Music always makes work more fun!

Music always makes work more fun!

One of the things our employees love about working in the warehouse is the fact that they get to listen to music while they work. Since each of our employees gets a turn to play their own playlist, we get to hear all sorts of different artists! Here’s some of their current favorites:

  • George Strait (Country)
  • Kenny Chesney (Country)
  • Kingdom Heirs (Southern Gospel)
  • Hans Zimmer (Film Soundtrack)
  • David Crowder*Band (Christian Contemporary)
  • TobyMac (Christian Contemporary)
  • Newsboys (Christian Contemporary)

We’re always on the lookout for new music! So…what are some of YOUR favorite artists? 😀

You can be flexible with HOD!

Did you know that you do not need to complete a guide by the end of your school year? Many families move from one guide to the next seamlessly mid-year. For example, our youngest son, Beau began this school year in Creation to Christ and is now in the next guide, Resurrection to Reformation. The steady and methodical progression of skills is the most important factor, not completion of the guide.

Have a great weekend!

Backorders are starting to arrive!

Backorders are starting to arrive!

During our Flash Sale earlier this month, we were blessed with far more orders than expected. (Woo hoo!) Even though we stocked up our warehouse in preparation for the sale, eventually many of our items ran out of stock.

If your order included backordered items, we have good news for you: many of our backorders just came in! 😀 Once we have them all processed and stocked, we’ll begin to ship them out to you.

(Below: One of the daily deliveries we’ve been receiving over the past few days. To be honest, we don’t think we’ve ever seen a UPS truck so full before!)

 

The Math of Writing a HOD Guide

The Math of Writing a HOD Guide

Did you know that it took Carrie about 5 months (Sept – Jan) each year to pick the resources that are included in each guide she wrote? Once the resources are picked, the writing process could then begin! The writing of the guides themselves took approximately 1,000 hours.

Have a good weekend!
