JULY - 2017 NEWSLETTER

note

Greetings from the President’s desk;

Summer has finally arrived. I would like to encourage you to enjoy your families during this summer season.  Make lasting memorable memories with your loved ones.  Whether it be day trips, staycations, or week long family vacations, may the Lord refresh your mind, body, and spirit during this season. 

Please make sure not to take a vacation from your relationship with Christ, but invite Him into every activity you and your family endeavor to do.  In doing so, may He will give you an opportunity in the midst of life to use for His Glory.   

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:16 NIV

We are looking excitedly ahead to an event in October 6-7 2017, ENOCH of NJ is planning on hosting a one and a half Day Entrepreneurial workshop for New Jersey and surrounding states.  We believe you will be edified, encouraged and get a new and different prospective on other options beyond homeschooling for the future of your families and children.   Pre-registration will be opened on-line for the October workshops on July 15th, 2017 @ https://enochnj.webconnex.com/EntrepreneurshipWorkshop.   SPREAD THE WORD!

An outline for the workshops will be posted on the ENOCH website by that time.  And it is also listed below on out events and activities section of this newsletter.

These workshops will help young people find the right career instead of just getting a job that takes more specific education, planning and mentoring than we've been taught.

If you want your children to:

• Serve God

• Discover their gifts

• Serve others with their gifts and talents

• Develop an entrepreneurial mindset 

• Get specific education to operate in the Internet Age

• Provide well for their families

• Live financially free

• Contribute well to their communities. 

One of the duties of parents is to prepare their children to enter the Real World with an adequate education that will allow them to contribute to society and provide well for their families.

What worked in the Industrial Revolution no longer works as well today. Jobs are disappearing daily and many are being shipped overseas. Our schools have replaced our Christian heritage and academic focus with dumbed-down Humanistic philosophies.

Parents like us haven't been trained to think entrepreneurially in a system that was designed to create employees so we aren't equipped to train our children to be entrepreneurial. We have to learn it as we go.

These workshops give you a practical framework on 

Training Children to Be Leaders Instead of followers

May you all enjoy your summer, and your time with your family. 

God Bless and keep you all.

ENCOURAGING WORDS 

     


SAVING THE FLAG!

By Jaye Lewis
She was not the most popular girl in high school.  She was in advanced studies, in a school system that idolized their honors program. My daughters thought the world of her, and with good reason. Aimee was a patriot. No apologies nor excuses. She was an officer in her high school JROTC program. She was disciplined. Courageous. And she loved her country.

You could always pick Aimee out in a field filled with young, military hopefuls marching in formation. She was sharp. She was proud. And, in spite of her petite form, she always looked tall. But Aimee did not have it easy.  She was the butt of jokes and ridicule. Aimee worked her heart out in her classes, and she was about to graduate with a better than 5.0 average, which she had maintained for four straight years.

In a school system where the grade point average of the "honors" classes went up to 6.0, Aimee didn't stand a chance for Valedictorian. Some unseen experts decided that Aimee would not become Valedictorian, because it would be unfair to the honors students. Although she had never made less than an "A" in her entire high school career, some "A-B" student in the honors program outranked Aimee.

The high school Principal fought his way up through the School Board on Aimee's behalf, to give her the honor she deserved. It was an outrage that such excellence would be ignored. It didn't make the papers, but on graduation day, Aimee received her victory, and she became Co-Valedictorian of her high school class, although many of us thought she had earned the honor to stand alone. Aimee did not sit with the other graduates. She stood, proudly, with her JROTC unit, as the assembly turned towards them to salute the flag.  Aimee did not hold the flag, because she was graduating, but she was there, as always, proud to serve.

Graduation was held in the football field. It was sunny and windy, and it was wet, as it had rained torrents the night before. Suddenly, the wind kicked up, and the beautiful colors of the red, white, and blue tottered in the air, as the flag holder lost his footing, and the flag careened toward the ground. Without hesitation, breaking formation, Aimee launched herself through the air, catching the flag and landing in the mud, on her face.

Many in the crowd roared their laughter, but not all of us. Some of us were in tears, as Aimee, carefully steadied her country's flag, and came back into formation, her JROTC uniform covered in mud. But not the flag.  It never touched the ground. Aimee had saved the flag.

