|Hello, fellow homeschoolers!
I am a Christian homeschooling mother of 10 from California. I would like
information on what it is like in Idaho. We are considering a move, and will
probably be visiting Idaho a couple of times in the next year. Idaho is our
main consideration because of its conservativism (moral climate) and also
that there is little (no?) humidity in the summer. Our main reasons for
relocating would be to find a more safe, moral environment; more Biblical
(not perfect) churches; wholesome activities, friendly neighborhoods, etc.
Please forward to others who may have time to respond to this.
questions I have are...
• What area do you live in, do you
like it, and why?
•Do you know of a family-friendly (no youth groups and numerous programs
divide and separate the family) church that you would recommend? (We
currently have a house church and would like to know of any of those, as
•Are there a lot of mid-rif exposed, multi-pierced youth in your area?
•Do you know of neighborhoods or areas with a lot of conservative Christian
homeschoolers? (We have a lot of liberal homeschoolers here - Christian
families who allow almost anything regarding movies, dress, etc.) By the
way, by 'dress' I don't mean that I'm for 'dresses only', but a little
modesty would be refreshing!
•What about the weather? Anyone formerly from CA that could tell us what
adjustments we'd have to make? (We're from the South SF Bay Area).
•What about business opportunities? Our family is entrepreneurial and used
to high-end (rich) clients.
•Are there many Constitution party types there, or mostly Republican?
What about produce? This is where Californians are spoiled! Strawberries,
watermelons, peaches, etc. plentiful in the summer? Expensive?
•Is there a Costco and/or a Home Depot in your area?
Anything else you can think of would be helpful! I am very much obliged to
all who can respond.
In Christ, and looking for a Christian-permeated
area in which to raise our children,
