Okay, what is an entmoot? In J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy, an ent is a shepherd of the trees. An entmoot is a meeting of the ents to discuss issues. When we first started homeschooling, I asked my husband to come up with a name, and that's what he came up with. It has stuck. Even though we like Tolkien's writings, and have named our cats and homeschool after characters in the books, we are not obsessed with Lord of the Rings. We are totally devoted followers of the Risen Saviour Christ Jesus. Everything that we do, we do for His glory, including homeschooling our three children.

Al Menconi Ministries

Al Menconi Ministries is an evangelical, non-denominational para-church ministry. Their mission is to educate and equip Christian parents and leaders to communicate biblical values in the home and church. They accomplish this through:

  • Evaluating today's entertainment from a biblical perspective.
  • Educating Christians about the values and influences of today's entertainment.
  • Encouraging Christians to set standards and choices consistent with God's Word.
  • Equipping Christians to teach values through Christian music.

Al Menconi Ministries offers a balanced, responsible, biblical approach that teaches Christians how to think, rather than just what to think. A crucial aspect of this ministry concerns the entertainment media. In the spiritual warfare of this life, entertainment is the often ammunition that shoots down our faith. Before a parent or teacher can really teach positive biblical values, they must first help young people to control the entertainment media in their lives.

Kiddie Records Weekly began in 2005 as a one year project devoted to the golden age of children's records. This period spanned from the mid forties through the early fifties and produced a wealth of all-time classics. Many of these recordings were extravagant Hollywood productions on major record labels and featured big time celebrities and composers. Over the years, these forgotten treasures slipped off the radar and it became their mission to give them a new lease on life by sharing them with today's generation of online listeners. Each week throughout the year they added a new recording and before they knew it, their one year project turned into three! Although they will not be continuing beyond 2007, Kiddie Records Weekly will remain online and they will update the Bonus Records section every now and then.
