- I wrote Avoiding Comma Kazi for a composition class. The students just seemed to keep making the same punctuation mistakes over and over. After I created the paper, I made them memorize the 3 rules. It definitely helped.
- Playing the Game Called Grammar–Who makes up these rules anyway? Or do they just “happen”? The answers may surprise you.
- What’s a Nice Kid Like You Doing At Home on a School Day? (Or, Why We Homeschool)
- Homeschooling Resources I Recommend
- Publishing Tools for the enterprising student or adult
- I know, I know, this is really random: Rubik’s Cube–You can do it
- 5 Keys to Interpreting Scripture–It is amazing how often we don’t follow these simple and classic guidelines for interpreting the Bible.
- Uniqueness of Moses’ Laws
- King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream–Fulfilled Prophecy in Scripture
- St. Patrick’s Day: Gospel in a Shamrock. The story of St. Patrick from King Alfred’s English.
- Crucifixion (Easter)–Not Original to the Romans

Notes from Books
These are positively NOT reviews. These are just notes and quotes I took down from books that I knew I would want to re-visit. So this started out for my own use, but then I thought that others might glean a little bit from these too. All of these are books I recommend.
- Cloud, Henry: One Life Solution: Reclaim Your Personal Life While Achieving Greater Personal Success [on general life principles by one of the authors of the well-known Boundaries.]
- Covey, Stephen: The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People [My husband started jokingly calling the author “St. Stephen” because his book had such a powerful effect on my life.]
- Peck, M. Scott: The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values, and Spiritual Growth [considered a classic in psychology/self-help literature; autobiographical; life principles but composed during his pre-Christian days]
- Stafford, William: Writing the Australian Crawl–a very unusual book on the art of writing.
The following books deal with the problem of evil:
- Hart, David Bentley: Doors of the Sea: Where Was God in the Tsunami?
[on the problem of evil–absolutely nothing else quite like it! Short but not exactly an easy read.]
- Peck, M. Scott: People of the Lie: The Hope for Healing Human Evil [On the problem of evil and written after Peck’s conversion to Christ.]
- Wright, Christopher: The God I Don’t Understand
