Read aloud for AmblesideOnline year 2. Definitely laughed more with this book than any other we have read. And in the midst of the hilarious adventures of Toad were some really moving chapters as well.

Read aloud for AmblesideOnline year 2. I loved the first chapter, then it seemed a little slow and I struggled with all the names and French pronunciations. But then it was very enjoyable once I had a grasp of the characters, and I'm looking forward ...more

“Drink your wine. Laugh from your gut. Burden your moments with thankfulness. Be as empty as you can be when that clock winds down. Spend your life. And if time is a river, may you leave a wake.”
N.D. Wilson, Death by Living: Life Is Meant to Be Spent

Jerry Seinfeld
“What is this obsession people have with books? They put them in their houses like they're trophies. What do you need it for after you read it?”
Jerry Seinfeld

Alexander Schmemann
“Centuries of secularism have failed to transform eating into something strictly utilitarian. Food is still treated with reverence...To eat is still something more than to maintain bodily functions. People may not understand what that 'something more' is, but they nonetheless desire to celebrate it. They are still hungry and thirsty for sacramental life.”
Alexander Schmemann, For the Life of the World: Sacraments and Orthodoxy

C.S. Lewis
“I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is its appointed consummation. It is not out of compliment that lovers keep on telling one another how beautiful they are; the delight is incomplete till it is expressed. It is frustrating to have discovered a new author and not to be able to tell anyone how good he is; to come suddenly, at the turn of the road, upon some mountain valley of unexpected grandeur and then to have to keep silent because the people with you care for it no more than for a tin can in the ditch; to hear a good joke and find no one to share it with. . . . The Scotch catechism says that man’s chief end is ‘to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.’ But we shall then know that these are the same thing. Fully to enjoy is to glorify. In commanding us to glorify Him, God is inviting us to enjoy Him.”
C.S. Lewis, Reflections on the Psalms

Alexander Schmemann
“For one who thinks food in itself is the source of life, eating is the communion with the dying world, it is communion with death. Food itself is dead, it is life that has died and it must be kept in refrigerators like a corpse.”
Alexander Schmemann, For the Life of the World: Sacraments and Orthodoxy
