This month on the Adventures in Odyssey, Renee Carter is desperate to improve her chemistry grade and so she lets Horus help her prepare for the final exam. But the “chemistry” between them may be problematic. Hear from Adam, the voice behind Horus, and from Bob Smithouser, writer of the episode.
Did not know that Jesse was old enough to be a grandfather!
here are some verses that i think especially important with everything thing that going on in the world right now.
Isaiah 40:8 The grass may wither and the flowers may fade but the Word Of OUR LORD STANDS FOREVER.
Psalm 121:6-7 The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. HE WILL WATCH OVER YOUR LIFE.
@Agentx10 and Agentx14, is this new agency? Thanks!
what is the agency?
Thanks for working this out AgentX10. Did you get the schedule before the comments all got deleted?
@Agentx14. We’re are you?
@ Texas Cowboy. Thanks for the encouraging verses, keep it up.
@ Ed. I did not know that!
Bible Verse of the Day
The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandments of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. – Psalm 19:8
what is the agency?
The agency is just a fun way to learn more about God. There are occasionally missions for projects you can do at home or trivia games. There are always bible verses and good discussion about numerous things and we try to get a lesson (a short devotional) out weekly, though it doesn’t always happen. If you’d like to get more involved, let us know!
Can I join?
Can I join?
Hey everyone! Glad to see that the Agency will exist!
@ Agentx14. No I didn’t
Yay, at least one podcast still comment-able. 🙂
Aq: I think all the podcasts are comment-able… just the old comments probably got deleted when they re-vamped the site. (By the way, this is Whit Fan #1, I just changed my name.)
Hey there! I don’t know if all the podcasts are commendable, because I checked the writers page and could find the “Leave a Reply” thing. If it’s true that we can’t comment on older podcasts, I’m sad.
Oh, good, you’re here too! I should check…
I won’t be here much tho.
AgentX10: Okay, well… this kinda messes things up. Do we want to find another one or just do the schedule on here from now on? Also let me know, I had given you this week, but is this too short notice now? I write something quickly if you want me too.
AgentX10: Ugh… I think I forgot to label that one as me. Sorry. This new website, while lovely, keeps throwing me off.
Verse of the day: I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
Jell-O: Hello! Yes, hopefully we’ll get this running smoothly again soon. Have you found a new place for the Wingfeather Page?
Not yet! We might wait and use the current main podcast page after a few more podcasts have showed up on the conversation moves on from there.
(Hey, this replying to comments thing is pretty great!!)
If you couldn’t tell, that was me. Sorry. 🙂
LOVE Adventures in Odyssey and Focus on the Family! Thank you so much!
Part 1: It matters who Jesus is for the same reason it matters what we think about God and the Holy Spirit. Our outlook of God immediately has more far-reaching ramifications than anything else in the world and your beliefs. What you think of God will quickly color how you think of everything else – especially how you determine right & wrong,
Ha ha Name(first name only)
Hello people, so now do I join this agency thing, do I just chat here too, or do I read stuff here or what? Please clarify
@Person The Agency was started a few years by Agentx14 and I. The point is it’s a way to serve God . It’s a place were kids can share favorite Bible verses, devotions are held each week. It’s a place wear people can share prayer requests and open up the hearts for concerns and worries with people there own age. Welcome to the Agency.
Thanks for the info, and thanks for the welcome, I check all the podcasts regularly so, I will be watching, dun dun daaaa!
So, this is the Agency???
Yup, it sure is.
This is my favorite verse:
Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with all gratitude in your hearts.
It points to Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and God the Father.
@Agentx10, Hi! Could I please join? Also, are you and Agentx14 siblings? Let me guess, you’re 10, and Agentx14 is 14?
GUYS? I need you to tell me…why can’t I see my posts!! Or comments I posted some last night too
They might have been rejected by the people who monitor the comments or they haven’t seen them yet
Verse of the day: There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
I love it!
I’m hoping to get a lesson posted sometime tomorrow!
Recently I was watching a seminar from one of Hillsong’s conferences. Joel Houston was speaking and he said a story that really struck me.
He spoke about a defect he had as a child that caused his chest to cave inwards, but then how as an adult he discovered a surgery that was developing for this very issue.
He went to the doctor, who told him that unfortunately he could only do it to children, because adults’ bones are too hardened. Defeated, Joel began to leave, but the doctor stopped him. He had noticed something. Turns out that Joel had another rare condition.
One that caused his bones not to harden.
Anyhow they were able to do the surgery but something went wrong. Joel said he woke up and there was the worst pain in his life coursing through his body and he just wanted to die. They told him they would have to go in again. All he wanted to do was die.
Recently, Joel went through a very painful time emotionally. He was extremely depressed for nearly a year. But the cool thing is, God used that time to purge him. He used it to bring out some incredible character and some incredible music and he also used it to remove the things in his life that were hindering those things.
And that surgery? When they went in the second time, they found a cyst. It would have grown into a cancerous tumor, but they were able to remove it very quickly. Had they not had to go in the second time, they would never have found it until it was too late.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
The point is simple. We all go through those in-between places. In a way we never get out the in-between places. But sometimes the pain blinds us and we don’t see what God is doing.
Being stretched is painful, but if we lean in and trust, God will work it out for good.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
Hold on to His promises. He’s gonna work it all out.
Wow! That is interesting story. Thanks for telling us!
Thanks! Great inspiratinal story!
Thanks so much!
I don’t know if this comment will go through. I don’t have email. What do I put in the website section? Sorry if this is confusing.
Your comments will still go throughs if you don’t have/put in your email, and you don’t have to put anything in the website part, unless you want to put I your website adress. (if you have one.)
