    Fight Back: The LGBT’s Brazen Partnership with the National Education Association with Suzanne Gallagher

    Fight Back: The LGBT’s Brazen Partnership with the National Education Association with Suzanne Gallagher

    The politicization of the public school system is in full swing. As Tucker Carlson noted last week, “You would have to hate children in order to sexualize them. Because sexualizing children screws them up for life. Ask anyone to whom it has happened, period,” Carlson added. “No one should put up with this. No parent should put up with this for one second, no matter what the law says. Your duty, your moral duty, is to defend your children. This is an attack on your children and you should fight back.” SHOW NOTES

    Thoughts on the Latest Headlines and a Parenting Minute: Permissive Parenting

    Thoughts on the Latest Headlines and a Parenting Minute: Permissive Parenting

    Lots to talk about on the show today: 

    —Many in the United States have felt the Brits were “overreacting” to the death of the late Queen Elizabeth, but I disagree. A life devoted to country and family is worth honoring. They got it right. 

    —Tucker Carlson goes after teachers who are sexualizing students

    —CEO of “Beyond Meat” has a story that you can’t make up and finally…Proverbs 22:6 says,  “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” However, many parents today are struggling to discipline their children with any manner of consistently. Not only does this go against Scripture, but it is also harming our children. Today I’ll be talking a bit about parenting and why discipline is really translated LOVE.  SHOW NOTES

Wow!!

Just found Heidi’s podcast after hearing a small portion of her speaking at the first homeschool conference at the Ark Encounter. My goal in starting to listen was for homeschool purposes and now I am hooked to her ‘up to date’ civil and social issues. I typically like to start at the first episode of a new podcast and work my way to the most current, but after seeing the title of a new episode was hooked to her topics and wisdom that I am working backwards (newer to older). Thank you for your honesty and sound biblical information and knowledge. Heidi, you have encouraged me to get off the couch and get involved in the dangers coming from our capitals and government.

Eye opener

I started to listen to Heidi back in 2020 and she opened my eyes to homeschooling. I didn’t think I can do it and on the days that it got hard and I would cry, the Holy Spirit would remind me to listen to her and every time she had something that I needed to hear so I can keep going. That’s my way for now on getting off the bench and on the battle field.

Stay away

While I appreciate her homeschooling views, the hate she spews is sickening. Her political views are disturbing and not biblical.
