You are encouraged to do your own research and obtain your information from as many sources as possible. Every youth may not want or need to use all the recommended resources, which is perfectly acceptable. In the past, we outlined and encouraged a bachelora€™s degree through Excelsior College and college level testing: ECE, CLEP, and DANTES. From ages 12-18, he took BYU online classes and matched them with with classic books from our lists. Since we begin high school in Year 7, youngsters use Years 11 and 12 to finish these courses and pursue personal interest studies. When or if you are tempted to blow off an assignment or do a rush job to get it out of the way of more fun things, think of this. Accelerated Distance Learning-Get this from the library and read the introduction through page 34 and 163-188 the week before you begin school work this year. Since you already studied Western Civ I materials during your Freshman and Sophomore coursework, you might consider reading the REA study guide for the course and taking this test before you begin studying this fall. After working through the Grammar Girl series, a certain group of youth who worked with me for several years, could not grasp compound vs run-on sentences or punctuation. If remedial penmanship practice is needed, here are some free resources: Click Here, Click Here, Click Here, Click Here.
Excellence in Literature: British Literature-read, study, and write according to the schedule in the book. This is the first step in learning this historical subject and will astound you to see how the ideas of men thousands of years ago still influence thought today. Vocabulary-Write down the new vocabulary and definitions listed in the book in bold as you find them in your readings throughout each week.
Study Guide-This is sort of an open book pretest right before the test to help you prepare for the real thing. Life With Fred: Calculus, Statistics, Linear Algebra (Choose a Life book or two each year that further you along the path. Transcribe (translate and write) favorite passages into English and narrate them in Spanish.
Memorize 1 hymn vocally and instrumentally per month and write a paragraph on its story and message. Both young men and young women should learn how to do organize a home and keep the home for at least one month, care for family laundry for one week, and plan menus, shop, and cook all meals for one week within family budget and health considerations. Another purpose is to help youngsters that dona€™t have the desire or aptitude for the college path. Now that your cottage is finished, build some book shelves, tansu stairs, and other compact furnishings.
Adventurous Project Choice 2: Build a hoop house to cover your new vegetable garden and extend the growing season. Adventurous Project Choice 3: This adventurous project that could be done as a family or sibling project.
Sewing is a dying art, because ita€™s much cheaper to buy poorly made garments from developing nations. In numerology, the human life path is actually divided into three major cycles that are divided by 28 years. These major life cycles can each be assigned their own number and interpretation in numerology to give an overview of the major influences that will dominate your life during any one of these 28-year periods!
This type of calculation is a little more complicated than usual because the time at which you will encounter these changes is all based on calculating your Life Path number.
First we will calculate his Life Path number, which if you will recall is the reduction of the birthday to a single number.
Add 28 years to that Life Path Number (1) and you determine the age around which Simpson makes his transition to his next life cycle.
His Middle Life cycle would span through the next 29 years (28+1) marking his entrance into his later life cycle at age 58.
Your Mid Life Cycle is your day of birth reduced to a single-digit or until a Master number is encountered.
Your Late Life Cycle is your year of birth reduced to a single-digit or until a Master number is encountered.
The years you make your transition from one Life Cycle to the next, are always extremely important and quite often represent significant milestones in your life. Please note that if the number adds up to Master number 11 or 22 that you do not reduce them in the last part of the calculation.
In the next installment of this newsletter we are going to give you the interpretations for all of the Early Life numbers including numbers one through 9 and the master numbers 11 and 22!
This is a common question we usually ask ourselves and to which there isn't a specific answer. When you exist in the great state of gratitude, you become a person who only wants to give. Since lighted candles can be problematic with puppies in the house, my friend suggested we build an electronic-candle bonfire and sent her husband to buy just the right ones. I spoke briefly about the Buddha tradition of offering a Metta Prayer; first for self, then those closest to us, and then to everyone everywhere.
To celebrate the creative spirit in all of us, I presented each of them with a drawing I had done of each of them based on an earlier time in Life. Here now, there is no way to know if this different kind of Winter Solstice celebration had meaning for them, but their upturned faces will live in my memory as a time when my intention was only to share love for them, for me, and for the creative process which is Life.
As this new year begins, I offer this Metta Prayer: May everyone everywhere receive a moment of pure love that can sustain them through Lifea€™s many changes. We stand and sit together in the silence of our prayers and observe the vastness before us. We chose on the same day, at the same time, to stop and to see the mountain and each other. So often when I consider what experiences have shaped me, my thoughts bring up the men of my Life. Today as I reflect more deeply about being shaped by experiences, it is the women who have continually touched my Life and who are held most deeply in my heart with gratitude. Not to be overlooked are my younger sisters; together they have taught me how to care for another. Perhaps the most overlooked experience-shaping women are all those who have given and received love without expectation of reward or credit. As I move towards a€?old age,a€? it is not how fast I can run, how well I can write, or how well my accomplishments will be remembered that sustains me.
