Book Description

This book is about a family. This family is not a typical family.

This family is blessed. It is tremendously productive. Father and mother both work, but they work together in a common calling. So do their children. They are missionaries, but not in the typical way. They are also educators—in the truest Biblical sense.

Father and mother are not afraid to obey God’s commands in Genesis 1:28. They know that the bigger their family gets, the more (not less) productive they will be. Children in this family are taught a valuable trade; they will not be useless as adults, unable to earn a living; far from it. Wealth will multiply at their touch. The Ten Commandments are the law in this family, not just taught but lived. God comes first in everything they do.

The parents are free to teach the children as God leads them. No one dictates what can or cannot be taught, or tells them how many hours a day they must spend on their schoolwork. Responsibility for the children’s education is shared between both parents. There are no arbitrarily required subjects imposed by pedantic education “experts.” Father and mother are the king and queen, raising their subjects under God’s authority.

The family is able to save money. “The labourer is worthy of his reward” is not just a slogan, they are well-paid for doing the Lord’s work. The parents are determined to lay up an inheritance for their children and their children’s children. The inheritance is both spiritual and material. The family rests in the knowledge that they are doing God’s work, and are a blessing to those around them.

The children are happy, as are their mother and father. They labor along with their parents. All are engaged in a serious endeavor, together. They learn practical skills, and seem competent far beyond their ages. The older children help the younger. Everyone learns from each other. Each is educated far more than the average child, but it is not an abstract, foolishly academic education. Visitors who see the family are amazed at the maturity of the young family members, and the respect they show for each other and their elders. Words like “resourceful” and “self-reliant” are used to describe them.

They work at a school, a school unlike any other. While they do spend much of their time at their schoolhouse, it is a far cry from the schools familiar to most Americans. This schoolhouse exists to serve God, not the state or the institutional church or any other human organization.

They are not recluses; their family is not a hermitage. Other children come into this schoolhouse, from other families. The differences between their families and the family at the school are marked. For most of these outside children, this family will be the only example they will ever see of what God intended a family to be. The family teaches these other children how to read, and do math, all about God and His Commandments, and many other things. Their testimony is such a shining example that their services are sought out even by people who have no interest in God. Reprobate men and women pay the family to evangelize their children and teach them God’s Commandments.

Why are we here? It’s rightfully considered one of the “big questions.” This family already has an answer for this question. They are on a mission from God, taking part in a great adventure. Their bonds grow stronger as they fulfill their calling together.

This family could be your family. Find out how in A Full Reward: Reformation Through Family-Run Christian Schools.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed on this book August 6, 2014
This book starts off talking about how homeschooling or at least bringing up a child in the ways of God's law (specifically by training them up in the Ten Commandments) is extremely important compared to sending a child off to a public school or a private school. I homeschool my sons and understood this importance too, however I do know many public schooled children who are fully serving Christ wholeheartedly simply because their parents spent much time raising them up in the Lord. That is the key in general, but he instead says those children are a minority without expounding on why they make it through. I too was raised by a parent who instilled God's Word into my life and I went to private and public schools (though these days I see much more value in homeschool education than in either of those). I stayed away from loads of trouble and even married my first boyfriend simply because I had a good fear of the Lord in me. I am a minority, it seems, but it had nothing to do with a school facility, but that I was trained in the Bible in general and it actually meant something to me.

The book continues to talk about the importance of apprenticeship rather than sending your child off to college with a load of loans they will be burdened with (or you will be burdened with). I agree completely (and chose to not go to college because I didn't know what I wanted to do, my parents didn't have the money, and I was actually afraid of getting involved in a bad lifestyle so I avoided the scene completely). I see much more usefulness in actually being taught about a trade rather than going to school for subjects you may not need or want to learn about or may not use your degree for anyway.

While I do agree on many points in this book, I did have a lot of issues with it too.
