Volume 12, Issue 10

I am the door;
if anyone enters through Me,
he will be saved,
and will go in and out and find pasture.

John 10:9 (NASB)

Sometimes the wind is really strong and tries to blow me down.
It kicks up all the dirt and dust and blows it all around.
But up ahead I see a place where I can run and hide.
It’s in the shelter of my God; I’m running to His side.

When the storm is blowing up and rain begins to come,
I know that if I venture out I’ll fast be lost, alone.
But if I stay beside my King, I know He’ll keep me dry.
And someday, I am confident, the clouds will roll on by.

His wings are strong and yet so soft; they reach out far and wide.
And when the storm is passed He lets me take a glorious ride.
We soar above the mountaintops and glide across the sea.
The deserts hold no fear because my God is here with me.

We are still working hard on this new one-year civics course for grades 5-8. Lord willing Uncle Sam and You will be ready in time for your family to use it this fall. Get ready for a fresh approach to American government as you gain a comprehensive understanding of civics from what a firefighter does all day to how a president gets elected. Explore landmarks from county court houses to state capitols to the White House. We are pulling together original sources and some amazing stories about people who serve their fellow Americans. Get ready to look at government in a way you never have before!

The current edition of America the Beautiful is sold out, and we are having new editions of Part 1, Part 2, and We the People printed in hardcover. The text has stayed the same, but we have added more color illustrations. We are excited about this hardcover edition, and we hope you are, too! Like all Notgrass curriculum, it is being printed in the USA. We are expecting to have it available for shipping between the middle of June and the beginning of July (just as soon as our printer can get it to us!). The price will remain the same ($99.95 for the Curriculum Package). Send us an e-mail at to let us know you are interested in purchasing one of these new packages and we will give you a coupon for free shipping.

We’d love to send you some free Notgrass Company catalogs to hand out to your friends, co-op, or support group. Just let us know how many you need!
