A Collaborative Website


My grandfather “collaborating” with his friends in the Qu’Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan.

Collaborate:

“Collaboration/collaborate “ results from a plan of two or more people, in the same field, working together for a specific purpose.  For instance, two famous composers may collaborate to write a soundtrack for a movie.  They will work under the same understanding, with similar experience, skill sets and philosophies.  Mutual respect is key.  And timelines and deadlines play their usual roles.  Or, a group of students may be assigned a project and will proceed to collaborate.

A Collaborative Website:

When describing such a website, there can be many collaborators, as long as what is contributed to the whole is in line with the purpose of the website.

All right!  This has been a preamble to the fact that I am putting this website together for you.  Why?  Truly, the conaravirus and you are the forces moving me in this direction.  Parenting and education have long been of the utmost importance to me.

And now, with school beginning again, my heart goes out to all teachers, children, students, parents, grandparents – everyone!  Remember how we didn’t think the pandemic would last this long?!  And now we wonder if it will ever end.

I’d love to have you participate in this venture.  I’m open to suggestions; but for now I’ll be working on sections this way:


Grades 3 – 6; Grades 7- 12; Univerity/College students; Out Working; Parents; Teachers; and a section just called Stressful, where you can join privately to discuss with me


That’s it for now.  Please pass this newsletter on to all your friends, to schools, to churches, to anyone you can think of.

Thank you – and I look forward to seeing your comments in the comment boxes.

what’s in a name?

Hopefully, within your name is most of what and who you are.  We probably all went through spells of disliking our name and thinking of what we’d rather have people call us.  And then we come to an acceptance of it.  And finally we embrace our name.  After all, it may have been the strongest and earliest element of bonding our parents maintained with us.  It’s such an important thing – pre-natal bonding. 

My Dad named me.  What’s the story of your name?  Do you get your identity from it?  Who are you?  A strongly embraced YOU is the most important suit of armour you could possibly have – and it starts with you head (your mind) and then your heart.  And it’s covered and shielded by your soul.  You have a race to run. 
Called Life.

The Call to Happy Perseverance (Hebrews 12:1-2)   1. Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off every encumbrance that so easily entangles, and let us run with endurance the race sets out for us. 2. Let us fix our eyes on the author and perfecter of our faith
