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.

Word of the Day

shall

SHALL,

1. Shall is primarily in the present, and in our mother tongue was followed by a verb in the infinitive, like other verbs. "Ic sceal fram the beon gefullod." I have need to be baptized of thee. "Ic nu sceal singan sar-cwidas." I must now sing mornful songs.

We still use shall and should before another verb in the infinitive, without the sign to; but significance of shall is considerably deflected from its primitive sense. It is now treated as a mere auxiliary to other verbs, serving to form some of the tenses. In the present tense, shall, before a verb in the infinitive, forms the future tense; but its force and effect are different with different persons or personal pronouns. Thus in the first person, shall simply foretells or declares what will take place; as, I or we shall ride to town on Monday. This declaration simply informs another of a fact that is to take place. The sense of shall here is changed from an expression of need or duty, to that of previous statement or information, grounded on intention or resolution. When uttered with emphasis, "I shall go," it expresses firm determination, but not a promise.

2. In the second and third persons, shall implies a promise, command or determination. "You shall receive your wages," "he shall receive his wages," imply that you or he ought to receive them; but usage gives these phrases the force of a promise in the person uttering them.

When shall is uttered with emphasis in such phrases, it expresses determination in the speaker, and implies an authority to enforce the act. "Do you refuse to go? Does he refuse to go? But you or he shall go."

3. Shall I go, shall he go, interrogatively, asks, for permission or direction. But shall you go, asks for information of another's intention.

4. But after another verb, shall, in the third person, simply foretells. He says that he shall leave town to-morrow. So also in the second person; you say that you shall ride to-morrow.

5. After if, and some verbs which expresscondition or supposition, shall, in all the persons, simply foretells; as,

If I shall say, or we shall say,

Thou shalt say, ye or you shall say,

Random Word

yarn

YARN, n.

1. Spun wool; woolen thread; but it is applied also to other species of thread, as to cotton and linen.

2. In rope-making, one of the threads of which a rope is composed. It is spun from hemp.

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- 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- Male Factors for Fertility Fertility is a team effort, meaning the health of your partner is just as important as yours. Male sperm counts have been declining for decades. 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- 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- 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.
