A Teen’s Commitment to Purity
The Morningstar Academy
Wednesday, 27 November 2013 15:55
My son was nervous on this Sunday morning. Never liking to be the center of attention, he didn’t treasure the idea of being in front of everyone during the service, but the promise he was making this morning was one that would also be a wonderful testimony and important to be witnessed by the congregation. For his fourteenth birthday, he asked for a purity ring for one of his gifts. The pastor prepared a special ceremony for the occasion and by the end of the service, both men and women were found wiping tears away! It reminded me of a wedding service, except the ring on his finger was a commitment between him and the Lord
School stories from my son helped me recognize how hard it is to be a teen these days and what a huge step he was making to stand apart from the masses and dare to be different. What he committed to was to remain pure for Christ. He committed to keep his body pure when dating, and to abstain from drugs and alcohol. The ring will serve as a constant reminder of his commitment to Christ and his promise to remain pure.
When he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, he was justified (acquitted, declared innocent) by what Jesus did for him on the cross. Jesus consecrated (set apart) him for His purposes. The purity ring on his finger is just an outward symbol of that consecration (and I believe it’s an awesome conversation starter for sharing his beliefs!). Yes, he still sins and is not perfect, but this lifetime journey that he’s on is exciting to me because he made a commitment of purity so young in his life.
Even when satan tempts us into sinning, or we think up our own sinful ideas, we can NEVER be separated from God! I John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (NIV) However, remember this isn’t a license to keep sinning as satan sometimes tries to deceive people into thinking.
Are you up to the challenge to get out of your comfort zone and swim upstream? Forget your past. Don’t focus on your weaknesses or shortcomings. Focus on the fact that God loves you. God forgives you and God’s waiting to work THROUGH you. And I also like to think that God uses me despite myself at times! A lifetime of purity for God is a process, maybe sometimes stumbling, but never falling because God is right beside you and won’t let you fall.
Psalm 86:11 “Teach me your ways, O Lord, that I may live according to your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor you.”
I Timothy 4:12 “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”
BREAKING FORTH INTO DESTINY.
The Morningstar Academy
Monday, 25 November 2013 16:19
Author: Oluwatobi Adesanya
Breaking forth into your destiny begins with an understanding of the scope of your journey in life. For every man there is a mandate. Your purpose is empowered by your vision………
Every Vision given is a response to a burden in the heart. The Burdens drives a person to searching, studying, inquiry and Prayer. Most times the vision is meant to solve the problems of a people, nation and society. There are key features as it relates to vision: Release, Running and Realization.
what do you see?……..
The man Jeremiah was asked ‘what do you see?’ What you see determines what you’ll get, that’s why God often times shows us Visions. He often shows the end from the beginning for He calls those things that be not as though they were. Jeremiah saw an almond tree, Jesus saw the joy that was set before him, Stephen saw the Heavens opened, Paul saw a crown laid up for him, Bill Gates saw the each home having an operating system.
Between the moments of the Release and the Realisation there is the place of Running. It is impossible to arrive at a destination without first taking a step. The delivered vision is always writable; a vision is not just an idea, thoughts or flashes, or rays of imagination, illusions or allusions. They are like paths on a race track, like a railway line. It is writable. The first place to give evidence to the vision is on paper. When the vision is released it is only a ‘it’ (at this point it is lifeless, no breath has been infused). Every vision is precise and does not lack definition. Vision means writing what you see, not saying what is seen, and it becomes a sign post that guides the path of life. Inotherwords, it is only to be written but read. Attention must be given to reading it constantly.
A vision released in the now is to meet a need of the future, hence it is for a time appointed, but there is an end, a point of the fulfilment of the released vision. There is a starting line and finishing line in every race (Chinese Proverb). At first the vision is only in a lifeless ‘it’ but when lives of men are impacted by the vision it begins to speak. Testimonies of transformed lives are the proof of the success of a vision. Patience is a necessary virtue to possess in the walk towards the fulfilment of the vision. Since the vision is a response to a need, it longs to be met and by so though even if it delays it will surely come.
No man who receives a vision should be puffed up; the revelation of the vision is to aid proper preparation for the run towards attainment. There is no room for pride, arrogance, or hastiness. Declaring to be a candidate for an electoral office does not guarantee your winning. The character of the recipient should be meekness, soberness and temperance which guide the course of action. Oftentimes the vision depicts things that you cannot do ordinarily. It is a task that cannot be achieved by sheer guts but first you must BELIEVE. It is your believing that guarantees your Becoming. Therefore, the Just (those who count themselves as having received through God’s own desire this vision) live by faith. The Faith here is a combination of Believing + Action. It propels the receiver to move.
