A small glimpse of me.

I hold a Masters Degree in Special Education with almost two decades of teaching experience as a classroom teacher and a special education teacher. I have experienced the educational process as a mother, a grandmother, and an educator. I know what it is like to entrust my own child's academic success to the professional expertise of others. I know what it is like, as an educator, to be entrusted with the academic success of your children. Day after day, year after year, your children as my students continue to teach me more than I ever imagined possible when I embarked upon this adventure called "teaching". Throughout the years they have taught me one very simple truth. Make it fun, make it interesting, provide hands on tactile experiences in which children can get involved, and they will experience the joy of becoming life-long learners. I have discovered that children learn best when they are supported with materials and content that intrigue, interest, and fascinate their imaginations. I have used my education and experience over the years to observe what works for kids including my own. I invite you to share with me the joy of teaching and learning for a life time.

The Twelve Tribes of Israel Our newest creation of many unique gifts! The LORD inspired me to make this map of the original twelve tribes and their approximate land boundaries, in part, due to the times we live in. The conflicts occurring in the land today are nothing short of prophetic bible scripture in nature, bridging a time span from Genesis to Revelation. The nature of the conflict and the unraveling of events on a global stage, demonstrate the amazing accuracy of Biblical prophesy. We're sure you will find this one of our premier laser engraved plaques, and certainly one of our most desired of all our engraved plaques. For this map I chose Honey Locust wood because God promised a land flowing with milk and honey to the descendants of Abraham. After entering the land from the wilderness it was eventually divided up in portions to give to Jacob's twelve sons and to Joseph's sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. Those portions, as well as other historically accurate sites from this era, are dramatically displayed on this treasure. It measures approximately 10" x 7.5"

This Hebrew ten commandments engraved gift is unequal in beauty, and is one of the most exceptional Messianic Jewish black marble engraved gifts you can find anywhere. It is laser engraved with the Ten Commandments in Hebrew on the left side, and the English translation on the right side with extremely meaningful words to all Messianic Jewish believers, and Christians alike. This particular design substitutes the word in Hebrew ""yod hey vav hey"" or YAWEH for LORD in the English side, and Elohim in Hebrew for GOD on the English side. Surrounded by an elaborate flower frame with a refined graphic post down the middle. Initially, God dictated to Israel the Ten commandments through Moses on Mt. Horeb. As Moses descended from the mountain he found the children of Israel worshiping a golden calf. In righteous indignation, he threw down the two tablets consisting of the ten commandments, shattering them to pieces. Afterward, God wrote two new tablets with His own hand, and gave them to Moses. Subsequently, these two tablets containing the ten commandments, penned by God's own hand, were placed into the Arc of the Covenant.

As we were designing this web site, an interesting point of fact came to our attention. That being, we are writing the word of God on stone (Marble) in a very unique way. The following scriptures lay a foundation for what I am about to say, so please read them, and consider.

Ex 20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.

De 27:3 And thou shalt write upon them all the words of this law, when thou art passed over, that thou mayest go in unto the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, a land that floweth with milk and honey; as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee.

Is not this the very essence of the New Testament?

De 27:4 Therefore it shall be when ye be gone over Jordan, that ye shall set up these stones, which I command you this day, in mount Ebal, and thou shalt plaster them with plaster.

De 27:5 And there shalt thou build an altar unto the Lord thy God, an altar of stones: thou shalt not lift up any iron tool upon them.

Now, having read this set of scriptures out of the Torah, I would point out this interesting fact. As we laser etched graphics and text on these pieces of stone - No tool of iron is used, but rather they are created by a laser. In a manner of speaking, this would mean that they are produced by extremely intense light. With that extreme sort of light, and man made tool of steel, iron, or any other metal touching the stone plaque. We come very close to obeying the essence of these bible scriptures when we make one of these breathtaking Ten Commandment plaques. To most this is irrelevant, but to some it might prove to be quite fascinating to think about! Now we know that the real spiritual truth behind these bible scriptures is that the LORD Himself would write His laws upon our hearts, not the tools of mankind, but by the infilling of the Ruach HaKodesh, or Holy Spirit and the work God does through His Spirit. For isn't this the essence of the Brit Autashaw, or New Testament. I think Jerimiah 31:31-33 indicates this very precept.

Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Jer 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

When it comes to unique gift ideas, this is the ultimate ten commandments engraved gift. It's wonderful to give the Ten Commandments to someone you love! We are proud to announce our Beauty For Ashes exclusive design, "The Ten Commandment Clock engraved on marble". This is an engraved gift that has no equal! This Holy Bible scripture is laser engraved upon Hulien Jade Marble, and portrays a visual drama of the fact that God Himself, with His own finger, penned the Ten Commandments into stone as a living covenant with the children of Israel for all of eternity. We have engraved the original Hebrew words for LORD and GOD, or "Yehveh & Elohiem" in place of the English words for the same. Should you wish the English forms of LORD and GOD to appear? We would be more than happy to do this for you at no extra cost. This marble clock measures approximately 8.5 inches wide by 12 inches tall.

      walls speak of a persons character and how they wish to be perceived. Wall decor is a a great way to surround yourself with the things that are important to you or remind you of the value of your character. I really like the ideas here, rustic decor certainly gives the sense of a natural and genuine living space. It is still all about location in my experience.
