“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.

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

Heidi St. John - You Can Homeschool!

In late June and early July we were in Vancouver, Washington to finish filming Schoolhouse Rocked with Heidi St. John at the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center. During our time there Yvette had a chance to record an episode of the Heidi St. John Podcast with Heidi. 

Heidi St. John and Yvette Hampton answer viewers questions about homeschooling.

Following the show, Yvette and Heidi went live on Facebook to answer viewer questions about homeschooling. This episode of the podcast and the following Q&A was such an encouragement to listeners we decided to rebroadcast it and make the Q&A video available to our subscribers and Backstage Pass members.

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.

Following her dramatic battle for the right to homeschool her children, Zan went on to teach them through graduation and all three of them attended college on a variety of scholarships. Gaining resolve during her battle, she went on to fight for other homeschooling families in South Carolina and across the United States, founding the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools in 1990, Speaking at homeschool conventions around the world, and writing several books, including Seven Tools for Cultivating Your Child’s Potential and the forward for Heidi St. John's Busy Homeschool Mom's Guide to Daylight: Managing Your Days Through the Homeschool Years.

“my job is that general contractor role where I have to know what’s going on in the family. I have to know my children by heart. I have to know where their weak points are, where their strengths are. I have to be able to identify when one of them is not doing well spiritually, when one of them is failing academically in some way.

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

Schoolhouse Rocked Production Update

 

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
