ENOCH of New Jersey e-Newsletter

OCTOBER 2012

From the President’s Desk

Desk

Friends,

This month ENOCH was busy getting our Exhibitor Registration and Workshop Speaker Registration pages up and running for the 2013 convention.  The Board has been busy making decisions and finalizing other related items to the convention. We have also been busy running the organization to help homeschoolers.

This month I decided to tell you what we have been up to and what we do for you.
As you can see we are working hard on passing along information for you as well as assisting homeschoolers with inquiries and fighting for the freedoms of homeschooling in New Jersey. ENOCH is here to serve, that is our calling. Even when we are beaten, discouraged and tired, we press on. As the Apostle Paul said in Philippians 3:14,
“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Now with that being said, everything we do costs us time for all of you and time from our families. But it also costs ENOCH financially. Please consider sharing a financial gift with us at this time. If you can give, please click here and enter the amount you can give. Thank you.

In His Service,

Rich Millward

ENOCH EVENTS AND NEWS!

Winner of the 2012 ENOCH Convention MP3

The winner of the 2012 ENOCH Convention MP3 set is Jill Miladinovich, below is what her family did this summer.
 
          I drove my daughter out to Grand Rapids, MI to attend Kuyper College for the first time.The day before we brought her, we went to Lake Michigan and took a ride over the huge sand dunes that are next to the lake. Not just a little sand- acres and acres of huge sand mountains! I never imagined that was there.

Congratulations Jill!

WEBINAR-"STRAIGHT TALK ABOUT COLLEGE"

Free Webinar Exclusively for ENOCH Members

Today, students leave college with an average student loan debt of about $30,000. Only 53% of entering college freshmen graduate within six years, and almost half of college sophomores show no significant improvement in learning compared to when they entered college. At the end of it all, students often have no idea what they want to do with their life, and, sadly, they discover that only about half of their graduating class can even find a job.

It doesn’t have to be this way. What if there were ways for your student to discover their life purpose first and then build a college education around that? What if they could earn a college degree debt-free in less than four years? What if your student could be 30% more likely to find a job upon graduation because they were spiritually mentored and prepared to pursue their God-given calling?

Would you be interested in learning more?  Click here to register.

Please join Jonathan Brush on Tuesday, 10/16 at 7:00 PM EDT for a special webinar for ENOCH’s members, "Straight Talk About College." Jonathan is a past Director of Admissions for a private college in Virginia and is currently a Regional Director of Admissions for CollegePlus.

This webinar is free, but it will forever change the way you think about college.

Encouraging Words For Homeschoolers Across The Nation

Your Faith Matters to Your Family by Eric Jones

As I was reading through the story of Noah this morning, I had some interesting thoughts about the importance of a father's faith and how it can bring blessing and protection to his entire family. Men, our faith matters.

Noah was a righteous man and was considered blameless. So when God decided to purge the earth of the evil that man had created, He recognized Noah and made plans to save him. However, we see that God ended up saving more than just Noah. He also decided to save Noah’s wife, his sons, and his sons’ wives.

It is interesting that scripture does not mention that any of these family members were righteous and blameless or walking with God. So why were they spared? Was it because God had to repopulate the earth and needed them for that task? God could have started all over with just Noah and his wife.

Was it because the sons helped their father build the ark and this was their reward? Was it the faith of the sons and their wives that saved them? In Hebrews, it only mentions that it was the faith of Noah that actually saved his entire family from the pain and destruction of the epic flood.

Do not think that I am advocating that a father’s faith can provide eternal salvation for his family. For you see, the ark only saved them from the serious storms of this life and the judgment of God for a period of time. They all eventually died and were accountable to God individually.

However, as men, we can never underestimate the importance that our faith plays in the life of our entire family. The faith and obedience of a father can protect his family from many storms in this life. It can provide that spiritual “hedge of protection” that is wide enough to shelter others.

Men, it is humbling and exciting to know that our faith affects more than just our lives. When we say yes to God and pursue Him, our families are blessed. Let’s not take our role as fathers and spiritual leaders of our families lightly. We can set the tone, provide a covering, and affect generations to come.

