I came over after reading your comment at inashoe. I stumbled across her blog last week when the first homeschooling post went up and have been checking in daily to see where she would take any future conversations.

Anywho, all that to say that I admire what you believe and the way you said it. As a Christian and a young woman who has/is dedicating her life to the service of education and the children most often forgotten (those in juvenile detention and mental health hospitals), it is disheartening to hear people say that what I am doing is perpetuating sin. I don't see it that way and I'm glad there are others out there who are willing to stand up for their beliefs and stand against "putting something there that isn't written" in Bible interpretation.

All that to say, thank you for your input on her blog; it made me feel less out of place and more comfortable with my decision.

God Bless.
