Someone's Precious Baby

October is National Learning Disabilities Month. It is a time when our focus is shifted to education, specifically on raising awareness about learning disabilities and the achievements those with these differences have accomplished. I wish we called it Nation Learning Aspiration Month.
Not a week goes by that I am not asked by one of our customer service representatives to call a despondent mother who wants to pull her child out of a school because it seems that the teacher just doesn’t “get” him. The truth of the matter is that the teacher probably doesn’t. Many children end up in situations where not only are they misunderstood, but they are not encouraged to become the person that God created them to be.

Giants: Myths and Legends
Often our children forget that the Old Testament is filled with as much adventure, drama, tragedy, and beauty as the movies they watch or the books they read today. Among the many characters mentioned in the Bible, they may be surprised to find that giants appear several times throughout the Old Testament.

It was February 19, 1918, and there was a hollow knock on the door of a simple cottage in England on the edge of town. The wind was howling, and the snow was hiding every green and cheerful thing from sight. No one answered. The man was lifting his hand to knock once more when he noticed a woman trudging on through the white mass. She was coming home from working another tiresome day at the bakery. She lifted her head and slowed her pace as she noticed the man. Thoughts flooded her head. She knew the very thing she had been dreading had come to pass.
“Clara Edwards?” said a younger gentleman, wearing an army uniform. “I’m very sorry.” He held out her husband’s helmet and dog tags.

Q. I noticed there is some required reading for my Self-Paced Omnibus course that is not included in the self-paced kit. Does that mean I need to purchase the Omnibus textbook separately?
