Greetings from the President’s desk;

 Happy Labor Day weekend!!!                                                                              

Summer is now officially over.   Your Fall semester classes are off to a fresh new start, or about to begin.  I sincerely hope all of you are refreshed and ready to go another round of homeschooling.  Yes, I did say "Round", as in Ding! Ding!   Put on your spiritual gloves, and come out swinging.   Don't forget to keep your hands up in praise to your God, duck and dodge all the flaming darts of the enemy of our souls. 

YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN THIS FIGHT/BATTLE!   We are fighting for the very souls of your children, your spouses -  PERSEVERE!!!      Don't lose sight of the REAL GOAL!  Not only the academic excellence of your children, but most importantly the salvation of their very souls.   Remember, the reasons why you started this exciting journey.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!  There is a cloud of witnesses cheering us on!!!!


Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfector of our faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”

Hebrews 12:1-3 NIV

The exciting and very educational Entrepreneurial Workshops will be a practical step in giving your family Godly ammunition and encouragement for the fight set before you.

This is an excerpt from a prayer journal written by George Washington, the first President of the United States of American, at the young age of 20...

- Sunday Morning -

Almighty God, and most merciful father, who didst command the children of Israel to offer a daily sacrifice to thee, that thereby they might glorify and praise thee for thy protection both night and day, receive, O Lord, my morning sacrifice which I now offer up to thee; I yield thee humble and hearty thanks that thou has preserved me from the danger of the night past, and brought me to the light of the day, and the comforts thereof, a day which is consecrated to thine own service and for thine own honor. Let my heart, therefore, Gracious God, be so affected with the glory and majesty of it, that I may not do mine own works, but wait on thee, and discharge those weighty duties thou requires of me.

And since thou art a God of pure eyes, and wilt be sanctified in all who draw near unto thee, who doest not regard the sacrifice of fools, nor hear sinners who tread in thy courts, pardon, I beseech thee, my sins, remove them from thy presence, as far as the east is from the west, and accept of me for the merits of thy son Jesus Christ, that when I come into thy temple, and compass thine altar, my prayers may come before thee as incense; and as thou wouldst hear me calling upon thee in my prayers, so give me grace to hear thee calling on me in thy word, that it may be wisdom, righteousness, reconciliation and peace to the saving of the soul in the day of the Lord Jesus. Grant that I may hear it with reverence, receive it with meekness, mingle it with faith, and that it may accomplish in me, Gracious God, the good work for which thou has sent it. Bless my family, kindred, friends and country, be our God & guide this day and forever for his sake, who lay down in the Grave and arose again for us, Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

- Sunday Evening -

O most Glorious God, in Jesus Christ my merciful and loving father, I acknowledge and confess my guilt, in the weak and imperfect performance of the duties of this day. I have called on thee for pardon and forgiveness of sins, but so coldly and carelessly, that my prayers are become my sin and stand in need of pardon. I have heard thy holy word, but with such deadness of spirit that I have been an unprofitable and forgetful hearer, so that, O Lord, though' I have done thy work, yet it hath been so negligently that I may rather expect a curse than a blessing from thee.

But, O God, who art rich in mercy and plenteous in redemption, mark not, I beseech thee, what I have done amiss; remember that I am but dust, and remit my transgressions, negligences & ignorances, and cover them all with the absolute obedience of thy dear Son, that those sacrifices which I have offered may be accepted by thee, in and for the sacrifice of Jesus Christ offered upon the cross for me; for his sake, ease me of the burden of my sins, and give me grace that by the call of the Gospel I may rise from the slumber of sin into the newness of life.

Let me live according to those holy rules which thou hast this day prescribed in thy holy word; make me to know what is acceptable in thy holy word; make me to know what is acceptable in thy sight, and therein to delight, open the eyes of my understanding, and help me thoroughly to examine myself concerning my knowledge, faith and repentance, increase my faith, and direct me to the true object Jesus Christ the way, the truth and the life.