The stakes are high, so let’s put our trust in God, circumcise our hearts to the Lord, and live out who we are in Christ.

May we “find favor in the eyes of the Lord” and be called “righteous and blameless among the people” just as Noah was. And may our families be invited onto the ark in times of trouble and turmoil because of our faith.

Letting God Lead Your Homeschool:
In the spring of 2006 I was called to homeschool. It was never my intention or my plan, but God clearly showed me this was a calling. It was a hard step to take, but the Lord directed my steps and I have not looked back since.

Although the homeschooling journey is difficult at times, if God has put you on this path and called you here, He will lead you through each day. Perhaps you are tired, burnt out, or running on empty. Maybe you are up to your eyeballs in catalogs, highlighters, label makers, and papers. Meanwhile the laundry calls, the dishes pile up, and the kids are tired. You are tired. You are trying to decide how on earth you are going to do it all. Or maybe you just are ready to throw in the towel altogether.

This session will encourage you to keep your focus on the One who has called you here. Through my personal story and experience, you will see what happens when we take our eyes off of Him, and how each day can look when we regain our focus, fix our eyes on Him and on the true goals of homeschooling...discover the joy and freedom in letting God lead your homeschool!

About Karen:
Karen DeBeus is so excited to share her ideas about simplifying our lives and focusing on God. She loves all things simple and yearns for simpler times.

Karen has been married for 12 years to the love of her life and has 4 children.
God called her to homeschool when her youngest was about to enter kindergarten. After thinking “I could NEVER do THAT,” God had other plans…She obeyed the call and is now, not only loving homeschooling, she is passionate about educating others about homeschooling and encouraging families along the way.

Karen is the author of "Simply Homeschool: Having Less Clutter and More Joy in Your Homeschool" and "Called Home: Finding Joy in Letting God Lead Your Homeschool," both best sellers at Amazon.com. She also writes for her blog Simply Living…for Him where her goal is to encourage families, moms, and individuals, to put God first in all they do. Simplifying is about getting back to the basics and reducing the physical clutter in our lives, as well as lessening “mental clutter.”

physics

AP Physics B course: Free online lesson videos and supplemental material

I am an experienced award-winning physics teacher at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, Maryland. I teach both the algebra-based AP Physics B and the calculus-based AP Physics C courses; and I would like to share with your home educators and students my new physics website and Youtube lesson videos.
 
AP Physics B Lessons with Ms. Twu video series include lectures, physics demonstrations and problem-solving demonstrations. I strive to put an emphasis on the understanding of physics concepts and analytical problem solving skills in my lessons. I believe they can be an excellent resource for home-schoolers to use for learning physics. Because about 99% of my AP Physics B students have never taken any physics course before, these lessons are designed for students new to physics. Therefore, these lessons can be used for high school physics and honors-level physics too.

So far, I have completed videos on the first 3 units, introduction, kinematics, and forces. My plan is to have lesson videos for the entire AP Physics B curriculum uploaded before April 2013 so those who use the lessons may follow through and complete the course curriculum before the AP exam in May 2013.

At my website, www.twuphysics.org, you can find links to my videos as well as free supplemental material. I would appreciate it if you could help share my website and videos with your members. Thank you.

This class is for students in grades 9-12 and mature students in grades7 and 8.  It will run from September 2012 to May 2013 on Mondays for 2.25 hours between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm (exact class time TBD.)  Tuition of $150.00 is due at the beginning of the first class, and student commitment is expected for the whole year.  Classes will be held at Rutgers Community Christian Church (www.rccc.org).  New students must audition in late August for acceptance into the class!  To make an audition appointment, and for additional information, email May Fung at may@cfung.net.   The class will be closed once the maximum of 20 students is reached, so act quickly!

***Blue Mountain now offers a flex ticket that can be used any non-holiday Monday - Thursday from 8:30am-10pm.

Ages 5 and under get a free lift ticket.   (Individual rentals can be pre-purchased at $20 each.)

Skiing or snowboarding is a fun way for the family to get through those cold days of winter!