Moriah, thank you! Sorry I’m just now responding. I haven’t been on in a while.
Verse of the day: Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
Thank you so much for sharing these things.
Agentx14, that’s a neat story! Thanks for telling it to us!
Lesson coming up!
Part 2: what you think of how you fit into the world, and what your priorities are. That in turn will surely determine what your actions are.
Preston is my brother and he changed his name to Suilad
Is there a Green Ember page?
P.S. I am Preston
Agentx10, could you please try posting lesson again? It didn’t all go through. It sounds really interesting!
@ Everyone, next week I am helping with our church day camp. Please pray that all the kids will be impacted by the gospel. And that us staff will do good job explaining gospel in a clear way. Thank you!
Oh wow just realized that only six podcasts on this page are commentable. (hope that makes sense)
i mean on the list of podcasts.
Hey guys! I just started horse back riding lessons, they are sooooo much fun! There are these kids that are being mean to me, and I don’t know what to do. Please Help Me!!!
Madison I’m sorry some kids are being mean to you I know what’s its like from both sides ( I used to be a bully myself but um yeah that’s a another story😥) any who I know this is going to sound crazy but be nice to them ya know try not to get mad or upset by what they say or do because that’s what they want you to do get mad. like if they say your outfit is ugly just say well I like it and that’s all that matters in a nice way though. and if you bring shacks with you ask them if they would like one. and remember sometimes kids act mean because inside they are hurting and making someone else hurt makes them feel better ( sounds weird but its true) just think about what Jesus would do. I hope this helps!💖 ill be praying too😃
Hi Madison I’m sorry some kids are being mean to you I know how that is from both sides ( I used to be a bully myself😩 😶) but anywho this is gonna sound crazy but be kind to them ya know. Don’t let them make you mad or upset because that’s what they want you to do.
Like if they say your outfit is ugly just say well people have different opinions. Just think about what Jesus would do. And if you bring shacks with you offer them some . And remember some kids like to be mean because they are hurting in some way and making others hurt makes them feel better a little bit( it sounds weird but it’s true)
I hope what I said helps you😊💖😊 ill be praying for you too!😄💗
Hi um do you mind if I join the agency 😯 i am a Christian and I think the agency is really cool! I just found it on here
Bunny hope: Yeah sure!
Madison: I’m sorry! I’ll be praying for you. I know how that is.
On the other hand, I absolutely love horses! We have a lot on our little farm plus a donkey and her baby! What have you been learning at your lessons?
hi y’all okay i haven’t been on here in a while, but i thought i would stop by with some encouraging words for y’all.
1. sometimes God lets you hit rock bottom you will
discover that HE is YOUR ROCK at the BOTTOM.
2. Always remember that with the Lord you can:
try and fail.
and still succeed!
Texas Cowboy, definitely true! I hear people say “God wont give you more than you can handle” but I think He does so we rely fully on Him. I love that we can always know God is our Rock and Stronghold.
Its nice to see you on here!
I love this Texas cowboy 😆💖 I am so glad that with God you can start over !!
me too! another thing i’m really glad is that Jesus never said’s” Now this is the last time i put you back to together”
Yes I’m so thankful God will help put us together as many times as we need it 💖😭”i’m crying happy tears” because if He didn’t there is no telling were I would be! I praise you God for saving me and putting me back together!💟😶😆
Madison, how are you? I will be praying for you!
Everyone, my week of helping at camp went great! Some unexpected things happened but it was still great!
MY mom has to have a surgery on her hand next Thursday. Can y’all please pray for surgery and quick recovery? Thank you!
Praying! I hope that it goes well ! 💙
Moriah and Penny Basset, Thanks so much!
Please pray for for my uncle! He has Covid!
I will be praying for your uncle pennybasset 🙏I hope he gets better soon. and I just realized they posted one of my comments like 3 times what in the world! Lol😂😂
Hi! Two prayer requests:
1. My mom has thyroid disease, and she is under a lot of stress right now and that is making it worse.
2. I am going through a thing with my friends where sometimes they act like friends and sometimes they act aloof and distant. One friend in particular is hard to read and kind of withdrawn. I don’t know how to act with her
I will pray for you Jell-o and for your mom !🙏💖 and remember that if your friends betray you or are distant there is a friend that will never leave you or forsake you and that friend is Jesus!😄💗 and I’m so happy/very thankful that God will never leave us ! Ps. I used to have a friend like that too like 2 years ago
Thank you so much!
I have a cousin with dislexia if that’s how you spell it, anyway, can you pray for her?
i will pray for her, my little brother is dyslexic, so i know how you feel:)
I will pray for your cousin pennybassett 💗💞 by the way how is your uncle ? Does he still have covid really bad? ( I really need to make a prayer list!😯)

Texas Cowboy: I love all your quotes!
I’d like to say thank you for all of you who prayed for my friends’ grandparents who had COVID. They are all better now!
Moriah, oh I am glad their better!
That’s wonderful Moriah ! I’m so glad they are feeling better!😊💟 I’m sure it was hard for your friends to go through that 😣
hi y’all had a min and thought i would stop by with this word for y’all:)
Just as a cowboy needs his boots in order to do his job to the best
of his abilities, we as Christians need God’s words in our hearts to do
our job to the best of our abilities.
I like this Texas cowboy😊 you always have great quotes💗💞
Bunny hope, aw thanks:) heres one more Texas cowboy quote
I know that He tells me to be glad when trials come to me, but instead
i always question if you love me at all, but i know you know me Jesus . Jesus
i know you listen to my cry, so Father i’m running to You tonight, cause
i need your help, cause i can’t fight this battle on my own. TBC
….. i Will give you
thanks cause you have lifted me, to make me see my life is in your hands.
