From Creation to Cross

bible01 375x215I have a pretty neat job. I am the Peer-less Reviewer, or General Editor, for an online homeschool resource center. That means I review hundreds of lessons in every subject at every grade level. I get paid to do two of my favorite things: learn, and correct others’ mistakes.

At work, I get to watch videos and read descriptions of the stars that were unimaginable decades ago.

Senior Volunteers “Paying it Forward”

Fidget quilt resized 325x215What happens when a dozen ladies and gentlemen get together to “Sit N Sew?” About five dozen Fidget Quilts, two large trash bags of neck rolls and two plastic sleeping bag mats – that’s what!! Participants at the Easton Area Lifestyle Campus (EALC) in Forks Township, part of the Northampton County Area Agency on Aging’s network of Senior Centers, have been hand-crafting items for their community members since November 2015.  It all started with an idea from Deb Mertz, Director of EALC.  “I wanted to find a fun and meaningful activity for the participants and came across a pattern for Fidget Quilts and it just grew from there”, said Deb.

Your energy, desire or ability may be diminishing for certain household tasks that you once enjoyed (or at least tolerated) in your youth. Whether these changes are apparent or subtle, many adults face a time where they need to bring help to them or move in with the help.
