“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.”  ~ Psalm 23:1-2 (ESV)

“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.”  ~ Job 12:7-10 (ESV)

“For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”   ~ Romans 1:19-20 (ESV)

“God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.”  ~ Genesis 1:10 (ESV)

“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.” ~ Psalm 19:1-2 (ESV)

Important Production Update - Summer 2019 Schedule

Schoolhouse Rocked Production Update

Don't miss this important production update. Yvette and Brooklyn Hampton discuss the plans for finishing the film. 

PLEASE PARTNER WITH US TO FINISH PRODUCTION ON
SCHOOLHOUSE ROCKED: THE HOMESCHOOL REVOLUTION!

Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you for your amazing support, encouragement, and prayers over the past several weeks. God is doing BIG things and we are so excited to share them with you. We asked you to pray for the Lord to guide us, and He has! We are SO excited to tell you that in a few weeks, we are driving west from Georgia to Washington to complete the filming of Schoolhouse Rocked with Heidi St. John!

The remainder of what needs to be filmed to complete the movie is the narrative portion. We have interviewed several fantastic homeschool experts and families, but in order for Schoolhouse Rocked to be an entertaining and compelling film, there must be an engaging and relatable storyline to tie all the interviews together. That’s where Heidi comes in. We will join Heidi at the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center in Vancouver, Washington to talk about the ups and downs, benefits and blessings, challenges and victories of homeschooling.

For those of you who are not familiar with Heidi, she is a homeschool mom of 7 and an outspoken advocate for truth. She is dedicated to changing culture through the faithful application of God’s Word. She is a popular speaker and author, and host of the Heidi St. John podcast. You will be BLESSED by her important part in Schoolhouse Rocked!

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!  As you can imagine, this cross-country journey and filming in Washington is going to be quite costly. God has been faithful to provide for production up until now, through people like yourself, as well as a few awesome sponsors, and we know He will continue to do so.

In order to complete filming with Heidi, we need to raise approximately $30k, in the next few weeks, for crew, travel, equipment, and other costs. It’s a big number, we know. But, we also know that our God is really big and that where He guides, He ALWAYS provides! Our trip is planned, our family is packed up, and we are going! Will you help us get there?

Here’s how YOU can help – 

 
PRAY~ God hears our prayers and is faithful and able to answer. We have continuously seen Him at work throughout this important project. 

DONATE~ Make a tax-deductible donation of any amount.

SHARE~ Share this message with friends and family who believe in the importance of homeschooling.

We are thankful for you, the homeschool community, who continue to walk this journey with us through prayer, encouragement, and financial support.

We are in this together and can’t wait to update you on God’s amazing provision!

Sincerely,
Yvette Hampton, Producer

 
Soli Deo gloria!

Part 2 - The Who, Why, and How of Homeschooling, with Aby Rinella, Karen DeBeus, and Yvette Hampton

Aby Rinella, Karen DeBeus, Yvette Hampton - Homeschool Podcast

Part 2 - In this special roundtable discussion, Aby Rinella, Karen DeBeus, and Yvette Hampton talk about Why, How, and Who of Homeschooling.

"you might not be organized, and you might not love to lesson plan, but the reality is that’s the mom that God gave your kids, and those are the kids that God gave you. And so he perfectly meshes those things together, and there’s no piece of paper that any state can ever give you that qualifies you any more than the God who created both us and our children qualifies us; he’s the one that qualifies us.'" - Aby Rinella
