It's hard sometimes to know what to do and can seem like such a daunting and overwhelming task to know what we can do to help make any sort of difference. I try so hard to not get discouraged. It can be difficult but I have hope and here is why.
I truly believe the hand the rocks the cradle rules the world. I am a Mother! I am raising our future. I train, inspire, love and help learn. I never forget that the most important work I do, that will make the most difference, is in my own home.
It has become a family tradition to read the Declaration of Independence to our children on the 4th of July. But it doesn't stop there. We talk about it on a regular basis. We read from the Constitution. We discuss it and pull it out when we have questions about certain things and if they are "Constitutional."
We learn about the Founding Fathers and read the stories about them. We teach our children that these were men whom God raised up for this very purpose. We all our striving to learn correct freedom principles. I'll just list some of our favorite resources then on to a fun, very simple 4th of July recipe!
- The Proper Role of Government both the book and the video.
- Man, Freedom, and Government (a perfect short video that will teach freedom principles in a way a child can understand)
- The 5000 year leap
- Uncle Eric Books
- The Real George Washington - Thomas Jefferson - Ben Franklin
- The Law
- The Bulletproof George Washington
- Of course the Original Documents!
God Bless America!
