On Ash Wednesday, you probably noticed we didn’t say the “Gloria” in Mass. We “fast” from that during Lent – except on certain special feast days. In 2013, we will say the “Gloria” on each of the below days EXCEPT ONE. Which of the days below will we NOT say the Gloria? Find the answer in Lenten Adventure.

Sue Patrick’s Workbox System


An effective teaching system to reduce your organizational time and increase your child’s self-control, independence and learning.

This system will complement your existing curriculum!

Sue Patrick’s Workbox System has two very important components.  The first component teaches you how to optimize the benefits of homeschooling.  One of the reasons we home school is to provide the best teaching and learning environment for our children.  I will show you how to present your child’s work with purpose and fun, and allow you to be more systematic with appropriate materials.

I will explain how to make your current curriculum and work “make sense” to your child.  Often a child’s ability to succeed simply depends on having the material presented in smaller pieces that are especially tailored to him.  Also, presenting his material throughout the day with variety and enhanced teaching “angles” will make sure he truly learns.  While this is great for all children, I can address teaching low functioning children as well as gifted and distractible ones.

The second component is the physical structure of Sue Patrick’s Workbox Systemsm which will allow you to teach your child more effectively, and at the same time help you to better organize your school day.  Children using this system stay more focused and are more successful in learning and completing their school work independently.  With as little as one day’s work in restructuring your classroom, you will provide better organization for you and your child.  It will then be easier to set up a school day of curriculum, variety and fun, while steering your child toward independence and greater focus.

How Old Is Your Church?


If you are a Lutheran, your religion was founded by Martin Luther, an ex-monk of the Catholic Church in the year 1517.

If you belong to the Church of England, your religion was founded by King Henry VIII in the year 1534 because the Pope would not grant him a divorce with the right to re-marry.

If you are a Presbyterian, your religion was founded by John Knox in Scotland in the year 1560.

If you are a Protestant Episcopalian, your religion was an off-shoot of the Church of England, founded by Samuel Seabury in the American Colonies in the 17th century.

If you are a Congregationalist, your religion was originated by Robert Brown in Holland in 1582.

If you are a Methodist, your religion was launched by John and Charles Wesley in England in 1744.

If you are Unitarian, Theophilus Lindley founded your church in London in 1774.

If you are a Mormon (Latter Day Saints), Joseph Smith started your religion in Palmyra, N.Y., in 1829.

If you are a Baptist, you owe the tenets of your religion to John Smyth, who launched it in Amsterdam in 1606.

If you are of the Dutch Preformed Church, you recognise Michaelis Jones as founder, because he originated your religion in New York in 1628.

If you worship with the Salvation Army, your sect began with William Booth in London in 1865.

If you are a Christian Scientist, you look to 1879 as the year in which your religion was born and to Mrs Mary Baker-Eddy as it’s founder.

If you belong to one of the religious organisations known as ‘Church of the Nazarene’, ‘Pentecostal Gospel’, ‘Holiness Church’, ‘Pilgrim Holiness Church’, ‘Jehovas Witnesses’, your religion is one of the hundreds of new sects founded by men within the past 50 years.

If you are a Roman Catholic, you know that your religion was founded in the year 33 by Jesus Christ the Son of God, and that it has not changed since that time.

Even in these strange days, the above enumerated facts are still undeniable.
