Ten Principles of True Education 2018

The Ten Principles of True Education is for those who want their hearts and homes to be ready for the soon coming of Jesus and want to understand the meaning of True Education from the Scriptures and the Spirit of Prophecy.

In this class we will cover:

  1.  Character Building-The Purpose of True Education
  2. The Bible the Educator-The Textbook
  3. The Master Teacher-Methods
  4. Illustrations-Remember
  5. The Underteacher-Teacher, Student and the Mind
  6. Physical Culture-Mental, Spiritual, Physical
  7. Teach Truth-Books, Drama, Dress, Finance, Music, Toys and Children’s Play
  8. Obedience and Discipline-The Character Qualities
  9. Teaching the Academics from the Bible-Health, Math, Music, Nature, H/G/P, Language, Voice
  10. The Higher Course-Continuing Education

After the class we will take the rest of the year to implement what we have learned.  Our ultimate goal is that each family in the class will be able to claim this promise:

One well-ordered, well-disciplined family tells more in behalf of Christianity than all the sermons that can be preached. Such a family gives evidence that the parents have been successful in following God’s directions, and that their children will serve Him in the church. Their influence grows; for as they impart, they receive to impart again. The father and mother find helpers in their children, who give to others the instruction received in the home. The neighborhood in which they live is helped, for in it they have become enriched for time and for eternity. The whole family is engaged in the service of the Master; and by their godly example, others are inspired to be faithful and true to God in dealing with His flock, His beautiful flock. {AH 32.1}

Testimony Tuesday

This testimony is from Shardae and we thank you, Shardae, for sharing your experience with us here!

I have been using SonLight for about four years now. I am a single parent and fairly poor. When my family became Adventist the Lord lead me through the Bible and SOP to homeschool. I did not immediately respond but the Lord was merciful. Once I decided to homeschool and follow the Lord’s leading, some very important friends of mine introduced us to SonLight.

My friends sent us a PDF of the curriculum with the catalogue. I was so thankful and excited. I readily applied every thing we were reading. So, after a year or so, I was going into my son’s room and I hear him reading(age 6). I was shocked but skeptical. I asked him what he was doing. He replied that he was reading. I was like.. not really are you? He answered yes. So I took a book we have not read and told him to read it. He took the book and read it and as he came to a unfamiliar word, he paused and sounded it out. I was like,” What, really! You can read!” To let you in on my son’s history, he was born with brain and lung problems (6 month pregnancy, premature), diagnosed with Autism at 5 years old, labeled that he will not develop as other children do who are his age, and he will have learning disabilities. He also went through some very traumatizing abuse at 4 years of age which he does not remember. An psycologist told me his brain may have block this event for his sanity. Thus his brain and nerves have had some great distress. But, yet, in this event of home schooling and reading daily from the Word of God and SonLight, he learned how to read. Plus, a bonus was that he taught the children in the shelter we lived at every story from the Family Bible Lessons we read. He would share it so naturally I would be amazing at his vocabulary.  I, too, had to read (Parent Readings for the week) to strengthen my own vocabulary. God has truly blessed us through this curriculum. I am glad it is free!

New Release: Seer of Patmos

The Story of the Seer of Patmos.

“The Story of the Seer of Patmos is sent forth on its mission of love with earnest prayer to God that it may point all who read to the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world.  May the Bible student find treasure, the skeptics find ground for faith, and the thoughtless become acquainted with the thoughts of God by reading this book,” quote by S. N. Haskell

SonLight Education Ministry offers you a Student Study Guide with a Teacher’s Study Guide  to work through the book, The Story of the Seer of Patmos by S. N. Haskell (purchase elsewhere), and absorb many of the details that are hidden within.   This book is needed for 12th Grade Bible.  It also goes along with the H/G/P Historical Periods of the World According to the Bible course.  It also makes for a great study for family worship or church study groups.
