Critical Skills Your Child Needs to be Successful by Jonathan Brush

Yes, there’s a whole bunch of complicated academics that needs to be done before graduation!

Bad news: Most of the actual “stuff” your child learns they will never use. I haven’t used algebra since my final exam on the subject in college  (sophomore year).

Good news: If you teach your child that academic stuff and in the process teach them how to manage their time, manage their tasks, use their creativity, and solve problems it really doesn’t matter what their grades are, they will have the core skills they need to be successful.

If you manage to teach them responsibility and how to build great relationships as well they are going to be successful and make a difference in the world. Make sure that no matter what you’re teaching, you’re teaching that stuff.

The rest is just details.

Standing on the Solid Rock: How to Radically Transform Your Family Through Family Bible Study by Jonathan Brush

Giving this session reminded me of how important daily family Bible study is – and how that habit had really slipped in our house the last few months.

I came home with that reminder and tried to really focus on regaining some of the consistency that we used to have in doing this.

We’re in the Gospel of John right now. I haven’t had a perfect record since the conference, but I’m doing a lot better than I was before!

Just a few days after my return the passage I read aloud sparked a family conversation that lasted more than an hour. Once again I was reminded of how God works through His Word, despite my often imperfect efforts.

The Importance of Finding, Building and Keeping Great Relationships by Jonathan Brush

The weekend after the Christian Heritage Conference...

...I did a series of five sessions on this topic at a student event. The conversations at that event really reminded me of this fact: Figuring out relationship basics is a major challenge for a lot of people in our time, especially young people. I was also reminded that the relationship challenges come in an infinite variety, just like people. There is no magic advice or instructions that will solve all relationships issues.

I’m convinced that the solution is to focus on the basics: The foundational principles that are true no matter what. If you understand those then you have a real head start on figuring out the details for your specific situation.

In this session at the Christian Heritage Conference I suggested that there is a foundational principle that relationships follow this formula: TVC/T+E = Great Relationships. Trust, Values, Commitment over Time and Experiences = Great Relationships.

Every good relationship is built on trust (often earned through transparency), similar values (often based on a shared vision), and commitment (often built through good communication).

When these things are built and tested over time and shared experience the result is great relationships.

Sharing the Impact

Dear Christian Heritage Family,
 
More and more often we have been receiving stories from people just like you, who are seeking to glorify God and are praying for and/or working hard to raise up the next God-honoring generation.
  
We want to bring these stories of hope and encouragement to you whenever we have permission, believing it will inspire you in your day to day calling as much as it spurs us on in our calling to serve you.  ENJOY!

  
Not having children or having the opportunity to homeschool, I was impressed when my friends Steve and Cheryl invited us to the Overlake event Friday, April 27.
  
It restored my belief that there is definitely hope for coming generations! 

The music was exceptional. I used to play piano and have taught. It was difficult for me to evaluate each presentation.

 

I trust that Christian Heritage will further prosper in its program; frankly, I feel that my tax dollars would be better spent with Christian Heritage than with the State of Washington!

I enjoyed Steve Scheibner's presentation as well with his balance of humor and common sense approach to education.

Best wishes to a worthwhile organization,
Gerald Hubert


THIS.  This is exactly why we do what we do! And remember that YOUR determined efforts are raising children who inspire and impact others for God's Glory!  Be encouraged and keep up the good work!

Rock Identification Made Easy, by Patrick Nurre

So many of you who attended this workshop told me how much your kids love rocks.

All the kids who attended this session definitely bore that out!

And if your kids love rocks, what a great teachable moment!

I would encourage you to take the principles that I gave you and get out in the dirt and discover the amazing stories that are written in our rocks. They tell us of what has happened to our earth, and direct us right back to the Bible to understand why we see such catastrophe in our world.

So with that, happy rockhounding!

Has Radiometric Dating Poisoned Your Faith? by Patrick Nurre

Thank you to all of you who attended my session!

Radiometric dating can be a tough topic to handle, but with just a few pointers, you will see that you do not have to give in in this area of apologetics. The Bible needs to be, first and foremost, our guide in all things. Once you understand the assumptions that surround radiometric dating, it removes the cloud that can easily envelop us in doubt about the Lord and His Word.

So, just a brief summary....

Radioactivity is science. Radiometric dating is not.

The four faulty assumptions that are made about radiometric dating (from which long earth ages are derived):

  1. The original amount of parent element is known.
  2. The decay rate through the years has remained the same.
  3. The daughter element present in the rock is due to the decay of the parent element.
  4. No parent or daughter elements have leached in or out of the rock.

