God and Planned Parenthood from Garland D. Schnack

God and Planned Parenthood

God has proven how merciful and long suffering He is toward this wicked world. When He looks down upon the holocaust that this generation has inflicted on millions of innocent children who have been ripped from their mother's womb. And now we learn that the provider of this awful practice is violating the man made and moral law in marketing the body parts of these children. And this is being done to benefit the adult's health who participate in this practice and using them for research. How barbaric and cruel. This is much worse than ISIS, the Islamic terrorists, who we see on the news beheading adults and young children.

How long will the Lord delay His wrath? Our government, our President and the Supreme Court have endorsed abortion since Woe vs. Wade. Our tax money is given to assist in this practice of murder. Why? Because sinful people want to rid themselves of the responsibility of their own actions. Sinful people have violated God's commandments and committed fornication. They have been led to believe, by the modern culture, that their pleasure comes before their responsibility.

I pray that this will cause you to repent and turn to God. That you will teach your children to believe in God and humble yourselves and turn from your wicked ways. God loves us so much but surely His patience is running out.

Your Servant in Christ
Elder Garland D. Schnack

Urgent Prayer Request - Gary Valle

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Lynne Erickson Valle

Urgent Prayer Request

Dear Garland,

​Please ask your list to pray for my husband Gary Valle to get a new job contract. Last Friday the company he works for laid him off of work, even though they had just renewed his contract. They gave him one weeks notice. Because he is a contractor he does not get severance pay. A recruiter found a job that would be perfect right here in the KC metro area and gave Gary a test assignment to do over the weekend, which he did and turned in Monday morning but he has not heard back.

I'm asking people to pray that he gets this job or one equally as good for him ASAP, as we can't afford to go without a paycheck.

Thank you and may the Lord bless you!

Riches from the Scriptures by Elder Neil Kerswell, Queensland.

Chapter 7 Study on Zion

Part 2 The aim of this study is to continue giving pieces of the total picture of Zion, helping us to better

understand in our own minds what Zion is and how Zion will come about.

3 Nephi 9:56-63

[3 Ne 9:56] And it shall come to pass, saith the Father, that the sword of my justice shall hang over them at that

day; and except they repent, it shall fall upon them, saith the Father, yea, even upon all the nations of the Gentiles.

[3 Ne 9:57] And it shall come to pass that I will establish my people, O house of Israel.

[3 Ne 9:58] And behold, this people will I establish in this land, unto the fulfilling of the covenant which I made

with your father Jacob; and it shall be a new Jerusalem.

[3 Ne 9:59] And the powers of heaven shall be in the midst of this people; yea, even I will be in the midst of you.

[3 Ne 9:60] Behold, I am he of whom Moses spake, saying, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of

your brethren, like unto me, him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

[3 Ne 9:61] And it shall come to pass that every soul who will not hear that prophet, shall be cut off from among

the people.

[3 Ne 9:62] Verily, I say unto you, Yea; and all the prophets from Samuel, and those that follow after, as many as

have spoken, have testified of me.

[3 Ne 9:63] And behold ye are the children of the prophets; and ye are of the house of Israel; and ye are of the

covenant which the Father made with your fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed, shall all the kindreds of

the earth be blessed;

 Except they repent the justice of God is going to fall upon all the nations of the Gentiles.

 When Gentiles as a whole fall, God is going to establish his people Israel again in the land of America and the

place shall be called a New Jerusalem.

 The powers of Heaven shall be in the midst of New Jerusalem, even Christ shall be in their midst.

3 Nephi 9:101-10:8

[3 Ne 9:101] Yea, wo be unto the Gentiles, except they repent, for it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Father,

that I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee, and I will destroy thy chariots, and I will cut off the cities of

thy land and throw down all thy strongholds;

[3 Ne 9:102] And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thy hand, and thou shalt have no more soothsayers:

[3 Ne 9:103] Thy graven images I will also cut off, and thy standing images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt

no more worship the works of thy hands;

[3 Ne 9:104] And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee; so will I destroy thy cities.

