We live in an incredibly wonder-filled world. From the smallest atom to the immeasurable reaches of outer space, certainly all of creation bears the fingerprint of God. What a blessed privilege we have, as
homeschooling parent-teachers, to introduce our children to the God of the universe and all He has created.

ens declare the glory of God, and the firmament
showeth His handiwork” (Psalm 19: 1).
