Our Homeschooling Zoom Conference a month ago was a huge success. As a follow-up, today there is a whole afternoon and evening of live Zoom talks, resources and panel discussions.

I (Steve Ray) will join three other homeschooling dads for a live panel discussion today, August 6 at 6 PM Eastern time.

Even though we finished homeschooling quite a while ago since our youngest child is now 28 years old, we were pioneers in the movement and risked jail time to do what we knew was best. I will share a lot of ideas for fathers as I now watch my 18 grandkids being homeschooled.

Join us for free, but you can also purchase the Premium Pass to access ALL the talks, resources and materials from the whole conference and today’s sessions. Click the image below or HERE.

Socialism is so Hot Right Now! Must be the Solution

February 7, 2020

Millennials have not lived through some of the rough times, have been kept from the truth of socialist experiments and countries and have been taught by buffoons in their universities that socialism is the answer… Really???

Passover Lamb: A True Story

April 12, 2019

Contributed by my son Jesse Ray a while ago but worthy of reposting… I arrived on the scene with my gun and stoically loaded in some self-defense rounds (although I was clearly not in danger). I did not lavish the idea of slaughtering a lamb, but my friend and new-farmer, Pat, called and sheepishly asked for […]

Pope says, Turn off TV, put down smart phones, turn off computers and eat meals intimately together.

November 15, 2015

I couldn’t agree more. We didn’t have these gadgets when we raised our kids. We got rid of television and opted to read books. My father was a radical when he raised me – he refused to get us kids a TV but read stories and books to us every night after we all ate […]

We Need More Heroes: Archbishop Cordilone’s Letter which Brought him MUCH Grief

March 16, 2015

It is too bad that a letter stating that Catholic schools must teach according to the truth and morals of the Catholic Church should bring condemnation and threats to an archbishop. Welcome to America in the 21st century. *************************************** Dissenting from Catholic Teaching or the Natural Moral Law in a Catholic High School does not […]
