BETSY DEVOS: EMPOWERS WOMEN

BETSY DEVOS IS EVERYTHING THE LIBERAL WOMEN SAY THEY WANT IN A WOMAN. She is educated, smart, hard working, independent, positive and a moral person. She is the type of woman they say they want their girls to become. As Pres. Trump said, “She is a brilliant and passionate education advocate.”  Isn’t that what they and all of us want for our children?  So why don’t they like her? She’s rich? She and her family worked hard to get what they have.   She’s never been Sec.  of Education before?  Good, because the Dept. of Education is not doing a good job of education. Our children placed 24th this year compared to other countries and we spend more than any other country. SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH OUR DEPT OF EDUCATION. We need someone new to make changes.

SHE BELIEVES IN SCHOOL CHOICE. Isn’t that what we want for our young women and men in the poor sections of our cities and states? We want them to be able to go to Charter Schools and Private Schools that will help them to be the best they can be. We want the  black and Spanish girls to get out of the bad schools where they spend their lives pregnant and having abortions. We want them to know there is something else. Betsy DeVos can make that happen.

SHE BELIEVES COMMON CORE IS BAD. IT IS BAD FOR OUR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS. She can change that. “She said she, “SUPPORTS HIGH STANDARDS, STRONG ACCOUNTABILITY, AND LOCAL CONTROL. But Common Core became a federalized boondoggle. She believes, ” Every child, no matter their Zip Code or their parents’ jobs, deserves access to a quality education.”  ISN’T THAT WHAT EVERY PARENT AND EVERY LIBERAL AND CONSERVATIVE WOMAN WANTS?

SHE STRONGLY SUPPORTS SCHOOL VOUCHERS. She has been active in playing a major role in expanding the number of school choice programs available to students across the country.

SHE SUPPORTS CHARTER SCHOOLS. She and her husband Dick have been actively involved in promoting charter schools for over two decades. Charter schools are publicly funder and open to all students, but able to operate with more autonomy than traditional public schools.

SHE IS AN OUTSIDER IN WASHINGTON D.C.. Didn’t Pres. Trump promise to “drain the swamp? Isn’t the Dept of Education a great place to start?

SHE SUPPORTS HOME SCHOOLING. Is that what Liberal women have a problem with? Homeschooled children are more disciplined, more respectful, way ahead of their peers in public school and are not brainwashed with liberal propaganda. Is that the problem?

NOW THE DEVOS FAMILY. They are a true American Dream Family. Isn’t that what we want our children to see. It’s what I wanted my children to see.  Betsy’s Father in law, Richard and his partner began their little business with one Biodegradable Cleaning Product in his garage in the 50’s. It became the Amway business which is one of the most successful businesses in the world. Why?  They teach positive, moral, honest business techniques. They help individuals and families build small businesses and sometime huge businesses. They help SINGLE WOMEN AND WOMEN WITH CHILDREN along with families and Single men to build businesses to support their families.

HOW DO I KNOW THIS? Because the DeVos family helped me and some of my children build businesses. None of us built huge businesses, but, my business supplemented my income when I was raising 4 children. It gave me and my children the ability to learn what we could do with a positive attitude. Except for a short period of time, none of my children or grandchildren, men and women, have never been on welfare or food stamps. Why? Because Amway Corp and the DeVos family set examples and TAUGHT US HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL. Which we all are. Amway Corp. along with Richard DeVos, Dick and Betsy Devos and the incredible successful businesses that were began because of the DeVoses have help thousands and thousands of single women, women with children, men, and families become middle class and wealthy.  Betsy is part of that family. ISN’T THAT WHAT WE WANT FOR OUR CHILDREN? WHO BETTER TO TRUST WITH OUR CHILDREN’S EDUCATION.

Some of this information came from an article in Newsmax by Kelsey Harkness. Some of it is my observation and knowledge of the DeVos Family, Betsy DeVos and my personal experience.

I hope this will be food for thought for all those that opposed Betsy DeVos and also, for those who championed her.

DO WE DO WHAT GOD WANTS US TO DO?

Consider John the Baptist: He was a fiery preacher who drew great crowds…and then everything fell apart.

Jesus, whom John had hoped would be the promised Messiah, seemed to be moving in a different direction from what John anticipated. Jesus seemed to be “wasting” his time curing people who were crippled and blind and deaf

John was arrested and thrown into jail. If Jesus was the Messiah, something wasn’t working. The Romans were still in control and there had been no great shift in power.

Then there was John’s death, as senseless as a drive by shooting: Killed for the price of a dance, because of a king who got drunk at a party and made a promise to a teenage girl… killed by some guard who grumbled about having to get up late and go chop off the head of someone he didn’t even know.

This does not appear to be the stuff of greatness. But Jesus said that John was one of the greatest who ever lived.

Where did this greatness come from?

John the Baptist tried to do what was given him to do, and do it for God, and do it with God.

And  when my efforts, insignificant as they may seem to be, are connected with God, I AM INVOLVED IN SOMETHING COLOSSAL, SOMETHING GREAT.

From the LITTLE BLUE  BOOK___________________________________

How do you know what God wants you to do? Ask Him. Here is a prayer I say now, every day. I got it from a book by Scott Hann and his wife, HOME TO ROME. Her father taught her to say this prayer and it works for me:

“Lord, let me be what you want me to be, do what you want me to do and go where you want me to go.” I love you.”

And then pay attention to your day, and what God puts before you.

 

PUT GOD BACK IN OUR SCHOOLS

I have thinking about this for a couple of years and finally may get a chance to do something.

I keep seeing things on face book about putting God back in our schools, but I never see anyone doing anything. I’m not sure how effective I will be but if I just get something started it will be worthwhile. 

Now, the first law passed in DC simply said that teachers could not lead organized prayers nor tell kids when they had to pray. That was why they had a few minutes of silence in the morning which I guess they still do some places.  However, that law did not prohibit talking about God in School, did not prohibit students praying and certainly did not prohibit the Pledge.

I am going to first download the actual first law passed and hopefully post at least the main part.

Then I am going to check in my state, Maine, and see if any other laws were passed.

I am also going to do the same in DC.

I am wondering if there are any other laws regarding God in schools or if the rest is just bull to fit some ones agenda.

Does anyone know of anyone or group that is doing this? If so please let me know so I can get in touch.

We need God back in the schools, Children have the right to pray. They need to know about Christianity. The improvements Christianity has brought to the world. They need to learn again about respect, morals, right and wrong and evil and good. If we want bullying and killings to stop, we need to teach our children self-respect, self control and consequences. 

Think about this. 95% of Catholic School children go to college. These schools require teaching in these areas.

It really seems as if there are people in this country that hate our kids. Our kids are unhappy and have no hope, we Christians know the way, we need to do something.
