  1. I'm referring to this: 1 Cor 12: 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledgeby means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues. Would this gift manifest itself in the way described in the book (I know it's a fiction book! I know it's not the Bible! Just curious about thi
  2. I just read a great kindle book called "Signaveria". It is set a couple of years after the rapture when everyone needs the mark of the beast to buy or sell. The main characters are teenagers, and tells how they handle life under a new, global government, led by the "antichrist". Here's the question: in the book, each of the characters learn to use their new spiritual gifts. One of them looks at an ordinary couple and "sees" demons instead. The book says this is "distinguishing between spirits". Is this what this gift does? Has anyone ever "seen" demons" in a person? Here's a link to th
  3. Hi Marie,

    Haven't seen any posts from you lately. I pray all is well with you and your family.



  4. Most women who get breast cancer have NO known risk factors. The biggest risk factor is getting older, and being a woman. Unfortunately, you now have two close relatives who have had breast cancer, gene or no, so that is a pretty big risk right there. Digital mammography has less radiation that traditional, and is becoming more and more readily available. I would definitely get a base-line mammogram now, then every year past 40. I had no know risk factors, and a mammogram found a small tumor when I was 45. I had both estrogen positive breast cancer (DCIS) and an aggressive, non-estro
  5. Here's what the Teaching Textbooks facebook page says: "2.0 UPDATE!: First, we want to apologize for the delay in getting these programs out. With that in mind, we are scheduled to receive the Algebra 1 the week of August 8th and the Pre-Algebra the week of August 15th. Please be patient with us as we try to get all of these orders out as soon as possible. It may take several days to get all of the orders out."

  7. This whole thread needs to be prefaced with "You know you homeschool when..." Really, I think the kids are writing with an accent sometimes. It's a way of writing down how they hear the other kids speak. Just like in some books the characters speak with an accent of some sort, and we, of course, (being homeschool moms) read these stories aloud with that accent, and with different voices.
  8. Hi: Sorry I don't have all the details, but is your chemo for breast cancer? Did you have reconstruction? I needed several blood transfusions, including platelets, in the middle of my chemo. Months later (after chemo ended), my reconstructed breast became infected, and the implant was removed. Turns out I had been slowly bleeding underneath it for months, maybe since the mastectomy 6 months earlier! I don't know how they could find this out, but I hope this isn't the case for you, and you'll be rebounding soon! Blessings!! Marie
  9. My son has been accepted to three different colleges now, and HE WON'T PICK ONE!! One is in another state, the other two closer. I just want to know how far away he'll be! I want to start mentally preparing for my loss, and for how I will fix my computer when he's gone! They are all fine choices. The indecision is going to be the death of me. Marie
  10. I was not myself for about two years, dealing with surgeries, chemo, more surgeries, complications etc. I learned SO much during those two years! It was a gift...one I never, never would have thought to ask for, but am so glad I received. Here are some things I learned: 1.My outer beauty is not important. Really. I have no vanity left. Inner beauty, defined as how you treat others, how you respond to stress, how you hold up when there is nothing left of you to hold up, that is your beauty. 2. God is my fortress and my strength. When I was most worried about the future, He gave me peace
  11. We bought the 4.3 HE Maytag top loader just a few months ago. l love it! The capacity is just right for our 6 member family. The inside seems just huge. Don't get the glass top, you just don't need to spend the extra money for looking at your clothes washing, fun as that can be. As for wrinkling, right after we bought it I noticed our clothes were more wrinkled. But then I found out my husband (who very sweetly does our personal laundry all on one day) was taking the clothes out of the dryer before the cycle was finished, to save time. Now he waits until the dryer has stopped, and w
  12. This really reads like an essay someone was required to write for school. It is written at a middle school or early high school level. Can you imagine the assignment? "Compare and contrast public school with homeschool". Or, "Compare and contrast two opposing veiwpoints, taking the side of one of them". So I wouldn't take this article too seriously.
  13. Yes, mammograms DO detect early cancers in that age group. Just not as well as in older women.
  14. When I bought my Fiestaware, I bought a look-alike set at Target at the same time, just for the sake of science (Which one was better?) This was 2 years ago. The look-alike set has chips, what's left of it. The Fiestaware, despite teenage dish washers and a in-a-hurry mother, is still perfect. Fiestaware wins.
  15. I often wondered about some of the used book prices listed on Amazon. Who is going to pay $150 for a used book when a new one costs $20? Then, someone told me why...by listing a book at a very high price, it brings up the average selling price of that particular used book. No one expects to sell the high priced book, but they will be able to sell another used book (or the same one) for a higher price because the average is higher.
