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- Fertility Self- Assesment Test Often I am asked, “Is there an ideal age to have a baby?” Biologically, the answer is clear. Peak fertility occurs in a woman’s midtwenties. For most of us, however, other factors weigh in. There are social considerations...

While the exact cause is unknown, it is likely to be multifactorial, including environmental exposures to pesticides, exogenous estrogens (estrogens from animals or estrogen mimics in pesticides, plastics etc.), and heavy metals.
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.
