Never Say, Never

I mentioned in the last article that I was reading some of the books from the Christian Heroes: Then & Now series by Janet & Geoff Benge. I just started the story of Ida Scudder. I had never heard of her; but one phrase she used when friends suggested she would continue in her family’s mission work to India was, ” . . . .never; ever; ever . . . ”

When I read that, I immediately related to this woman who lived from 1870-1960. I have used that phrase consciously as well as subconsciously; sometimes verbalizing it or silently wishing it.

You see, these words aptly describe my story concerning The Curriculum Exchange.

I am asked often how I became the owner of The Curriculum Exchange. I have to smile when I am asked that question. Because, it wasn’t I who chose the Curriculum Exchange; God did! Continue reading

As I was encouraging a friend, the next word I texted after sympathizing with her frustration was the word, “but”. My exact words were “. . . . .but, and you know there is a but . . . ” You see, all the challenges in life can force us to become overwhelmed, frustrated, discouraged, angry, bitter, etc. Unless we encourage each other that there is a “but”, we will keep focused on the challenge or as many of us call problems.

Never too late to enjoy reading

Many of you may think that I grew up an avid reader. Well, it will probably shock you when I share that I was not. I was of the TV generation: Brady Bunch, Gilligan’s Island, I Love Lucy, Bonanza, etc. I loved to play dolls while watching my weekly TV shows. I read to fulfill my school assignments; but I never learned to develop the joy of just reading until I became the owner of the Curriculum Exchange.

One thing I have learned while owning the store is that it is never too late to develop a joy for reading. As people have brought in their books to consign over the years, many titles have caught my attention. So, I “check them out” and read them: classics, inspirational, historical fiction/nonfiction.
