“Anxiety in teens is higher than it's ever been. Because these kids are having to perform at a standard that is a generalized standard that they don't necessarily fit into and it does make sense because when we remove God's design and plan, we end up with these things like depression. Because the Bible tells us that the joy of the Lord is my strength. And so when I'm sent into a place every day where, well, God is there but where I'm not allowed to be taught about God or speak of God or see God or do things God's way, then it's not going to be a joy-filled place. When you remove the Lord from the school, you're also removing joy and strength.” – Aby Rinella

Aby_Rinella_-_Benefits_of_Homeschooling_Part_2_-_Podcast_Thumbnail.jpg
 

Aby Rinella is back with me today and we are talking about the benefits of homeschooling. We talked before about “The Why of Homeschooling” and today we’re building on some of those ideas. We recorded that episode several months ago, but this is the second part of that conversation about the many, many benefits of being able to keep our kids at home and disciple them.

The Bible passage that we have parked on for this episode is Matthew 6:31-33, but really focusing on verse 33. But it starts out, "Therefore, do not be anxious, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' for the Gentiles seek after these things, and your Heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."

 
Several months ago, Aby and Yvette had a great conversation in which they talked about the "Why of Homeschooling" and it's possibly our most popular episode. Aby and Yvette did another two episodes with Karen DeBeus on "The Who, Why, and How of Homeschooling", which have also been a beloved resource for homeschool families.
 
"I think in the beginning, I would look at other kids who parents would talk about the struggles that they had with their children but also the blessings of it too. But I thought, well... Homeschooling's going to be different in our house. It's going to run smoothly. And as I had this fairytale in my mind of what it was going to look like, we were going to just have this perfectly scheduled-out day. My children were going to just sit so compliantly in their desks and they were going to just do the work that I asked them to do. And they were going to learn everything the first time and they were not going to argue with me. I mean, I had this idea of how it was going to unfold and then I started homeschooling!"

“God’s way is best. God has a best design. When God designed us to be parents and he laid out in his word as to what it means to be parents, he gave us directions to go with that, that would guide us to be the best parents we can be. He does that with everything. How can you best manage money? How can you best be married? How can you best even run a business and a government? It’s everything that we need for life and godliness is in his word. And so with that is also how can we best raise our children? And the Bible is very clear that to best raise our children to serve and honor and worship him is to do it according to his word in everything that we do all day long.” – Aby Rinella

Join Aby Rinella and Yvette Hampton in this two-part series, as they talk about the benefits of homeschooling.
 
Several months ago, Aby and Yvette had a great conversation in which they talked about the "Why of Homeschooling" and it's possibly our most popular episode. Aby and Yvette did another two episodes with Karen DeBeus on "The Who, Why, and How of Homeschooling", which have also been a beloved resource for homeschool families.
 
On this one we want to take that a little bit further and we want to talk about the blessings and the benefits of homeschooling. So once people know and understand what their why is, we want to talk about the great joy and blessings that come from it. And the verse that Aby and I have been talking about a lot is Matthew 6:33, and for our family this has become a verse that has been very instrumental to us in this amazing journey that God has had us on with filming the documentary, and even just with life, with homeschooling, with trying to figure out this whole parenting thing. And so I'm going to read this verse to you again. Many of you already know it, but we're going to start out with it.
 
Matthew 6:31-33 "Therefore, do not be anxious saying, what shall we eat or what shall we drink or what shall we wear, for the Gentiles seek after all these things and your heavenly father knows that you need them all. But seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."

Matthew 4:19 says, “Come and follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”

"He asked the men to drop their nets and walk away from everything that they knew, everything comfortable, everything that they kind of had figured out. And he said, 'Let it all go. Leave it all behind, and follow me into the unknown. But know that I’m with you.'" - Aby Rinella

 Schoolhouse Rocked Production Update

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

On June 8, we ventured off on a 10 day trip across the country to meet up with Heidi St. John, her family, and their team at the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center in Vancouver, Washington.

Our time there was incredibly successful as we finished filming the rest of Schoolhouse Rocked with Heidi and her crew. Though we had already filmed the majority of the interviews for the movie, we still needed to film a narrative that would weave throughout the film. Together, Heidi and I were able to tell that story and it couldn’t have gone better. If you’ve ever heard Heidi speak, or listened to her podcast, you know that she is passionate about the Gospel and homeschooling, and is an excellent communicator. She was God’s perfect provision for this very important part of the movie.

After filming in Washington, we headed south to California to spend some much needed time with family and friends. What a blessing it has been to reconnect and share with so many how faithful the Lord has been over the past 3 years as we’ve worked on, and now finished, production on the movie. We serve a VERY faithful God!!

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP! 
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.

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?

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.

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.”
Romans 12:4-5

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)

"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

"I started to really pray about it, and a few people approached me and said, 'Have you thought about homeschooling?' And I was like, 'No, because that’s not something we’re going to do.' And so it really started, though, to chase me down; God started to chase me down. Because I think, deep down, I did sort of admire what I knew about homeschooling, but I just thought, 'That’s not for us.'" - Karen DeBeus

"Why do I homeschool? Because today my children will be at home with me, learning about the catastrophic events that happened in New York. About the evil that happens when we deviate from God's design. And about how we have a God that mourns because he loves his people. They will be home with me, praying for the preborn babies, rather than in a public school system that tells them they get to choose for themselves what is good and evil, rather than looking to God for truth." - Aby Rinella
