  1. I need a Bible study resource for ds to use with the New Testament. Currently, he is working through the Old Testament using Taking the OT Challenge. You can click on the link to see it. I like this book's simplicity. It works through the OT with daily readings and very brief thought questions to help the student "chew" the passages read. Why didn't the author write Taking the NT Challenge????? https://g.co/kgs/zPeYuL Any ideas? It is important to me that the resource is simple to use, reads through most/preferably all the text, and offers a method by which the text can be "chewed." Thanks, everyone.
  2. Wow! Thank you all so much for such wonderful ideas! I had to be away for the afternoon, and I'm just now reading most of the comments. I will have to review them tomorrow because I'm just to tired to process everything now. If I have follow up questions, I'll post then. I REALLY appreciate your help!
  3. Thank you, Prairiewindmomma. I just checked. There is no Meals on Wheels where he lives. I've just called and left messages with three councils on aging in my area. Hopefully someone will call soon. I appreciate your suggestion!
  4. Ladies, he has Type II diabetes but is generally quite healthy. He has had a recent setback, though, and he just doesn't want to have to cook for himself anymore. I know there are food plans that make meal prep easy. These companies send you everything you need for a meal, and you only have to provide minimal effort to have one ready. He is in a very small town. There is a super Walmart, and a few grocery stores, but that's it. There is no Whole Foods, etc... However, I'm open to shopping where I live which has specialty stores and then shipping to him. I need to consider all options. Can anyone help me brainstorm some possibilities or offer opinions from experience? I would like information on companies that offer this kind of service as well as options through Amazon, Whole Foods, etc... I know nothing about this at this point. I'm at the beginning of my research.
  5. Hi, I'm posting on my mom's account. I'm thinking about getting a Twitter account for my Etsy business, TreasureFilledRooms, but I'm not sure whether to get a personal or a business account. From my research, a personal account might get more traffic than a business account. Could I even make a personal account but use it as a business account? I'm trying to increase my marketing and get the word out about my business, so I recently also signed up for a business Facebook account. Just wondering if I should also add Twitter. I would appreciate any thoughts/stories/advice!
  6. Hi Kelly, A teacher at the co-op where I teach showed me this one: https://awwapp.com/ I think it probably works very well for most people. I tried it with my English class and had trouble with it. The difference, I think, was that I tried using it from home. We have satellite internet, and somehow, I think that influenced how it worked. When I first tried it, it did work. It was wonderful. I never confirmed what the problem really was. Give it a try.
  7. He is risen indeed! 2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. So grateful that we serve such a holy God who gave His greatest gift, Jesus, who paid the ultimate sacrifice to purchase our salvation and to restore fellowship with Himself. What wondrous love is this, O my soul! He is alive!
  8. I am really enjoying Joy Dawson's books. She is a 93ish year old woman who served as a missionary with her husband of 65 years with Youth With A Mission. Probably her most well-known book is Intimate Friendship with God. I have also read and enjoyed Ruined for the Ordinary. She has other titles too, and I hope to read them all over time. Joy's heart in all of her writing is focused on glorifying the Lord and helping others to come to know Him. These are works of nonfiction, and they have the potential to deepen your relationship with Jesus. I can highly recommend them.
  9. Thank you so much for replying, LJPPKGFGSC. I will pass on all of the suggestions, and hopefully we'll find something to use next year. Thanks, all!
  10. Thanks, ladies. I'll take a look. What do you like about Canvas? How do you use it? Does anyone use Google Classroom?
  11. I work at our local homeschool co-op, and for several years now, we have been using Engrade to keep grades and attendance records for our students. We can also email through Engrade and keep a record of correspondence between teachers, parents, and students. Engrade is part of McGraw Hill, and they are not offering this service anymore beginning next year, so my co-op has to find something to take its place. So far, all that has been researched is proving to be very expensive compared to Engrade. Parents only pay $7/student currently, but all the record-keeping programs our director has research runs into the thousands of dollars- way over our budget. I believe that we are trying to target around $300/month overall, but truly, cost is very much a factor. We need to keep the cost as low as possible. I thought I would ask all of you very wonderful, knowledgeable ladies if you could make any recommendations. I know we've checked Blackboard, but I don't remember any other names. We are trying to get something lined up to begin using for the next school year (2019-2020). Thanks for any help! PS... Cross-posting on the other boards.