It is easy to believe that the opposite of love is hate and the opposite of fear is courage.
This concept is difficult to accept if we equate fear to weakness and avoidance of physical harm as the only fear. So new were the views from this direction, I missed the path entrance that would take me on around the lake to the dam and back home.
So there I stood wanting both things; to protect my knee and to know where I had missed the path.
Asking what I most want is a process that serves me well for big decisions; I often sit quietly before acting. We stand face-to-face and as he explains the importance of getting his name right, the ancestors within him shine through the sincerity of his eyes and soft voice. He is a black man in the autumn of his life; and me, I guess most would say I am a white woman in the winter of mine. From high atop the Circus arena looking down, a giant, dark-blue curtain divides two worlds.
On the one side of the giant curtain is the crowd; excited by the bright lights and colors theya€™ve come to see. On the other side of the giant curtain, back-stage, are the performers, the animals, the equipment, and staffers who care for them. At the bottom of the separating curtain, the would-be performers ready themselves to cross into the other world. As the show ends and the rigging begins to come down, a young woman from the audience approaches; she asks if she can look down over the curtain to the back-stage area. In that moment, it occurred to me that I too had prepared at home in private, and then had come to the arena to perform my roles. During my journey home, the numbness was there inside me, and I sat with it feeling and thinking very little; just letting it be there. In those few minutes of deep pain followed by a sacred touch of deep healing, it seemed like my heart expanded and I was finally free of the past.
Now as I lighten my load in preparation for my move across country, it feels so right that this beautiful bed of comfort from my past moves too. At this time of Thanksgiving, the promise of each moment fills my being with gratitude for my transformation from living in a bed of thorns to joyfully sharing a life lived fully. This week chatting with friends, someone said that I ran on my own time, and I said that I ran on kairos time. On my way home, I remembered that when my children were young, I told them that in order to use a word they needed to know how to spell it and what it meant. As chronos time passes, I want to be more awake to the kairos time in my life; to be so present in my life that I can feel each moment with clarity and gratitude. To add to my self-judgment, the young woman who had inspired my longing to try stone carving was unexpectedly occupying the table next to mine along with her friend, who was also an accomplished stone carver. The only thing to do at this point was to begin; the instructor suggested an abstract design as he does for most beginners. The next day it seemed like a good idea to look for photos of abstract stone carvings online. The instructor sent a supportive email, and I returned his email saying that changing my mind was not likely. Yes, the government school system looks at year 9 as a freshman in high school, but most youth are more than ready for the challenge. Because he is the youngest and had little contact with other youth, he invited other home schoolers on his at home college journey. Then at 18 the youngster can attend any college for the 'experience' at the senior level bypassing most of the liberal agenda of the entry level subjects.
If Dad is agreeable, read aloud together in the evenings after your young siblings are put to bed. Working with a couple youngsters with test anxiety, I could see clearly how they shot themselves in the foot and failed. When the youngster has beautiful handwriting and excellent spelling, they are ready to stop but not before.
Make sure to follow the assignments exactly including any reading or vocabulary building assignments.
Classic in this sense refers to a living book that speaks to the soul instead of a book that has endured the test of time. Using last year's schedule as a guide, design a schedule to attach to the front and back covers of your notebooks. She should check to make sure you are keeping up, being neat, correcting your answers, etc. Ia€™ve worked with a large number of 12-13 year old boys (and some girls) that have convinced themselves that they arena€™t college material. Learn to keep an apiary (aka become a backyard bee keeper.) Using the book First Lessons in Bee Keeping, build a beehive, install a purchased package of bees, care for the hive, and if you are lucky, harvest honey. If the book is scheduled to be read over 12 weeks, divide the number of pages in the book by 12. Exactly when you will be changing from one life cycle to the next is dependent on your life path number.
The age at which you make the transit from one cycle to the next is subtly determined by this so your next step is to refer to (or calculate) your Life Path Number. As mentioned above, you can determine the year that these transitions will happen by adding your Life Path number to 28 years. This is the mark of a loner and an eccentric who may be somewhat divorced from is emotions.
This year as I planned my first shared celebration with family, I was struggling to come up with a way to keep it simple enough for those unfamiliar with my process and still retain its deep meaning for me.
My daughter wanted to help me return my rental car early in the day so I didna€™t get a chance to shop to support an idea of celebration I had come up with earlier.
I scattered the small cards on the table in no particular order and invited each of them and then me to choose one.
Now as I write here, I am reminded of a Christmas Day long ago when I was wondering how different people with different traditions could possibly find a common ground. My habita€”started with my Mom long agoa€”is to turn it over in the hand of someone nearby to spread the luck of finding it. He speaks out of the stillness and says, a€?It is a blessed day and you are part of that.a€? I agree, shake his hand, and get into my car feeling at peace without further words.
