This page contains links to home making, decorating, organizing, and management sites, as well as christian family, child rearing, and godly parenting sites. You will also find sites about gardening and country living. I am just starting to collect Home and Family links; if you have personal favorites, please send the URL my way. :-) Whats coming: I hope to type up and post our familys simple plan that we used to train our children in obedience and self-discipline. The plan consists of six simple household and family rules that children begin learning at age one, which covers all the bases.
The Godly Home Gardening and Country Living
The Godly Home
At Home Mothers
This quote by Hannah Whitall Smith (author of The Christians Secret of a Happy Life) sums up the philosophy of At Home Mothers magazine: To be a mother is the greatest vocation in the world. No being has a position of such great power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her is necessarily committed the making of the nations citizens.
The Catalog Site
Links to every mail-order catalog imaginable, including gardening, home improvement, educational toys, books, discounted kids clothes, and anything else you might need to find a source for.
The Compleat Mother
The breastfeeding, childbirth, and pregnancy online magazine.
A nice page of links from a homeschooling mom.
Dead Doctors Dont Lie
Okay, we admit it: we use alternative medicine, and we take collodial minerals to help our bodies function as God intended. (Homeschoolers and Christians are already going against societal norms, so why not take the full plunge? A medical establishment exists that is motivated by profit, not wellness, just as an educational establishment exists that is motivated by profit, not learning.) If you want to know why, then meet Dr. Wallach, a vetrinarian and a medical doctor, author of Dead Doctors Dont Lie, and Nobel Prize in Medicine nominee for his work in mineral deficiencies and their effect on degenerative disease. But be warned -- you will get it straight from the horses mouth with Dr. Wallach.

Once a Month Cooking
Make the most efficient use of your time: learn how to cook for a day but feed your family for a month. I just love getting dinner out of the freezer after a long day of classical homeschooling, when Im too tired to cook from scratch.
Thoughts for Young Men

The Managers of Their Homes website. Steve and Terri Maxwell share: The biggest problem weve found [to homeschooling]: how do you find the time to do it?!? While it's true that a fool learns from his own mistakes, a wise man learns from the mistakes of others. Our goal is to use this web site to share with you some of the mistakes and triumphs that we have been through over the last 14 years of homeschooling. Hopefully, you will learn from our mistakes, be encouraged by our successes, and come away with a desire to schedule your days to achieve your absolute best.
