It is amazing to look back nearly 45 years and see what inspired a mother to make what was then considered a radical choice- to homeschool her children. Patricia Heidenry’s article for the New York Times from 1975 –Home Is Where The School Is – is an interesting and inspiring and still relevant read.

It doesn’t matter if your children are not middle or high school aged, we want to spend time visiting with you! There will be time for parents to get to know each other. The youngers will enjoy participating in the postcard swap! Bring postcards from your state or country to trade with other children to create a fun collection!
The Adventist Home Educator offers ways to connect with SDA homeschool families beyond just the website and blog. We invite you to join us!
The AHE-List is a place for Adventist homeschoolers to come together for friendly and informative discussion about home education from birth through high school. With an emphasis on true education, we share our ideas and experiences relating to teaching methods, learning styles, scheduling, curriculum choices and many other homeschooling topics. This is a place where we can help others along their homeschooling journey and also learn some new things ourselves. To join or learn more, visit: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/AHE-List/
AHE-Living is a friendly place for sharing encouraging words as we work together to create grace-filled, loving homes and pure hearts for the Kingdom. This is a place to visit about child rearing, home decorating, healthy cooking, health and wellness, family relationships, spiritual growth and family worships, sewing and crafts, gardening and flowers, and other topics near and dear to our hearts. As God’s children, we understand that He has placed us exactly where He wants us to be at this moment in time, and goes with us daily as we walk with Him and develop a relationship that draws us even closer to Jesus. This is a supplemental group affiliated with Adventist Home Educators; a place where we can discuss all aspects of Christian living. You will need to be a member of the AHE-list in order to join.

AHE-Swap is an email list where we can buy and sell or swap homeschooling or household items among friends. To join, you must be subscribed to the AHE e-Newsletter or the AHE-List. Subscription information is sent with the welcome letters on each list and with monthly reminders.