The strong Father figure, the older brother, the brother-in-law, the clever science teacher, my first mentor, my first love and my most current loves, my sons and grandsons by blood as well as those adopted within my heart have influenced my physical life in so many ways.
First of course is my Mother, who gave me Life and taught me the benefits of caring for my body and my surroundings. When she was a baby, our shared experiences taught me about determination and strength of purpose. In my Life they have been called friends, but that does not describe who they have been in my Life and how they have shaped my choices. It has been my choices in response to shared experiences that have shaped my sense of joy and meaning.
When examined closely as states of being, love and fear become each othera€™s opposite, and Lifea€™s energy flows from us depending on which state is most prevalent. The larger concept includes fear of loss, fear of non-acceptance, fear of loneliness, fear of being blamed, fear of not being special, fear of not being loved, fear of not being able to love, fear of not being enough, fear of our own fear; the list is endless. Instead of coming to the dam, I found myself about to cross the golf cart bridge at the opposite side of the lake. He taught me the importance of being present and trusting that the experience Ia€™m having with another will be the one we need. One moment they are back-stage sharing and living their lives and the next moment they cross over and become their roles in the bright lights under the big top.
Their faces are bright and concentrated with wonder as they gaze upon the incredible performers as they fulfill their roles. I tell her a€?noa€? because that is my job here high atop the arena where both worlds are visible. The portrayals of the characters created an environment of real feelings made visible, maybe too visible for me to take in immediately. Compassion flooded my mind and body for all us humans that have harmed each other in ways we have not been able to say out loud; those who have numbed out for fear of feeling more pain than we could bare. As I let go of the past and live more and more in the present, my bed has found a new home. It pleases me that one so lovely as this future nurse will share the next chapter of my bed of healing. When asked what that meant, I gave the explanation that I had heard so many years ago and had embraced as my own definition of how I would like to live.
If they did both of those things and still felt it was appropriate for their use, I was okay with that. To see the magic of a flower bursting into bloom, to watch the changing of the seasons, to hear the mating call of the owl outside my window, to feel the love of my grandchild as he shares his Halloween candy on Facetime, to feel the energy of my daughter as she prepares dinner in the background, to laugh out loud with a friend, to watch the sunset, to hear excitement in the voice of others, to feel the wind in my hair. As with much of my experience, the story of the stone came first and the wisdom of the stone followed in sometimes painful and sometimes amazing small steps. The next day, with the pressure of performance for others no longer triggering my fears, I set up a permanent workstation in the garage.
My process of co-creation with the stones inspired a poem and became a Mothera€™s Day present for my daughter.

First, it is important to hear the language of real literature, which will provide consistently accurate and complicated aural language patterns and build vocabulary. Although some youngsters do not plan to go on to college, those that do may wish to consider working with North Atlantic Regional High School for an accredited diploma. Working diligently, a youngster can usually accomplish all of the following in about 30 hours per week.
BYU online allows anyone to work through classes toward 75% of a degree completely from home. He started out with an upper level English course using Lord of the Rings as its core along with BYU core classes. You have many tools in your scheduling and studying tool belt to help you move forward at a reasonable and steady pace through your work. When you go to practice and the coach asks you to run stadiums or bases, do you walk over and pick daisies.
Some of my fondest memories as a mother center around reading and discussing deep subjects with my high school aged youth. After completing the tests assigned at the end of your Junior year, you will have 45 college credits.
After they have listened to understand, we want our young people to know how to speak up and not to be afraid to share their perspective on key social and political issues in such a way that they can be heard. Because beautiful penmanship is a necessary and useful skill, it is almost criminal neglect this portion of our childa€™s education. Divide pages in half vertically for this as in the On Your Own section, writing corrections on the right side of the page in red.
Now that you are a youth, you should plan for your future which may include the need to care for your own budget, home, clothing, and cooking. During year nine, make one or two items of clothing for yourself or a family member with thine own hands. Next to the subject, write the name or abbreviation of the book and the number of pages you have scheduled for that day. While the building of character, training of logical thought processes, and developing a lifelong hunger for learning are the priority goals of education, we must be realistic in the fact that our young men and some young women will need to support themselves and a family at some point. This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilt Narratives” substantiates the viability of the sweat equity investment made through labor and cultural contributions by Cotton Pickers and other Plantation Workers. Each of us read our part of the prayer out loud: May you have a deep and abiding peace, May your life be filled with wonder and gratitude, May you know the source of well being, May you know joy, May your life be filled with abundance.
It was in an unexpectedly quiet moment after we sat down for dinner that my 2+ years-old grand-son said almost in a whisper, a€?Merry Christmas Grams.a€? He went on around the table wishing all there a Merry Christmas by name.
And although there is a summer breeze, the air surrounding him is quiet and filled with calm. The experiences we have shared have triggered within me the need to shrink at times and to grow by leaps and bounds at other times.
