and Excellence in Literature: Reading and Writing Through the Classics, a five-year literature curriculum for grades 8-12, as well as articles for various magazines. Her website, www.Everyday-Education.com, offers information, resources, inspiration, and a free e-newsletter.

Just in time for Summer!

“Sending Cards Has Never Been Easier!”

Do you…

  • forget to send birthday cards?
  • write thank you cards, but not mail them because you don’t have a stamp?
  • want to thank your clients & customers for their business but don’t have a system to send the cards?
  • need to send birthday gifts?
  • need to send thank you’s for graduation gifts?
  • need to thank people for the referrals they send to your business?
  • have a system to send gifts to your best clients?
  • think of family & friend during the day and want to reach out to say “I’m thinking of you”?
  • have cards in your home that are missing part of the address on the envelope?

There are so many reasons to send cards, both personal & professional reasons. Unfortunately, you don’t have a process or system to send heartfelt cards easily & quickly. You have lost the art of sending heartfelt messages in a card because you use email & texting. However, cards are the perfect solution to reaching out & touching those you love and those who help you.

On Tuesday, June 7, 2011 I will share the easiest way to send REAL cards in the REAL mail to act on your promptings each & every day. You know you should send a thank you card, tell your client how important they are to your business, let your friends & family know you are thinking of them. It is so EASY when I show you how to send cards for less than $1 each. That’s right, less than you can get at the Dollar Store.

“Sending Cards Is The

EASIEST Way To Get A


Check In The Mail


Or


Gain FREEDOM To Give Back!”

After I discuss how you can send cards for less than $1, I will show you how you can SAVE 5% on all your cards & gifts, as well as receive a commission on your friends & family’s cards. I’ll also discuss:

  • how you can get a “Mailbox Money” . . . money in your mailbox even when you are playing
  • the FREEDOM you can have with a some extra money at the end of each month
  • a 3-year plan to have your own business up & running
  • how to get a check in the mail at the end of each month
  • freedom to make your own decisions, to give back to society, to minister to others, to spend more time with your family!

Wow…I just looked at our webinar registration page and we had over 100 people register on Wednesday.  We still have a few seats, but you should go ahead and grab one so you are sure to get on tonight’s webinar.

Free Homeschool Webinar Tonight

You might have missed my past couple of emails and you’re wondering what I’m talking about.

Tonight I’m hosting our monthly FREE Homeschool Webinar.  You want to be sure and join us for the live webinar because I’ll be sharing the Top 5 Mistakes that Homeschool Families Make.

Over the past 9 years, I’ve been helping homeschool families choose their curriculum, set their homeschool goals and discover simple techniques to blend homeschooling into your everyday life.

As I’ve worked with moms, I’ve seen similar trends that I’ll be sharing tonight.  As I share each trend (or mistake), I’ll be offering solutions that I personally used as I homeschooled my kids.

I used these techniques in elementary grades, middle school and our high school homeschool.  Here’s what a homeschool mom had to say about one of my recent workshops:

———————————–
Thank you so much for making yourself available and for sharing the wonderful information and experience you have. You have a calming way about you! I hope you will continue your mission and that is, truly helping others.

Top 5 Mistakes Homeschool Families Make

Freebies, Homeschooling, Seminars-Webinars 2 Comments

Hope you has a wonderful Easter celebrating our Saviors’ victory over death.  My parents spent the day with us so we had a terrific time of fellowship and spirited discussion around our Easter table.  How did you spend Easter?

This week I have another of our free Homeschool Webinars for you.  I am so excited about this topic and will be doing the presentation myself.

- Do you see other homeschool families that seem to “have it together” and not sure how you’re doing with your own kids?

- Do you wonder how your kids will turn out when they finish homeschooling?

- Do you ever feel like you’re beating your head against a wall because nothing seems to be working in your homeschool?

- Do you worry about which curriculum is best for your family this year?

================================================================
That’s exactly what I’ll be covering this Thursday, April 28

Homeschooling, Seminars-Webinars No Comments

Hi,

Here is an important update…

I wanted to let you know about an absolutely free, live webinar
I’m holding with Patrick Barrett that’s happening THIS Thursday,
March 24, 2011 at 7:00pm (Central Time), especially for you.

http://driveredinabox.com/webinar/

On this groundbreaking free event, using the latest webinar
technology, Patrick and I will show you the

“The Secrets to the Easy Way to Teach
Your Teen to Drive Collision-Free!”

