Ray Notgrass

Yes, You Have to Study History, and Here's Why
If your children ever ask, "Do we have to study history?" Ray Notgrass offers answers for them--and for you. Using inspiring stories and vivid examples, Ray illustrates why it is important to know and understand history so we can live well today.

How Christianity Has Changed the World
It's so obvious that we often miss it. People who follow Jesus have been changing the world for good for almost two thousand years. As Jesus changes us and changes our relationship with God, He leads us to live differently and to see the world and other people differently. Ray Notgrass surveys how people following the way of Christ have impacted the world's perceptions of morality, the value of children, business, labor, helping the poor, politics, and other areas of human society.

Give Me Your Heart: The Message of Proverbs
The Book of Proverbs is a father's wisdom shared with his son. It offers practical advice about how to think and act successfully in relationships, a family, business, and the community. A child has the calling to honor and respect his or her parents, and parents have the calling to be honorable and respectable. The hearts of the parents and the child must be given to God and to each other. Ray Notgrass shares key lessons from this book of divine wisdom.

The Joy of Teaching History from a Christian Worldview
Veteran homeschool mom Charlene Notgrass has found great joy learning, teaching, and writing history from a Christian worldview. We need the wisdom and knowledge God has given us in His Word to help us understand the events of the past and to know how to live in the present and the future. Teaching history from a Christian worldview encourages children to have a Christ-like heart for the world. Charlene shares practical ideas and encouragement to help you achieve this goal in your family.

Homeschool Without Fear
The voices we, as homeschooling parents, hear and think we hear from other homeschoolers, public and private schools, and the world at large can make us fearful. Worries can swallow up our confidence and even our original intention to make God's truth the center of our homeschool. This workshop will help you remember that God equips you with everything you need to homeschool without fear.
