Presentations

“Character Instruction - A Critical Part of Every Class”

In education, the principles of good character are essential to all disciplines. In three parts, What is Character?, How is Character Developed? and Character through the Disciplines, we teach the fundamentals of character-building within the teaching of subjects from History to Language, Science to Math. Without inculcating character in each subject, the knowledge is vain.

“Discipline: No Place for Anger”

Discipline is not anger, anger is not discipline: Why anger management is a key to discipline and educational excellence, even before formal education begins, and how to discern and exercise both discipline and character training without using or fostering anger.

“Education in Early America”

The materials, methods, sources and flavor of early American education: A Biblical foundation, and a logical conclusion. What WAS the strength of American exceptionalism?

“Educational Choices”

Public Schools, Private Schools, Home Schooling, Vouchers, Tax Credits and School Choice - A confusing array of purported “choices” confront American parents today. What are the REAL choices? What are the consequences and hidden traps in the various avenues promoted so heavily in “conservative” circles, and where do we find faith and truth?

“Fundamental Economics: How DOES One Keep Accurate Accounts?”

A fundamental function of society and life: balancing a checking account, keeping a budget, making plans for financial stability and retirement, what are the building blocks? How do you teach economics and keep kids awake?

Why one form of government is Biblically and morally superior to others: The Republic and the rule of law, and the historical ramifications of mob rule. Learn what the Bible teaches about the form and function of government, democracy, and the citizen’s responsibility.

“That Every Man Be Armed: The Second Amendment in the 21st Century”

A popular study of the practical and historical comparisons and statements of our founders, the peoples of Europe, and the differences between the American colonists and their European brothers and sisters in the 16, 17, and 1800’s, and the principles of self defense that remain valid today.

Publications

“An Answer to the Violence”

As a father of two current college students, and personal friend of a Virginia Tech student the news stopped me in mid-stride and brought a knot to my stomach. The toll mounted, ending with thirty-three human beings dead, another twenty-eight injured, according to an April 20th CNN report. (1). Others in our offices spoke of that same feeling, and many of us began to pray for the victims and loved ones. The controversy over delays in communications and the decisions and actions of the administration and law enforcement may never be resolved. Right or wrong, each decision will be forever magnified by the events that unfolded.

“The Superhighway to Serfdom”

Many of our most powerful national leaders are deliberately dismantling the America that we love. The North American Union (NAU), Agenda 21, The United Nations, and other internationalist threats to our national sovereignty have become a personal and imminent threat to individual Americans, evem as illegal immigration is mushrooming into an economic and social nightmare. Meanwhile, elements of our government, rather than moving to solve these problems have actually helped to create them and are exacerbating them. ....

The Talon 2006

“Stonewall - A Review of John Dwyer's Excellent Book”

A tremendous lesson in faith, duty, honor, and dedication. I urge people to read "Stonewall" by John J. Dwyer. The main four reasons were: (1) This book gave light and encouragement to people to live the sold-out Christian life. Jackson and many of his contemporaries, very notably, Margaret Junkin Preston and her sister, lived as Christians with monumental faith and led exemplary lives,under tremendous strain and sacrifice. (2) The book teaches the difficult lessons of total dedication to Christian manhood, courage, duty, honor, and loyalty, and clarifies the link between faith in Jesus, and the willingness to fight, die, and even kill in times of war for what you believe is right. (3) The book promotes a love of good literature. Junkin's poetic outpourings from the heart, and the wonderfully descriptive language are classical examples. Some may find the book difficult to start. Wade in and become immersed in the style, and you will be hooked, as all of us have become conditioned to 21st Century "sound byte" language. The unabashed love affair of the author and characters with the poetry and prose of Miss Junkin, and the elaborate word-pictures of Jackson, his life, time and surroundings, brings a jaded reader back in touch with some of the "finer things" of being human, Christian, and literate. (4) The book puts life and living in perspective. With all the frailties and uncertainties, and the almost unbroken string of tragedies in Jackson's life, the strong theme of faith's triumph over all is a model for all of us to follow in keeping the straight and narrow path...whatever the consequences. Even among Christians, there is little support for those who choose to stand and fight, and for the citizen-soldier, there are very few examples in this day and age to emulate. This is a great one.
