Math facts. They are dull, but necessary. When in the classroom I tried multiple ways to make math facts more enjoyable. Round Robin Math Facts, Speed Math Facts, Graph Your Progress of Math Facts…..but all efforts just cloaked the reality that the kids were practicing math facts.
We always are listening to CDs in the car, so when asked to review Happy Kids Songs, I took the MP3 files and put them onto a CD. We listened to them in the car and then the CD disappeared! One of the kids had taken it inside in order to listen to it. I wasn’t sure if I’d ever see it again!
**Friend, if you do not believe in God and have no desire for our nation to reflect Christian values, then do not bother to read this post. It will do nothing but frustrate you and I have no desire to cause strife among those who do not believe as I do.
On the other hand, if you do agree with Christian values, then know that the following words are written in love and pointed more towards my own faults and failures than yours.
Today you will find my friend Whitson ending the Broken Hearts, Fueled Passions Series. Whit and I went to high school together and we sang in the same ensemble.

And not everyone has the same “voice”.
Each person who contributed to this series spoke of differing passions, challenges, and Truths. But all of them follow the same God. Enjoy!
You all know that teaching the Bible to children is my passion. When Dusty from tothemoonandbackblog.net asked for writers to help her with this ABC series, I jumped. What fun! I know my teaching stye isn’t like many, but I hope you will follow her series and enjoy the Letter B, which I wrote.
Here’s the link for Letter A if you’d like to read it!
Who is your favorite Superhero? I can remember when I was a little girl hurrying to get ready for bed so that I could sit on the couch with my dad and watch Wonder Woman and the Incredible Hulk. Those were my favorites! Both had awesome powers and who wouldn’t want an invisible plane?
I want to introduce you to a new Superhero. This man is not well known, but the more I learn about him, the more I respect him. His name was……
For months I have felt like my life is unsettled and chaotic. Granted, we’ve been going through the adoption process, but life just seems to be spinning out of control and I want it to stop for JUST one. moment!