This is really good😄, do you mind if I write down some of your quotes Texas cowboy😊
Bunny hope, thank you:) and no i don’t mind:) i actually have one more that i came up with this morning:)
I know You know me Jesus
I know You hear this prodigal’s cry
Father run to me tonight. cause i don’t
want to do this on my own anymore.

back together. i need a recuse.
I need You Jesus.

Please pray for us in California! There are so many fires everywhere! Our family is blessed though, we have it so much better than some folks, though the smoke is still bad.
I will pray for everyone effected by fires. Even here in WV the sun looks like fire as a result of the fires over there.
I will be praying for the fires, pennybassett 💞 and this is really random and you guys are probably going to call me a weirdo but, I Love you guys!💖💖 ( I love everyone that comments on here😆) even though i can’t see you or even hear you, it feels as if we have all become great friends!😄💗💗

●You can over come any obstacle blocking your way,
even temptation, through Christ!(see Rom. 8:37-39
●Don’t strive to be live someone else. Be who God created you
to be. Be You!
● who said normal is the goal? if your always trying to be normal,
you’ll never know how amazing you can be!
Like always Texas cowboy this was great !😆💖and yeah if you always act normal than yeah you won’t know how awesome you can be or crazy !😂dont act normal act like you!😋😂
Bunny hope, awww thanks::) actually the who said normal is the goal wasn’t my own quote i got it from the book know who your are(subtitle: live like it matters) by Tim Tebow:)
Texas Cowboy, I love all of these. Especially the last two. It always feels people want to fit in, so they change their uniqueness.
Yeah I feel like I need to fit in sometimes because I don’t act or enjoy a lot of things, like girls my own age do. But like I say, why fit in when you can stand out!😋😆
hay hello whats up?
Hay man whats up? haven’t seen you in a while:)
I love Tobymac!
I like Tobymac too! I really like the song edge of my seat and the song everything!😋and backseat driver that one is really fun/ funny to me
Guys, my brother got baptized today, before I was the only one of siblings that had been, but not now! I’m SO happy for him!
oh thats great pennybassett!😄 im happy for him too
ps if y’all want you can call me Timmy, i’m sure that some of y’all have been wondering what my name is, so i thought i’ve been on here a while, and i thought, that i would tell y’all:”)
you don’t have to call me Timmy, but i would like it if y’all did:)
thanks Timmy/Texas cowboy
okay for some encouragement:)
You+ Jesus can= miracles!
okay so its really short but thats all i had time to do today:)
Timmy, even if its short, it is encouraging!
My real name is Sophia.
Country Girl, Sophia, your name is really pretty;)
Timmy, thank you:)
Oh Country Girl I really like your real name it’s very cute !😊💕
Hope, thanks! one of my sisters middle name is Hope:)
sorry, the last comment is from me. My little brother was sitting with me and hit enter on my username before I finished typing it:)
your name is Timmy, Texas cowboy! I like your name 😊ill try to call you Timmy from now on but it’s kinda confusing now because it’s like you have two names now 😛 Texas cowboy and your real name Timmy! I would tell everyone my real name but I rather not,but my middle name is hope! That’s why I’m bunny hope!😊 and I just like bunnies😋
Hope(is it okay if i call you that?) ya i know:) its weird seeing my name on here, i see a comment to Timmy and i’m like oh whos that? then i’m like oh ya thats you! you’re not Texas cowboy and more:)(lol)
I’m Susannah. @country girl, that is hilarious, little brothers can be like that, trust me, I know.
PennyBasett your real name is very pretty/cute too! 😊💕 you all have great names!😄
you can call me Hope, I don’t mind Timmy!😊😋
Does anyone celebrate the biblical feast (Rosh Hashanah, Sukkoth, exc.)? My family is learning about them. We did some minimal things special for Rosh Hashanah bc it was our first time. A family at church is also starting to learn about the feast. My parents Are going to celebrate Sukkoth with them. I was thinking maybe y’all knew about them too.
i have heard\read about sukkoth and the other feasts as well i think 🙂 that’s cool that your family are celebrating them!😄 my family doesn’t celebrate them but i think we did it for school one time… maybe i don’t really remember 😂
Bunny hope, that’s neat. We are just learning and celebrating in little ways:)
for some encouragement:
We often depend on others to pay for what we can’t. While we are growing up, who puts the food on the table?
who pays the taxes? who pays for repairs on your house? Jesus paid for more than that. His gift took care of every mistake, you ever made and will make. now thats love. thats a gift worth receiving.
Hey guys so i won’t be on here for about a mouth. but after that i should be on here more:)
anyway just thought i would tell y’all:)
bye for now
~Timmy/Texas cowboy ~
Great encouragement Timmy! You seem to be on here more, do you still have a lot of work on the ranch?
can you guys please pray for me i keep getting these bumps ( i guess that’s what you call them) in my mouth and they hurt pretty bad 🙁 and they rub on my braces which makes it worse!😞 also my best friends mom tested positive for covid can you pray that she will get better. Thanks💕 ~ Hope
Hope, praying for you and your friends mom!
Thanks so much!😄💖
Hay guys, i’m at the ranch sales/auction and i had a min. before i have to go show some people the horses that we have for sale, so i thought i would stop by and share a word of encouragement for y’all:
Faith tells me that no matter what lies ahead God is already there.
don’t just be a leader, be a servant leader. Severe and lead.
