Election 2016: More than a Candidate, More than a Political Party
Our American political arena is in chaos. We have sunk to a new low with our unjust media and our values as a people.

Since 1975 we have murdered 65 million children all in the name of  pro-choice and women's rights. In the past eight years, we have allowed almost every kind of evil to be taught in our public schools in the name of civil rights, understanding, and tolerence. Civil rights, understanding and tolerence are all good ideas. However, when these ideas are joined with issues that are directly in opposition to  God's Word this is a problem.

Our election this year is more than Republicans and Democrats. It is so much more than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. It is about the preservation of a great country. Today our country is on the brink of destruction. We have strayed away from God and his principles. We are living a lie as a people.

Electing a new president will not eleminate our problems. A new president cannot mend years of rebellion, neglect and abuse of people ignoring God and his Word.

What is the answer for America? The only answer, the only hope we have is to turn our hearts back to the God who created heaven and earth. There is no other answer.

How to vote? This is a most difficult question and the only answer is to pray, look at the candidates, and see which one best represents Biblical priniciples. Remember that our Constitution was also founded upon Biblial principles.

Which candidate:
  1. supports the lives of all Americans including the unborn?
  2. supports the Constitution?
  3. supports Israel and the Jewish people as God's chosen people living in their Promise Land given to them by God?
  4. supports all of our amendments to protect ourselves and our famlies?
  5. supports the protection of our borders against hostile enemies?
  6. supports religious freedom?

These are only a few of the questions to ask before choosing a candiate. Our freedom is at stake. Our allies freedom is at stake.  If America goes down, the domino effect will pull many other countries with us. There will be no one left to come to our aid!

If we are taken over by socialist mentality, our lives and our children's lives will never be the same. We will become slaves to a government that does not support the American people or our allies. We have already had slavery in this country almost 200 years ago. It didn't work! We had a civil war and thousands died.

Choose wisely America.

Gathering Broom Flowers - It's that time of year again!

Today was a special day.
We spent the morning gathering broom flowers.
First, we gathered several loads of the pretty flowers.
Later, we  put them in special drying racks in the
barn  to stay until they are completely dry.
Next, we will spray them with a gloss to help
preserve them and keep them shiny.
A little camera shy...

We will use the some of the flowers for fall decorating and the rest we share!


And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. Genesis 1:11

What Do You Do?

Good Evening Friends,

What do you do?  By this I mean, what gift has God given you to do? What do you create? We are made in the image of God. He is the Creator. There are a multitude of things for us to create. If we look intently, we can see that each creation has a purpose.

What are some of your creations? Could it be food, clothing, or gifts? Possibly  your creations are  things not tangible such as a gentle spirit, an encouraging word, or a creation of peace in an otherwise  non peaceful world.

Some of our creations come from pain. Often during our darkest hours, God is busy creating in us so that we may give to others.

Whatever you create. Whatever you do. Do it all to the glory of God. Share your creations with others. Give freely to those who have less than you.

We are living in a world that could use your creations today.

Changing Times and Free Children's Books

The Adventures of Jeb and Skeeter Series Book 1

Dear Friends,

When this blog took its first step, the world was a different place. Now, everything has changed. I cannot sit idly by and pretend that America has not changed and will remain free and strong forever. Therefore, it is every citizen's duty who loves this country and what she has stood for to remain fervent and steadfast in working to maintain the values and principles which we have enjoyed for over 200 years.

I have chosen to teach as many children as possible to love and value this land of the free and home of the brave. Last month marked the beginning of 37 years which I have been teaching America's children. I don't say this to elevate myself. Instead, I say this to show you how much I love this country and how I am willing to do what is necessary to train the future generations of America to love and value her.

Some of my readers already know that I have been writing historical children's books for many years. I have used them in my classroom since the early 1980's. It was only recently that my students have begged to have a copy of their own.

In the past two years, I have given away hundreds of free digital books on Amazon to try and put as many quality books as possible into the hand of those who love the Lord and are seeking to train their children in His ways.

This is not a money making venture. Instead it is a way that I can support my country, my God, and the millions of families who are trying to raise godly children in an ungodly world.

Currently, I have one digital book on and the second one in the series is ready for pre-order. The second book in this series will be ready for purchase October 30, 2016.

I am not asking anyone to purchase anything. Instead, I am asking you to share this information and these books with as many families as possible. Anyone who is a Kindle Direct member can read the books for free and share them with others for free. Those who are not Kindle members may read a sample before purchasing.

Each book in the The Adventures of Jeb and Skeeter Series  is full of adventures, drama, and comedy. These are perfect for read aloud stories during family time or read alone books for older elementary
students. Each book has short chapters which make it easier for students who are learning to read chapter books.

Help me to help American families and the world to return to the godly principles which were once the main ingredient in our homes.

Everlasting Yeast from Grandmother's Pantry

Here is a recipe we found in our 1890 cookbook and felt it might be important to pass along to everyone. You may never have need of this little recipe but in the event you do it could certainly come in handy.

Boil 4 medium size potatoes and run through a fruit press (ricer). Add enough potato water to make 2/3 of a quart. Mix in 4 tablespoons of sugar. Set in a warm place until it ferments and bubbles form on top. Use 1 cup each time you bake. Replenish the yeast by adding potato water and sugar as needed. Store in a tight glass jar in a cool place after fermentation. Use this yeast when making light breads. (circa 1890)
This yeast will not have the same effect as modern yeast but it will make bread rise and it will have a nice flavor.

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

A Time to Remember

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
Today I told the true story of Squanto to the children at church.
They were captivated by this story.
If you are looking for a story of the pilgrims and how God allowed them to survive and thrive in this new land, then possibly, this could be the story for you to share with your children this Thanksgiving.
God bless you all!
