Is “I hate school” training for “I hate my job?”

Posted on May 9, 2011 at 8:04am 4 Comments

Do you know someone who hates their job?   You probably do.  I spoke with one over the weekend.  My young friend, a college graduate, hates her job.  At 25, she feels trapped and overwhelmed.  But yet she trudges off to her job to earn her very modest income because she has student loan debt.  Her dreams will have to be put on hold.  That is, if she can keep them alive. She comes home from her job each day so exhausted, she has no energy to look for other opportunities.  Or to create one for…

Alternatives to public school

Posted on May 4, 2011 at 9:57am 1 Comment

Are you looking for alternatives to public school?  You are not alone.  As I mentioned yesterday, there is a groundswell of voices crying out for better options in education.  Here’s some you may wish to consider:

Public Charter Schools- Contrary to the shrill voices of opposition, these are NOT private schools funded by tax dollars.  They are PUBLIC schools and receive tax dollars just like any other public school.  The difference is they are governed by an…

Great new opportunites in education

Posted on May 3, 2011 at 9:27am 0 Comments

There is a ground swell crying for reform in education.  With movies like “Waiting for Superman,” and “The Race to Nowhere,” the dialog concerning the plight of our public schools is picking up daily.

New developments neuroscience and understanding how the human brain is wired for learning opens new worlds to how we approach education.

Experts like…

Are we educating our kids...or brainwashing them?

Posted on March 2, 2011 at 11:38am 0 Comments

brainwash  (ˈbreɪnˌwɒʃ) — vb( tr ) to effect a radical change in the ideas and beliefs of (a person),

Is this not what is happening in our schools on a daily basis?  Moral neutrality, Outcome based education, Standardized testing, these are just a few of the tools being used daily to brainwash, er, effect a radical change in the ideas and beliefs of our children.

Consider a quote that hearkens back to 1902 from the newly formed General…

Finding the right tool in education

Posted on February 22, 2011 at 12:02pm 0 Comments

As I write this, I am listening to a flooring guy scrape the subfloor of our kitchen in preparation to lay new vinyl.  We tried to get as much done as we could in advance to keep our costs down but I’m left to wonder if we really did save money.

The time, the frustration and the apparent futility of our work…even with a rented tool was not nearly as fruitful as what I’m hearing this guy accomplish…because he has the right tools.

As we get older, we realize with increasing…

Hi Theresa. Boy, I sure your concern. It's true, I haven't spent as much time on the site lately. Mainly, it's been my wife having gone through neck surgery whilst being 16 weeks pregnant with our 5th. She's been pretty immobile for the past 3 months and over the next year it's gonna be all about baby. So, needless to say, my time has been split up much differently than before all this came. I hope to ease back in soon. I'm also working on a couple of ideas in my "spare" time. Music has always been a huge part of me, so I've been playing my horn a lot more...wanting to do my own thing...Sax A la Carte, as it were. :) The other is the whole bee thing. I really beelieve (pun intended) it to be an entertaining way to put my heart out there. Yeah, so all that with three boys in the house and a full-time job really challenges me to stay sane. Staying plugged in to the Lord is more important than ever at this point..for all of us really. My middle son and I are the only two believers in the house (long story). I hope you and yours are doing well. For what it's worth, I read your blog when I can. You're terrific, T. God bless. Talk soon. Jas

Hi Theresa,
I am so laughing......you have no idea how ignorant I am at this and you make it sound so easy. I have never done a blog nor a forum, needless to say I'm not real sure of myself or know where to start. But I'm game to learn.
I learned something wonderful that weekend with Brad, Wayne, and you; Papa God is quite capable of getting me where I need to be when I need to be there. I know that sounds simple but this is coming from the queen of figuring it out, just letting everything unfold with out helping was a foreign concept to me. It's also a whole lot less stressful to boot....lol. Thanks for being a part of what Papa God is doing in me!!

Theresa, maybe we could use some background music on the "Flung Shui" blog post. I can't get out of my head the image of you attacking that washer and "Everybody was Kung-Fu Fighting" playing in the background.
