As we approach another school year, many parents may be considering homeschooling for the first time and may still have some questions as to how to approach the process. How do you know what grade level your child is at in the state's eyes? How do homeschoolers participate in extra-curricular activities at a local school? What information do I need to communicate to the local school board? Friday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Home School Legal Defense Association consultant and long-time homeschooler, Vicki Bentley will join us to answer these and other questions about homeschooling your child.
The Hebrew word for watchman in the Bible means to “keep, guard, watch, and preserve”. The Lord models for men to be the watchmen of their family—for them to protect their wives and family as they seek to deepen their understanding of the strengthens and weaknesses of those they love. Licensed professional counselor, Jeff Bercaw joins Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Friday to talk about how men are to protect their family spiritually, physically, relationally and financially, patterning these means of protection after the ways in which God protects us.
Join us in July for the Mornings with Eric and Brigitte Book Club! People like to say, "Prayer works." But what does that mean? Prayer works for what? Getting the answers from God that we want so much? While God certainly cares for your deepest needs, Skye Jethani wants you to know that prayer is so much more than a two-way transaction with a heavenly vending machine. As you read this book, this author wants to take you deeper into what Jesus, the lover of your soul, had to say about talking with God.
