Dr. James Dobson More than 30 years ago, Dr. James C. Dobson, Ph.D., founded Focus on the Family as a non-profit organization, established to undergird Christian values for families in today's world. What began with a radio program on a few stations in 1977 has grown to a network of more than 3,000 facilities in North America (with thousands more in 160 countries worldwide) plus a daily commentary heard by more than 220 million people.

Undertaking a significant "recalibration" of ministry direction, Dr. James Dobson began a transition out of leadership at Focus on the Family in 2003 which ultimately has led to the conclusion of that long history with Focus as of February 2010. Confident, however, of God's continued call on his life, Dr. Dobson continues to speak to families through his program, Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson, launched on May 3, 2010.

Dr. Raymond Moore authored many books on homeschooling but none more popular than Better Late than Early, the book that has been attributed to launching the modern homeschooling movement in the United States. Moore’s book grew out of an article first published in Harper’s in 1972, at the time when California was considering a law to make school compulsory for children as young as 2 years, 9 months. The article was republished by Reader’s Digest where it was so popular, the editors requested a book. With his wife Dorothy (deceased) he wrote many books on education and other subjects.

His educational career began as a teacher, principal and superintendent of California public schools. During World War II he served on General MacArthur’s staff. After completing his PhD in Education at the University of Southern California, he held the positions of academic dean and president of numerous Seventh-day Colleges in the United States, Japan, and the Philippines. The United States Office of Education then invited him to be a higher education program officer.

But it was the research that he compiled about the effects of schooling on young children that steered his career away from higher education and into homeschooling. He and his wife Dorothy spent years working with legislatures and courts to establish legal precedents for parents desiring to homeschool their children. Dr. Moore was the world’s foremost expert witness in homeschooling appearing in courts as far away as South Africa, West Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as Canada and the United States. The Moores were strong believers in the educational principles of head, heart, and hand laid out by Seventh-day Adventist Pioneer Ellen G. White. This philosophy of balancing service, work, and study became known as the Moore Formula in homeschooling circles.

This is such a wonderful broadcast! As a homeschool mother of six years now, it is a wonderful reminder, and affirmation, of why I began the homeschooling journey. I am so thrilled I found this website, and plan to visit it often.

May the Lord bless you in this endeavor, and may your journey be filled with His peace and joy in all things.

In Him,
BJF
