The world economy is cracking. We're heading into a Category 7 hurricane when it comes to the socio-political and economic conditions of the world. Homeschooling moms are heading off to Congress to save the nation. These are critical times in which godly leaders will be needed most urgently, but the pickin's are slim these days. Not many young men receive the male mentorship they need. Not many are emerging from the ranks of homeschooling with the willingness to deny themselves and die for Christ—really lay down their lives for the cause of liberty and righteousness. With a few exceptions, we are doing a lousy job cultivating godly leaders in our families and churches. We get too many Madison Cawthornes, an embarrassment to the homeschool ranks.
Homeschooled himself in the 1960's and 70's, Kevin Swanson and his wife, Brenda, are now homeschooling their five children. Since graduating from his homeschool and then serving as student body president of a large west coast university, he has gone on to other leadership positions in corporate management, church, and other non-profits.
