Mini Vacation & TN Meeting

This month has been crazy busy with hardly a spare moment to write. The first part of this week I was in Tennessee for 3 days of meetings for TOS. While I was gone my dad took the kids to Myrtle Beach for a mini-vacation. They had a wonderful time fishing, swimming and just spending quality time with their grandfather.

In addition to the super productive meetings in Tennessee, we had a wonderful time of fellowship. Because the TOS employees work from home and hail from all over the country including Alaska, it is rare that we ever meet the people we work with on a day to day basis. Despite the difference in our backgrounds and locations, there is an immediate feeling of connection. We all stayed at the Suarez’s home and were tremendously blessed by an outpouring of genuine hospitality and wonderful food. Gena is an outstanding cook, and even though she was not feeling well, she went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. The entire family spoiled us rotten.
After long hours of meetings, we spent even more time getting to know each other and sharing stories of our lives and comparing notes about our children. On the last day as we were wrapping up, we all got a bit of the sillies and went outside to take pictures.

Although it was a working trip, I think we all came home refreshed and revitalized.

    I was happy to discover your blog today. I've developed an educational program for Windows called SpellQuizzer that helps children learn their spelling and vocabulary words without the battle that parents often have getting them to sit down and write them out while the parents dictate to them. The parent enters the child's spelling words into the software making a sound recording of each word. Then the software helps the child practice his or her words. It really helped my children with their weekly spelling lists.

    I would appreciate your reviewing SpellQuizzer in Proverbs 22:6 Academy. If you are interested in hosting a giveaway of a SpellQuizzer license I'd be happy to supply a free license to the winner. You can learn more about the program at There's a video demo you can watch at and a community site where SpellQuizzer users can share their spelling lists with one another ( Finally, there's a page targeted to homeschooling families at I'd be happy to send you a complimentary license for your own use of the software. Please let me know if you are interested.

    Thank you very much!
