Welcome back home to Mitford. We've been waiting for you
After five hectic years of retirement from Lord's Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from the land of his Irish ancestors. While he's glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing from his life: a pulpit. But when he's offered one, he decides he doesn't want it.
For years, he believed he had a few answers. Now he has questions. How can he possibly help Dooley's younger brother, Sammy, make it through the fallout of a disasterous childhood? Could doing a good deed for the town bookstore be the best thing for his befuddled spirit? And who was riding through town in a limo? Not Edith Mallory.
This series involves two important principles in teaching history to children: biography, which incorporates interesting stories about real people, and chronology, which gives the correct order to the events surrounding their lives. These studies are Biblically based and use Biblical standards to evaluate historical figures and events with a focus on people and cultures.
The material is spread out over the elementary years and proceeds at a leisurely pace, allowing the child to live with it for a period of months. Instead of getting just a glimmer of understanding (as students usually do in studying all of world history in just one year), students will really learn about the time periods.
This U.S. history text covers the history of our nation in a more expanded fashion. Students learn about the great events of American history from a traditional conservative perspective. Comprehension questions and map work activities are included in this colorful history book.
With USA on one side and the World on the other this large laminated outline map can be used when studying U.S. or world history, geography, exploration and more! Students enjoy labeling, coloring, and using it for many exercises. Write-on and wipe-off with Vis-a-Vis pens. This is our most popular map title.

"Nothing worth doing right is easy." -Mike Matheny Mike Matheny was just 41 and without professional managerial experience when he succeeded the legendary Tony LaRussa as skipper of the St. Louis Cardinals in 2012. While he has enjoyed immediate success, leading the Cards to the postseason three times in his first three years, people have noticed something else in Matheny's life, and unlike baseball, it's not measured in day-to-day results. It's based on a frankly worded letter he wrote to the parents of a little league team he coached, a letter that became an internet sensation and eventually a "manifesto." Matheny's tough-love philosophy contained his throwback beliefs that authority should be respected, di ... more

Why they vote Democrat? Did you know that most Blacks DO NOT support Affirmative Action? Who speaks for African-Americans? Does Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, and others, really speak for Black America? Who elected these "civil rights leaders?"