[3 Ne 9:105] And it shall come to pass that all lyings, and deceivings, and envyings, and strifes, and priestcrafts and

whoredoms, shall be done away.

[3 Ne 9:106] For it shall come to pass, saith the Father, that at that day, whosoever will not repent and come unto

my beloved Son, them will I cut off from among my people, O house of Israel, and I will execute vengeance and

fury upon them, even as upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.

[3 Ne 10:1] But if they will repent, and hearken unto my words, and harden not their hearts, I will establish my

church among them, and they shall come in unto the covenant, and be numbered among this the remnant of Jacob,

unto whom I have given this land for their inheritance, and they shall assist my people, the remnant of Jacob;

[3 Ne 10:2] And also, as many of the house of Israel as shall come, that they may build a city, which shall be called

the New Jerusalem;

[3 Ne 10:3] And then shall they assist my people that they may be gathered in, who are scattered upon all the face

of the land, in unto the New Jerusalem.

[3 Ne 10:4] And then shall the power of heaven come down among them; and I also will be in the midst, and then

shall the work of the Father commence, at that day even when this gospel shall be preached among the remnant of

this people.

[3 Ne 10:5] Verily, I say unto you, At that day shall the work of the Father commence among all the dispersed of

my people; yea, even the tribes which have been lost, which the Father hath led away out of Jerusalem.

[3 Ne 10:6] Yea, the work shall commence among all the dispersed of my people, with the Father, to prepare the

way whereby they may come unto me, that they may call on the Father in my name;

[3 Ne 10:7] Yea, and then shall the work commence, with the Father, among all nations, in preparing the way

whereby his people may be gathered home to the land of their inheritance.

[3 Ne 10:8] And they shall go out from all nations; and they shall not go out in haste, nor go by flight; for I will go

before them, saith the Father, and I will be their rearward. And then shall that which is written come to pass.

 Woe unto the Gentiles in the last days except they repent for God is going to destroy them, cutting them off

from amongst his people Israel.

 For those of the Gentiles who will repent, God will establish his Church amongst them, allowing them to assist

God’s people the remnant of Jacob and as many of Israel who will come in, to build the New Jerusalem.

Showing that the work of the Father has commenced in the gathering even of the lost tribes of Israel. God will

do a work among all nations to prepare the way that his people may be gathered home.

 When God gathers His people He will go before them and after them.


[Luke 17:34] I tell you, in that night there shall be two in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

Two shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

[Luke 17:35] Two shall be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left.

[Luke 17:36] And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord, shall they be taken.

[Luke 17:37] And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is gathered; or, in other words, whithersoever the

saints are gathered, thither will the eagles be gathered together; or, thither will the remainder be gathered together.

[Luke 17:38] This he spake, signifying the gathering of his saints; and of angels descending and gathering the

remainder unto them; the one from the bed, the other from the grinding, and the other from the field, whithersoever

he listeth.

[Luke 17:39] For verily there shall be new heavens, and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

[Luke 17:40] And there shall be no unclean thing; for the earth becoming old, even as a garment, having waxed in

corruption, wherefore it vanisheth away, and the footstool remaineth sanctified, cleansed from all sin.

 In the last days the saints will be gathered together, and where they are, the angels will gather any other

righteous people from their day or night activities to be with the body of saints.

 There is going to be a new heaven and a new earth.

Ether 6:4-14

[Eth 6:4] Behold, Ether saw the days of Christ, and he spake concerning a New Jerusalem upon this land; and he

spake also concerning the house of Israel, and the Jerusalem from whence Lehi should come; after it should be

destroyed, it should be built up again a holy city unto the Lord;

[Eth 6:5] Wherefore it could not be a New Jerusalem, for it had been in a time of old, but it should be built up

again, and become a holy city of the Lord: and it should be built up unto the house of Israel;

[Eth 6:6] And that a New Jerusalem should be built up upon this land, unto the remnant of the seed of Joseph, for

which things there has been a type; for as Joseph brought his father down into the land of Egypt, even so he died


[Eth 6:7] Wherefore the Lord brought a remnant of the seed of Joseph out of the land of Jerusalem, that he might be

merciful unto the seed of Joseph, that they should perish not, even as he was merciful unto the father of Joseph, that

he should perish not;

[Eth 6:8] Wherefore the remnant of the house of Joseph shall be built up upon this land; and it shall be a land of

their inheritance; and they shall build up a holy city unto the Lord, like unto the Jerusalem of old; and they shall no

more be confounded, until the end come, when the earth shall pass away.

