Letters and Quotes

Dr. Catherine Millard,
My name is Thomasyne Nobles. My son, Will, and I came to Jackson upon the invitation of Senator White to hear you speak. We were with the homeschool group from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. My son is studying first grade material and this is our second year to homeschool. I am so thankful to Senator White for bringing you to speak to students and parents in Mississippi. I am also very thankful to you for your work and your commitment to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Two weeks prior to Will starting Kindergarten at a private Christian school, I could not get peace in my heart about sending him to school. When I withdrew him and made the choice to homeschool I found peace in my soul. As I undertake this journey I am discovering more reasons why the Lord Jesus called me to do this. And Wednesday, October 10, 2001, I received another confirmation while listening to you. It is the truth that I am trying to teach. And I knew in my heart in spite of the corrupt government leaders and the open oppression of Christian values in our country, that there was truth somewhere.
Thank you for listening to your call and being obedient to the Lord Jesus. Thank you for revealing the truth in our history, in our founding fathers, in the making our great nation. What you shared inspired me, confirmed me and game me hope. My 6 year old son was also taken by your words. He requested to incorporate “A Children’s Companion Guide to America’s History” and “The Christian Heritage of Our Nation History Curriculum - National Memorials” into our history and geography studies. He is also eager to view the video “The Rewriting of America’s History - Volume One” before bedtime.
Because of the attacks on America by terrorists, I have had many opportunities to discuss subjects about our God, our great nation and the meaning of freedom and how it came to be with my son. As I listened to your, I felt a strong sense of urgency for Will and for all children to learn and know the truth concerning those who founded our land of the free. I don’t want him to be deceived. I do want Will to be able to defend himself against those who distort the truth with lies. I have been trying to help him understand how important it is to hide God’s truth, His word, in his heart. I have shared with Will in scripture how Jesus overcame Satan’s temptation by quoting the word of God. Now I understand it is also true of our country’s original history. I hope to teach Will how to find the truth through the “words” of our leaders that founded this country. On that day as you shared with us the words of our founding fathers it gave me hope that our nation will continue to be blessed.
Thank you for signing Will’s book. The next morning we looked up each scripture reference that you wrote down for him. It meant so much to me. The scriptures opened discussions with him about many subjects including the importance of having Jesus in his heart. We are going to discuss with him further before he makes a public profession, but I wanted to share that with you.
Thank you again, Dr. Millard. I hope this letter also offers you encouragement in your work and service to our God Almighty and our Lord Jesus Christ.
In the love of Christ,