I know many of you have teens who are almost 16, who are chomping
at the bit to get behind the wheel. This can be a terrifying
experience for parents…BUT it doesn’t have to be!

I want to introduce you to my friend Patrick Barrett, who has a proven
track record of helping teens learn how to drive the right
way…collision-free.

Even more amazing is the fact that Patrick has helped over
71,000 families make lasting memories as parents coached their
teen through learning how to drive…all the while maintaining
their sanity!

On this webinar…I’ll get Patrick to reveal how parents can stay
relaxed WHILE their teen is driving, why traditional driver
education has failed to produce safer drivers, and  5 communication
strategies that take the pressure off both you and your teen and make your
in-car lessons a joy and a breeze.

Plus not only will you be able to HEAR us, but you’ll also SEE
and WATCH it happening in real time on your computer screen,
complete with real examples and case studies! (And it doesn’t
matter what connection speed you have or even if you have a PC or
Mac.)

Properly applied, the strategies revealed during this event will
allow you to experience more peace of mind while your teen is
on the road than you have ever dreamed possible!

We only have 200 spots for this event. So there’s a very good
chance this will FILL completely.

Claim your spot here while you can:

Don’t delay and kick yourself later.

Sincerely,

Kerry Beck & Patrick Barrett

P.S. – We have something VERY special cooked up for those who
attend the webinar LIVE. It will be worth your while to be on
this webinar, I guarantee it!

P.S.S. – Since there’s zero cost for this one-time-only event, we
expect this will be completely booked in no time flat.

How You Can Win a FREE Copy…

College, Seminars-Webinars No Comments

- Are you stressed about homeschooling high school because of what comes AFTER high school?

- Are you worried about how you will ever convince the universities that your humble homeschool provided a great education?

- Are you concerned that your students won’t get the credit they deserve for all the hard work all of you put into your homeschool?

You are NOT alone!

All homeschool parents share these insecurities.  Lee Binz, The HomeScholar, did as well.  Yet when they graduated from homeschooling high school they were both awarded FULL-TUITION SCHOLARSHIPS to their first choice university!  That bit of news saved their family OVER $184,000!!

Boy, there was a celebration that day!!

What made the difference?  How did Lee and her husband Matt go from massive insecurity to unbounded joy?  After speaking in depth to the university who gave them those fabulous awards, it became clear that what opened the door ~ the comprehensive records they provided when their student’s applied.

http://tinyurl.com/crsolution

Those records convinced the colleges that their students were not only READY for college, but they were also REAL and they were RIGHT.

Are they READY?  Are they REAL?  Are they RIGHT?

Answering these three questions is the biggest challenge parents face in convincing the universities to give their students admission and scholarships.

On January 25 at 5 PM Pacific Lee is going to prove to you why a comprehensive record is the most effective way to overcome this challenge.  That is the day she is offering her Comprehensive Record Solution to my readers at a very special promotional price, much lower than is shown on the offer page above.

Just prior to the launch, at 4PM Pacific Time, Lee will be holding a FREE, information-packed webinar all about how to prepare homeschool records that will BLOW AWAY the colleges.  You are not going to want to miss that webinar, which will include all of the details of her special offer.

https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/794177233

Watch the clock!  The time is EXACT, according to www.time.gov!

Why is it important to make a note of that precise time?  Because Lee has told me about some AMAZING extra bonuses for the first group of homeschoolers to order this program.  So be ready right at launch time, because these bonuses will go FAST!!  I will be releasing more details in the days to come but you will be amazed at the extra helpful tools and training this first group of lucky customers will receive.

Comprehensive Record Solution

But even if you aren’t one of the early responders, you are going to receive some GREAT bonuses.  It’s all part of Lee’s MASTER PLAN to help ALL homeschooling families to feel confident about the high school years!

Until next time,
Kerry Beck
Christian Parenting Assoc, Director


PS.  NEWSFLASH!!
