One of the greatest challenges we face as Christian homeschoolers is teaching our kids a philosophy based on the Bible. This is The Homeschool Sanity Show, the episode where guest Elizabeth Urbanowicz gives us easy-to-implement ideas for imparting a biblical worldview.
Hey, homeschoolers! One of the things that surprised me about homeschooling was how challenging it can be to teach a biblical philosophy. There are no other subjects that have so many competing teachers. When I teach my child that 7 times 8 is 56, I can be confident that she won't read a book or see a show that denies it. Yet when I teach my child that people are born into sin because of the fall of humanity in the Garden of Eden, I know that he will encounter numerous voices that say not only is that not true, but it's child abuse for me to teach it.
I have addressed this topic on the podcast before. But I found Elizabeth to be equally delightful and practical. She is the founder of Foundation Worldview–a wealth of information for Christian adults as they equip kids to live out their lives for Jesus.

Have a happy homeschool week!
