Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.Romans 12:13
I just received this email from the excellent classical homeschooling publishing house Roman Roads Media, and thought I would pass it on to any homeschoolers who happen to read my blog:
The Coronavirus is creating new challenges and needs for parents every day. Here are some ways Roman Roads Press can help.
1. Has the Coronavirus created a need for homeschool curriculum in the midst of economic hardship? If so, we would like to help! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know what curriculum would be an immediate blessing but financial hardship to purchase. If we publish it directly we can provide a full scholarship covering the curriculum. In other cases, we can extend a deep discount. This is not reserved for extreme cases – we want parents who would otherwise not purchase due to financial consideration but have an immediate need to reach out.
2. Take advantage of our “Redeem the Time” discount. This is a great time to purchase any of our curriculum! Valid until the end of today, use coupon code ‘redeemthetime‘ to receive 25% off everything at romanroadsmedia.com!
3. Are you a teacher? Kepler Education is in the process of preparing a series of free webinars and other resources for teachers, with specific training for teaching (perhaps suddenly) online. Sign up HERE to receive more information via email, or HERE to follow the FB updates.
And on this St. Patrick’s Day, I leave you with the refrain of St. Patrick’s Breastplate (video link),
“Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me. Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.”
If you have any gently-used education materials, this would be an excellent opportunity to pass them on to any homeschoolers in need this year. I am already passing my books on to a family with challenging finances, who then plan to pass it on to a family in the military that is trying to stretch their homeschooling budget over several kids’ needs.
