I am a fan of the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum, so I was excited to learn about their new game based Keyboarding Without Tears curriculum. The new curriculum teaches pre-keyboarding and keyboarding as well as general computer skills. The curriculum offers lessons from grades Kindergarten through the fifth grade, using the same child friendly type of teaching of Handwriting Without Tears.  The program runs on PC's Macs, interactive whiteboards, iPads, and other tablets.  A one year license is very affordable and under $10. If you would like more information please visit the website.  I can not wait to try this product myself!

As a mom who works from home by serving others, I do not get many breaks. But yesterday was different. I had no kids needing childcare and no kids needing tutoring, which is rare, but very nice. I got to sleep in a little and just take it easy all day. I am very thankful for those types of rare days and I cherish them. Today is a normal day, and I feel refreshed and ready for what this week has in store.

Why We Celebrate Every Spring

Yesterday was Easter, a day about Jesus and his resurrection from being dead for three days. I just wanted to highlight some other unique characteristics about Jesus and my faith that is different from other religions. Jesus not only died and came back alive after three days, but he is also the only person to ever have lived a sinless life and willingly died for the sins of the world.

I consider myself a follower of Jesus Christ and myself a Christian, even though I know that term is used loosely among many. What makes my faith different than others is that salvation and eternal life comes at no cost and without any deeds or works. Being a follower of Jesus allows for eternity with Him and God simply by acknowledging Jesus is Lord and believing that he was raised from the dead. "...if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe with your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved." Romans 10:9 New King James version.  I do not know of any other religions that makes salvation so simple. Salvation and eternity in Heaven comes only by believing!  You do not have to be good or do good things to be saved.

John 3:16 is a famous verse. "For God so loved the world that be gave his only son. For whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." If you do not know Jesus I want to challenge you to learn more about Him. Also if your not saved, I want to ask why not? You can confess with your mouth and believe in any place that you are in. The biggest misconception about my faith is that your life has to be right and in order before you get saved, but that is not true. Those who are good and have their life in order do not need salvation. Salvation is for those who do not have their lives in order and who are living in sin. If you are living in sin and you want to spend eternity in heaven, then just verbally confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that Jesus raised from the dead. Salvation is just that simple!
