Toxic (TBB)

The “TBB” in the name of this post means that it is part of The Big Box series. If you’re new to Scarlet Letters, read the introductory post to see what the Big Box is all about.

Last April, I attended MASSHope, New England’s largest homeschool convention. The convention began on a Friday morning, and I scheduled my Big Box article, A Home School Vision of Victory, to post automatically after I left my hotel room in the morning. When I returned from a long and tiring day in the indoctrination room teen track (read more about that here), I found that Scarlet Letters had received over a hundred hits, which at the time was a new high.

Hopefully, this will further one of Scarlet Letters’ main goals: giving Vision Forum’s potential customers a second opinion before they buy. Continue reading

A Home School Vision of Victory (TBB)

The “TBB” in the name of this post means that it is part of The Big Box series. If you’re new to Scarlet Letters, read the introductory post to see what The Big Box is all about.

It’s appropriate that I should be reviewing A Home School Vision of Victory this week, as I’m currently attending New England’s largest Christian homeschool convention and in fact, I’m posting this review from my hotel room. Unfortunately, Doug Phillips and Vision Forum won’t be making an appearance. But that doesn’t mean we can’t crack open the Big Box and take a peek inside… Continue reading