[Eth 6:9] And there shall be a new heaven and a new earth; and they shall be like unto the old, save the old have

passed away, and all things have become new.

[Eth 6:10] And then cometh the New Jerusalem; and blessed are they who dwell therein, for it is they whose

garments are white through the blood of the lamb; and they are they who are numbered among the remnant of the

seed of Joseph, who were of the house of Israel.

[Eth 6:11] And then also cometh the Jerusalem of old; and the inhabitants thereof, blessed are they, for they have

been washed in the blood of the Lamb;

[Eth 6:12] And they are they who were scattered and gathered in from the four quarters of the earth, and from the

north countries, and are partakers of the fulfilling of the covenant which God made with their father Abraham.

[Eth 6:13] And when these things come, bringeth to pass the scripture which saith, There are they who were first,

who shall be last; and there are they who were last, who shall be first.

[Eth 6:14] And I was about to write more, but I am forbidden; but great and marvelous were the prophecies of

Ether, but they esteemed him as nought, and cast him out, and he hid himself in the cavity of a rock by day, and by

night he went forth viewing the things which should come upon the people.

 There shall be two holy cities in the last days for the gathering of Israel, and those whom have been

adopted in and had their garments washed clean through the ministry of Christ.

 Revelations 21:1-14 A new heaven and a new earth - The New Jerusalem.

[Rev 21:1] And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and

there was no more sea.

[Rev 21:2] And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride

adorned for her husband.

[Rev 21:3] And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will

dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

[Rev 21:4] And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor

crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.

[Rev 21:5] And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write; for

these words are true and faithful.

[Rev 21:6] And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him

that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

[Rev 21:7] He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

[Rev 21:8] But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers

and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the

second death.

[Rev 21:9] And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven last plagues, and talked with me,

saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

[Rev 21:10] And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the

holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

[Rev 21:11] Having the glory of God; and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone,

clear as crystal;

[Rev 21:12] And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written

thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel;

[Rev 21:13] On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

[Rev 21:14] And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the


 The Holy Cities of God will be taken up into heaven and returned again to the New Heaven and the New

Earth. There shall be no death or sorrow, Those that overcome shall inherit all things.

Summary of noted points

 When Gentiles as a whole fall, God is going to establish his people Israel again in the land of America and the

place shall be called a New Jerusalem.

 The powers of Heaven shall be in the midst of the New Jerusalem, even Christ shall be in their midst.

 Woe unto the Gentiles in the last days except they repent for God is going to destroy them, cutting them off

from amongst his people Israel.

 For those of the Gentiles who will repent, God will establish his Church amongst them, allowing them to assist

God’s people the remnant of Jacob and as many of Israel who will come in, to build the New Jerusalem.

Showing that the work of the Father has commenced in the gathering even of the lost tribes of Israel. God will

do a work among all nations to prepare the way that his people may be gathered home.

 When God gathers his people he will go before them and after them.

 In the last days the saints will be gathered together, and where they are, the angels will gather any other

righteous people from their day or night activities to be with the body of saints.

 There is going to be a new heaven and a new earth.

 There shall be two holy cities in the last days for the gathering of Israel, and those whom have been adopted in

and had their garments washed clean through the ministry of Christ.

 The Holy Cities of God will be taken up into heaven and returned again to the New Heaven and the New Earth.

There shall be no death or sorrow, Those that overcome shall inherit all things.


