The year 2006 marks our 25th anniversary in serving the needs of homeschooling families. Time has gone by in a flash. Technology has developed beyond all of our imaginations. We can barely even remember our first desktops. Floppy disks, dot-matrix printers and paste-ups all had their short lives and have flown away. We are now networked, cell phone connected and online. We can communicate instantaneously . . . and endlessly.
All the electronic and technical razzle-dazzle aside, however, we still realize that the message remains the same. Our primary concern is to help moms and dads present Jesus Christ and His world, His history and His creation in the most orderly and effective manner.
With the Lord a thousand years is as one day and a day is as a thousand years. Time and its passage are part of God's creation order. All history is arrayed in front of the sovereign God at once and is subject to His perfect control. This particular 25-year span that He has given us has been, from our perspective, a wonderfully sustained blessing. Several people have passed through our organization, but our basic staff has remained. We are favored with outstanding and dedicated people throughout!
A special point of our satisfaction has been the part we were able to play in helping families grow closer. Many of our enrolled parents have told us about greatly strengthened relationships with their children and an increased well-being and confidence with their young people. The energy of love that is present in the homeschooling enterprise brings this about when it is coupled with the love of Christ.
We look thankfully back. We're grateful for the gadgetry that makes our writing, editing and upgrading lives much easier, and thankful for the growing supply of faithful families that undertake the profound obligations of educating their covenant children. We look ahead with thanks as well. Future opportunities are many and varied. Our desire and our aim is to continue to encourage families who want a strong, classical approach to learning, combined with a God-honoring, reformed world view.