For some encouragement:
● It takes courage to live a BOLD passionate life for Christ in todays world.
● Christ provides us with supernatural power, right when we need it the most!
i know this was short, but that’s all i have time to do today:)
Hey y’all, whats up? sorry i haven’t been on, we’ve been getting our cattle ready to go to the market, and weaning our calves, and fixing/putting up fence:)
~Timmy/ Texas cowboy
Timmy, sounds like your busy! I don’t know why people haven’t been commenting much on this post recently. I really liked your post about how it takes courage to be a Christian today. It certainly does!
My family is just busy with school, and some home projects.
Yeah Timmy your posts are great and I agree with county girl it takes a lot of courage and faith to be a Christian today, but we just need to know that God is always in control no matter what happens and that this world is not our home for christians our home is heaven! So we need to be strong and run the race until it is finished even if it seems no one else is going down the narrow path, we need to keep heart and keep going!😊 John 16:33 Philippians 3:13-14
A few days ago my little sister and I were laying in bed and we couldn’t fall asleep. All the sudden she started reciting poems and verses! It was so nice. That day I sprained one of my toes.
Can I join the agency?
I have a prayer request,
Please pray for a man that is friends with my dad, he has a tumer in his thymus and he doesn’t have a good doctor. Please pray.
I will pray for your dad’s friend chief😉💞. And sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve been on here I have been doing school and stuff and I kept checking on here and not that many people said anything so I thought this page was dying so that’s why I never put anything on here for awhile! 😛
Hi , I used to be on here a lot , the Agency has fallen asleep. And if am sorry about that. I am recruiting anyone who wants to help.
ill help, i love the agency! its so great we can share prayer requests with other aio fans that are Christians! 😊💖
Hey, its been a long time! i don’t know if you remember me, i’m Texas cowboy:)
i would like to help with the agency!
i’ve been trying to post something encouraging every few days,:)
Agentx10, Hi! I read your comment on a different post about you helping with first responders. That’s so neat!
I’m glad you are back on here.
for some encouragement:
Do you feel like you have been given a thorn in this life? A constant and never ceasing struggle to carry while you are here to keep you grounded and humble.
…..Know that even the most painful and burdensome thorns burrowed in us can be used for awe inspiring and amazing feats by our father in heaven. Even the least and worst of us can be used for God’s glory.!
If your always trying to be normal, you’ll never know just how amazing you can be!
Be you! cause being you is pretty awesome!
Thank you Texas cowboy/Timmy for all the encouragement quotes and things you put on here I always enjoy them😄! And this one is really great!😊 _ bunny Hope ps. Also Merry Christmas!💖🌲
no problem;) Merry Christmas to you too:)
I would love to help.
Hi everyone, I have some prayer request.
My grandmother is having surgery today to remove water from her brain. Its supposed to be simple surgery, but shes 81, anything can be dangerous when your that old.
Our friends dad had a heart attack. He has to have triple bypass surgery (I think that’s what its called). Its pretty dangerous.
Hey everyone. Heres an update on my prayer request yesterday.
My grandmother survived the surgery and is only staying in hospital one more night.
Our friends dad also survived his surgery, but his health is worse than the doctors thought. I don’t know how long he will stay in hospital.
Thank you for praying!
Thank you for the update, ill be praying for your dad’s friend!🙏 I’m glad your grandma went through the surgery just fine😊
Praying! Hope everything goes well!
bunny hope, thank you!
Your welcome 😊💖
Everyone keeps talking about the new/old website. What does that mean?
Joel, the old website was called whitsend. They updated that website to adventures in odyssey.com a few months ago. I hope that helps you out!
Hey all! I’ve heard lots about the agency and I think there’s an agency in the AIO club….. anyways, I was wondering if I could join?
of course! welcome to the agency:) we post bible study, share prayer requests, post encouraing comments, and just have a good time:)
ps my name is Timmy and or Texas cowboy, which ever you like better:)
Please pray for my grandmother. We had hoped the surgery would help her memory,but she is actually worse off than before the surgery. Also she lives over 1,000 miles away from us so its hard we cant help her and be with her. She has my grandfather but hes also old and has some health struggles. please pray for both of them.
ill be praying Country girl!💕🙏
Hi! So I used to have the club and their was the agency on there. Is this the same just for people who don’t have the club?
yes it is;) welcome:)
Hey y’all! How is everyone? Did you have a good Christmas celebrating our Savior?
hey! i had to good christmas, i was busy, but it was good:) sorry i haven’t posted anything, we’ve been super busy down here on the ranch. i’ll try to post something later this week:)
Texas Cowboy, I’m glad you had a good day.
@ everyone, 1 Peter :16,19
16Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify him in this matter.19 Therefore, let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing, as to faithful Creator.
Hi countrygirl!😊 I’m doing pretty good hope you are as well, I had a great Christmas! on Christmas day we mostly hanged out at the house and played video games with my brother!😂 but it was fun!😋💖
Those were some verses i am memorizing. As Christians we will face persecution, even more as we are nearing the Lords return…Some Christians in other countries are getting tortured and killed bc their belief in God. Has anyone ever read Gods Double Agent? It talks about being persecuted. Sometimes I get teased about my salvation but really TBC
thats not that bad. Yes, no one likes it but we have to be courageous.
I dont really know why i wrote all that. I think I was telling myself all this:)
I would love to hear verses y’all are memorizing!!
That was really good countrygirl! And the Bible says we are blessed for being persecuted! My whole church is trying to memorize all of the ten commandments and Matthew 22:36-40😊🌠
Thank you. I will look up Matthew 22!
