“The Home School Foundation's mission is to provide assistance
to homeschooling families in need...”
A Note From the Director, Chuck Hurst
Making much out of little is something God specializes in doing. Five loaves and two fish can become a banquet for thousands. And a grant provided by the Foundation can become courage for a widow, single mom, or college student to attempt the “impossible!” In a letter thanking us for a grant, one single mom wrote,
"The acknowledgement and support you have given me is so encouraging. I believe
that this is from God, and it is His way of showing that He cares."
In the early years of my own family’s story, I remember teaching all day and then working an additional job until midnight for several years to help make ends meet. Then things really got tough. God led me to quit teaching and go back to school.
With two preschoolers and no job, God showed my wife and me how much He could make from the little we had to offer. Looking back to those times, we wouldn’t trade them, for we were able to view firsthand how God takes what we offer and makes much. And through those experiences, God was getting me ready to help with the Foundation's work of ministering to others in times of “little.”
Whether you’re in a time of little or much, please be encouraged to know that God can always multiply what you place in His hands. Thanks to so many of you who let us be a part of God's process of “multiplying” to other homeschoolers like Tia. As was true of the disciples, our role is simply to pass out the provisions that are supplied after God blesses them-and to marvel!
