Today’s podcast will be really helpful, and it’s one that every homeschooling family needs to listen to. Although we hate even to entertain the thought, we need to be ready to know how to react if the state ever approaches us, and our guest today is incredibly well-equipped to help us know how to respond in difficult situations. 

Bradley Pierce is the co-founding attorney of Heritage Defense. Since being licensed in 2008, Bradley has defended the parental rights of Christian homeschooling families around the country against threats by social services. Today, he’s going to be giving us some really practical advice that I know will be a great help to us all as we look specifically at pre-teens, teens, and medical consent, so stay tuned!

We’re excited to have Bradley Pierce joining us  as in Round Rock, TX and in Pigeon Forge, TN this year, and we invite you to join us there for a weekend of encouragement and getting better equipped for the mission God has given you. Click here to get tickets now.
