Mouth of Babes

Had in uniform

A conversation on a short road trip this week…

Me:  “So, Haddon, what do you think you want to be when you grow up?”

[brief pause]

Haddon:  “Um…I think I want to be a Christian like Karsten.”

Ryan Gets a RED Star!

Today my feedback star switched to red as I received my 1,000th positive feedback on eBay!  I think I’ve probably done about 1,7000 transactions and have no negatives.  Whew!

See Ryan’s red star.

Busy Week

It’s been several weeks of crazy as I have been preparing for this past Thursday and Friday.  It was the annual two day Educators’ Convention for the Michigan Association of Christian School’s Conference.  It was a great opportunity for me to present five different workshops on varied topics (last year I presented one workshop two different times so this was a new experience).

I gave the following workshops…

  • Fallacies on Parade [a presentation of the most common fallacies]
  • Patterns for Great Senior Trips [I think the way we do it is top-notch]
  • Classical Education Primer I [a what and why of classical education]
  • Classical Education Primer II [a how to of what classical schools do]
  • How eBay Can Help Your Ministry and You [I think approx. 10% of the confreence attendees packed in to hear this one…we had a lot of fun]

Grace abounded and we had an enjoyable and profitable time for our Master’s cause.

Douglas Wilson…

“As we look around at that great squirrel-cage run we call modernity, we see that most of us as moderns belong to a religion called Getting Ahead….True education reform begins in rest; it begins with grace.  We cannot hope to be effective in this work unless we get the Gospel straight and, having gotten it straight, rest in the promises given.  Contrary to the opinions of our adversaries, education is not a savior.  But it can be saved.”

The Case for Classical Christian Education, p. 30

Quote of the Day

A.W. Tozer on the omniscience of God…

“God knows instantly and effortlessly all matter and all matters, all mind and every mind, all spirit and all spirits, all being and every being, all creaturehood and all creatures, every plurality and all pluralities, all law and every law, all relations, all causes, all thoughts, all mysteries, all enigmas, all feelings, all desires, every unuttered secret, all thrones and dominions, all personalities, all things visible and invisible in heaven and in earth, motion, space, time, life, death, good, evil, heaven and hell.

“Beacuse God knows all things perfectly.  He knows no thing better than any other thing, but all things equally well.  He never discovers anything, He is never surprised, never amazed.  He never wonders about anything nor (except when drawing men out for their own good) does He seek information or ask questions.”

Needing a recommendation


Do any of my readers have a suggestion for a good and reliable and non-cumbersome internet filter?  I will have broadband in the school in the next several weeks, and need to set up some barriers.

Your suggestions are appreciated.
