Teach your Internet homeschool highschool children the Power of Intention – part 1


“Love does not obey our expectations, it obeys our intentions.”
Lloyd Strom

Teaching our homeschool highschool children the power of intention, to focus their thoughts on their future and the positive aspects, goals, decision or paths of learning to create their own future is a parents responsibility that goes beyond measure. To briefly begin this article let’s look at a young king, one of a few young kings and queens history has shown us from cultures from around the world as proof it can be done and perhaps it has been forgotten or set aside.

2 Kings 22:1

Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty and one years in Jerusalem, and his mother’s name was Jedidah, the daughter of Adaiah of Boscath.

In the above example the young king Josiah, even though he was only eight years old, he was still expected to rule a nation of people and they in turn expected him to act like a king. His advisers taught him the power of intention, the power of love to prepare him to guide his people the right way and not like a tyrant. Josiah did rule his people the right way for thirty years and was a legendary and beloved king known around the world.

Throughout history we have had more than one hundred examples of young rulers using the power of intention, the power of love to influence to others. In the semi-autobiographical movie ‘The King and I’ the king of Siam passed his kingdom to his young son to his young son, who was taught to lead his people with the power of intention.

Pharaoh Tutankhamen a legendary young king of Egypt on the same level as pharaoh Queen Cleopatra were also young rulers whose powers of intention affected millions of people over decades.

By sowing small seeds of confidence in our highschool homeschool children at home, confidence in their intentions, confidence in a few conscious directions, a few conscious steps of faith, and acceptance of what they are doing and the direction they are going will carry them through a very fulfilling life.

Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

As our children’s teacher’s by making these intentions a daily habit is like watering the seeds we are sowing, planting a garden of confidence to grow in their minds, make a positive change on their futures – instead of watching their futures make changes on them.

“Just what is meant by ‘your word?’ It means your conscious intention, your conscious direction, your conscious faith and acceptance that, because of what you are doing, the Power of Spirit will flow through your word in the direction you give It.”
Ernest Holmes

Goal Setting for Internet Homeschoolers part 2


In part 1, we realized that if any Internet high-school homechooled students imagined that it is difficult to change anything or achieve anything then they will not be able to overcome that hurdle no matter what size it is, then what we need to learn is how to eat an elephant.

Eat an elephant? Yes! Eat an elephant…piece by piece, like army ants – until it is devoured…in a matter of hours – which means, it can be done.
Proverbs 6:8
Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

So mothers/teachers/fathers encourage our Internet high-school homeschooled students to have faith, doubt not that the elephant can be eaten like the ants have been doing for centuries and dinner will be served on each and every hurdle they face or come across, each and every time… It was the exact same idea expressed in Matthew in Matthew 21:21 in part 1 of Goal Setting for Internet Homeschoolers.

Our children should be taught to seek triumph in internet homeschooled classes.


Jacques Barzun
~ It is by teaching that we teach ourselves, by relating that we observe, by affirming that we examine, by showing that we look, by writing that we think, by pumping that we draw water into the well. ~

Internet Homeschooled students should learn how to see the water in the well….

Cat Tales & New Faces


5 Homeschool moms and 18 kids met at Cat Tales Zoological Park this past Wednesday morning.
