2021 Pastoral Planner

I know, I know. I’ve already mentioned the 2021 Pastoral Planner. But I was asked about it so I’m posting the link once more. In other news, I got burned by some computer troubles and, if I could, I think I’d break up with technology. 😉 I just need a little space from it right now! Ha haaa

Anyway, here’s a link to the 2021 pastoral planner I put together for my husband (and a link to my original post about it this year). It’s $13 for 366 coil-bound pages and it takes a while to receive your order right now. <Shrug> 2020. 

Here’s a link to the CPH equivalent in case you just prefer to stick with what you know. 🙂 It’s on sale for $15.28 for a bit slimmer book. It’s estimated release date is 10/13/20.

Both are organized well. <Shrug> Organization can just be an area of personal preference.

Speaking of, I’ll be doing another organizational post, helpful to pastors and laity alike, mid-October. 🙂 It may be more my style of on-the-go organization. One with infinite possibilities! 

Literally. Infinite is the point. 🙂 Yay for creative solutions!!

Take care!

Catching Up

My friends. I’ve fallen behind. On life. Possibly sanity. 🙂 I went to reread Lutheran author Garen Pay’s Immanuel: Battles of Armor and Soul(His EccleZia, which I’ve read much more recently, made me want to see whether there were writing similarities.) Anyway, long story short, I couldn’t see my 2017 review on Amazon! Because I forgot to post it!

Lars Lee

Maybe in another ten years, when my kids are older, I can find enough people to have a geeky Lutheran book club to read through old, semi-forgotten Lutheran novels. Such a one may be Lars Lee.

My 2020 Lutheran Homeschool Plan

As you know, I’ve helped to start LutheranHomeschool.com. This year being as it is, I’ve had a number of people ask how to find a Lutheran box curriculum. In other words, what can give them, out of a box, every single thing they need to homeschool. Mostly I’ve pointed elementary folks to Wittenberg Academy, which offers free curriculum for Kindergarten through sixth grade, which I understand is primarily public domain, aka, truly free. Still I thought I’d also share my 2020 Lutheran homeschool plan for the year here so that, if you know someone feeling clueless about Lutheran homeschooling, 🙂 they can look here and feel a bit better. I do so here since Lutheran Homeschool doesn’t really have a place for personal sharing.

The Odyssey

This is too cool. I have to share it even though it isn’t Lutheran or writing-craft related. 🙂 Can simply awesome literary stuff count? Because Oklahoma Contemporary will livestream a six-day reading series of Emily Wilson’s recent translation of Homer’s The Odyssey!
