  4. Guidelines for Posting

    Please keep a positive, helpful tone that promotes unity in the body of Christ.

    This board is sponsored by My Father's World; please do not post links to other companies. This is the only "official" My Father's World board. Any other boards, e-mail groups, or social media groups that discuss My Father's World are not monitored by us. We are not opposed to these other boards, but because we cannot verify the content, we may remove links to them.

    Please do not buy or sell curriculum or other products on this board.

    Prayer is important and we encourage you to build a strong local spiritual community to hold you up in prayer. We welcome homeschool prayer requests; we encourage you to share other needs (health, personal matters, etc.) with your local body of believers. Prayer requests will remain on our board for 14 days.

    Your post may be edited or removed based on the above guidelines. We try to monitor this board for a positive, helpful tone consistent with the spirit and philosophy of MFW. If we choose to remove a post, our goal is to contact the individual directly about the reason for deleting the post. During our busy season, this may not always be possible.

    When a poster requests or needs an official answer from My Father's World we may lock the thread to give us time to respond with a thoughtful, thorough answer within 7-10 days. If the original poster needs the answer before then, please call our office. #