Aimee graduated with honors, and she went on to college with an ROTC Scholarship, and on into a military career. My daughters still speak of her as a hero, which she was, and in our hearts still is.  Aimee's story is what legends are made of. I have no doubt that Aimee is somewhere on the front lines, today, still defending the American flag.

bible

THE BIBLE

We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, inspired word of God—the final authority for all truth and practice. In other words, it is God’s handbook for life. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NKJV) tells us, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

NEEDED LEGISLATIVE LIAISON

We are looking for a person or two who would serve as a liaison for HSLDA and ENOCH in serving the homeschool community and the politicians in Trenton. Liaison should possess knowledge in the legislative process in New Jersey, including how a bill is introduced, the hearing and voting requirements of the N.J. Assembly and Senate, as well as the governor’s final approval. Liaison must also be familiar with the regulatory agencies and law in New Jersey where such agencies or laws could have an impact on home education. These include the Department of Education, the Division of Family Services, and the Child Advocate’s Office. Other responsibilities would include: interfacing with HSLDA regarding legal threats to homeschooling freedoms in New Jersey; communicate to the ENOCH board regarding any local, state, national or international threats to homeschooling freedoms; communicate in writing – clearly outlining any threat to home education along with any recommended actions; communicate orally – to testify at Senate or Assembly hearings, and as needed with regulatory agencies; to recommend to the ENOCH board how and what to communicate to the public, including the press, regarding home education and any bills or laws related to homeschooling in New Jersey.

*** ENOCH of NJ Presents

Entrepreneurship Workshop

With Rhea Perry

 

We are excited to share this wonderful opportunity to the homeschooling communities of New Jersey and beyond!   Please share this information with your local support groups and other folks that may be interested in hearing this “REALLY EXITING” information!   Rhea speaks to and trains all types of professionals including multi- millionaires….  

A day and a half days of encouragement, education and spectacular fun stories!

 SAVE THE DATE:  October 6-7, 2017

 Spend Friday night and all day Saturday learning how to help your young people gain a mindset for developing successful home businesses!

 Creating and managing a home business requires more specific education, planning and mentoring than we've been taught in traditional school.

 If you desire for your children or yourselves to:

 

• Discover their specific gifts

• Serve God and others with their gifts and talents

• Develop an entrepreneurial mindset 

• Get specific education to operate in the Internet Age

• Provide well for their families

• Live financially free

• Contribute to their communities

 Then bring them to this workshop to get vision for how to live and work outside of the educational box!

 One of the duties of parents is to prepare their children to enter the Real World with an adequate education that will allow them to contribute to society and provide well for their families. What worked in the Industrial Revolution no longer works as well today. Jobs are disappearing daily and many are being shipped overseas.

 Parents haven't been trained to think entrepreneurially in a system that was designed to train employees so many aren't equipped to educate children to be entrepreneurial.

 This workshop is designed to equip parents to think bigger about their children’s education and to help those creative entrepreneurs in the house find the freedom to be who God created them to be – business owners that solve problems for customers and create jobs to employ others.

 Our Speaker

 

rhea

Rhea Perry has educated her 7 children at home since 1987.  Her oldest son, Drew, brought his dad home from corporate America in just three years. Her second son, Will, started a successful commercial and industrial roofing company with his brother after apprenticing with a godly mentor.

In the 1980s, the Perry family represented Lifetime Books and Gifts, a company that supplied homeschoolers with living books and resources, throughout the South for five years. Through helping moms select curriculum, Rhea saw the importance of preparing young people to enter the world as leaders in business and government, but especially in home business.

After learning how to do business on the Internet from some very successful online marketers, she became an award-winning Internet business owner. Just a few years later, her husband of 33 years lost his battle with cancer and left her with four of their seven children still at home. The business that she built continues to provide for her family today.

Now, Rhea loves sharing her experience and knowledge of home business with homeschooling families all over the country. She believes education should empower students to serve God and mankind with their specific gifts as they create financial freedom. Building successful multiple streams of passive income through a few good home businesses is the best avenue.

 6 Sessions on Training Children/Families to Be Leaders in Home Business

Friday Night 7:00 – 8:00

 How We Brought Our Dad Home from Corporate America in Just 3 Years

 When Drew Perry was 18, he brought his college-educated dad home from corporate America in just three years. This interesting story, complete with pictures, will encourage and motivate your young people to think outside of the box and consider building financial freedom doing what they love through home business.

 8:30 – 9:30

 Home Business Education 101 – 7 foundational principles they don't teach in school

 Now that the Internet makes it even easier than ever to reach the world with your products or services, owning a home business is just one way for young people to implement practical leadership abilities to impact their world. Leadership education is different from employee-oriented education. So how do you know if you are encouraging your students to be leaders or employees? Get the answers, plus learn the secrets of entrepreneurial education the Perry family has discovered from almost 30 years of homeschooling about educating children, not just to get a diploma but for financial freedom!