Our relationship was sometimes contentious, which created in me a need to think for myself and to stand firmly within my choices.
Together we have shared victories and defeats, wins and losses, and have stood together and faced our new futures with strength and resolve; a strength and resolve built on shared experiences and love for each other.
They have listened when I needed an ear, they have been honest with me when I needed clarity, they have called me when I was lonely, they have tolerated me when I was difficult, they have loved me when self-love seemed impossible; their loyalty has been a sustaining force as I make choices that may not agree with the choices of others. So today, especially for the women who have deeply shared themselves and their experiences with me, I am filled with the shape of gratitude. Now what seems true is that fear of being a victim kept me from the intimacy for which my soul longed. They look for their seats in anticipation of the performers on the high wire; performers who will become clowns, dancers, jugglers, ring masters, animal trainers, etc. A beautiful young girl becomes a princess carrying the American flag on the back of a giant elephant. On the back-stage side of the curtain there is the intimacy of close friends and family, sharing and contributing their talents to put on the greatest show possible. The performers create their bigger-than-life magic for the center ring and my job is to protect their privacy and their illusion when they return to Life back-stage. It was amazing to see both sides of the curtain simultaneously and the miracle of transformation of those passing through.


Although Ia€™m not sure what was going on with the others there, inside me was complete stillness and a growing numbness. The family portrayed was dysfunctional to say the least; it kept many secrets and the only emotions the members seemed free to share with each other were anger and disappointment. Compassion for anyone anywhere that came into this physical existence to become aware of the rage within along with the courage to heal it. No matter how I sought comfort, it seemed I was lying in a a€?bed of thornsa€? and each movement tore at my soul; so many questions and no answers. You may be thinking that all this remembering and romanticizing about a bed is just that; just thinking. She said that chronos time was literally minutes and seconds as expressed on clocks and that kairos time was the time it took an egg to hatch, the time it took a leaf to fall from its branch, and the time it took for a butterfly to come into being. The part of me that gets excited to try new things immediately searched out a a€?class for beginners,a€? or so I thought. My fear of failure was more present than the stone before me, and my mind chatter was pervasive. I would try carving for 30 minutes at a time and see if my patience and energy could sustain that much effort. Earlier when I read that Michael Angelo said, Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it, I knew intellectually what he meant. The author is not responsible for any loss, inconvenience, damage (whether special or consequential), or claims arising out of the use of the information contained in this series. Equally as important is for Mother to spend some enjoyable one on one time with each of her children. Later he branched out into English, Foreign Language, Logic, Government, Math, Science, Religion, and History courses that met the requirements of his desired degree, which he found on BYUa€™s website for his degree.
While Dad may not be interested in some things, chances are he would welcome a nightly economics book club with his favorite adult in training.
Since beginning this journey, some scholars have dragged their heals before taking their first college level tests. There is too much mud slinging and not enough real dialog (written or spoken) in society today.
Practicing in this manner assures that you will be healthy and hygienic not broke, hungry, dirty, smelly, and sick. Adventurous projects like the off-grid cottage in Year 8, can help these youngsters discover their intelligence.
In January order a package of bees (We like Bee Weaver Apiary in Texas.) Bees arrive in early spring. You might further divide the number of pages per week by the amount of days you plan to read that week. Don't fret about this too much now as the example below explains the calculation more fully!
The following evening, Friday November 13, the “Cotton Pickers Ball” shall be held at 7:00pm, in da’ House of Khafre, located at 300 Main Street, Indianola. By opening my heart to the creative process for which I have such deep gratitude, the Universe supported me at every turn.
Our collective energy grew quiet and this collective prayer became my spoken hope for our family and everyone everywhere. My actions in response to those shared experiences have without a doubt had a profound part of shaping who I am and who I am becoming. Without any specific effort, she taught me to sing, to write poetry, to take risks, and to trust that being who I am will serve me best. Perhaps even in disagreement, it is a bond of unconditional love found nowhere else; it is ours. As an adult, she has stood by me with a loyalty supported by one of the most loving hearts I have known.
When those choices have created pleasure they have cheered; when those choices have created disappointment, they have stood with me in silence. At other times, we may take on a project from a state of fear to avoid an emotion we dona€™t want to acknowledge or feel; to stay busy. They seem to have permanence, but when observed closely they are filled with cracks and colors created by their adjustments to their environment. Up until this moment, I believed it was because the wind blew my hair as I stood on the hillside. These woods are familiar to me and so I turned and bushwhacked up through the trees back to my well-worn path. He and I are the collective experience of generations raised together separately, and within us both is the deep human need to know that we, all of us, matter. And yet, here we are; two open hearts meeting through the experiences we have in common and our courage to be real in the presence of the other. When I left the arena, I gave thanks for the learning about illusion and intimacy that my visual Circus experience had offered. There was a residue of heaviness as I got into my car and began the long drive home over the mountain. It was the story of kept secrets, addictions, betrayals, separations, denials, suicide, and judgments. My heart began to beat harder, faster and my throat seemed closed to the air around me; breathing was difficult. Our level of healing comes in ita€™s own way and time and catches us when we are brave enough to experience the deeper pain and just be with it. In a flash of wisdom borne out of acceptance for what was not to be, a voice asked me to begin again and I responded.
