Quiver & Arrows
Psalms 127:4-5 (NIV), “Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with the opponents in court.”
Just as arrows spring forth from a bow to meet their target after resting in a quiver, homeschools teach, nurture. and grow children to be launched out into the world. We at Bentley Homeschool Printing are overjoyed to announce the formation of Quiver & Arrows Homeschooling Literary Magazine, designed to be a source of literary excellence from homeschoolers in 11th and 12th grades.
