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.

Victoria Maizes MD- Preparing for Pregnancy With excitement, joy, and perhaps a bit of trepidation, you’re considering having a baby. This primal urge is an intrinsic part of being human. What could be more natural or straightforward? Every day, women become pregnant, sometimes unintentionally. On the other hand, many women have difficulty conceiving, which can be emotionally traumatic, exhausting, or frustrating. My opinion is that pregnancy is well worth preparing for.
Victoria Maizes MD- Menopause The “change of life” also provides an opportunity to reconsider and discuss your overall health with a focus on prevention. The goals of an integrative medicine consult for menopausal complaints are to provide relief from symptoms as well as to discuss overall health and satisfaction with life.
Victoria Maizes MD- Practicing Gratitude One simple way to feel happier (and healthier) is to begin a gratitude practice. I like to practice gratitude before I go to bed at night. Turning over the events of the day in my mind, I acknowledge three people or events or things that I am grateful.
Victoria Maizes MD- Choosing Supplements The Center for Disease Control (CDC) data shows that 75 percent of the U.S. population is not meeting the daily requirement for folate; 34 percent do not get enough iron; 42 percent don’t get enough zinc; and 73 percent are deficient in calcium.
Victoria Maizes MD- Conventional Medicine As an integrative physician, I regularly use the many advances available in conventional medicine. I am deeply appreciative of all that it has to offer to promote good health before conception, to assess fertility problems, and to treat infertility when necessary.