For some encouragement:
God found Gideon in a hole. He found Joseph in a prison.
He found Daniel in a lions den. So next time you feel unqualified to be used by God remember that
He tends to recruit from the pit not the pedestal-Tobymac-
Timmy, love it!
Is that in one of his songs? If so, which one?
I don’t think so, i got it from something he posted on facebook a few weeks ago:)
thought for today
To us storms are huge, strong, and overpowering. To God they are little nothings that can be fizzled out with just a command to be still. God is right there beside you wanting to be found.All you have to do is ask and seek, and you will find him in the middle of the storm. Let God be the quiet in the middle of the storm this week
Texas cowboy/timmy, great thoughts!
How are you? Do y’all get much snow where you live? we have got about a foot of snow yesterday and today. Its so gorgeous here!
I am reading a book called Fountains of Silence. There is a cowboy as one of the main characters. Thought you might like it:)
Hey! i’m good, just really busy. we don’t get very much snow here, we just pretty much just get cold and wind:)
i’ll have to check that book out:)
There is lots of Spanish throughout the book. I did not realize it was not a Christian book. In the glossary several of the spanish words were bad words, so I quit reading it. The story was good but i did not want to have the bad stuff stuck in my head. Sorry for giving you a bad recommendation before I knew that.
Sophia, that okay;) i probably wouldn’t have, had the time to read the book any way:)
hows school going for you?
a word of encouragement for today:
God has this amazing ability to speak to all of us differently and uniquely because he knows each of us more than we will ever know ourselves. So don’t limit yourself on how God can speak to you, because God is everywhere and in everything and can speak to you in many ways. to be continued ….
Just be ready to listen for a whisper, because God will not always put on a grand display and speak loudly to reach you. A whisper quiet enough that perhaps you will have to push aside all the noise in your life that is covering him up, whether that noise is outside of you…or inside of you. Kevin Young
i hope this helped brighten your day 🙂
Hi everyone! hope everyone is having a good week!😊 could you guys pray for my brother he joined the army recently! pray that he will look towards God for his strength, hope, and peace and that my brother will get to the top and be the best!😆 Thanks 😊💖 -bunny Hope
i’ll be praying for your brother ::)
Oh wow, the army! Thats so neat! Of course I will pray for him. My dad was in the military
Timmy, school is going pretty well. I am doing a medical science this year. I LOVE it. Its all about the history of medicine, genesis of germs, diseases, vaccines, and all in a very biblical view. Its a curriculum called Matserbooks, its affiliated with Answers in Genesis. How is your school? What are you learning? whats your favorite subject?
Sophia, thats cool!
school for me is pretty good:)
right now i’m doing business math and accounting this year, i really like it!
its basically math, but in a business point, its been really helpful with things on the ranch:)
my fav. subject is math.(as long as its not algebra or geometry:)
Timmy, yeah i am doing geometry. Are you completely done with algebra and geometry? I love math that teaches me real life problems:)
Sophia, sorry it took me me soooo long to answer you:(
i just got done with my algebra, still have a few more chapters in Geometry:)
but right now for math i’m doing business math:)
which i really like:)
that medical science sounds cool anonymous! 😊😋 im thinking about doing a biology by matserbooks next year ! aslo im reading a book called fearfully and wonderfully made by Dr.paul brand and Philip yancey thats really good it ties in biblical stuff with the science! you might like it, if you like biology heath stuff and it sound like you do! 😄
Bunny Hope, i will have to look for that book!
Sorry i didn’t put a username in. The comments were from me.
Timmy and bunny hope, the last 2 comments are from me. Sorry, i meant to put in my name at end of comment.
oh ok lol that makes more scents now! i was wondering who anonymous was because i didn’t remember them joining thia page 😂😂
Hey Timmy just wondering if you and your family are ok, i know there was been a big winter storm in texas! and i also hope everyone else is doing good !✝😉💕
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He care for you. 1 PETER 5:7
has been, not was been ! ugh i need to read my comment before i post it >_<
Hey y’all. Please pray for my friend. She has a very difficult home life. Her parents dont protect her from worldly influences, bad situations, exc. We dont get together, just write letters. She is a Christian, but there is so many tempting things to her. Please pray she will seek the Lord in everything and that i can be good witness to her
Sophia, praying for your friend:)
but could you also pray for me, i was kicked by a horse, and broke my jaw and got aa concussion, and have to have surgery on monday. so if you could pray that i will heal quickly and that i will have peace about my surgery(i’m kinda nervous)
praying for your friend:)
how have you been ?
i’ve been okay, except i got kicked in the face my a horse my brother was training, and i broke my jaw and got a concussion, but other then that i’ve been great! still healing from the broken jaw and concussion, so i haven’t been able to work on the ranch very much:(
The comment took a while to post. Have you had your surgery? I will be praying for quick healing! I bet you miss working on the ranch. Praying for you!
Sophia, thank you! surgery went well:) i’m back to work on the ranch! which is really nice!
what have you been up lately?
Timmy, I am glad your back to the ranch! We just got a German shepherd puppy, so i have been busy trying to start training it to be a good protection dog. I am also working on a garden, its finally warm here. In 2 weeks we are having a lot of construction done to our house (turning our2 car garage into bedroom, carpeting my room,exc.)
i will anonymous
Chicken Cow, thank you soo much!
Hi y’all can you please pray for me, i have to have surgery on monday, and i’m kinda nervous
(if you would like to know why and what happened to cause me to have to have surgery feel free to ask)
im praying for you timmy( and for your friend Sophia!!💖✝) im sure the surgery will go just fine😉, and i know how it feels to be nervous about surgery 😟i have had at least four mouth surgeries when i was younger
hello! how is everyone doing!😊💕
Hey, are people still hanging out on here or have ya’ll disappeared??
