Why is it there is nothing that is happening to help our public education system? Why is it that we are falling behind all other nations when the U.S. was looked at as the leader in so many industries and the place where dreams come true? Our country is changing...and changing for the worse, at least when it comes to education. Let me share an example of poor grammar and poor communication I personally faced during 'Open House' as my 13 year old returned to middle school this year.
If you wonder where communication goes wrong, when things change and alter the boys and girls who will... Read More
I grew up with a sister six month younger than me. She was the miracle love child in my mom's eyes. My parents were not supposed to be able to conceive according to the Doctor's of that era. Mom had been married from the age of 25 and had just one natural-born son thus far. She had been to doctors to find out why she could not conceive. My dad was diagnosed with being low sperm count. My parents adopted a baby boy six years after the first-born. Six years later my mom mourned for specifically baby girl. They applied for one and continued to try to conceive on their own because they had very... Read More
Each day parents are faced with issues of our time related to education, the economy, changing social norms and then the big one, dignity of life. As parents it is important to take life’s challenges, show confidence in our Lord (John 16:33) and put issues in “digestible” terms for our children. Around the dinner table, my daughters and I really, really enjoy a meal with white rice. Recently, as we sat chatting about the day’s events, I recalled news in my mind on the right to life issue. In a flash of inspiration, I picked-up a single grain and directed the conversation to how “Magnificent... Read More
Ryan is a typical three and a half year old boy. He runs around the house dragging a well chewed teddy bear behind him. He fights with, and screams at his sister, who is 15 months his senior. He jumps up and dances around when Yo Gabba Gabba comes on the TV.
Ryan also doesn't talk. His recognisable vocabulary comprises of 'Dada, Mama, Papa and Joojoo'. That is almost one word for each of his years. We know he understands as many words as the average boy his age. He listens, comprehends and does what is asked of him. We see and feel his frustration at not being able to communicate because...

We all were lucky to have grown up with a saint. Maude Beckner Donovan (Mama as we called her) and her husband, Charles E. Donovan (Grandpa Charley, who died before I was born), were my Mother's adoptive parents. They adopted little Virginia when she was barely two weeks old. She was the seventh child born to John and Rachel Peters, of Red Alley, Knoxville, Tennessee. Mother used to joke and say she had nowhere else to go but up from that address. (I later learned Rachel sang from the time she got up, until it was time for bed. And that John played the fiddle and banjo ... I’m part of their... Read More
Many years ago, I sat in my high school cafeteria, talking with friends. For some reason, the subject of mothers came up. My mother was immediately mentioned as the sweetest mom ever. Even girls I barely ever hung around loved my mom. She was just one of those people that made every kid feel special. She was the mom everyone wished they had. She was the mom I always wanted to be.
My friends and classmates loved my parents, even though my parents were never the "cool" parents. They didn't let me have wild, out of control parties. They had a very strict curfew for me. They didn't let me... Read More
This is one man's story.
I took this project on partly out of curiosity and partly to leave a monument to my family and the kin to come. I did not know how it was going to go. I started off the same way any of you would. Ancestry.com or Genealogy.com and FamilyTreeMaker.com; I used them all. The next thing you know I have some basic crappy information of family members I already knew and a sizeable dent in my debit account. My faith in the project’s success had been momentarily derailed.
I started to wonder if searching public records could yield a more promising result. The... Read More