As it fell from its box, its pieces glistened as the sunlight entered the room and bounced and scattered along its surfaces.
Her eyes sparkle and dance like stars filled with the enthusiasm and challenge of her youth. I loved the concept of time described as kairos time, but didna€™t investigate the meaning further. She tried to find it on the Internet without success so I said Ia€™d find it and send her the web link. Immediately I wanted to feel inside me when and where I had experienced a kairos time moment.
The instructor chose a stone for me, which was my first encounter with my fear of not being in control of my experience.
I had my stone, I had my photo idea, and I had determination to make something from this imperfect stone. Now with the intimate experience of sharing and being open to the wisdom of the stone, I understand what he meant with my heart. I can think of no better way than to read aloud to each one privately, possibly at bedtime. Another option is BYUI, which for some students is a better choice and some just a bit too quickly paced. Being prepared and comfortable is much better than cramming and counting on superior intelligence. It is probably quite a financial investment but far less than you pay for the same amount of on-campus credits. It is not perfect in content, but will open their door to respectful but concise content review and commentary. Use selections from Prose and Poetry of England for copywork, dictation, and poetry memorization. If you choose to do experiments, write down all experiments in an orderly format as you were instructed last year. Step up your organization skills in the area of science and learn to follow instructions precisely.
Not only did this prevent the usual teen apathy, indolence, boredom, and mischief in their family, the earnings paid for college and missions for all of them. Cushions 29 inches wide and 6-8 inches tall are a comfortable compromise between couch and bed size.
Care of bees is minimal and easily done without the use of chemicals with bees from Bee Weaver. For instance, if you have 60 pages of something to read in one week and don't desire to read 60 pages in succession, you could divide it by 3 or 4. All are encouraged to attend both events in costume attire worn in the cotton fields, such as “overalls and straw hats, etc.”The 1st Annual Historical Narrative Competition enhances this year’s Symposium. It was a painful time of self-discovery, and the process of change consisted of many small steps.
As I arrived there, I wondered where I had made my mistake; but having a sore knee, thought perhaps I should continue the short distance to the dam and home. His words sooth something deep inside mea€”perhaps all the wounds of those who have come before me. Each time since when Ia€™ve met someone for the first time, I have quieted my mind and truly listened. A small young man becomes a high-flying aerialist when moments before he chatted via his cell phone with his girlfriend on the back-stage side of the curtain.
Role-playing is fun, exciting, entertaining, and requires support, practice and skill; however, being stuck in the illusion of a role makes intimacy impossible. These actions were stirred together with their suppressed feelings and the result was painful fear turned inward and then outward to rage. There was no place to go and nothing to do except to continue the long drive home in peace and gratitude. She aspires to be a nurse and her warm infectious smile indicated she has the compassion and caring to become a very good one. The concept of kairos time came back to me often over the years since all the clocks in my house are set to a different chronos time, and I rarely know exactly what time it actually is. It would be impossible for my finished carving to be good enough to stand up to the surrounding competition. Although encouraged by the others, my sense of joy at having found the class was as pale as the alabaster stone. The cleaning of the stone continued during this class and the stone began to have a nice curve about it.
In some places it was very hard, some places very crumbly, some places pure white, some places orangey pink. Love of the work and stone replaced impatience and with the stone guiding me, we co-created an abstract shape that is called, Moth to the Flame. Dona€™t give up the idea of finishing college by 18 if at all possible; simply take a bit more time with the books if necessary. If you did your coach or instructor wouldn't keep you on the team or in the studio for long.
Recently, a young person took a five credit math class at SUU, which cost $1679 plus books. Use the questions following the booka€™s selections as narration prompts and learn the definitions and spellings of any listed vocabulary.
If you follow these instructions, you will learn a lot more about chemistry and be proud of your work.
That hints at part of the purpose of these adventurous projects: familial congeniality, boredom busting, and entrepreneurship. Finally, not all college educated adults want to enter the rat race or walk a conveyor belt; these projects can help entrepreneurial minded people explore some interesting possibilities. If the cottage is to be a primary dwelling, build the drawers with food storage in mind: 25x10x8 holds 25 lbs of rolled oats or beans. If you are very lucky, meaning the weather cooperates, you may harvest honey your first year. Instead of checking off each box as you finish, write the number of minutes that you spent reading or doing that task.
Milestones Academy offers tools to prepare for a career without college such as Universal Accounting, Master Herbalist Certification, NAMC Preschool Teacher Certification, or Nand2Tetris as well as a complete college preparatory course with accelerated entry. Mississippi Delta high school seniors and MVSU students will compete for a trophy and gift card provided by Khafre, Inc and Lost Pizza, Company.
