A devotional to encourage you on your homeschooling journey and a journal to cradle your prayers and praises, this book is like a trusted friend. Read each section daily or weekly and then jot down your prayer requests, blessings, praises, and struggles. Nehemiah of old re-built the wall and gates of Jerusalem in 52 days. You too can strengthen the boundaries and standards of your home and homeschool in 52 days (or weeks, if you prefer). This devotional journal will help keep you focused on that task. Whether it takes you less than two months or a whole year, it does not matter. What counts is that you take time to pray for your homeschool, for yourself, and for your family. Enjoy the journey!
The Golden Chain of Homer, in its various forms and editions, is perhaps one of the most descriptive and least ambiguous manuscripts on alchemical lore and the early explanations given during the late Renaissance and early Enlightenment periods regarding chemical and earthly processes. Less concerned with celestial and angelic symbolism and more focused on outright experimentation, it covers the processes of fixation, putrefaction, and generation in far more depth than most works of the era. It seeks to prove the chemical processes it describes and admonishes the reader to try the same things themselves using fairly simplistic compounds and experiments to generate life from the lifeless and create materials which in the era seemed markedly different from the original things being transformed using heat, light, humidification, and distillation. Its philosophical content is dense but understandable and its chemical content mostly literal.
'Oh, you can call me Rusty. Everyone back home does.'
It was the longest drought that anyone in the county had ever seen. Everyone was praying for rain. The fields were dry, the animals were thirsty and everyone was really hot. But only one little girl really believed that God would answer and she taught her minister a lesson.
Find out how she did this by reading the rest of the story and others in this book. Read about the drought, the poor man who was made rich and the shepherd boy who lost his sheep. You will also read about people and lots of children who faithfully stood up for Jesus. Scriptural references are taken from the King James Version of the Bible and the questions are based on this. Suitable for 7-12 year olds.
