In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed... No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.

About 1828

First dictionary of the American Language!

Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian education, wrote the first American dictionary and established a system of rules to govern spelling, grammar, and reading. This master linguist understood the power of words, their definitions, and the need for precise word usage in communication to maintain independence. Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions.

This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies.

No other dictionary compares with the Webster's 1828 dictionary. The English language has changed again and again and in many instances has become corrupt. The American Dictionary of the English Language is based upon God's written word, for Noah Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions. This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies. From American History to literature, from science to the Word of God, this dictionary is a necessity. For homeschoolers as well as avid Bible students it is easy, fast, and sophisticated.

Cooking with Marta. Paella Barcelona style. Today was a cooking class with Marta, on her balcony in the beautiful sunshine. We rode there on our bikes only 10 mins from home.
DINE WITH THE LOCALS: A CULINARY WORKSHOP IN PAELLA WITH MARTA Marta, a petite Barcelona native fluent in three languages, welcomes any and all into her home for the joyous culinary experience of paella. The Spanish dish often frightens many due to its overwhelming nature of ingredients, but Marta brings such an ease and patience to the dish. Guests have the option to help in the cooking process or just sit back and enjoy, but trust me, it is quite worth it to see how the dish comes together. While the food is fresh and bright, and Marta is delightful and vibrant, it is the experience as a whole that is unforgettable.
Bilingual Paella Cooking Class! (My favorite dish is without doubt PAELLA) It was created by grabbing whatever bits of meat, veg and fish people had available to them and using rice to bring it all together. Over time it's been refined and claimed by all sorts of people around Spain as their own. The great thing about paella is that you can make it your own by taking the principle of it and adjusting it using your favorite ingredients in season and around you. This dish is not difficult to make, despite what you have heard or read. Join the class. It is a fantastic way to socialize, to learn a great recipe that will impress your friends, and most of all, have fun. The class will be in English and Spanish. What a great way to learn and practice a language!!!!
