their chart. And the housework gets consistently done without nagging.
• Carve out a 20 minute time for you to
seek God. Or maybe a 10 minute chunk
three times a day. Maybe it is at the kitchen sink. Maybe it is in the nursing chair.
Maybe it is in the bathroom or closet.
Get there and get low before God, get in
His Word, and He will lift you up out of
hopelessness and into strength and joy.
• Get rid of time wasters and get up and
keep doing the next right thing.
There is hope because learning is going on
even if it is not in the books. If we have studied the Bible together and prayed, we call it
a great day because we have done something
eternal. If we have laughed together and
played, we call it a good day because we have
built relationships that will stand through
time. If we have served together and helped
someone else, we call it a wonderful day because we have been like Jesus.
Not one day is wasted when doing all that
we do for the glory of God alone (
Colossians 3: 23). And there is a lot of hope in
all of that. Show your children what hope
looks like as you keep them Home Where

Dr. Rorty teaches psychology at State U. He thinks your children should grow out of their Christian
His plan is to make them feel silly about being Christians.
You can make sure they’re ready. Your children’s first exposure to psychology should come from a
Christian perspective, and it should happen before they go to college. It’s important, and you are the
one to do it with a little help from Dr. Tim Rice, author and educator.
His work, Homeschool Psych, Preparing Christian Homeschool Students for Psychology 101, plus the
Student Workbook, is a turn-key curriculumwith assignments and answer keys–perfect for the busy
Psychology: A Christian Perspective, High School Edition is for co-ops, Christian schools, and
homeschoolers who want to dig deeper. The accompanying Teachers’ Guide demystifies teaching
psychology and provides the resources you need to tailor the class for your students.
Dr. Rice’s novel, It’s Not That Simple, Natty Rose, tells the story of one homeschooler’s coming of
age at college. It has a handsome boy, a loveable mentor, a mentally ill roommate, and a hard-core
evolutionist psychology professor ... like Dr. Rorty. Just like life, it’s a little edgy, so it’s recommended
for ages 14+.
Many families choose live online classes with Dr. Rice. In his lectures, Dr. Rice introduces students
to the study of God’s grandest creation–the human mind–from a distinctly Christian worldview
perspective. Students discover why the Cristian worldview makes sense and why evolutionary
naturalism is silly. They may give Dr. Rorty a run for his money.
