    R_M_C_H (Rocky Mountain Christian Homeschoolers) - Welcome to Rocky Mountain Christian Homeschoolers! This is a support group for Christian homeschoolers in the Anaconda-Deerlodge, MT area who believe in and practice Biblical application of parenting, childrearing, discipline, and education. Members of this group should have a Biblical worldview and believe in Biblical concepts of marriage, family, child rearing, and education. While there are many homeschooling groups, it is of utmost importance to have a Christian forum where we may seek advice, wisdom, and support from other Christians without having to be in constant fear of offending others in the group that are not Christians (or them having to worry about offending us) or even Christians who do not share our worldview. We cannot separate our Christianity from who we are or from our lifestyles, and that will naturally be reflected in the issues we raise, the questions we ask, the advice we seek, and the advice we give.

    Posts and conversations may include such things as curriculum, activities, laws, familial disapproval, and discipline issues, as well as other issues for which all parents need support, such as parenting, relationships, courting, dealing with stress, etc. This group hopes to support the whole aspect of the learning lifestyle that encompasses homeschooling, therefore realizing that all of these areas are interrelated and cannot always be excluded from one another. While hot topics are not discouraged, differing viewpoints on hot topics will be respectfully and lovingly conveyed at all times.

    "And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." Deuteronomy 6:7