I hope you have enjoyed reading the scriptural references in this book and learning of the insights and

understandings God has brought into my life. We are told not to hide our light, but to let it shine. The only reason

we have light is because of the Goodness, Love, Grace and Mercy of God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

I have entered into a covenant with Him and God has brought me much joy. It is my hope and prayer that my

children will investigate these things and feast upon His Word in their private studies and lay hold upon the Rod of

Iron that leads to life Eternal and never let go.

As an Elder in Christ’s church, my responsibility and stewardship goes far beyond ministering to my own family

whom God has entrusted into my care.

Therefore I desire to bring ministry unto anyone who will listen with a willing, open and honest heart. I have shared

these words with you the reader according to the leadings of the Holy Spirit which has been with me over the years

and up until now.

I have endeavoured to be prayerful as I have written and collated this book, and to be in the good spirit at all times.

I ask you to study these things out for yourself and allow God to lead you according to his guidance and direction

to form your own opinions, developing your own relationship with him, in your own special way.

To fulfill the scripture that tells us the Body of Christ (His Church) is made up of many members and not all have

the same gifts. But all are important and have something special and unique to offer to the whole.

This concludes the study series “Riches from the Scriptures” by Elder Neil Kerswell, Brisbane. I trust that our

readers have enjoyed the series. Our thanks to Bro.Neil for granting permission for their inclusion in our

Newsletter. Editor

May you be blest is my prayer in the Name of Jesus Christ Amen

Tamworth News submitted by Sr. Bev.Wilkinson

Greetings from Tamworth. No meetings were held from the latter part of June early July due to illness.

Our thoughts, love and sympathy go to Sister Mary Dunn and Family on the passing of our beloved

Brother Priest Colin Dunn on the 1st of July 2015. Elders Peter and Danny Archer presided over Colin’s

graveside Funeral Service on Wednesday 8th of July at Bannaby Church Cemetery near Taralga.

An early Surprise 80th Birthday Dinner was held at the Town Green Inn at Port Macquarie on Saturday

11th of July for Sister Daphne Schubert. Her family came from Tumut, Tamworth, Sydney and Port

Macquarie and she was surprised.

Members met at 26 Higgins Lane on Sunday 19th July. Bob and I gave the family Worship. Bob

welcomed us and gave the Prayer and I read the Spiritual Power in Music. Elder Peter preached the

Sermon. He admonished us, "To keep the Sabbath Holy and every day give Thanks to the Lord and be

willing to stand and bear witness of his Love, Goodness and Mercy. The Lord told Apostle Peter three

times to feed my lambs, feed my Sheep, feed my Sheep.”: John 21: 15-17. “And thus the Gospel began to

be preached from the beginning being declared by Holy Angels sent forth from the presence of God; and

by his own voice and by the gift of the Holy Ghost”: Genesis 5: 44. This is an everlasting Gospel.

Priest Josh Loyd presided. She enjoyed the service as with her health issues it is not always easy for Sr


Well we thoroughly enjoyed our month's visit by Josh and Claire and our grandson Isaac. Sadly it was

over all too quickly.

On Tuesday June 23rd we travelled to Sydney where we caught up with Br. Danny Archer and had

lunch with him, then we rode the ferry to Manly Beach and wandered around. Claire really enjoyed

seeing the sea side. Then we went and booked into our motel, rested for an hour then off again to Darling

Harbour for dinner and enjoyed some gelato after dinner. We walked a bit more and said our prayers and

goodbyes with Danny.

Then on Wednesday June 24th we drove Josh and Claire and Isaac to the Airport, they had an early

flight 9:50 am. We said our goodbyes and waited until the plane departed, then drove back to Newcastle.

On July 1st we celebrated Kelly's birthday with a nice lunch together and Sr. Donna Arnall’s birthday

was on July 6th. July seems to be a big birthday month in our family.

Just wanted to mention when we were in America, we did have dinner with Doug and Judi Smith and

her mother, it was a lovely evening, we tried to catch up with Hal and Pat Chadwick but because it was

short notice we did not get to see them this time!.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Sr Mary Dunn and family. Saddened to hear about Br. Colin. We are

thinking of you all.

