JUNE - 2017 NEWSLETTER

note

Greetings from the President’s desk;

Hello all:  I am hoping you took advantage of registering for the CHAP Convention.      We are volunteering and working with the CHAP committee here in Lancaster, Pennsylvania for the next couple of days.  Well, summer season is very quickly approaching, are you ready for it?   During this summer season, please take some time to do some memorable activities with your family and loved ones.  They do grow up very quickly…  Make many precious memories for you all.   Following are some encouraging Bible Scriptures with words of encouragement for you.

“And the Lord gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the Lord delivered all their enemies into their hand.”    Joshua 21:44 KJV

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”    Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV


“I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. He hath made everything beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.”   Ecclesiastes 3:10-12 KJV

 
On another note, looking ahead to October 6-7 2017, ENOCH of NJ is hosting a one and a half Days (1 ½) to share fascinating Entrepreneurial Workshops for the New Jersey Homeschooling families.    These workshops will help parents and young people with lots of options to assist them in finding the right career/choices for their future not just a regular job, but in fact teaching them valuable information regarding education, planning and mentoring and owning their own businesses. 

If you desire to have your children:

• 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, etc.

Then these wonderful workshops are for you and your family.

One of the many 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.

Many Parents like us have never really 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, or even us, ourselves as parents do not have any idea we could own our own businesses.   We have to learn it as we go.

These workshops give you a practical framework on Training Children to Be Leaders Instead of Followers.

There will be more information in the upcoming months leading up to the Entrepreneur Workshops.   We, my wife and I met the speaker at the Annual State Leaders Conference last September.    We spoke with her for over an hour and a half and we were so very excited to hear all the wonderful information she had to share and all the successful stories of people who have ventured out and have become true Entrepreneurs.  We thought that the homeschooling families of New Jersey really needed to come out and hear all the wonderful information and options available to the homeschool community!  We are greatly looking forward to availing this information with you!

We pray that the Lord will give you the peace and grace you need as you are finishing your 2016-2017 homeschooling year.   We are all looking forward to the upcoming summer and for better warmer days. . 

 May God Bless You Richly!

David A. West

ENCOURAGING WORDS

 


THE STORM

Author Unknown

After a few of the usual Sunday evening hymns, the church's Pastor slowly stood up, walked over to the pulpit and, before he gave his sermon for the evening, briefly introduced a guest Minister who was in the service that evening. In the introduction, the Pastor told the congregation that the guest Minister was one of his dearest childhood friends and that he wanted him to have a few moments to greet the church and share whatever he felt would be appropriate for the service. With that, the elderly gentleman stepped up to the pulpit and began to speak.

"A father, and his son, and a friend of his son were sailing off the Pacific coast," he began... "When a fast storm blocked any attempt to get back to the shore. The waves were so high, even though the father was an experienced sailor, he could not keep the boat upright and the three were swept into the ocean as the boat capsized."

The old man hesitated for a moment, making eye contact with two teenagers who were, for the first time since the service began, looking somewhat interested in his story. The aged minister continued with his story...

"Grabbing a rescue line, the father had to make the most excruciating decision of his life: to which boy would he throw the end of the life line? He had only seconds to make the decision. The father knew that his son was a Christian and he also knew that his son's friend was not. The agony of his decision could not be matched by the torrent of waves.

As the father yelled out 'I Love You, Son!' he threw out the life line to his son's friend. By the time the father had pulled the friend back to the capsized boat his son had disappeared beneath the raging swells into the black night. His body was never recovered," the old man said sadly.

By this time, the two teenagers were sitting up straight in the pew, anxiously waiting for the next words to come out of the old Minister's mouth.

"The father," he continued, "knew his son would step into eternity with Jesus and he could not bear the thought of his son's friend stepping into an eternity without Jesus. Therefore, he sacrificed his son to save the son's friend. How great is the love of God that he should do the same for us? Our Heavenly Father sacrificed His only begotten Son so that we could be saved. I urge you to accept His offer to rescue you and take hold of the life line He is throwing out to you in this service."

With that, the old man turned and sat back down in his chair as silence filled the room. The Pastor again walked slowly to the pulpit and delivered a brief sermon with an invitation at the end. However, no one responded to the appeal. But, within moments after the service ended, the two boys were at the old man's side.

"That was a nice story," politely stated one of the boys, "but I don't think it was very realistic for a father to give up his only son's life in hopes that the other would become a Christian."

"Well, you've got a point there," the old man replied, glancing down at his worn Bible. As a big smile broadened his narrow face, he looked up again at the boys and said, "It sure isn't very realistic, is it? But I'm here today to tell you this story gives me a glimpse of what it must have been like for God to give up His only Son for me. You see...I was that father, and your Pastor is my son's friend."

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.

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!

 SUMMER SOCCER TEAMS – Boys & Girls Born between 2002 - 2008

Runs from Mid-June – Mid-July

FC Europa was formed to give youth soccer players professional coaches and trainers, with a defined curriculum to help foster your child's soccer development. Our mission - through supportive coaching and programs, will help your child on and off the field with greater self-confidence.

Each of our teams will be professionally trained and coached. We also offer specialized trainers to work with goalies, along with trainers to work on conditioning and speed and agility.

We will be training and playing at our locations in Middlesex and Monmouth counties. Our teams will be competing in EDP under US Club Soccer.

We offer the most affordable program with more training, tournaments and league play than other clubs do. Financial assistance is available for families that may need it so that cost will not be a factor in your child's development.

FC Europa will offer your child top level training and development as we strive to be the premier club for your child. As our motto states: Accountability-Dedication-Excellence, and we will pass this is on to your child.