Texas cowboy (or Timmy, whichever you like better), How are you? Are you almost done with school for the year?
@Everyone, please pray for our neighbors. They are very lost and oblivious to their need for Jesus. They go to “Church” but it is leading them even more away from Jesus.
Praying for your neighbors🙏
How come nobody is posting on here. I miss talkin’ to y’all!
Sophia, sorry i’ve been so busy, i’ll try to post more. how have you been? i’m doing pretty good:)
Texas cowboy, hi! I am good, just busy too😉 Our house has been under construction for a month. its finally finished, now we just have to get everything in order. Are you done with school for the year yet?
Sophia, thats cool:) i’m almost done just have a few more days left:)
how about you are you done with school yet?
and this is really random question but what kind of music do you like?
Timmy, I will be done with school pretty soon. some subject i do through the summer.
I love country music, but unfortunately most has bad language, bad content, exc. Do you listen to Alabama? I like them. Have you heard “Song of the South”? Do you have any music suggestions for me?🎶
Talk to ya later!
Sophia, yes i would song of south!
yeah country music can have a lot of bad stuff, but there are also a lot of good songs.
some of my fav.s are:
by Tim McGraw :
The cowboy in me.
My next thirty years
Where the green grass grows.
and By granger smith:
They were there.
Bury me in blue jeans.
Buy a boy a base ball.
sorry meant like. not would.. was typing to fast:):)
Also by Granger Smith.
Thats why i love dirt roads.
19 somthing by Mark wills.
I wish grandpas never died. by Riley green
Humble and kind by Tim McGraw
mud on the tires by Brad paisley
these are some of my favorite songs. let me know if you like them:)
Timmy, wow! Thanks! I have always loved I wish Grandpas never died. My great grandfather passed away..mud on the tires is great. I have also heard 19 something. I have listened to a lot of them but i will look up the rest.
Have you ever heard “Homemade” by Jake Owen? I only like that 1 song of his. Also,do you like Randy Travis and Josh Turner?
Sophia, oh yes i forgot of homemade! i really like that song:)
yes i do like both Randy Travis, and josh turner, i really like long black train by josh turner
Yeah i love long black train.
Have you ever heard “In Color” by Jamey Johnson? i really like it
no i haven’t heard that song. but i will listen to it:)
You just added a lot of songs to my favorite list! I love Buy a Boy a Baseball! and just Granger smith in general. Thanks!
Timmy i probably wont be posting until next friday. My brothers bdays are this weekend, and next week i am staffing a day camp at our church. Talk to ya later!
P.S. Have you ever listened to “Pickup man” by joe diffie?
Sophia, i hope you have fun with your brothers::) and at camp:)
no i haven’t but i will give it a listen:)
thanks for sharing, i always love to hear songs that i haven’t heard before:)
Hey how y’all doin?
i have a word of encouragement for y’all:)
Just like us cowboys can’t just ride for a short time once a week, we have to ride daily to keep up our skills. its the same with our faith, we need to work it daily.
hope y’all have a great week:)
timmy, hey im back! I had a GREAT week, but now im tired!! how are you?
Like your encouragement!
Hey Sophia, i’m pretty good just super busy. we’ve been moving are cows around and trying to get ready for our stock sales in about a week.
hows your summer going?
timmy, my summer is going great! you do sound busy! I know its a lot of work but it sounds fun working on a ranch. Do you always want to work there?
Sophia, yeah it can be a lot of fun, but there are some days like when its -10 degrees and your out breaking ice from the water tanks when i just want to throw my hands up and quit, but i love it too much to quit.
but if you mean like to i want to work there the rest of my life, that would be yes.
P.S what do you want to do after high school/what do you want to be?
im sure working on ranch has difficulties! Its great that you always want to work there though.
Timmy, im not sure what i want to do. I did a medical science and now i am interested in nursing, but almost all nursing jobs will make you take covid vaccine. I dont want to take it (sorry if i sound rude i dont know your thoughts on it). I really want to be a wife and mom, but i may have time in between graduating and getting married to work.
Sophia, thats cool:) and i happen to comply agree with on the the covid vaccine:)
this is a really random question, but do you have and siblings?
Timmy, im glad you agree. Some people i think will agree but dont.
Yes i have seven younger siblings ages 2 to 12. i love being the oldest. Do you have any siblings?
When do you start school back or do you do school year round?
Sophia, i have one older brother and one younger brother:)
well normally i would do school all year round but this year we’ve been really busy so i haven’t been doing school this summer. but theres a lot of math stuff involved with ranch work so its kinda like school school all the time:)
what about you?
Timmy, yeah im sure theres lots of math! I do take a summer break but do some work just so i dont forget:)
I gotta go now. we are finally putting up our pool today (just a 10 foot blow up pool)!
hey Sophia, not sure if your on here or not, but i wanted to stop by and say hi! i hope u had a good 4th:)
did you do anything fun?
Timmy, hi! I have not been on here bc i was at camp all this week again! It was awesome!
Yes, for the 4th we grilled, ate, played outside, then watched neighbors fireworks:) Did you have a good day?
Sophia, that sounds like fun:)
we did have a good day:) we went up to this lake in the mountains and brought our horses and swam in the lake with the horses, and spend most of the day up there, and then we had a really big thunder storm, so we had to come home early, but it was still a really fun day:)
Texas cowboy, Fun! I love going to rivers and lakes. Around here theres mostly mountains, not much water. I used to live in Tennessee, theres a lot of lakes/rivers and mountains there. Sometimes i wish i could move back there😀.