Bless O Lord, all the people of this land, from the highest to the lowest, particularly those whom thou has appointed to rule over us in church & state. Continue thy goodness to me this night. These weak petitions I humbly implore thee to hear accept and answer for the sake of thy Dear Son Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

- Monday Morning -

O eternal and everlasting God, I presume to present myself this morning before thy Divine majesty, beseeching thee to accept of my humble and hearty thanks, that it hath pleased thy great goodness to keep and preserve me the night past from all the dangers poor mortals are subject to, and has given me sweet and pleasant sleep, whereby I find my body refreshed and comforted for performing the duties of this day, in which I beseech thee to defend me from all perils of body and soul.

Direct my thoughts, words and work, wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the Lamb, and purge my heart by thy Holy Spirit, from the dross of my natural corruption, that I may with more freedom of mind and liberty of will serve thee, the everlasting God, in righteousness and holiness this day, and all the days of my life. Increase my faith in the sweet promises of the gospel; give me repentance from dead works; pardon my wanderings, & direct my thoughts unto thyself, the God of my salvation.

Teach me how to live in thy fear, labor in thy service, and ever to run in the ways of thy commandments; make me always watchful over my heart, that neither the terrors of conscience, the loathing of holy duties, the love of sin, nor an unwillingness to depart this life, may cast me into a spiritual slumber, but daily frame me more & more into the likeness of thy son, Jesus Christ, that living in thy fear, and dying in thy favor, I may in thy appointed time attain the resurrection of the just unto Eternal life.

Bless my family, friends & kindred; unite us all in praising & glorifying thee in all our works begun, continued, and ended, when we shall come to make our last account before thee blessed Saviour, who hath taught us thus to pray, 'Our Father, which art in Heaven...'

- Monday Evening -

Most Gracious Lord God, from whom proceedeth every good and perfect gift, I offer to thy divine majesty my unfeigned praise & thanksgiving for all thy mercies towards me. Thou madest me at first and hast ever since sustained the work of thy own hand; thou gavest thy Son to die for me; and hast given me assurance of salvation, upon my repentance and sincerely endeavoring to conform my life to his holy precepts and example. Thou art pleased to lengthen out to me the time of repentance and to move me to it by thy spirit and by the word, by thy mercies, and by thy judgments.

Out of a deepness of thy mercies, and by my own unworthiness, I do appear before thee at this time; I have sinned and done very wickedly, be merciful to me, O God, and pardon me for Jesus Christ sake; instruct me in the particulars of my duty, and suffer me not to be tempted above what thou givest me strength to bear. Take care, I pray thee, of my affairs and more and more direct me in thy truth, defend me from my enemies, especially my spiritual ones.

Suffer me not to be drawn from thee, by the blandishments of the world, carnal desires, the cunning of the devil, or deceitfulness of sin. Work in me thy good will and pleasure, and discharge my mind from all things that are displeasing to thee, of all ill will and discontent, wrath and bitterness, pride & vain conceit of myself, and render me charitable, pure, holy, patient and heavenly minded. Be with me at the hour of death; dispose me for it, and deliver me from the slavish fear of it, and make me willing and fit to die whenever thou shalt call me hence.

Bless our rulers in church and state. Bless O Lord the whole race of mankind, and let the world be filled with the knowledge of Thee and thy son Jesus Christ. Pity the sick, the poor, the weak, the needy, the widows and fatherless, and all that morn or are broken in heart, and be merciful to them according to their several necessities. Bless my friends and grant me grace to forgive my enemies as heartily as I desire forgiveness of Thee, my Heavenly Father. I beseech thee to defend me this night from all evil, and do more for me than I can think or ask, for Jesus Christ sake, in whose most holy name & words, I continue to pray, 'Our Father, which art in Heaven...'

- Tuesday Morning -

O Lord our God, most mighty and merciful Father, I thine unworthy creature and servant, do once more approach thy presence. Though not worthy to appear before thee, because of my natural corruptions, and the many sins and transgressions which I have committed against thy divine majesty; yet I beseech thee, for the sake of him in whom thou art well pleased, the Lord Jesus Christ, to admit me to render thee deserved thanks and praises for thy manifold mercies extended toward me, for the quiet rest & repose of the past night, for food, raiment, health, peace, liberty, and the hopes of a better life through the merits of thy dear son's bitter passion.