The vision becomes totally unprofitable when the recipient does not believe it. The world will continually deteriorate when men refuse to either receive or run with their visions. God has wired us to discover not speculate about our purpose in life. Darkness will prevail if you refuse to shine as light, bitterness will destroy men when there is no salt or when it has lost its savour.
Today the vision of Martin Luther King Jr speaks, the vision of Kenneth E. Hagin speaks, the vision of Bishop Oyedepo speaks, Bill Gates, Steve Jobbs. Imagine a United States where blacks would have been sidelined forever, a world without Oyedepo would have made dead and without faith.
Perhaps only the graveyard and cemeteries would tell the tingling tales of great men who never took up the mantle of their vision, whose light were never lit and those who refuse to take responsibility for their future. A life without vision is a burden; it makes you dependent on others.

The spread of more and more electronic gadgets in the marketplace allowing easier access to the cyber verse by teens has caused young people to dismiss standing on their own two feet and ‘heeding’ the taunts and catcalls of the crowd, hounding them into not only suicidal thoughts–but actions.
The best protection? A firm foundation in Jesus Christ–and His Word–as modeled in the home. It is the h-o-m-e that has been authorized to be the ultimate ‘strengthening center’ for children and teens alike; and parents are charged with the responsibility to raise up the young ones under their care to a confident adulthood. Not the church. Not para-church ministries…BUT the home.
What is a parent to do to help their children to counteract the negatives being tossed at them from a society bent upon selfishness, peer pressure, and evil? Simple: Parent Strong! Teach a child how to strengthen their minds in the love of Christ, and give them His vision of how God sees them. It’s up to y-o-u, parents!
The Bible is full of examples of young people with a vision of God’s plan for their lives. Daniel. David. The prophet Samuel. The three Hebrew men. Queen Esther. Mary, the earthly mother of Jesus Christ. Solomon. John, the beloved apostle. Each of these individuals–as teens–were used by God. Their parents taught each of these young people one thing; listen for God and ignore the negative from society.
Children model in society what they see and hear their parents modeling in their own living rooms. Your teens know their way around your workplace based upon what their hear you–parent–gossiping about at home. They know your workplace gossip by heart! Who, on the job is their own ‘man’ or ‘woman’, and who are following ‘the workplace trends’ of drugging, drinking, and cheating. Parents who actively model faith and holiness ‘raise up’ mentally strong children who are more than capable of standing on their own two feet and being leaders rather than followers.
Parents: Don’t whine! Raise your children to be a real-time warriors, instead of a part-time cyber-lemmings. There is life beyond the Iphone, video game, and social networking page. It’s never too late to ‘Parent Strong’!

Using Multiple Intelligences in Your Homeschool
The Morningstar Academy
Wednesday, 20 November 2013 16:43
Author: Crystal Pratt
In the early eighties, Dr. Howard Gardner developed a theory of multiple intelligences. He proposed that recognizing multiple intelligences in people allowed for a broader range of potential. He suggested that I.Q. tests were too limiting and that humans had a wide variety of areas in which they could be considered intelligent or gifted. He categorized eight areas of intelligence. They are linguistic, logical-mathematic, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalist. If you have never “tested” to find you or your child’s multiple intelligence, you can try this online test: http://literacyworks.org/mi/assessment/findyourstrengths.html. What you will probably find is that while your child may have one very strong area of intelligence, he or she will show potential in several areas.
The linguistic learner is likely to enjoy poetry, journaling, creative writing, storytelling, and alphabetizing. Your linguistic child may enjoy teaching you a concept.
The logical-mathematic learner is likely to enjoy activities that include problem solving, Venn diagrams, classifying, and puzzles. This child will really enjoy scientific experiments, cooking following a recipe, sequencing, and measuring.
People who have spatial intelligence enjoy painting, drawing, making collages, murals, and posters. An activity this type of child would enjoy would be creating a film or video as an alternative to a written report.
The kinesthetic learner will enjoy science experiments, working with manipulatives, and using computers. This child will like to dance, act, perform, and build. It is important to keep a kinesthetic learner “busy.”
While it’s probably obvious that a musical learner will enjoy music, it is important to keep in mind everything that this encompasses. This type of learner will not only enjoy playing instruments and singing. They are likely to enjoy poetry, writing to music, rhythmic patterns, writing lyrics, and studying musicians.
