Audio Drama – the best Review!

Our review of Heirloom Audio Productions In the Reign of Terror kept all three of us captivated during our long hours of summer travel.

The professional cast, strong soundtrack and effects combined with G.A. Henty’s authorship and Bill Heid’s production team at Heirloom Audio created a riveting story, making 2 1/2 hours of road travel pass in a blink. Continue reading “Audio Drama – the best Review!”

Summer days – some cool, some hot, some rainy, some with fun, and then one with tears. Daily duties and ministry travel have filled our days, and sprinkled in the midst have been some just plain fun family times. Yet, as with the normal ebb and flow of life, one family fun night came to a screeching hault as we pulled through the darkness into our driveway. Our headlights immediately picked up the bright white of Continue reading “Saying “Cheese” to Making a Cross”

Although we all try using little phrases, Daddy is the only one who has reached a conversational level of Spanish.  The Whistlefritz Educator’s Spanish Collection uses exciting, immersive techniques to teach basic Spanish to pre-K or early elementary children.
