Jeremiah 20:9

But if I say, “I will not mention His word or speak anymore in His name,” His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.

 

The mission of IGNITE is to provide a fun and engaging environment to learn science, history, and geography with a Biblical Worldview for homeschooling families. We aim to help alleviate some of the homeschooling pressures of teaching and finding curriculum. Our classes are aligned throughout grade levels to make studying at home easier.
