Mid-October of last year the secretary at my home church had to resign to take care of her very ill husband. And guess who the assistant secretary is that was called to fill in? Yep, that’s right, me. If all had of went as planned I was to undergo a couple of weeks of training before the “real” secretary resigned. Unfortunately, because of her husband’s rapid decline in health those two weeks was reduced to a one-day training period.
My knowledge of how the former secretary did…Continue

Give yourself some credit. Credit for the things you do well. Yes, I’m talking to you- don’t look behind you. We all have things we’re good at. But how often do we say something like “oh that, it’s no big deal, anybody can do that, and then we go on to say how wonderfully talented somebody else is. We seem to…Continue

As I drove down the road, the puzzled feeling remained. I was mentally going over the math. Over and over again. Always the same answer. I knew I would have to go back. I didn’t want to. We were finally on our way home. I was tired. The children were tired. You know what happens to tired children. I don’t really have to explain that here do I? But I knew them well. Hadn’t I been their closest companion since birth. They would realize that this…

Research papers are very common ways of challenging students to work on their ability to present, develop an argument, compare and give out detailed analysis including their own un-biased opinion. In tough courses and top educational institutions of the world, research papers are often a strong case in making up overall grades of the students so they have to work really hard on them. Scientific research papers, if we talk about, are even more difficult. Their requirements are tough, they…Continue
