Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of. ~Charles Spurgeon

Thanks Dawn....Pause Music Player


  1. Are you familiar with Charlotte Mason? Francis Schaeffer's daughter, Susan, wrote at great lengths about her educational philosophies and they play well into this video. Here is a quick link to her 20 Principles on educating children.

    Susan Schaeffer Macaulay's book is "For the Children's Sake: Foundations of Education for Home and School" EXCELLENT! She talks about how asking a young boy to sit still for hours on end while being lectured at is a sin on the part of us adults. God demands more from us as teachers/leaders and nurturers of intellect to excite them about the world around them--not deprive them of it. Love it!

  2. Yes I am familiar, some what. Thanks for the link!!!
    I hated sitting for hours on end, so why would I make my children do it??? Education should be fun and interactive.
