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- Facing the End of Life While not an easy thing to write it can be a healing exercise. We look inward to discover the essential truths we have learned over a lifetime, face up to our failures, and consider which things really count.
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- Facing Cancer In integrative medicine, we usually recommend conventional treatment of the cancer and use the tools of nutrition, mind-body, and alternative systems to help support a person’s over all well-being and reduce treatment side effects.
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- Your Belief System No two people are exactly alike. How do you prefer to be treated? On a scale that goes from natural and minimally invasive – to very aggressive treatment, where do you place yourself? What are your beliefs about what precipitated an illness? What does your intuition tell you to do to enhance healing? There are situations in medicine where everyone agrees that there is one best approach. More often, in medicine, there are shades of gray where a patient’s beliefs and preferences become incredibly important when making treatment decisions.
