Muse With Me... Sept. 28 2009

Elements of Style Are you a recovering government school student? Look no further, there is hope.

The Prologue
Anne Bradstreet
To sing of wars, of captains, and of kings,
Of cities founded, commonwealth begun,
For my mean pen are too superior things:
Or how they all, or each their dates have run
Let poets and historians set these forth,
My obscure lines shall not so dim their worth.
Ten Swine Flu Lies Told by the Mainstream Media
It's just the flu. Nothing else. No big deal. We have had several friends that have had it and used natural remedies to recover. Let us know if you would like a copy of the organic/ natural regiment.

Am I wasting my life?
Another problem is how we perceive our responsibility relating to time. Some live as though time is to be passed. The more diligent live as though time is to be filled. But Christians should know that time must be redeemed...The great Puritan compliment was to speak of a man as a redeemer of time, one who used time wisely. Charles Chauncey told Ezra Stiles that Cotton Mather was such a man: ‘He was the greatest redeemer of time I ever knew.’

How one family eliminated $106,000 of debt
God blessed their faithfulness and determination to get out of debt the right way. An excellent read.

Christian Private School vs. Christian Home Education by Israel Wayne
Personally, I don’t think there is a more vicious pack of carnivorous beasts on the planet than a group of junior high students. There are many adults who still carry around the wounds and scars of their adolescence. Many young people during this transformational age are scared and uncertain about themselves and their place in the world. They feel vulnerable and don’t want to show their fears, so they look for weakness in others and lunge at any opportunity to exploit it...

How to successfully defeat an abusive social worker The anti spanking movement in this country has become very very dangerous. The laws in this country that pertain child abuse are changing very very rapidly. Child Protective Services, friend of foe? Det. Robert Surgenor's lecture had Andrea and I nearly standing on our chairs waving towels above our heads cheering. That would translate into a 5 out of 5 stars. ;) Excellent stories. (CD 16)

"Twenty years ago I would have never believed I would be standing here today, from a lowly policeman to a person who if fighting our culture, the anti-god, anti-parent culture that we live in today. I give all the glory to God because He has sent me in this direction, and if nothing else, we're starting to show christian families how they can protect themselves from this destructive culture."

Covenantal Approach to Jurisdictions Offers an overview and gives understanding of the jurisdictions of family, church and state. Excellent. Was glad it was in my library so I was able to review it again recently for a friend. Definitely a resource to keep on hand. (Volume 1 DVD 2)