The interpersonal learner is going to be the outgoing child. He or she will enjoy interviewing people, teaching others, cross-age tutoring, and problem solving.
The intrapersonal child is going to enjoy less social activities such as silent reading and journal writing. He or she may also enjoy reading autobiographies and the using of imagery and dreams in writing.
The naturalist will be excellent at recognizing and classifying items in nature. They will enjoy visiting zoos and aquariums and taking nature walks. A naturalist will be interested in ecology and animal rights.
By recognizing your child’s areas of strength, you can select the appropriate homeschool curriculum for your child’s needs. You will be fostering a life-long love of learning and your child will feel respected by your attentiveness to his or her interests.

Advantage of Homeschooling: Socialization
The Morningstar Academy
Monday, 18 November 2013 18:05
Author: Randall & Karen Webster
Homeschooling is an education option that is widely debated by comparing and contrasting it to public school. There are always two sides to every story, and there are many topics that always seem to come up in these discussions. This article will focus on one of the popular questions: socialization, by sharing our family’s experience as it relates to this discussion.
Homeschool Kids Don’t Have Socialization
This one pops up a lot. I find it hard to understand what people mean when they say this, or why it is usually the first thing they think of when the topic of homeschooling comes up. If they mean that sending your child to spend 8 hours a day with a bunch of kids their age in relatively unsupervised conditions is going to help develop their socialization skills, I am baffled even more.
Kids need much attention. When they are in a public setting, especially on their own, they feel the need for attention, but learn to seek it the way their peers do by example: whining, screaming, manipulation, hitting, etc. I’m not saying that my kids never whine, scream or hit, but we make it unfruitful for them to do so – they don’t get what they want. To be consistent with denying their whining or screaming until they ask in a normal tone of voice or accept that no is your final answer may take 5 or even 15 minutes – for the immediate battle and a weeks to win the war. This requires a flexible environment that is rarely available in a public setting. Our experience is that being consistent in denying whining and screaming is that they quickly learn not to do it. Reinforcing this over time it then becomes a way of life.
In the public school setting kids are relatively unsupervised during activities such as lunch, recess, changing classes, gym class, bus trips, assemblies, etc. Anything goes to get what they want. They quickly learn that manipulation of various forms works to get the attention they seek. However, if they aren’t one of the “group” they may suffer verbal and sometimes physical abuse that causes them to withdraw and not want to seek communication or relationship with anyone. It only brings pain. Kids can be so cruel to one another.
If you wanted your child to learn how to bowl would you send them to a group of kids their age, or would you seek a mentor who knew how to bowl? The skill of socialization is the same as any skill. They stand to learn a skill quicker and more complete when mentored by a few that are more mature in that skill. Kids learn more how to “survive” than how to properly socialize in a public school setting. They are more likely to get more loving, supportive attention at home than in a public setting. If you communicate with your kids in a truthful mature manner they will learn to get and receive attention the same way. There are plenty of opportunities to socialize with other kids at home, in church, with homeschool groups, or in your neighbohood.
My wife and I both attended public schools growing up, and we have been enjoying the advantages of homeschooling our children for over 10 years. We understand that homeschooling is a choice, and that it is may not be for everyone. Hopefully this helped you see both sides more clearly. We hope to address some more of the debated questions in future articles.

Teachable Moments Through A Family Movie Night
The Morningstar Academy
Friday, 15 November 2013 15:37
Author: Camille Rodriquez
I’ve found that one of the most fun ways to plan for “accidental” teaching moments with my kids is by having a family movie night. You might think that a family movie night would just end up with no one doing any talking, but that’s not the case at all. Our family has made a tradition out of watching movies together, and we’ve even come up with a game that has been lots of fun for all of our children, is great to play anywhere, and leads to some great parenting moments where we can easily and without lecturing, introduce our children to life issues and offer instruction for them on a variety of topics.
There are several versions of the game as we play it, but the original version is the easiest to begin with. We call it the “Movie Line” game and the idea is very simple. Everyone watches the movie as a family and enjoys the time together, but at the end of the movie, we begin to talk about the memorable lines from the film. They may be funny, sad, thought provoking, or just something that we remember, but when all of us are “replaying” the movie in this way, we can very naturally begin to talk about “why the writer did this or that thing,” “why the characters didn’t know better,” “what would my children have done differently,” etc. From these very natural conversations, we can turn just about any movie into a teachable moment as parents.