Have you ever heard “In Color” by jamey Johnson or “Pickup Man” by Joe Diffie? I really like those songs.
Sophia, hey! i haven’t heard in color, but i will give it a listen when i get the chance:) yes i have heard “pickup man” i really like that song:)
Texas Cowboy, hey! Do you enjoy reading? I love reading historical fiction, mystery, and missionary books. i just bought a book about Jim elliots wife and their story. Its really sad, but a good book!
Hi Sophia, i do enjoy reading but don’t have a lot of time to read but when i do its usually a missionary book or a devotional book:)
Timmy, yeah i love missionary books. Have you read any by Janet and Geoff Benge?
No I haven’t would you recommend their books?
Hi guys so ive been working on a poem for my mom and I want it to be perfect so I wanted to share it with yall first to see what y’all think of it anyway here it is.
Dad knows how to mend the fence when it breaks. Dad knows how to send that fly up high and sink it in the water just right.
But momma mends my heart when it breaks .
( Yeah theres a lot dad can do but there are somethings that momma best at. )
Yeah she’s got a marked up king james bible.
. A heart of gold
She might be tired and burned out but she always makes time to hear me out .
She put everything that she’s got and a whole lot into raising us kids
( Yeah theres a lot dad can do but there are somethings that momma best at. )
She told me to chase my dreams to let my hair in the wind. But she always said that when you get lost Jesus is your best compass.
Yeah thank you momma .
End on chorus
( Yeah theres a lot dad can do but there are somethings that momma best at. )
timmy, yes i really enjoy Janet and Geoff Benge missionary books!
Your poem is super sweet. I like it!
I have been staffing camp this week so i probably wont be on here until next week again. I have done 2 days 3 more to go!
Sophia, i will have to look into their books.
i hope you have a good time at camp:)
Timmy, Hi! i had a great time helping with the camp. There was over 300 kids! I have a prayer request for you. A family from our Church are hosting two orphans from russia for the summer. The kids have to go back soon. Please pray that they will remember Jesus and one day make the decision to follow Him. Thank you!
wow 300 kids! we have about that many people in my whole town!
i will be praying for the kids from Russia:)
Hi guys, sorry I haven’t been on for a while. How are you?
Also, I was wondering if I could challenge each one of you to memorize a chapter of the Bible each week? I think it’s really spiritually refreshing.
I haven’t seen you in a while how have you been?
I’ve been good!
Hi Penny and Texas Cowboy! How are you all? I started school this week so i have been busy!
Have you all started yet? I love my schoolwork, its just soo much!😀
Hey Sophia, i’m good:) just super busy i have a rodeo coming up soon so i’ve been trying to get my horse and me, ready for that.
i haven’t started school yet normally i would have by now, but cause i got hurt this year, i didn’t finish school till the end of July so i’m not starting this year until the 2nd week in September.
Timmy, are you completely better now? A rodeo sounds fun but a lot of work too! How many horse do you have? I have always wanted a horse but we dont have any flat pasture. Our property is mostly woods. Its nice for hunting but not horses. Do you have many other animals? We have chickens, a german shepherd, and some fish.
Sophia, i’m way better but still not completely better, getting better everyday:)
well the ranch has about 150 horses but me personally i have 6 horses
i also have a German shepherd and two goats and a cat:)
What color is your german shepherd? Mine is all black. We had a cat that had 4 kittens, then we got rid of her and the kittens.
I am glad your getting better!
I’m currently on my fourth week, and I’m LOVING it! School has been the best!
Sophia, my german shepherd is mostly black with a little bit of tan.
thanks, i’m glad i’m getting better too.:)
Timmy, I would appreciate it if you could pray for my dads job situation. I can’t really go into details but I would still appreciate prayers!
Sophia, i’ll be praying:)
praying for your dads job, sophia:)
Please pray for us as well! We are currently beginning to organize stuff to begin moving, because my dad is becoming the pastor of another church.
I wil be praying for you! Thats really neat he’s the pastor. How far are you moving from where you live now?
praying for pennybassett:)
I have some prayer request. My uncles is having some depression issues and is turning to alcohol instead of God.
My dad might lose his job in 2 months, because its a government job ( you probably know what I mean).
Sophia, i will be praying for your uncle and your dad and your family:)
Timmy, thank you! How are you? How did the rodeo go? ~Sophia
Hi Sophia, sorry i took so long to respond, been really busy mostly with trying to manage my school and working on the ranch and some other things that have been going on in my life, but other then that ive been great! how have you been?
Hi! Are you new?
so its been forever since i’ve done any encouraging posts, so heres one for y’all:)
Life is not measured by How many breaths way may take,
but rather how many moments that take out breath away and let us stand in
awe of the Lord and how great He is.
Having Jesus in your boat doesn’t mean that you won’t face any storms,
it means that when you do face the storm your boat won’t sink.
when you put your faith and trust in Jesus you never have to go through anything alone!
well i hope y’all have a great week!
One more thing I felt like I should share.
Prayer for today-
Lord this looks like a Dead end, but so did the red sea. This looks too big to conquer, but so did GOLIATH.
This looks like it’s over like it’s the end of the story
BUT so did the cross, so Im laying my life at your feet and reminding my heart
..That your writing my story Lord- not me. I don’t know the trail ahead of me but you do. So I’m trusting you. I give you all of me Lord. Mold me shape me help me to trust you completely.
Hope y’all have a great day!
Timmy, Great encouragement!