Victoria News. Elder Murray and Sr.Delma Broughton responded to an urgent call for ministry from

Railroad For Sale

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Bob Cackler

I have a wooden railroad for sale. It has 30 feet of track and one car that is designed to carry three 5-gallon buckets (or a load of grandkids). I built it to use to spread gravel in the crawl space of a house. I dumped the gravel into the opening of the crawl space and then used the railroad to distribute the gravel under the house. It worked very well for that purpose. If interested, please give me a call or an email. I would like to have $50 for it to use the money for another purpose.

Prayers and help needed for Lynn and Linda Ridenhour

Lynn Ridenhour is a Baptist minister who believes and promotes the Book of Mormon and the Restoration message. He is known and respected by many in all the Restoration factions for his writings and presentations on LDS/RLDS History as it pertains to the manifestations of the Holy Spirit. He has been diagnosed with a rare form of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He will be undergoing chemo treatments for six months.

The Ridenhours own a small home at Lake Tapawingo that is in need of bathroom repairs and removing mold. They have furniture and boxes that need to be removed ASAP from their basement and put in a storage unit on 40 Hwy. We are organizing volunteers for this Saturday to get that done - 9:00am – Noon.

If you know Lynn and Linda and can spare even a half hour this Saturday, the 18th, it would be appreciated. They need a truck to haul the pieces and boxes. Dollies would help also. Linda is checking agencies that can do home repairs for low income families. If you have information on any groups who do that kind of work, it would be helpful, too.

Please pray for the Ridenhours as they move into this trial.

Congratulations on choosing to homeschool your children!! Our Heavenly Father desires for you as

parents, to teach your children His ways with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He desires for you to be

the most important and prominent influence in the lives of your children, which He has given to you.

Did you know that each year your child is in public school, you are allowing someone other than yourself

to influence your child 1,480 hours. This is not counting the time spent in extracurricular activities, or

influences from entertainment. Did you know that every year our state and federal governments want

your child to be in school MORE hours and MORE days per year? How many days can you lose and still

expect your child to keep the values you are teaching them? The more YOU are influencing your child,

the less SOMEONE ELSE is influencing your child. Very few children can withstand the pressure of

peers or the desire to please their teacher with enough consistency to keep their values and views

imparted by their parents. As strong as we like to think our children are in the Lord, until they’ve been

able to understand and articulate their Christian values well enough, kids will more likely adapt to the

world’s view espoused by their peers. Children should never be sacrificed on the altar of “socialization”.

Homeschooling is a ministry TO your children, FROM their parents, and BLESSED by our Heavenly Father.

It is recommended that if you are not already a member of HSLDA (Homeschoolers Legal

Defense Association), that you join this organization. This organization keeps current on any

legislation or laws passed that will affect homeschoolers, and will also provide legal advice if any

homeschool situation arises. Another organization that is also statewide and has local chapters, and

provides a lot of helpful information about educational and social opportunities for homeschoolers in

our area, is the FHE (Families for Home Education). To become a member and be put on their contact

list, go to

Become a student yourself of your child. This is one of the reasons homeschooling is so beneficial for

your children…their education is tailor-made for them. Here is a great resource which includes a

section on “Knowing Your Child’s Learning Style”.


Establish goals for the year. What are some weak areas you want to strengthen and what challenges

would you like to see your child rise to in areas of strength? Think not only about academics, but also

character development, leadership and service!

The Kingdom Co-op is a Christian homeschool educational cooperative based

on scriptural truth. The group’s primary vision is to see God bless our individual homeschools through

our cooperative effort. It is the intent of the group, as much as possible, to provide enrichment classes

and learning experiences for our children by using Christian resources, and parents/Christian

professionals through whom there is an abundance of giftedness, talent, educational backgrounds and

work history experience available to us.


Kingdom Co-op will meet every Friday morning , beginning September 11th through December 4th .

There will not be a meeting on November 27th, due to Thanksgiving. There will be twelve meetings

scheduled for the fall semester. Morning classes will begin at 9:00 with a short worship and

announcements, followed by classes. Two class periods will be offered for the Jr/Sr High, 75 min. each.