The game is very adaptable to other situations though. We can play the movie game anytime we want to just by having a member of the family call out a movie. We usually start youngest to oldest, and the person who leads the round will name a movie and then give a line from the movie. Each member of the family has to come up with another movie line from the same movie. We make the rounds until each member has been stumped except one, the winner, and then the winner gets to pick the next movie. This is a great version to play in the car, at the dinner table, or in any other place where you find that you are all together and want to have some fun. No props are needed, no game boards, just a playful spirit and a good memory!
The benefit of playing the movie game this way is that you gain insight into your children and the types of things that they remember, and the ways in which you might help them to learn other things better as well. For instance, if you child tends to recall the most ironic moments of a movie, then you know that you can use irony to teach school facts or life lessons. On the other hand, if your child tends to pick up on the lines that are the most humorous, use humor when you can to teach deeper truths. Natural learning styles will begin to come through which will help you parent more effectively, but you will also have fun while playing the game and build strong family bonds of laughter and silliness.
Have fun with it – make up your own rules, adapt to children of different ages, but consider a family movie night as a way to engage your children in meaningful play that stimulates conversation and gives you insight into their natural learning styles.

8 Ways to Sabotage Your Homeschool
The Morningstar Academy
Wednesday, 13 November 2013 15:58
Author: Wendy Young
The power of a successful homeschool journey cannot be over emphasized. Every parent who home schools wants to enjoy the adventure, grow close to their children and have well rounded children at the end of it. But moms hold the power to sabotage their own homeschools and often they do not even know they are doing it. Here are some warnings (and remedies) for homeschooling parents so that you are do not become one of them.
Warning #1 – You have no systems in place
How do you know this is happening? You cannot find your school books, the children cannot find their pens and pencils, your laundry is piling up and you cupboards and fridge are empty.
Solution – Take one afternoon on the weekend to plan your meals, do your grocery shopping, get your books ready for the next week and get your children to make sure their desks and pencil boxes are ready for Monday. Set up a laundry system in your home to make sure that your family has clean clothing and linens.
Warning #2 – Your children take forever to do their work
Some children are slow workers, but many are dawdlers. If your junior grade children are taking more than a 3 hours to do their work or your high schooler more than 6 hours then chances are that they are wasting time.
Solution – Make sure that you are giving your children short lessons so that dawdling is discouraged. Ensure that you alternate a hard lesson for a easier lesson. Take the time to train your children in the habit of attention so that they learn the importance of giving something their full attention and completing work in a timely fashion.
Warning #3 – Your children spend more time on school work than life
If your children are spending more than a third of their day in formal academic pursuits, it is a sure fire way of producing burnout in mom and child.
Solution – Raymond and Dorothy Moore, grandparents of the homeschooling movement, make use of a head, heart and hand principle. They said that a child’s day should be balanced equally between these three occupations. Head refers to academic pursuits; Hand refers to work in and around the home like chores and entrepreneurial activities and Heart refers to spiritual and moral training a parent should impart.
Warning #4 – Your children are allowed unlimited daily doses of TV and computer
Children should not watch TV or work on the computer everyday. It is an unhealthy situation as the stimulus that the brain receives from these two activities causes a dumbing down process where the child forgets how to entertain themselves, play out imaginary games and be productively and creatively busy – to mention just a few negatives.
Solution - Make a list of all the productive pursuits that your child can do and put to when they nag and ask for TV or their computer games. Ensure that you draw them alongside you in your day to day activities – and set the example yourself!
Warning #5 – Mom does not ensure that she is sufficiently rested
When a mom is tired, burnt out and running from play-dates to sports all afternoon and never takes a moment for a quiet cup of tea and a book, she is bound to be tense and overwrought. When mom has nothing left, she cannot give to her children and be a healing presence in her home.
Solution - Mom needs to set aside small moments in her day to take a breather. This can be a chapter of a good book, a walk around the garden, a cup of tea – on her own. It could also mean getting to bed earlier so that she can rise before her family with a small head start on her day. Mom needs to take time out monthly as well, so that she can set her hand to a craft or hobby where she can take off the “homeschooling mom hat.”
Warning #6 – The homeschooling parents talk of nothing but their children
Does it seem like whenever mom and dad go out or have a moment together, all they talk about is homeschooling and parenting? While there is time for that, it is also very important that they take time to remember that their relationship ranks right up there in importance.
Solution – Make a pact that you will do something special together, weekly or monthly, where you do not talk about homeschooling, parenting or household matters. Just enjoy being together.