In the stillness, he begins to share that he has stopped on the mountain to pray although he is unsure what that prayer might be. She was the person most likely to be holding my hand when my very busy Mother had other hands that needed her. Once I discovered through each small step that I could choose what I wanted to create, my Life began to evolve from a state of love more often. It captures the water among its stones and sends the flowing bubbles into the valley creeks of my neighborhood, also called StoneyCreek. Here was the golf course, over here were the mountains, and there was a beautiful old tree.
Ita€™s about getting their name right because I care; and because in that very moment, there is something beyond their name that matters. The performers are a€?just beingsa€? in preparation for the roles they will play; most are in old jeans and baggy shirts and jackets.
Another slightly older man, who moments before was giving his mom and dad a tour back stage, is now the lead clown contributing his gift of making people laugh to the mix.
Eckhart Tolle once said, a€?I am not a spiritual leader when I go into a coffee shop for coffee or tea, Ia€™m just thirsty.a€? Is there a curtain inside you that does not allow intimacy to flourish because you believe the role you are playing is you? And piece-by-piece, it supported my soula€™s restoration: I slept in it, ate in it, watched TV in it, cried in it, dreamed in it, wrote in it, and laughed in it.
My internal clock is usually quite accurate enough for my purposes, and I dona€™t wear a watch, which pleases me greatly. A moment full of potential when I can go beyond thinking about something to feeling the importance of this moment in my life. As this fearful familiar thought appeared, another thought about it not being a competition was a voice of reason that I could hear clearly.

Using a planner like the one below, the student can easily plan subjects and track time spent.
An average university student sits A class 12-20 hours a week and studies 2-3 hours per hour in class, and an scholastically minded high school student attends class 30 hours a week and does 3-5 hours of homework per night.
While we have agency to choose to follow rules or not, we cannot avoid consequences, good or bad. This should put the cost of this year's books, study guides, and test fees into proper perspective for you. Comparing and contrasting Sproul with LDS beliefs, we gain more understanding of a different Christian religious denomination and culture. Although the pictures below are good inspiration, in a 14X14 cottage space is more limited. After completing Year 10, which is the last year of high school for Milestones Students, youngsters begin a course in great books, finish up college testing, and possibly begin the following careers. So without thought, I let a Metta Prayer come through me and wrote a part of it onto each of the five cards.
She taught me to accept responsibility, to not whine, and to love deeply in the face of loss and disappointment.
Sometimes it rages in noisy cascades, and sometimes it forms quiet ripples over the stones. A young mother becomes the center of attention as she commands enormous animals all around her and she sparkles without fear. I can feel my heart beating and opening again to all the difficult and pleasant moments when I was at a crossroad and took a small step toward growth.
My mind leaped to judgments about how I should have been present when others were selecting their stones so I would not be stuck with this less than ideal stone.
So as not to get behind, I started carving at home; unskillfully struggling with the stone to make it look like the photo. Since youth should learn how to schedule time and activities at this age, we do not offer schedules at this point. We worked 4 days per week from 8-3 and rarely did anything except music practice, cooking, scouting, and adventurous projects outside these hours plus Wild Day once per week. Plus, if you apply yourself, your education is a world class classical liberal arts education instead of a cram, test, and forget degree.
Since we can't expect everyone to believe what we believe, we must look for truth where we can find it but not embrace beliefs different to LDS teachings. Frustration and deprivation may have created a competitive individual who may have never matured emotionally.
All projects must be delivered to the MVSU Social Sciences office “T” by 5:00pm November 5th, (or call organizers to arrange for pick up).
I spoke briefly about how much this time of year means to me and how in ancient times people built bonfires to remind the sun to return.
He talks about choices and consequences, and my energy quiets in memory of other such conversations. We take different paths at times, but we meet in the nurturing field of trusting the universal source of Life to sustain us.
If we discover fear and do not want to create from that state, we have an opportunity to choose differently?
Compassion, a state of love, for the part of me that still fears victimization brings me back again and again to the present moment; the only time and place where choice is possible. Some of the stones are tiny and some are boulders brought down from the mountain during long-forgotten storms.
I hold them in my hand, I look at them, I cherish their beauty, and I do not compare them with any other stone I have seen. We tell each other about those we love and what sharing our lives with them has supported us in learning. One person at a time, we are capable of learning to be comfortable in the present experience regardless of our history, race, or gendera€”that is a huge learning. Looking down as some beings perform in the bright lights of the big-ring and some beings stand ready back-stage awaiting their turn, the elephants, camels, horses, and dogs are brought into the dimly-lighted area and made ready for their curtain calls. My intention was to stay with whatever was occurring in this moment for as long as it took to find compassion for the part of me that feels wounded by acts of past betrayal, my own and othera€™s.