And O kind Father, continue thy mercy and favor to me this day, and ever hereafter; prosper all my lawful undertakings; let me have all my directions from thy Holy Spirit; and success from thy bountiful hand. Let the bright beams of thy light so shine into my heart, and enlighten my mind in understanding thy blessed word, that I may be enabled to perform thy will in all things, and effectually resist all temptations of the world, the flesh and the devil. Preserve and defend our rulers in church & state. Bless the people of this land, be a father to the fatherless, a comforter to the comfortless, a deliverer to the captives, and a physician to the sick. Let thy blessings guide this day and forever through J. C. in whose blessed form of prayer I conclude my weak petitions--'Our Father, which art in Heaven...'

- Tuesday Evening -

Most gracious God and heavenly father, we cannot cease, but must cry unto thee for mercy, because my sins cry against me for justice. How shall I address myself unto thee? I must with the publican stand and admire at thy great goodness, tender mercy, and long suffering towards me, in that thou hast kept me the past day from being consumed and brought to naught.

O Lord, what is man, or the son of man, that thou regardest him; the more days pass over my head, the more sins and iniquities I heap up against thee. If I should cast up the account of my good deeds done this day, how few and small would they be; but if I should reckon my miscarriages, surely they would be many and great. O, blessed Father, let thy son's blood wash me from all impurities, and cleanse me from the stains of sin that are upon me. Give me grace to lay hold upon his merits; that they may be my reconciliation and atonement unto thee,--That I may know my sins are forgiven by his death & passion.

Embrace me in the arms of thy mercy; vouchsafe to receive me unto the bosom of thy love, shadow me with thy wings, that I may safely rest under thy suspicion this night; and so into thy hands I commend myself, both soul and body, in the name of thy son, J. C., beseeching Thee, when this life shall end, I may take my everlasting rest with thee in thy heavenly kingdom.

Bless all in authority over us, be merciful to all those afflicted with thy cross or calamity, bless all my friends, forgive my enemies and accept my thanksgiving this evening for all the mercies and favors afforded me. Hear and graciously answer these my requests, and whatever else thou seeth needful grant us, for the sake of Jesus Christ in whose blessed name and words I continue to pray, Our Father, which art in Heaven...'

- A Prayer for Wednesday Morning -

Almighty and eternal Lord God, the great creator of heaven & earth, and the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; look down from heaven, in pity and compassion upon me thy servant, who humbly prostrate myself before thee, sensible of thy mercy and my own misery.

There is an infinite distance between thy glorious majesty and me, thy poor creature, the work of thy hand, between thy infinite power, and my weakness, thy wisdom, and my folly, thy eternal Being, and my mortal frame, but O Lord, I have set myself at a greater distance from thee by my sin and wickedness, and humbly acknowledge the corruption of my nature and the many rebellions of my life. I have sinned against heaven and before thee, in thought, word & deed; I have contemned thy majesty and holy laws. I have likewise sinned by omitting what I ought to done, and committing what I ought not. I have rebelled against light, despised thy mercies and judgments, and broken my vows and promises; I have neglected the means of Grace, and opportunities of becoming better; my iniquities are multiplies, and my sins are very great. I confess them, O Lord, with shame and sorrow, detestation and loathing, and desire to be vile in my own eyes, as I have rendered myself vile in thine.

I humbly beseech thee to be merciful to me in the free pardon of my sins, for the sake of thy dear Son, my only Saviour, J. C., who came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance; be pleased to renew my nature and write thy laws upon my heart, and help me to live, righteously, soberly, and godly in this evil world; make me humble, meek, patient and contented, and work in me the grace of thy Holy Spirit.

Prepare me for death and judgment, and let the thoughts thereof awaken me to a greater care and study to approve myself unto thee in well doing. Bless our rulers in church & state. Help all in affliction or adversity--give them patience and a sanctified use of their affliction, and in thy good time deliverance from them; forgive my enemies, take me unto thy protection this day, keep me in perfect peace, which I ask in the name & for the sake of Jesus. Amen.