Removing these assumptions from the equation opens up a whole new realm of possible thinking as regards the age of the earth. The Flood becomes the great interrupter in time, and the reason that our world looks as it does.

I hope this helps you in your walk with the Lord, and that you will see that you can absolutely take Him at His word!

National Day of Prayer – May 3, 2018

“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” 1 Timothy 2:1-6 (NKJV)

Tomorrow millions of Americans will gather across the country to pray.  As Christians we are no stranger to the idea of prayer, or at least we ought not to be! Yet sadly, we all too often fail to do that which is so simple.

It is truly amazing that Yahweh, the God of heaven and earth, would commune with us!  God has communicated truth about himself to us through his written word – and we in response to this truth and in light of all He has accomplished for us, offer up prayers to Him.  These prayers are a sweet smelling aroma to God and pleasing to Him!

God’s word exhorts us to pray.  In 1 Timothy, Paul calls believers to pray for a few specific things and we at Christian Heritage would like to encourage you to join us tomorrow as we pray together for the following:

  • Pray for the Leaders of our Nation, States, Counties and Cities.
  • Pray that those leaders would fear the Lord and govern according to His statutes.
  • Pray that godly men and women would be raised up to serve in these offices.
  • Offer up thanksgiving for the freedoms we enjoy! Freedom to worship, pray and homeschool.
  • Pray for our pastors, teachers and other church leaders.
  • Thank God that we are able to lead quiet and peaceable lives!
  • Pray for Christian Heritage that Gods work though CH would continue in a powerful way.
  • Pray for each other in the homeschool community as we desire to honor God in our families!
  • Pray that God would do a mighty work in the hearts of many, that men and women everywhere might repent and turn to our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ!
May God bring about revival and reformation in the hearts of many, like only He is able to do!

“Therefore, my beloved brothers…

 

Have you felt the growing tension this year?

Truth is no longer accepted as truth. History is being revised. Foundational freedoms and protections now stand in question...

Even attending church safely can no longer be taken for granted!

The war between good and evil is being waged everywhere, yet for those of us who know and trust the Lord, 1 Corinthians 15:58 sets our focus,


“…stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”


It is a great blessing to labor in the Lord with you! Your partnership with us at Christian Heritage is critical in building a strong upcoming generation.

Thank you for loving others well!

Laboring together makes the difference!

Nurturing, training and developing a culture of love and service in your family – pointing each relationship, each individual heart to Jesus – is no easy task.

That’s why gathering together is so important!  And why we at Christian Heritage work hard to provide meaningful events and resources...

  • To enjoy fellowship with other families.
  • To gain tools and encouragement that will strengthen you in your calling.
  • And, to help you feel inspired that what you’re doing is important, worthwhile and has a much higher purpose than you can ever imagine.

 

We love our Christian Heritage community! Just listen to one new person’s experience at a Regional Homeschool Kick Off Picnic…

 


“My heart is full, today I went to a homeschool picnic not knowing ANYONE and I left that place feeling so refreshed. It’s so amazing how true God’s word is when he advises us to gather with those of the same spirit. Watching all the children roam free and playing till dark and women gathering together to talk about the Lord and not about things that are meaningless. That was so refreshing! Most mamas had 6+ blessings and I just loved the peace that they carried. I learned so much not only about homeschooling but how beautiful it is to gather with those who know God’s word and live it.” – a first year homeschooling parent


 

Your love for Jesus shines brightly!

Grateful Hearts Moved to Action!

Two Young Women Gave Back this Summer!

What a heart of gratitude looks like...

 

When Sarah Booy and Heather VanGelder began thinking about all of the wonderful events they had attended with Christian Heritage – conferences and picnics filled with fellowship with other families, inspirational teaching and great opportunities to grow in their love for Jesus,... their heart of gratitude was stirred.

Moved to action and the full support of their families, they planned an event for a lovely summer day in August.


“We have been blessed by Christian Heritage, and want to bless CH by organizing this fundraiser and encouraging fellowship among other like minded families!”


When it was all said and done, the two awesome young women raised over $2,000 for Christian Heritage, blessed MANY families who were able to attend and answered the praise they received,


 “We couldn’t have done it without the support of our families’ and all of you there! All the glory goes to God!!”


This kind of service minded partnership is what we at Christian Heritage pray for in our upcoming generation… and YOUR partnership is just as vital!

More than ever, we must raise up the next generation of godly men and women who will faithfully follow Christ as a light in an increasingly dark world.

Your help is needed …and to be sure, the world is watching!
