Lauren (my dh) has gone downhill drastically. His blood pressure this too low to be detectable by traditional methods. He is only semi-conscious on occasion, but does know us and speak to us when he is.

The hospice medical personnel did not expect him to live through last night , but he is still hanging in there 24 hours later. His internal organs do appear to be shutting down, so it will not likely be long before he leaves this world. Please pray for comfort and peace for all of us.

I’m excited to report that some friends have gathered to help me with a very special sale and benefit. As you know, Lauren’s medical situation is very serious. He’s home now, under the care of hospice, and we are facing major expenses on many fronts. Our friends have gathered to help us, and in benefiting us, they will also benefit you.

For the Special Sale, I’m offering my new phonics curriculum with a bunch of special bonuses from friends. That makes your purchase a really wonderful bargain for you– you receive over $75 $133 worth of curriculum and instruction (they just keep adding things!) for just the normal price of All the Letters, All Year Long!

Also, I’ve just posted two wonderful reviews!

You can click on the links above to read both of them.

If all that wasn’t enough, we’re also offering a special sale on Blessed is the Man. It’s time to stock up!

We appreciate your prayers and support, and hope that you’ll be blessed by our special sale and benefit. Remember- the amazing bonuses for the sale of the phonics curriculum last for only one week (October 15-22), so you need to act quickly!

From Lynda’s personal blog:

“Our roller coaster ride may not be over yet, but for now, the Lord has eased us to a safe landing at home. Lauren seems to be feeling better. He is breathing more easily more consistently, and his vitals seem to be good. He sleeps a lot but it is a peaceful sleep not like it often was in the hospital. He wears out easily but enjoys having company. His best times are about 7 -10 AM and 6-8 PM. If you would like to call or come see him, try to schedule it during those times.

… We have also received lots of cards, drawings and photos. Instead of putting them on the wall, he has decided to use a scrapbook so he can hold it in his hands and look through his memories. He would like pictures included with cards (or digitals sent separately) so he can match names to faces. We would like to thank all of you for flowers, cards, gifts, financial assistance, food, and all other kindnesses shown to us during this illness.”

If you would like to send a card, it would be very much enjoyed. The address is 24 N. Florida Street, Montgomery, AL 36107.

These just in! New Reviews by Tami Fox of Discount Homeschool Supply (DHSS)!
With My Very Life by Lynda and Becky Coats
Reviewed by Tami Fox
This novel is a fictional story set during the time of the Pony Express. As I began this book, I was captivated by the story line with the first few pages. It was very neat to have the author’s perspective of life on a pony express station during its brief, and very important, existence. The story brought to life several characters that are well-known in our country’s history of the Wild West. They have also woven the Gospel into the storyline, and they portray the spiritual struggles of those living in dangerous times. If you enjoy a good, historical fiction book, you will love this book. And it will leave you wanting to read more. It’s a good thing Lynda and Becky have provided us with three books in this series.
Life and Death Matter by Lynda and Becky Coats
Reviewed by Tami Fox
In this second installation in the Pony Express series, Lynda and Becky have woven together more stories based on the lives of those living on a Pony Express station. I was immediately brought up to speed in the first chapter on the happenings in the lives of the people they wrote about in the first novel, and I was ready to read more. I also enjoyed reading how the faith of these people grew, and how it affected those around them who were not Christians. It showed how God always has a plan and purpose for the things that happen in life, and how He can use trials and tribulations for His glory and purpose. As I finished this book, I was ready to read the third installation in this series.

Love of a Lifetime by Lynda and Becky Coats
Reviewed by Tami Fox
In this third and final installation of the Pony Express series, I started the book thinking I knew what was going to happen. Well, the authors had a different idea, and I enjoyed this story as much as the first two stories in this series. I was able to envision these characters from Lynda and Becky’s story, and of course, I was rooting for it to end like I thought it should end. And since I don’t want to give any of the storyline away, I will have to leave it to you to find out what happened in this book. I do not find myself with a lot of time to read for pleasure, and I am so glad I had the opportunity to read these books.

The trilogy is now available for purchase! CLICK HERE to get your copy today.
