“You talked about math. Where do these invisible laws of mathematics come from and why don't they randomly change? They come from the mind of God, and they don't change because God doesn't change. Laws of nature. The whole reason we can do science to begin with is we have laws of nature that are, they're not tangible, but they don't change. They're consistent every time and that's why you can do an experiment today and tomorrow and get the same results if you do it the same way. Well that's only possible because God made not only the tangible world, but the non-tangible world. He made the laws of nature. He holds them together so they don't randomly change. They reflect Him. And so the only reason you can do science to begin with is because God is real and the Bible's true. And you can point out all of that when you're teaching it from a Biblical perspective.” – Bryan Osborne, Answers in Genesis

 Schoolhouse Rocked Production Update

Bryan Osborne is a well-respected speaker, author, and curriculum specialist for Answers in Genesis. He holds a master’s degree in education and taught Bible history in a public school for 13 years. He has been teaching Christians to defend their faith for nearly 20 years. We had the privilege of interviewing Bryan for Schoolhouse Rocked, at the Creation Museum, and that interview was one that dramatically shaped the direction of the rest of the film. We can’t wait for you to see his contribution when the film is released, but in the meantime we were able to interview him for The Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast and we know you will be encouraged by his insights into education, Biblical worldview, and discipleship.

“Dear Christian, please recognize that God’s Word is being attacked at a foundational level, and that’s why so many of your kids and grandkids are walking away from the faith. We’ve got to give them the right foundation, which is based on the idea that the truth that God’s Word is the absolute authority, and all things will go from there.” – Bryan Osborne

We couldn’t be more excited to announce that WE ARE DONE FILMING for Schoolhouse Rocked!!

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP! 

In order to complete this film with excellence, we need the help of the homeschooling community… we need YOU! The post-production budget for the film is $198,157. The majority of that budget still needs to be funded, so we are asking you to pledge monthly for the next 12 months to help us reach this goal. As a community we can finish this movie! Will you please join us?

Schoolhouse Rocked is not our movie. It’s a project by and for the homeschool community, and it’s all for God’s glory. We are confident that He will use this important resource to grow the homeschooling community and impact families around the world. However, if we are not able to raise the necessary funds to get through post-production, all progress on the movie will stop.

Here’s how YOU can help..

1} PRAY! Pray for the Lord’s continued protection over our family, wisdom as we move forward, and for Schoolhouse Rocked to be fully funded. Pray also that this film will have a huge impact in God’s kingdom. Our greatest desire is not to simply make a movie about homeschooling, but to impact families and culture for Christ.

2} PLEDGE MONTHLY for the next 12 months. Any amount helps and it adds up quickly. Whether you can afford $10/month or $100/month or more, it’s all the same in God’s economy and will be a huge step towards finishing the movie and getting it into theaters.

TO MAKE A MONTHLY, TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION
of any amount, CLICK HERE.
Select the amount you would like to donate, then hit donate.
On the next page it will allow you to make this a monthly donation.

3} SHARE THE NEED with anyone you know who believes in homeschooling. If you know someone who you think would be interested in supporting this project, please share this important work with them or put them in touch with us. We need the support of the homeschool community, sponsors, and donors both big and small.

There is a real need to pull together as a community and support the important ministry of Schoolhouse Rocked!

“For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”

Ginger Hubbard is an encouragement to me and thousands of other homeschool moms as she speaks at conventions all across the country on the topic of biblical parenting. She is the author of several books including Don’t Make Me Count to Three, Wise Words for Moms, and I Can't Believe You Just Said That!

Ginger Hubbard on Biblical Parenting

"Imagine trying to teach your child how to tie his shoes without the practice principle. Just verbally walking him through the process is not going to be enough. At some point, you would have to physically demonstrate how to do it, and then not only that, but require him to practice it on his own. And so, the way that I look at it is if the practice principal is vital for teaching such a morally neutral task as tying shoes, how much more important is it for training children in Christ-like character?" - Ginger Hubbard

“The thing is—it’s not even about the academics. Homeschooling is important, academics are important, because that’s what points our children towards Christ. But parenting is not about academics. It’s about discipling and training the hearts of our children." - Yvette Hampton

"A lot of times parents are fearful because they think "I'm not trained," or "I don't have any special background.", but they are the expert when it comes to their child, so we’re arming them with some good resources. If you have a child with dyslexia, then we're going to point you to resources and books and services for dyslexia or autism because knowledge is power and we battle fear by prayer and trusting in God..." - Faith Berens

We have got to educate people, as to what freedom and liberty are about, what the constitution is all about, parental rights, and who our kids belong to. That’s very elementary. Socialism and Marxism would have us believe our kids belong to the government.” – Zan Tyler

 

Zan Tyler - Homeschool Podcast Interview

While we were at the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center, in Vancouver, Washington to finish filming interviews for Schoolhouse Rocked, homeschool pioneer, Zan Tyler stopped by for a surprise visit. Zan was instrumental in the fight to make homeschooling legal in South Carolina, in the early 1980s. She was in Oregon to speak at the Oregon Christian Home Education Association Network (OCEANetwork) homeschool conference, in Albany, Oregon and wanted to visit Heidi St. John and get a tour of the homeschool resource center. Because her story of the legal battles and persecution that she endured to pave the way for homeschooling families in her state provided such important historical perspective and cautionary advice, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to interview her for the movie and for the podcast.
