Music is Simple

Click here for more music posts!

Music is simple. It is a part of the human existence since we were first made. Music starts as a mother’s heartbeat that soothes the child in the womb. It is ingrained in us from birth as it connects us together. Just as a child knows her mother’s heartbeat, friends connect over a pop song, musicians connect while playing together, and we can connect with the past when listening to music from different ages. This is why music is simple. We don’t need to make it complicated when we share music with each other.

Catholic Challenge

I will admit, I haven't blogged about my faith lately. I will also admit that is because I haven't been taking much time to poke the spiritual fire in my life.  It can be a chore, but one I need to focus on. I have decided to grab a book off my shelf and just read it.

Heroes of History from YWAM Publishing Review

For the last several weeks we've been reviewing a Digital Unit Study focused around the book Heroes of History - Milton Hershey from YWAM Publishing. Not only is this a great biographical novel, but with the added unit study and a special trip to Hershey, PA, history came alive for Sebastian in a way I couldn't do on my own.

Let the Blind Read!

by: Sebastian

       Louis Braille, who was blind, loved to learn and read. He diligently created a system to enable the eager blind to read. It's called the Braille system. Sadly, the teachers banned the system. The raised dots on the page helped the blind read as fast as a librarian! Because of that, the teachers later approved of Braille. Today, the blind can read and write because of the book-loving Louis Braille.
