Ann Voskamp says, “I stayed up late for too long and wrote a book, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are. I weep and wonder when I read how God’s changing lives through those humble pages and it’s just proof that God really does use broken, messed up, and fallible lives anyways.… but honestly? the only words that really matter? Are the ones I live. This convicts me. I keep writing it out here on aholyexperience.com everyday, the words I am seeking to live — about this wondrously messy, everyday-holy life…. about finding the beauty and quiet, about slowing to see the sacred in the chaos, the Cross in the clothespin, the flame in the bush…Just listening – laundry, liturgy, life, — holy ground. A holy experience — because all of life flames with God. It’d be pure grace to walk a bit, you and I – to live the words together…

The foundation of the Heart of Wisdom philosophy is to give up man’s standards and lean on God for what He would have us teach our children. Matthew 6:33 is our focus, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Trulymovingpictures.org
Heartland Truly Moving Pictures recognizes and honors filmmakers whose work artistically expresses hope and respect for positive values of life. Heartland is a cultural institution, but it’s also an ideal. The organization was formed around the belief that great films can inspire people to accomplish amazing things. They can increase our understanding of the world around us. They can motivate us to treat one another with compassion and respect.

Donnayoung.org
Donna Young started this web site in 1998. She was teaching her children at home, had bought a new internet capable computer, and decided to put her homeschool and household files online. Aside from a few donated files, Donna makes all the content for donnayoung.org using several programs such as drawing programs and word processors. Most of all, this website is a place on the internet from where you may print homeschool planners, household planners, Calendars, handwriting lessons, printable worksheets or papers for several subjects. DonnaYoung.org has grown over the years and continues to grow. Meanwhile, Donna’s children have graduated from home school and life goes on.
