This month we have a new Bible study book for you to print and use, and we have added the biography of an inspiring man who lived in Bristol, England in the 1800's.

Amy Oberg has used the Garden of Praise Bible stories to make a study course REAL Bible Study for her daughter. We are making it available for our visitors to print their own books if they wish. Many are going to use them for a summer study for their children.

George Müller of Bristol, England was converted from a life of sin and crime to become a servant of God who changed the world for thousands. He was touched by the plight of the street children who had no one to care for them. Over the years he built many orphanages and cared for 10,000 orphans. You'll be inspired by his story.


Linda Lawrence who wrote the Bible lessons for women and young adults is adding some in-depth study for some Bible verses to accompany the lessons. This month she presenting a study of Philippians 2:5 which can be found at the end of the lesson about the Mind of Christ.

And lastly, we have a link to a Belorussian translation of the Alexander the Great biography.

A Personal Note:

Alzheimer's is such a cruel disease. Murray and I used to talk a lot and laugh together, and now he has trouble even expressing his thoughts. Sometimes his words are just gibberish and I have to guess at what he is trying to say. He is becoming less mobile. We had the carpet pulled up in his bedroom and replaced with laminate flooring. Wheelchairs just don't roll very well on thick carpet. We also removed the dresser from the room which gives more room to navigate. I took him to the doctor last week and he says it's time to put him in a nursing home, but I'm just not ready yet......