There are many thoughts from that time that trigger sadness still, but the sight of that sweet a€?bed of healinga€? continues to stir feelings of joy within me. As she tested it out and smiled up at her Mom, my heart softened with tenderness and joy for the promise such young people represent. In some of those kairos time moments, chronos time stood still and in others, it raced ahead of me and I had to run to catch up. It wasna€™t working, and after hours of grueling effort and messiness, my frustration level was high. This testing degree should cost less than a yeara€™s worth of tuition, books, and fees at university.
Added the meaning of Metta (kindness) to the outside of the envelop along with the definition of Namaste (the light in me honors the light in you). We opened the candles Brenda had suggested, and it was a creative process to get them to work. In him I see no self-pity only acceptance, and he shares how that acceptance has left him in such a peaceful place. This spot of nature is surrounded by a variety of trees that cast their shadows over me and everything else.
We are human, we succeed and stumble, we need to feel we are seen for who we are right now, and we need to demonstrate to each other that we matter; and what seems to be my life lesson over and over again, your need is as great as my own. Some are running toward the dressing rooms, perhaps arriving late and rushing to make their curtain calls.
It is my amazing gift to watch both worlds; there is an instant transformation whether the performer is going into his role or coming back.
Even now on cold winter nights, I sometimes take my books and curl up in its softness, fall into a peaceful sleep, and wake restored. I hit the chisel hard with a hammer and a large chip of stone sailed across the porch and away from the curvy part at the stonea€™s top; my design ruined. If your homeschool is anything like ours, every waking moment can be counted in some way as school for these records.
If you blow off learning correct spelling, a variety of sentence structures, excellent essay structure, and good grammar, you may be able to get your point across but won't have elegant, articulate writing.


All Bible-believing peoples share the same moral views even if from slightly different angles. While it is true this is shorter than a regular bed, it is plenty of room for a small adult or average child. One old oak tree, near the edge, anchored in the stoney bank reaches with ita€™s mighty branches toward the creek.
Some are dressed in black so they will be less visible as they come and go between the two worlds in support of the others. Kairos is pregnant time, the time of possibilitya€”moments in our day, our week, our month, our year or our lifetime that define us. Defeated I laid down the tools, cleaned up the mess, put the stone in the garage, wrote the instructor an email, and quit the class.
This book, the others in the series, and English Literature for Boys and Girls all help prepare youngsters for various literature tests as well as whetting the appetite for the best books.
The candles were eventually lighted and our circle was formed by our combined effort to make it happen. So I share my love of nature and photography and how I am practicing staying in each moment to find the richness here while grateful for all that has come before and, as much as possible, staying open to whatever the future brings.
The hillside behind the creek is eroding red Virginia clay made bare from ita€™s years of withstanding the watera€™s strength and speed. Some are warm, some are round, some are cool, some have deep crevices, and some are so smooth to the touch. Although scoring well on tests isn't the main goal, it is a means to an end, the bachelor's degree. Understanding the connection between agency and anxiety is the first step in eliminating it from our lives. This easily reproduced table from IKEA fits wonderfully, making this a four function area: conversing, eating, studying, and sleeping. In each of their faces I saw a different energy, but the one constant in all of them was their willingness to participate. There is no attempt to a€?fixa€? or get something from each other, we are merely sharing our history or holding space for the other to share.
The time flew by and without my knowing it three hours passed; the stone was beginning to form itself. Putting testing aside, you will find inelegant writing to be a hindrance in other ways during your adult life. We can choose not to become anxious today, right now by making this pledge: I will never become anxious again.
He says, a€?Me too.a€? I tell him sharing the a€?photo of the daya€? with friends and family adds to my feeling of connectedness.
Their body languages are telling their stories, which cannot be heard atop the arena because of the high-energy music that fills the air around and above both worlds.
They brought opportunity for change and I had the courage to embrace them, sometimes with eagerness and sometimes with trembling. Professor, Public Policy, MVSU; Dr Alpha Diarra, National Cotton Spokesman of Mali, West Africa. The animals seem quiet for the most part from this distance and some of the people are petting them, grooming them, leading them, and seeing that they are made ready for the big center circle when ita€™s time for their performance on the bright side of the curtain.
Replace the word anxiety with any negative emotion or behavior as a plan for true success in life.
Now and then a doga€™s happy bark floats upward and is heard even at this distance high above them. Without force, without frustration the stone art was taking a shape that was pleasing to my eyes.
Sometimes a sharp call or a loud giggle floats upward and fades before crossing the barrier of the curtain. Kairos moments are a string of moments that possess possibilitya€”clarity brought on often by pain, uncertainty or crisis.
Local storyteller Helen Sims will pay tribute to “the Spirit of Mama Lula.” Hollandale folk artist Dorothy Hoskins will showcase recent multi-media work on Cotton Pickin’ and Sharecropping in the American South.
