One of my favorite (and relatively unknown) magazines is called Plain Values. If you want to fill your mind with all that is good, give them a try. Beautiful article written by singer songwriter Rory Feek.

I wrote this a few years back, but thought I’d share it again! Happy Sunday! Be blessed! stacymcdonaldhttp://stacymcdonald.com.com
I’m a big fan of Melissa Gilbert… I think we’re close to the same age. I cut my “reading teeth” on the Little House on the Prairie books and Melissa Gilbert brought them to life. We rarely watched TV when I was growing up, but this was one show we did watch regularly! Good, clean wholesome entertainment that the whole family can partake in….. I have seen this movie promoted recently. It looks like a good one!
Who is up for a good night at the movies?
A little of this and a little of that from my recent readings (if you are looking for a good book to wrap up your summer with!) 📚
📚Voices of Qi (pronounced chi): I’ve been studying alternative healing modalities for several years now ( Dolphin Mps , nutrition, herbals, exercise, and faith centered yoga). If your health is strictly hinged upon Big Pharma, please…. let’s chat. Big Pharma alone is like having a circle of frenemies instead of friends.
📚The Paris Architect: A beautiful historical fiction about a rather narcissistic French architect who, during WWII, finds himself by using his gifts to help Jews escape the Nazi’s.
📚The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek: Another historical fiction work…. it weaves the story of the blue-skinned people of Kentucky (a genetic trait…. methemoglobinemia that turns skin bluish tinged), and Roosevelt’s Kentucky Pack Horse Library Project of the 1930’s. It is tender and heartbreaking all at the same time. I knew nothing about either one of these pieces of history, so I learned quite a bit (and used the book a a springboard for learning even more about both topics!). The blue people of Kentucky were often ostracized by whites and blacks alike, so the emotional toll of “being different” was enormous.
📚America’s Christian Heritage: Pure history in this one! The Supreme Court has ruled four times that America is a Christian nation ( none of which have been ever overturned). Our money, our court system, and our founding education systems all included theological studies as part of the core curriculum ( including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Duke, etc)…..
…… it has been said, that if an entity wants to change the course of a country, it first begins in the education system. In recent generations, they have taken out prayer and Bible in the schools…. Proverbs 22:6 “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it ” works both ways.
Christian faith has been purged from schools and our nation is currently paying the price. Every Christian faith based home should have a copy of this book, and every American should have a copy of the Constitution in their possession. Our forefathers established our country to have freedom to choose their religion…. but even the Constitution (which we all live under) has Christian faith based roots😉🇺🇸🙏💖.
