Let’s Not Forget to Teach the Basics

Let’s Not Forget to Teach the Basics

In our current fast paced society, we make what seems to be very significant advances daily. Whether it’s the development of autonomous cars, the advancements in modern medicine or the redirection of buying habits from brick and mortar stores to online. It’s mind blowing what we can do with the talents God has given us.

On the flip side, we also see widespread evidence that the basic skills in life are getting lost within the massive world of advancement. The skills needed to run a household or a small business just don’t seem to be a priority these days.

Andrew Pudewa on School At Home

“Sometimes we just need to get that break from our, kind, of addiction to doing school at home. A lot of people want to do homeschooling, so they’ll, you know, pull their kids out, or not go to an institution, and then they’ll recreate that same kind of conveyor belt method at home, because that’s that’s all we know. That’s what we came through, and it’s hard not to do to your kids what was done to you, whether it was the right thing or not. And so we have to kind of break those paradigms.”

Yvette sits down for a Facebook Live with Durenda Wilson, author of The Unhurried Homeschooler. We had a great time interviewing Durenda and her husband Darryl for Schoolhouse Rocked, at their awesome Airbnb in Mayberry! When I posted the original video it was rotated 90 degrees. Here it is in an actual, watchable (but still extremely overcompressed) format!

Classical Conversations Celebrates 20 Years of Knowing God and Making Him Known!

We were privileged to be a part of the Classical Conversations 20th Anniversary Celebration, where we were asked to share the world premier of the official trailer for Schoolhouse Rocked! It was an absolutely fantastic night, featuring some great speakers and capped off by an excellent time of worship. God is glorified in Classical Conversations, and we pray he will continued to be glorified for many more years as Classical Conversations helps students to know God and make Him known.