 Saturday 9:00 AM to 10:00

 How to Prepare Girls for Home Business

 Whether we like it or not, there may be times in our daughter's lives before they are married, or if their husbands become ill, die or leave, when they will be required to provide financially for their children. In a world where outsourcing has become the norm in business, it's easier than ever to train young ladies to earn a nice income from home. Having foundational skills will give them the confidence they need to work part-time or full-time from home.

 10:15 to 11:15

 Apprenticeship: How to Find Godly Mentors for Your Teens

 After apprenticing with a godly homeschool dad, Rhea Perry's second son, Will, began his own business - a successful commercial roofing company. If you don’t know what to do with your budding entrepreneurs, make sure they don’t miss this story of how the Perrys implement mentors, live simply, and seek to glorify God by serving others with their natural talents and interests.

 1:00 – 2:00

 5 Home Business Projects that Teach Financial Literacy and Create Income

 In this insightful session, you will learn the fundamentals of five proven home businesses your family can start part-time that could possibly bring dad home like they did! You’ll also learn the four different types of work and why some of your children never finish a job.

 2:30 – 3:00

 How to Homeschool Your Teens for Business

 The way parents homeschool their children is just as important as the curriculum they use. To become successful leaders in the realm of business, students need to learn how to think differently. This unique session is jam packed with ideas and concepts that will challenge your young people to do more than what is expected of them. Tired of dragging your children through “school”? Don’t miss this session to discover the remedy.

DUKE FARMS

Duke Farms offers lots of wonderful programs.  They are located on 2,740 acres in Somerset County. It is one of the largest privately-owned parcels of undeveloped land in the state, and the property is rich in ecological, horticultural and agricultural resources. We also offer some unique opportunities for education that you might be interested in as a homeschooling parent.

Not only do they offer free admission six days a week (we’re closed on Wednesdays), we have a variety of free site-specific lesson plans online that can be completed while you explore the 18 miles of trails on our property. My motivation for reaching out to you was to share two new series we’re offering: Butterfly Gardening for Home Schoolers and Kids Orchid Club. Butterfly Gardening will teach students about life cycles, pollinators, and gardening in a very hands-on setting, while the Orchid Club will meet monthly and will be a hands-on introduction to botany through the beauty and mystique of orchids.

Right now they are also at the peak of nesting season for the pair of bald eagles on our property and you can watch our live cam 24/7! (Although last weekend’s storm caused a hiccup – they hoping to be back online this week!) They worked with teachers and the Conserve Wildlife Foundation on NJ to develop K-12 lesson plans that teach students math, science, language arts, history and art through the lens of our cam. The plans can be found here.

Duke Farms also offers about 300 educational programs per year on topics from maple sugaring to birdwatching. Family programs can be found here.  They would also love input on additional environment-related classes that the children in your life would be interested in, as they hope to increase our offerings for homeschool families.  Feel free to forward this information to your networks and if you have any questions about Duke Farms or ideas for programs, please don’t hesitate to reach out!  They love to hear from you.

HOMESCHOOL MOM’S DAY OUT AND WORKSHOP!

Back to (Home) School Encouragement with Karen DeBeus 

http://simplylivingforhim.com/workshops/

I have always loved speaking at homeschool conventions in the Spring. Yet, over the years I have desired to do something right before school begins in the fall because that is such a critical time to really focus on our priorities. Plus, I think it is integral that homeschooling moms PRAY over their homeschools before the beginning of the year.

So this summer, after the curriculum has been planned, and the schedules have been set, come on out for a Homeschool Mom’s Day Out! This is a Back to (Home) School Day of Encouragement. 

We will not focus on being prepared academically, but spiritually. I will be giving a few sessions that will focus on simplifying your homeschool, focusing on the most important things before you dive into the school year, letting God lead your homeschool, and more!

Come on out for fellowship and encouragement!

Back to (Home) School Encouragement with Karen DeBeus

We will explore different methods of surface decoration including texture, sprig molds, underglazes, and sgraffito. There will be new demonstrations, projects and lessons throughout the summer based on student’s interests and abilities that also incorporate the weekly theme of Markeim’s Art Camp.

PM POTTERY CAMP: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm (Ages: 8 and up)
Students learn the fundamentals of working on the potter’s wheel in a real ceramic studio. Students will learn and practice wedging, centering, opening up and pulling walls of wheel thrown forms. They will progress through the trimming and glazing process to complete their projects.
