A review like this one from a complete stranger makes all the hard work worth it.
I want to journey to a place,
that’s unknown and unfamiliar;
He’ll stop the sense of déjà vu
and nothing can be familiar.
I’d love to get that sensation,
to live without pointing fingers;
when surrounded by holy peace,
I can know His Presence lingers.
Within this blessed serenity,
I’ll find His joy without worries;
Life slows to a Godly pace where
I’m being, not in a hurry…
to escape His magnificence!

Traditions of men get in the way,
while creating an unholy mix-
the Human Condition fails us now,
as our eyes on ourselves are transfixed,
blinded to The Father’s heavenly sway.
When relationships sadly break down,
we’re torn about whom we can still trust-
the Human Condition fails us now,
as we’re held back by our soulish lusts,
blinded to His mercies that abound.
Recurring loops of insanity,
ensure that we won’t find any…

As Indie Authors, it's imperative that we present a professionally finished book to our readers, not only for their benefit but also for our reputation as an author.

It’s that time of year. Grading periods have closed, and students have come home with either Progress Reports or Report Cards, or possibly even both. As parents, we place the obligatory signature on the piece of paper and hand it back to our students to turn in the next day. We even review the scores and comments and might have a conversation with our child. But how to we actively engage in a conversation with them based on what the document says if we aren’t always certain ourselves? What…Continue

Many consider the end Secretary Duncan’s term to be more than a simple changing of the guard; they are speculating it may be the end of a standards-based education era. From 1993-2015, the tenures of
Secretaries Riley, Paige, Spellings,…

As parents, we often worry about how we can actively help ours children’s education. Most of us aren’t teachers; we do not work in schools.

Reading is the most important academic activity you can do with your child.
