Wreaths Of Maine - John Allen's at it Again!
Topic: The Kids


Last year, John Allen began his entrepreneurial career by selling Christmas wreaths with "Wreaths of Maine". Wreaths of Maine is a company that sells Christmas wreaths and primarily works with homeschoolers. He ended up earning over $60 from all of his hard work. This year, because of sickness and other difficulties, we haven't been able to do quiet as much selling but, he is giving it good try and hopes to, this week, make up for it. Last year he gave some of the money to us for Christmas. This go around, however, all of the money is going to him to put into savings.

This year, again, we are making him do most of the work and he is doing very well. He's memorized his spiel, learned how to fill out the order forms and paperwork, and is learning to be positive and persevere when no one seems to be buying.

He (and we) would love it if you would think about buying one. If you are interested, you can visit the Wreaths of Maine web site at http://www.wreathsofmaine.com  to check out their products. Just enter John Allen's code #4086 where it is called for.

Thanks ahead of time. John Allen would be thrilled.

Home Makeover - Good News Mission Edition
Topic: Ministry

So, Ok, it wasn't really Home Makeover from TV. But it was just as good! Last spring I was contacted by a church from GA who was looking for a mission project to get involved with. Our regional director, Ken Grubb, told them about us and we got into contact with each other. Six months later they were here! Because of sickness and some financial difficulties with a few families, only three men ended up coming.  Our three great volunteers were, Tim Remaley, their fearless leader, who runs a men's drug and alcohol rehab center; Richard, one of the men who went through the rehab program and has an awsome testimony; and, Brother Don, who plays a mean guitar and is the pastor of their church. Originally they were just going to come and paint the mission, but they ended up painting our whole house as well! They were helped by Good News Mission's treasurer and husband, Virginia and Royce Harris. I tried to help, but probably ended up being more of a nuisance than I'm worth. Sarah and her ladies cooked and cleaned and made sure everyone had what they needed. Wednesday night, their last night here, Tim, who learned to cook in Europe, cooked an awesome meal for all of the people who come to the mission. Pastor Don played his guitar and led in music, and Richard gave his testimony. It was a fantastic ending to a fantastic week. Check out the following pictures.

                                 Tim and pastor cooking.                                                                                  Virginia with Miss Marie.

                                         Richard's awesome testimony.                                                                      The "Strolling Musician".

                    Richard and Pastor with Sarah and some of her ladies.                                       Richard, Royce, Tim and Pastor Don.

Thank you, Lord, for Tim, Richard and Pastor Don travelling all of this way to help us out. Please bless them in their ministries and lives and bring them back to us again next year. Thank you, also, Lord, for our friends Royce and Virginia. Please bless them as they continue to volunteer and help us during the year. Thank you for this ministry that you have given us to do. Bless the folks that we work with. Amen

It's Back! Have I mentioned that I like Vision Forum?
Topic: Favorite Links

I know. I used to mention Vision Forum (VF) all of the time, but, I haven't talked about Vision Forum (VF) in a long time, so no one should be complaining. Anyway, I feel that this is important. This year is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, and the 150th anniversary of his work On the Origin of Species. Many, many secular movie companies and television networks are producing specials that will continue to indoctrinate our children in Darwin's false views of evolution. Vision Forum is one of the only companies that have gone back to where it all began - The Galapagos Islands - to produce a film to counter Charles Darwin's mistaken theories. The Galapagos was where Darwin began formulating his evolutionary theories but VF goes back to the same islands and viewed the same things and came to a very different conclusion. That they prove the theory of creation. Just click on the above banner to go to the Vision Forum website and check it out.

Laundry Detergent Update!
Topic: General

The detergent was a success! It didn't gel as well as I thought, but it raising olives buttonworks. After reading my original post, I realized I didn't give credit where credit is due. I mentioned that I combined detergent recipes to make my soap, but one of the main recipes that influenced me was one that I got from a fellow TOS Homeschool Crew member. And, she's a fellow Tennessean as well! And, her blog is nominated in four categories of the Homeschool Blog Awards. Her blog's name is Raising Olives. Just press on the name or on her button on the right and go visit her blog. She has a lot of really neat money saving ideas! While you're there, click on one of her categories to vote for her blog. Don't forget to vote for Families Again in the "Best Homeschool Dad Blog" category as well. Just click here and it will take you straight to the voting page.
