Homeschooling and American Heritage Girls

Vol. 82, Prg. 6–10
May 5–9, 2008

What does it mean to be a “woman of integrity?” Well, if you ask the mainstream media—becoming a woman of integrity doesn’t always involve a higher being. This week, Mike Smith and his guest, Patti Garibay, will talk about a few ways homeschooling parents can counteract this message and help their daughters find true self-esteem, integrity, and significance in God.
