Tidbits for January 31st
The Ultimate Book List for Boys - I love book lists, and this is a great one. (The Modest Mom)
7 Way to Show Your Children You Value Them, Every Day - "I got to thinking that I wanted to share more with my children what I value about them, helping them see themselves through God’s eyes and not through the lens of the world with its unrealistic and sometimes ungodly expectations." (The Purposeful Mom)
Epidurals: Do They Or Don't They Increase Cesareans? - Henci Goer examines the evidence for and against. (Science and Sensibility)
Two Years to No Lies - Fascinating. (The List)
How I Simplify My Homeschool Day With Textbooks - "When I first started exploring the possibilities of using textbooks I felt guilty inside. I was betraying everything I had been taught!" (The Modest Mom via Intoxicated on Life)
From the Bookshelf
Already Compromised by Ken Ham and Greg Hall
"A stunning revelation about the nation's Christian colleges! Apologetics powerhouse Ken Ham teams with Dr. Greg Hall for an eye-opening assessment of 200 Christian colleges and universities from across America. During the unprecedented 2010 study by Britt Beemer's America's Research Group (ARG), these colleges were polled on core faith questions...and the results are revealing and shocking! Examine the beginnings of the Ivy League schools and their now forgotten purpose at their formation. Observe the views, responses, and answers to basic questions from these Christian colleges that will surprise and alarm you."
Fascinating and enlightening (though not particularly surprising) - a good read, and an interesting study in competing worldviews.
Have a wonderful weekend!
