Another Giveaway!

Voddie Baucham's daughter Jasmine has a great giveaway going on over at Joyfully Home!
She recommends and is giving away the film Homeschool Dropouts: Why the Second Generation is Now Headed for a Spiritual Wasteland.
Here's what she has to say about the film:

I can definitely recommend this film for homeschoolers from all walks of life, even those of us who think we've got the multigenerational faithfulness thing down pat. It will awaken us to some blind spots we have in our own lives (pride, as I've said, false piety, complacency, etc.), it will give us even more resolve as we look towards the future, and carrying the torch that our parents have passed to us, and it will give us the courage to exhort apathetic fellow homeschoolers, to pull them up to fight alongside us.

Some other lessons we'll learn or be reminded of along the way:
If we love the Lord, we will keep his commandments.
Homeschoolers often fall into the trap of being "good" kids rather than righteous kids; we measure ourselves according to the world's standards instead of the Lord's.
Our focus is sometimes on superiority instead of righteousness.
We must learn how to let the Lord define our success, not the world.
Pride is the silent killer of the homeschool movement.
We have a tendency to either run away from the world or fall into the world.
We need to be good stewards of the sacrifices our parents have made for us.
If we're going to carry the torch our parents have passed on to us, we need to understand the gospel.
And there's so much more. This film is an hour well-spent, full of interviews with homeschool graduates, leaders of the homeschool movement, and a short lesson on the history of homeschooling. Most importantly, it is a film saturated with God's Word and teaming with his principles laid out in an unapologetic manner.

So, go on over and enter! (You don't have to have a blog!)
