In 2006 Michael Pearl addressed the issue of many homeschooled children "jumping ship" in a series of articles written for "No Greater Joy" magazine. These children are departing from their families as soon as they think they can possibly survive without them. Now, these articles have been compiled into a book, Jumping Ship, with new material covering additional issues. Paperback.
There is a troubling trend that is rising in Christian Families today: Their children are discontent and rebellious, jumping ship as soon as they can survive without the family, some as young as 16 years old. Parents are crying, "Where did we go wrong? What can we do to prevent this from happening to the rest of our children?" These answers and more are covered in the book.
Michael Pearl was raised in Memphis, Tennessee by parents who were faithful to point him to God. Mike is a graduate of Crighton College in Memphis. He worked with Memphis Union Mission for 25 years, while he ministered in hospitals and churches to the many military families. God eventually led him into the ministry of writing on child training and family relationships. He now feels this is his life's work and calling. The result of this work led to the formation of No Greater Joy Ministries (NGJ), a 501 (c) (3). The largest project that NGJ has ever been involved in is the Good and Evil Project, a work to translate the Illustrated Bible Storybook Good and Evil into 100 languages. G & E has 10 languages in print, and another 55 languages in the process of being translated or edited. The web address is www.nogreaterjoy.org.