Three class periods will be offered for elementary ages, so they are shorter in duration. (50 min. each)

There will be a light lunch served at 11:45 for all who wish to participate. Parents are asked to complete

a suggestion list of foods they want their children to have. A lunch menu will be posted at the

beginning of the term, so there may be time to accommodate any special dietary needs. Lunch count

will be taken the week prior, so appropriate amounts will be prepared.

Attached is a list of proposed classes for the different age groups. For the younger children (K – 5th

grade), these classes are under three categories: creativity, outdoors/active, and enhanced learning.

For the older children (junior through senior high), these classes are enrichment classes that may also be

applied toward their hours of core classes at home. Some of these classes will be divided into 4 week

rotations, depending on the number of students enrolled in each class. Some classes will be held the

entire 12 week period, again, depending on enrollment and subject.

Family tuition of $20.00 per semester. There MAY be a class materials fee, maximum of $20.00/class.

An example of a fee schedule may look like this: (some classes will have no fees)


Class 1 $20.00 $3.00

Class 2 $3.00 $0

Class 3 $6.00 $5.00

Child B $ 8.00 = $57.00 Total


1. Enrichment Science – Human Anatomy and Physiology

Textbook resource: Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology

These students will be giving glory to God as they discover what’s going on inside their bodies. From the

brain in their head to the nails on their toes, students will uncover fascinating facts, engaging activities,

intriguing experiments, and loads of fun learning about the human body and how to keep it working

well. Students will voyage through 12 lessons covering many subjects, such as the body systems:

skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, nervous, and more! They’ll study how God

designed their immune system to protect them, along with what makes them a unique creation of God.

As they work their way through the course, students will add the organs about which they learn to their

own personalized human figure. We will also have experiments and projects, such as testing the

bacteria content around the house, finding their blood type, creating a cell model from Jello & candy,

and even building a stethoscope!

God loves to hear us sing! It’s a way to worship, it opens pathways to learning in the brain in a

way nothing else can and it’s FUN! We will be learning musical notation, practice counting rhythms, and

doing movement activities. Additionally, in the process of learning our music, we will be developing our

musical ears (ear training) and learning to sing harmony. The music we sing will be ina variety of styles,

and will be uplifting, worshipful, and God-glorifying. We will also be developing our student’s

presentation skills as we share our music in other worship settings/services. 12 week course.

Textbook: Feed My Sheep, and God and Christian Artists

This course will explore different art mediums, such as charcoal, pencil, paints, clay, wax and

plaster of Paris. The students will explore drawing, color theory, light & value, texture, contrast,

perspective, portrait making, and pottery. 12 week course.

Debate is the practice of comparing ideas, which is a common part of our experiences as human beings.

This will teach the skills needed to argue effectively in life. Whether one desires to be a lawyer, an

engineer, a plumber, a mother, a doctor, or a teacher, these skills will aid the student in many situations

in which he must be able to give an answer for his beliefs, even in the face of another’s arguments.

Whether the situation involves witnessing about the Gospel or applying for a job, the skills developed

by debate are invaluable! 12 weeks course

Textbook: Foundations in Personal Finance (2014)

This course will cover financial principles that empower students to make sound financial decisions for

life. Using lesson plans & DVD presentations of Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance, this

course will cover topics such as : financial responsibility & decision making, income & careers, planning

and money management, credit and debt. We will discuss how to save money, live on a budget,

eliminate debt, find bargains, and experience the joy of giving. There will also be field trips to a bank,

and an investment broker. We will also “invest” in a stocks of our choice and each student will follow

the progress of their own “investment” throughout the course. An “accounting” will then be made at

the end of the class. 12 weeks course

6. Speech and Communications

Effective communication is vital in many aspects of life including home, church, and in the

workplace. In this course, students will increase their ability to organize and present information. In

addition to giving speeches of various lengths and on various topics, students will learn and practice

everyday communication skills including making introductions, sharing her testimony, sharing the

gospel, planning and sharing a devotional, and more. By the end of the course, students will have

delivered 6 speeches, organize a speech for maximum impact, deliver a speech with confidence,

conquer fear of public speaking. 12 weeks course

sports, taking a fieldtrip (possibly several) to swim at the YMCA in Blue Springs under the leadership of a

professional swim coach. There will also be opportunities for ice skating at the Independence Events