I have just been busy with school . I am trying to improve my photography skills. I would love to start my own photography business when I graduate (not this year!) Do you have a favorite subject in school? I am doing Chemistry this year. Its so hard! My favorite is probably math, its consumer math.~Sophia
oh thats cool. my favorite subject in school is math too, i’m doing business math this year and i really like it:)
Yeah the consumer math is a business math. I like learning problems I need in everyday life.😀
Sophia, yes i totally agree with you!
hey yall sorry i haven’t been on very much., been goin through some really hard times in my life right now, i would appreciate if y’all could pray for me:)
Timmy, hey. I am sorry your going through rough stuff.I will be praying for you! James 1 talks about trials making you stronger, so hopefully you will grow in your walk with God because your trials. Praying for you! ~Sophia
Sorry I took so long to answer Sophia! We are moving about an hour away.
PennyBassett, oh that’s neat. A few years ago, my family moved from a neighborhood to the gorgeous mountains. We moved about 45 minutes away.
hey y’all how did y’alls thanksgiving go?
Mine was pretty good. We had friends over. How was your thanksgiving? I have been busy with school and usual stuff.
I would really appreciate your prayers for my uncle. He is depressed and doesn’t realize how much he needs the Lord. Thank you!
Have you ever heard “in Color” by Jamey Johnson? I love it!
Sophia, i will be praying for your uncle. my thanksgiving was good:)
yes i love that song too!
Timmy, thanks! What do you do for Christmas?
hey sophia, sorry i didn’t get back sooner been really busy. for christmas we stayed home, pretty much just had a family day, and watched 80’s tv show reruns:) what about you? do you have any plans for new years?
Timmy, Hi! We watch lots of old shows too. Do you watch Andy Griffith? We actually had a different day we did our celebration on. Yes! For new year’s, we are going to some friend’s house to spend the night. I am going to go hunting with them, so hopefully I can kill a deer! My dad has shot some deer here, and some turkeys this season. Do you hunt?
Sophia, yes i watch andy Griffith, its one of my favorites. that sounds like a fun new year! I hunt a little bit, but i don’t have a lot of time to do it, cause i’m pretty much always got something on the ranch that needs to be done.
We watch Andy Griffith so much we have it memorized! Do you have favorite episode? I shot my first deer on the last day of the season, so that was neat! What else do you watch? We watch I Love Lucy, leave it to Beaver, Sue Thomas FBI, and old mystery/murder movies like Charlie Chan.
Sophia, i don’t have a favorite episode,that i can think of right now. thats awesome! the first deer is always the best! i also watch I love lucy, Leave it to beaver, Sue Thomas FBI, and some of my other favorites are, The Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, and Macgyver(all the original shows from the 80’s not the redone versions) and Roy Rogers flims
Yeah, redone ones are never good. We watch Roy Rogers too. I have seen some Dukes of Hazzard episodes.
Do yo have favorite AIO episode? “Have a Heart” is good, and I like the ones with Buck, especially the Green Ring Conspiracy!
How is your school going? Mine is good, I am doing Chemistry so thats kind of hard!
Sophia, my favorite episode is either The Ties that Bind or the Green Ring conspiracy.
School is going pretty good, i’m doing physics this year, its pretty hard but i really like it:)
Timmy, that sounds neat! For History, I am taking a government class by Notgrass. Its interesting, but upsetting when you see how the government was supposed to be ran versus now. What do you do for history?
Sophia for history , i’m doing an American government class from Bob Jones Press.
I have done some Bob Jones when I was younger. Do you do a variety of curriculums for different subjects? I do.
Do you enjoy reading? I do, when I have time! I like missionary books, nurse books, and some old books.
Sophia, i mostly do Bob Jones, but i take a business math and basic accounting class by Abeka.
i do enjoy reading but don’t have a lot of time for it but when i do read i either read missionary books or christian fiction books.
My business math is through lifepacs. Right now, I am learning about insurance on cars. I don’t drive, but it’s still neat to learn about. my parents don’t want me out on the roads when soo many dangerous things could happen. It will probably be different for my brothers, but my parents are extra protective of me, which is nice, most the time!
Sophia, oh yes the joys of learning about insurance:)
Haha! The worst part is my book doesn’t use modern day payment amounts. So, the price in my book is different in real life. But I guess they can’t really know the price because everything is always going up.
I will be a senior this fall, so I am trying to learn a lot of real-life stuff. Thats nice about being homeschooled, have more time at home.
Timmy. Hey! Could you please pray for me? On Sunday night I fell on ice and hurt my shoulder and neck. It still really hurts, especially during the night. Thank you!
Sohpia, sorry i didn’t get back sooner, been super busy, we just started calving season, so i spend most of my days and nights out with the herd, haven’t had a full night’s sleep in weeks, but i have to say that spring is my favorite time of year, green grass and new life, always makes me grateful for my life. ill be praying for your shoulder.
Thanks, I am better now:) I read a book about cowboys and was wondering how accurate it was. It sounds just like what you told me! I love spring too, especially after a long winter. I am so excited about gardening, already started plants inside. How have you been?
Hope you get some rest! Hard working people like you need it!
Sophia, i’m glad that your feeling better. i’ve been super busy, mostly with all the new calves and foals. and trying to find time for school. thanks i’ll try to get some rest. but that won’t happen for a while. cause after calving season we have harvest so i keep pretty busy. how have you been?
I am good! I got a new camera for my bday so I have been taking lots of pictures. I have just been busy with school, trying to see what’s most important to do. This fall, I will be a senior so trying to plan my last school courses! I don’t think I will go to college. I wanted to be a nurse but its hard to do that and not get vaccine.
