Homeschool~ Created for Work



Practical Insights for Young Men~ Bob Schultz

I purchased this book last year at the Homeschool convention. I have 2 wonderful boys that I want to become godly, hard working men someday! As parents, Wayne and I have been trying to instill the value of a hard worker. Today we see so much laziness in boys and men! I want my boys to strive to meet God's standards to please Him when they put the effort in to do a job. I am so thankful that my husband is such a extraordinary example of a hard worker! He is faithful to a job, and always gives his best. I always tell my kids that their dad can do anything....I can always count on him, and so can his employers.

On the back of the book

All young men should be on the road to developing a healthy attitude towards work. Honest productive work is the backbone of strong families and blessed nations.

A few highlight of the book
~ Full of Scripture truths (KJV)
~After every chapter there is a question section.
~ Austen is on PG 103 of 181
Example:
Chapter Title 'Sidestepping Discouragement'
Discouragement defeats a worker. It grows from roots of laziness, lack of vision, and selfishness. Discouraged people think too much about themselves and to little about God.

Verse: Nehemiah 4:6

Another good book along the same lines is "Created for Work." I can't remember the author but you could probably find it with a google search. :)

As a former high school math teacher who taught using Saxon math books from algebra 1/2 to calculus for more than a dozen years, I can assure you that John Saxon's math books remain the best math textbooks on the market today.

I have a list of the editions that will be good textbooks for another ten to twenty years whether acquired new or used.

If your readers currently use - or are considering using - Saxon math books, please visit: www.usingsaxon.com.

Loved this book and we are (too slowly) going through his BOYHOOD AND BEYOND. I think the author just died last year if I remember right! Take Care,