Center, and roller skating in Blue Springs. 12 weeks course

and will contribute to the spiritual presence in the worship service. 4 week course

Topics covered will be cooking and home organization. Practical applications in the kitchen will

include: utensils, housewares, meal planning on a budget, making several meals from one central

ingredient, making homemade mixes, and making a meal-in-a-jar. 4 week course

12. I Wonder What That Job Is Like!

We will explore many different career s and opportunities in the job market. Education and skill

requirements will be researched and presented by the students. Income and future market potential

will also be explored. This course will include several guest speakers, and follow-up fieldtrips to

“shadow” various careers in the medical field, financial field, IT, public service, and retail. Some of the

job shadowing must be done on an individual basis, and not as a class. After the “shadow”, the student

must present a detailed report to the class on his/her experience. 12 weeks course

Chapter Sixteen: The Victorious Life

This work, although dealing with the intensely personal relationship that we have with our Savior, applies to the church at large, and now the nation as well. The process described will potentially give you insight into past experiences that were devastating or ones that you will yet face. This process is also the key to working out the latter day salvation in Zion and what our nation must now endure in the upcoming years.

Here are some of the quotes from the book:

"Christ didn't come to die for us so that we would escape death; He came to show us the manner in which we must die to obtain this new life!"

"He alone sees the rooms in our hearts, just like He did with the rich young ruler, that we lock up and then throw away the key. But, you see, the hell that we've locked up in our lives - all those secret places that we seek protection from or that we have glory in (our pride) - He has ownership of those keys. It doesn't matter that we've thrown those keys away. He has the master key!"

"This is the crux of the matter. The natural man is an enemy to God. He has been and he always will be. Enemies desire to crush and destroy each other. Satan wishes to crush God and take His throne. God, in like manner, sent His son into the world to destroy the devil and his works (Helaman 2:13, I John 3:8). As long as the natural man (that Esau-like twin) is in your life, God is pursuing a course to crush him so that Israel, the chosen one, can begin to reign."

"To corner God is one of the natural tendencies we have within us. Yet, every time we desire this, we remove the living portion of God and replace it with the dead portion of ourselves. "

"What a powerful testimony that witness is - to give up all of your life to embrace the life of the living God. Really you, as the king said, aren't giving up your life, but you are giving up your sin, your death, so that you can embrace his life. "

"It will be very tempting to give up and quit. It will seem like the trial is greater than you can bear. All other agony and misery pales in comparison to the intensity of what you’ve been asked to go through this time. Death clings to your breath. Hopelessness hovers over you. Misery is your sustenance and the darkness that falls around you extinguishes all of the normal avenues of light.
This is not by chance, but rather by design. "

"So many make the mistake that if we can just read and study more - if we can just get the correct interpretation of God’s word - then we would save ourselves out of our situation."

"God’s faithfulness is always talked about when we struggle. We do this because we see this large gap in our lives. We see what was promised and don’t see how it can be accomplished. And we get lost in the fact of seeking the reward instead of the person. Too many have died seeking the reward when the object of their faith should have been the person!"

"Joy comes from the giving of oneself in the act of sacrifice."

"Men continue to seek who is the greatest. Christ took up the basin and the towel. Men continue to force their will upon the church under the guise of common consent or following a pattern, but the root of the problem hasn't changed much since the beginning of time. Force always leads to death. Hasn't the church seen enough death in the last 40 years? Hasn't it tired of all the lost sheep? Hasn't it grown weary of split after split, agony after agony? "

"The main function of the Holy Spirit is to bear witness and testimony of the Father and the Son. It has not ceased in its ability to do this. Men have fallen short in expressing the mind and will of God to other men. "

"He gave His life - the very best potential for us. This victory that comes in our lives is the victory over selfishness. Instead of seeking to be right, we seek His righteousness."
