A Man of God....My Dad

Posted by Lizzy Armentrout on June 23, 2010 at 3:50 PM Comments comments (134)

This last weekend was Father's Day; a day we as a nation have chosen to set aside to honor our fathers.  Most people will say that they have a great dad (that is unless you are a teen & in trouble at the moment! lol)  However, I believe you will agree after I introduce you to my dad that I truly do have a pretty spectacular father.

            In just a few days it’ll be time once again to start cleaning my classroom, taking downbulletin boards, storing teaching supplies for the summer.  Every year it seems as if the school year goes by faster and faster.  As I look at my students, I remember so well the first week when they looked more like children and now they look more like young teenagers and are ge...

Our pastor had recently went to S Africa and held tent meetings in Swalala about 30 mins drive outside of White River.  While there, he had the privilege of seeing 100 S Africans come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.  So now the missionary family is holding church services every Sunday afternoon out in the village area.  God blessed the missionaries with a vehicle (A Venture) that can seat 11 passengers when they f...

Posted by Lizzy Armentrout on October 4, 2009 at 4:26 PM Comments comments (3)

As a teacher this is an area that I wish I could have parents come to class for me to teach them. Over the 19 years I've been teaching, I've been amazed and saddened during parent meetings when I hear how parents work on studying and homework with their child and think they are doing it well.

This blog is going to address studying with a review sheet and/or notes for a test and/or quiz.
