I’m Never Alone

September 2nd, 2017

A couple of my friends are preparing to move soon, and I don’t envy them. Moving is never easy. It takes work to sort, to get rid of, to pack, to transport, to unpack, and to put in place—and then to remember where you put everything!

The Source of My Power

August 12th, 2017

Mmmm . . . The blueberry muffin I brought home from the store looked and smelled delicious as I placed it in my tin to keep it fresh until morning. I was tempted to eat it right then, but I didn’t. It was my special treat for breakfast—and I could hardly wait!

A Dedicated Life

July 29th, 2017

Raised in a loving Christian home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Eliza was taught the Word of God all through her youth. At age 18, having lived through the Civil War era, and completing high school as valedictorian of her class, Eliza became a dedicated teacher, not only in the public schools, but in her church as well.

At age 33, her days of school teaching ended suddenly when an unruly student stuck her with his slate injuring her back so severely that she spent six months bedridden in a heavy body cast. Years of recovery and limited activity followed.

One of the most popular and effective methods of teaching children is through the use of songs and choruses. E. E. Hewitt (1851-1920) knew this well—so well, in fact, that she spent much of her life writing lyrics, and often composing music for children’s ministries.