- Wednesday Evening -

Holy and eternal Lord God who art the King of heaven, and the watchman of Israel, that never slumberest or sleepest, what shall we render unto thee for all thy benefits? Because thou hast inclined thine ears unto me, therefore will I call on thee as long as I live, from the rising of the sun to the going down of the same let thy name be praised. Among the infinite riches of thy mercy towards me, I desire to render thanks & praise for thy merciful preservation of me this day, as well as all the days of my life; and for the many other blessings & mercies spiritual & temporal which thou hast bestowed on me, contrary to my deserving. All these thy mercies call on me to be thankful and my infirmities & wants call for a continuance of thy tender mercies.

Cleanse my soul, O Lord, I beseech thee, from whatever is offensive to thee, and hurtful to me, and give me what is convenient for me. Watch over me this night, and give me comfortable and sweet sleep to fit me for the service of the day following. Let my soul watch for the coming of the Lord Jesus; let my bed put me in mind of my grave, and my rising from there of my last resurrection;

O heavenly Father, so frame this heart of mine that I may ever delight to live according to thy will and command, in holiness and righteousness before thee all the days of my life. Let me remember, O Lord, the time will come when the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall rise and stand before the judgment seat, and give an account of whatever they have done in the body, and let me so prepare my soul, that I may do it with joy and not with grief.

Bless the rulers and people of this and forget not those who are under any affliction or oppression. Let thy favor be extended to all my relations, friends and all others who I ought to remember in my prayer and hear me I beseech thee for the sake of my dear Redeemer in whose most holy words, I further pray, 'Our Father, which art in Heaven...'


From William J. Johnson George Washington, the Christian (New York: The Abingdon Press, New York & Cincinnati, 1919), pp. 24-35.



There is only one life to live...  Live in such a way as not to have any regrets...

Only what is done for Christ will last for all eternity!




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.”



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.  Contact David West at president@enochnj.org.


*** 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 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.

As you know, there are many growing needs for homeschoolers and we feel testing is an important one.  Homeschool Testing Services knows there are many opinions on testing.  We believe testing should not define a child, but it is important to use it as a tool so we can learn more about our children and where they stand academically. 

We would love to help you meet this need.  You are able to go to our website to learn more: www.homeschooltestingservices.com. 

Would you consider allowing our website link to be listed on your page as a resource to walk alongside families that choose to homeschool? 

 Some questions many families have that we’re open to answering:

Why should I test?

There are many reasons: 

            First, your state may require it.  Homeschool Testing Services can meet that need.

            Second, you are able to use it as a tool to gage where your child is with other children their age. 

            Third, it will teach them test taking skills that are needed to better prepare them for college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT.

What tests do you offer?

We offer the CTP (1st-10th grades) and Stanford.  The Stanford can be completed either online (grades 3rd-12th), in the comforts of your own home, on your computer or onsite (grades K-12th), where your child will go to a nearby location with other students and test in a classroom setting.

When should we test?

Homeschool Testing Services is available from February through mid-June.  Most families test between the months of April and mid-June as an end of the year assessment.

I would be more than willing to talk to you about this more if you have any questions.  Please see my signature below if you’d like to call me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Lyceum Scholars Program at Clemson University, is a new and unique $10,000 scholarship for incoming freshmen to study the moral, political, and economic foundations of a free society.  We have found that homeschool students are excellent candidates for the Lyceum Scholars Program and many of our current Scholars come from a homeschool background.  

Lyceum Scholars take eight classes together as an intellectual cohort during their undergraduate career. They read the Great Books of Western Civilization and discuss timeless questions such as:

·  What makes a society free? 

·  What makes a society prosperous? 

·  What are the principles of the American Founding?

The Lyceum Scholars Program recreates the substance and value of a traditional liberal arts education, which is sadly missing from many of today’s colleges. 

More information about the Program is available on 
our website and students may apply here.
