3.1 Christian Resources: Free Christian Modesty Audio Series

Pastor Jeff Pollard is the speaker in this free, 12-part audio series on “Christian Modesty and the Public Undressing of America.” The subject can be just as hard to find material on as sermons on tithing. His effort and care in study is apparent, as is his care in addressing the subject discreetly. Pastors, parents, and teachers will be challenged; the messages will help you wisely lead those for whom the Lord has made you responsible.

3.4 Science: Household Science

A homeschooler contacted HEAV with news of a fledgling website based on simple science with household objects. There’s just a handful now, but encouragement will go a long way here.

3.5 Arts and Crafts: DIY Art Frames from Magazines

The photo tutorial shows clearly how to complete this fun project and wind up with a very attractive frame. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a picture frame for a homeschool picture day?

3.6 History: Encyclopedia Virginia

The Encyclopedia Virginia (EV), an online academic collection of all things Virginian, is an incredible resource produced by Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. In the opening paragraph of their “About” page they say,

“EV publishes topical and biographical entries written by scholars, edited to be accessible to a general audience, and vigorously fact checked. Entries are accompanied by primary documents and media objects, including images, audio and visual clips, and links to Google Street View tours of historic sites.”

During February (Black History Month) try looking up “Ft. Monroe during the Civil War” (it’s very easy to do via their alphabetic index).
