The PC Reloading course begins June 4th, and itâ€™s a perfect one for families to take together. Learning how to reload your computer and have a â€œlike-newâ€ machine is a blessing. It is a skill that everyone with a computer can utilize that will save them headaches and finances in the future. Check out the website for full course descriptions.
Did you know with our ITonRamp courses, you can have one person in your family signed up, but everyone in the family can benefit by watching the webinar and studying the materials? The paying student will be the only one interacting with the ITonRamp mentor, turning in answers, and taking tests, but the rest can learn so much! The two most practical courses for families to benefit from are PC Reloading and Computer Essentials. Also, if the webinar happens to fall at an inconvenient time for you, no problem. You can watch the recorded webinar anytime throughout the week.
Sarah PS – We have some family posts to catch you up on over the next week. 😉
“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time…” Ecclesiastes 3:11
Summer often affords young people extra time, and what better investment than learning a valuable skill set? The next A+ course is right around the corner, beginning June 4th. This is a great course for young people or a dad who is looking at beginning in the IT field. The course fee includes test vouchers to become A+ certified if you pass.
After graduating from high-school, I figured I would be taking a break from studies for a little while, but to my surprise the Lord led me to take ITonRampâ€™s A+ Course. I would never have classified myself as a â€œcomputer personâ€, but I found the A+ Course was the perfect course to build my knowledge in this area. Nathan was a great instructor, and I especially enjoyed the weekly webinars because I always finished watching them with a fresh understanding of all that I had learned.
I had no idea all the blessings that would come from knowing more about computers. Now I help with Dad and Momâ€™s computer problems. I also fix my Grandmaâ€™s computer. Those used to be tasks only my brothers could tackle.
The other day we were parked at an RV park. Mary and I were sitting outside at a picnic table working on our computers. A very nice lady from the RV next to us came over and asked if I could try to fix her computer. I easily solved her problem, and it led to a delightful conversation.
I have seen how practical my A+ knowledge has been in daily life. I personally, have greatly benefitted from what Iâ€™ve learned and am very happy that I took the course!Â I think it is a course that every high schooler and older should take. Computers have become a part of daily life. Knowledge of them and how to fix them makes life more productive.
â€œI’m so grateful for you and ITonRamp–it’s been so wonderful. You have worked hard to make us feel a part. For a student to be sad that a course is coming to an end tells you a lot! In some respects, I wish it could go on forever!â€ Matthew
â€œI wanted to take a minute and thank you for your hard work in teaching the computer class that our son took. Thank you for your patience in working with him, for your e-mails and phone calls. They were the highlight of his week, and he thought your online classes were really helpful. I doubt anyone spent as much time reading and studying it as he did!Â Thank you again, and may God bless your job/ministry.â€ A mom
“Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.” Proverbs 9:9
We’d love to have you attend. Here’s a note from a family who came to Steinbach.
“Thank you all for coming to Canada and for your obedience to the Lord in all you do!!Â Our whole family was truly blessed by yours!! My husband had started leading a time in the Word (much to my delight), and the kids are looking for ways to bless each other. They are also speeding through the Moody books and sharing the stories with me as they go. Our 10 hour drive was well worth it!! Thank you, thank you, and God bless your family abundantly!!”Â
“Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord of one mind.“ Philippians 2:2
Friday afternoon, after a smooth load-in at the Expo, we drove over to the church where the evening’s sessions were held. Uriah is such a blessing. He is home-sweet-home in whatever place we park. We are grateful for the Lordâ€™s provision.
That evening, my parents gave two sessions: Be Inspired! and Keeping Our Childrenâ€™s Hearts. It was a blessing to talk to those who came and learn more about their families. We drove back to our RV park, and Anna made us delicious fruit smoothies.
The next morning, we awoke, refreshed and ready for the dayâ€™s activities. Beginning at 10, and ending at almost 4, Dad or Mom were always giving a session. We had plenty of opportunities to talk with those who came by our book tables, and the booth stayed busy. Working together as a team is a favorite activity of ours, and the Expo was no exception. What a joy!
Homeschool parents invest so much in their childrenâ€™s lives. Some have an easier road, while others have to persevere through health challenges, a child with special needs, or many young children.
Parents shared how much they were blessed by my parentsâ€™ sessions throughout the day. It was a message that spoke to their hearts.
Joyfully His, Sarah
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 54:17
We have settled back in for two weeks at home. More on that part later. A weekend report will be coming in the next day or two.
Meanwhile, I’ll leave you with a few miscellaneous pictures. Please join us in praying for those affected by the tornados. I am amazed at how quickly life can change. It could be us tomorrow: waking up with everything fine, and by mid-afternoon, everything is gone. May we take each day/hour/minute and live it how the Lord Jesus wants us to.
“Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.” Psalms 107:19
After an incredibly fast-paced, record-breaking, 34-minute pack up last night, we were on the bus and ready to drive. Mom and Anna put a quick dinner together of chili cheese dip (see Moody Book #1 for the recipe), which was a delicious treat.
Mile after mile ticked away as we drove. Dad and John switched places about 11 pm, and at 2 am, we stopped because of a line of thunderstorms ahead. For some in the family, sleep comes easily in the bus while it’s moving, but others simply doze. When the bus stopped moving, though, everyone did sleep. At 6:45, we began the rest of the drive and pulled into our driveway about 8:20. We quickly prepared for church. What a delight it was to make it back in time for worship.
We had a special lunch with the family (thanks Anna Marie and Christopher!), and afterward most took naps.
I look forward to sharing with you about the Expo and how the Lord blessed. It was truly exciting!
Rejoicing in Jesus, Sarah