Warning #7 – Parents control their children rather than build relationship with their children
This is a tough one… isn’t it? We want the best for our children; we want them to be all they were created to be and to achieve much in their lives. But often a parent will go overboard and forget that the reason they are raising children is so that they can be strong valuable members of a community.
Solution – Like a young sapling tree, protect your children as they need it. Train them in moral and spiritual guidelines as you take hold of those truths as well. As they grow and show maturity in certain areas, permit them to begin making their own decisions within the realm of what is permissible to your boundaries as a family unit.
Warning #8 – A homeschooling mom who spend too much time feeding on other lives
I left this for last because this one point can be the single most damaging thing that can happen to any homeschool. When a mom is always comparing herself and her children to what the next person is doing, what the other children have achieved, the projects that they are doing, instead of getting on and living her life with her children, she is bound to become frustrated and defeated.
Solution – Accept the season that your family is in – perhaps you have just had a baby and an in-depth unit study will sent your teetering over the edge! Perhaps your children have special needs and are not able to concentrate for long. Whatever the reason… accept the season. Also remember that each home and family is unique and your family has a specific flavor to it. When you try and bring in another family’s culture to your own, you dilute the beauty of your family.

Bible Character Password: A Super Bible School Activity for Elementary Kids
The Morningstar Academy
Monday, 11 November 2013 15:48
Author: Kathy Vincent
I love trying to figure out a good mystery. Maybe I should have been a detective. Trying to guess what a clue points to can be very fun. Here is a fun Bible school activity I think your kids will like that has a reminiscent feel to the old TV show game of Password where clues are given in order to reveal the hidden word. Play this along with helping your kids memorize Psalm 119:11 and you have a winning combination.
Here’s what you do:
At the end of this article, I have provided you with 10 sets of clues that point to different prominent Bible characters. You will want to write each clue on an index card and then keep each set of cards in an envelope that designates the Bible person the clues are for. Make sure your children cannot see the person’s name. You will also want some way to display each set of cards. I always use pocket charts to display my cards. You can find one at your local teacher supply store. You will also need a rendering of Psalm 119:11, which says, “I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You.”
Here’s how to play:
Divide your class into 2 teams. Pick someone to be the scorekeeper. Then say the following:
Psalm 119:11 says, “I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You.” Do you like to hide stuff? You know, like in a special place where no one can find your special treasure? God’s Word, the Bible, is the most special treasure you could ever have and the best place to hide it is in your heart. In other words, you need to memorize it and really know it well so that it can change your life from the inside out.
Some of you know some Bible verses and some of the great stories and people of the Bible. Today, we are going to play a game called “Bible Character Password” to see just how much of God’s Word you really have hidden in your heart.
I have a set of clues I am going to give that describes an important person in the Bible. I will give one clue at a time to each team. The team I give the clue to will have 10 seconds to try and guess who the clue is referring to. If your team is successful, you will earn 100 points. If your team is not successful, the other team will be given an additional clue and then they will have 10 seconds to guess the Bible person. Whoever guesses first will get the points. After each successful guess, I will pick someone from the team that guessed correctly to recite Psalm 119:11. If that person says the verse right, then they will earn their team another 100 points. By the way, if no one guesses the Bible Character from the clues given, no team earns points for that set of clues. OK! Let’s play!
Suggestions for Success:
Sets of Clues
Abraham: Great faith, stars, promise, Sarah, Isaac, Ishmael, Lot, sacrifice of son.
Jacob: Deceiver, 12 sons, wrestled with God, Esau, Isaac, 2 wives.
Joseph: Slave, dreamer, 12 brothers, coat, Egypt, jailed, Potipher, Jacob.
Moses: Special staff, desert wanderer, prince, burning bush, Red Sea, Commandments.
Samuel: Godly mother, dedicated at birth, heard God speak, Judge of Israel, wicked sons, anointed Saul as king.
Saul: First king of Israel, anointed king by Samuel, Jonathan, tried to kill David, asks a witch for wisdom, David sang to him
David: King, Goliath, psalms, Jonathan, Bathsheba, Solomon, slingshot, shepherd
Solomon: Temple builder, David, wisdom, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Queen of Sheba
Elijah: Miracles, fed by ravens, chariot of fire, endless flour and oil, raised boy from the dead, Mount Carmel, prayed for rain, mount of transfiguration
Paul: Pharisee, shipwrecked, temporarily blind, road to Damascus, missionary, wrote letters
