    You asked for it, and here it is! The newest addition to the SecularHomeschool.com forum is a section dedicated to discussions about College Prep. Many of our members are smack dab in the middle of their homeschooler's high school years, some are edging closer to that daunting stage, and a few of us (waving hand wildly here) have actually found ourselves on the other side with some actual wisdom to offer (stop giggling!!!).

    So, thanks to the request of multiple SHS'ers, as of today you have a custom-built location for all-things higher-ed-prep. Let the questions, advice, and occasional commiseration begin!!!

    My fingers are kind of tingling as I type this post, because I haven't been this excited about site news in a while. Thanks to feedback from you wonderful members, we're adding a brand new forum section to SecularHomeschool.com. It's called "From Soup to Nuts" (if you aren't familiar with that fun idiom, check it out on Wikipedia), and the idea behind it is to create some in-depth discussions on a wide variety of topics of interest to secular homeschoolers.

    Sometimes, we'll be featuring guest posters with a particular background or passion in a specific subject. Other times, we'll pull apart a news story or trending topic and look at it from every angle. But either way, From Soup to Nuts will be a single weekly featured thread on SHS that will let us explore a specific subject in-depth with our famous talent for creating dynamic discussion. And even cooler - - when we have a featured guest poster - - that person will stick around for the entirety of the week to answer questions and engage in the conversation.

    Just a couple things to note about this new forum section.

    1) It will open next Monday, May 18 and will feature our first guest poster, Karen Lock Kolp, who is homeschooling while dealing with chronic illness. (For more about Karen's story, read this piece from Bay State Parent.)
    2) It will not be an "open" forum in the sense that only admins and guest posters will be able to create new threads - - but ANYONE can participate in the featured discussions.

    If you have a suggestion for a topic for From Soup to Nuts, or a person you'd like to see featured, could you either follow up in the comments below or contact us?

    We don't know about you, but we'll use any excuse to celebrate around here. However, this time around, there are no excuses needed because this is BIG. No wait....we mean....
    Because recently, SecularHomeschool.com passed the 25,000 member registration mark. That's a LOT of secular homeschoolers!!!! ((Shall we take over the world, now??))

    Anyhoo, we don't think there is any better way to celebrate AND thank our amazing members and followers than by hosting a WEEK of giveaways. So, that's exactly what we're going to do! For the week of March 13, we'll be hosting SEVEN full days of giveaways on our Secular Home School Facebook timeline. There will TWO different giveaways each day, from vendors like Oak Meadow, Moving Beyond the Page, Time4Learning, and Institute for Excellence on Writing.

    So, be sure to drop into our timeline each and every day this week to get entered for some amazing prizes and be part of all the fun. After all, it's YOU who got us here. And that's why this upcoming celebration is our way of saying THANK YOU!!!!

    Please pass this article along to all of your secular homeschooling friends, too, because the more the merrier.

    Yeah, this week's Soup to Nuts was too pitch-y. "Let me help you identify a problem you may or may not have, so I can position my product as the ultimate (science-backed!) solution!" Can't we

    TFZ- That is awful, yes the system is broken and there are definitely doctors out there that just aren't doing the right thing. I just take it personally when we are all maligned, but that is definitely
