Here’s the “deal,” though it technically is not a sale. The Monument Publishing 12 Days of Christmas is a “giveaway.” I’m launching 12 free items specifically tailored to the Monument Publishing audience. So, speakers and debaters — or even homeschoolers with a subtle interest in the “homeschool sport,” as I like to call it — have nothing to lose in any of these free items.

All of them are valuable, but some of them are absolute no-brainers…

Our Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dish

I have a guest blogger today! This is from my dear wife, Wendy. She’s a master chef who can stir up a killer Thanksgiving dinner. Enjoy!

Adding 28 Hours More per Week

I sleep four hours every 24-hour cycle. I am healthier and more alert than ever, my sleep is extremely rewarding, and I gain up to an extra 28 hours of productive awake time every week. For the past 20 months, I have implemented a thorough and successful polyphasic sleep schedule. I’d like to share with you how it’s going.

There are several polyphasic sleep schedules, and I've adapted my own.

Every Family’s Thing

Wouldn’t it be great to quit the mindless job you have now and do what you love with your family, 24/7? It doesn’t really matter what your “thing” is. You can most likely make a living at that which you love, as my family has done for the last decade. Let me give you some background and explain more.

The Jeubs have enjoyed many fruitful years doing our "thing."

Three Homeschool Fads We Have Abandoned

Public and home educators aren’t as different as they think in respect to fads. They each have their own silver bullet idea that is promised to miraculously pump out perfect test scores and most holy adult children. Experienced educators see through them, and the most experienced can tell stories of the merits and flaws of the fads they walked through. I’d like to explore (and sort of confess) three of them.

Getting your kids ready for graduation is a long journey.

All fads promise perfect graduates. Reality is something different.
