Giving Your Children the Gift of Music

Dear Lissy,

Today I am posting a letter for you from my friend, Mrs. Rachel S.  She has educated her four children at home for many years.  I greatly admire her dedication to excellence in both academics and the arts.  Her two oldest children have placed at the state level numerous times in piano performance.  I asked her to share her heart for music education as well as her methods.  Enjoy!

“The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.”

Awesome Possum

Dear Lissy,
It's been triple-H weather here for the last few days, and I've been enjoying the gas grill God provided for our family this spring.  Awesome Possum is one of our all-time favorite summer grill recipes. The combination of orange & lime juice along with the spices gives the chicken a light Mexican flavor that works as well in fajitas as it does on a salad.  The chicken is also tasty rolled up in a naan or other warm flatbread with a little tzatziki sauce.