The University is driven by its commitment to excellence in teaching, learning, service, and research--a commitment resulting in a learner-centered environment that prepares critical thinkers, exceptional communicators, and service-oriented, engaged, and productive citizens. MVSU is fundamentally committed to positively affecting the quality of life and creating extraordinary educational opportunities for the Mississippi Delta and beyond. KHAFRE, Inc. Honoring the legacy of  “grandmamma-nem” in a university setting gives artistic and academic license to the pursuit of gaining more scholarship and international acceptance, of the contributions and sweat equity made by the people who picked cotton throughout the American South,” said Professor C.Sade Turnipseed, Executive Director of Khafre, Inc.
As part of Khafre, Inc’s historic preservation efforts, a permanent marker will be placed on the MVSU campus in honor of cotton pickers from the Mississippi Delta, and those who worked the repurposed cotton plantation for higher learning, MVSU.The Symposium is free admission.
Khafre, Inc is all about building monumental programs that allow reflection, reconnection, and renewal. This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilt Narratives” will stimulate a day of discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values.
The agency and resistance of these narratives will also reflect on the subtle and continuing impact of cotton on life in the Delta and throughout the South. The one-day event concludes with a good old fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball and Ancestral Celebration” at da’ House of Khafre located at 300 Main St.

Over two hundred years ago, the Akan Nation (West Africa) established the Adinkra Symbols to visually communicate a system of living for African people to observe and learn. Amazingly, just as with other inspired and spiritual writings, drawings, etc., the symbols are beautiful design concepts with meanings still relevant today. They bring clarity and resolve to the question, “What do we (the village) have to do to show support and love for each other and ultimately save ourselves and one another?” The experiences of today’s youth culture demonstrate a fundamental disconnect, to most people of previous generations.
The young writers selected for this publication masterfully describe the challenge in dealing with today’s world. Because, it offers tribute to the “original” mother and her instinctual knowing of the spiritual paths that her children (all children) must take to find their way out of harm's way. Revealed, in this collection of writings are a wonderful array of short stories, poems and proverbs that present a familial insight born by the great liberator of liberators, Harriet Tubman!

Born in a cabin on a cotton plantation outside Berclair, Mississippi in 1925, his entire life, much like the lives of so many others from the Mississippi Delta, was spent in service to others.
Unfortunately, for most of his contemporaries (colleagues, family of friends) they never received the accolades, appreciation, or respect for their life-long work as cotton-pickers in the American South. David Matthews, MS Congressman Bennie Thompson, MS Senator Thad Cochran, National Parks Director Dr Jon Jarvis, Mr. Theodore Turnipseed, Sr., and millions of others understand the importance of sharing, and erecting a statue and National Park dedicated to the countless field workers of the American South.
Though unrecognized and unappreciated, these people worked from sun up to sun down tilling, planting, chopping, picking and spinning cotton, in the blazing hot sun … This and many other horrifying conditions of the historic Mississippi Delta evoked the music we call “the Blues.”On May 21, 2014, during the last year of his life Mr. King accepted our call to become the “Honorary Chair” of Khafre, Inc, a Mississippi-based 501(3) not-for-profit organization.
Maya Angelou as the Honorary Chair of the Cotton Pickers of America and the Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project. The plan is to build a thirty-foot high monument on twenty acres of cotton land along Highway 61, just outside the historic Black town Mound Bayou, MS. This is a historically rare opportunity to transform many lives in the Delta and engage conversations about race and social inequities in America. Sade Turnipseed is the Executive Director of Khafre, Inc and teaches American History at Mississippi Valley State University, in Itta Bena, the birthplace of Mr.
This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilts Narratives” will stimulate a day of discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values.
No one has ever “officially” said “thank you” to the people in the American South, who literally tilled the way to the economic greatness for many countries and regions around the world. Somewhere along the way the respect and honor for their hard-earned sweat-equity investment in the wealth of others was lost and buried in the bloodstained, tear-soaked soils of the American South. Something “monumental,” needs to happen…like a National Park named the “Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center” along the Blues Highway 61. Once the Monument is installed, the organizers’ plan is to turn it over to the federal government for the protection and honor that only this country can provide. It shall serve as a permanent reminder and ever-present sign of respect for those whose hope for a brighter day wore thin, while working from kin to kain’t (can’t see in the morning to can’t see at night).The world must be reminded of the work ethic held by the people in the South…in most instances it was an honorable legacy … the tragedy is they were never properly compensated, nor thanked.
King, (aka: The King of the Blues) will join the effort to build a National Monument in the Mississippi Delta. King understands, as do all members of the Khafre, Inc family, that a healing will come through recognition and a true recounting of the history of cotton and its impact in the South.In September, 2009, Khafre, Inc, based in Indianola, Mississippi, embarked upon a journey designed to thank the sons and daughters of the South who helped, albeit it without accolades, fanfare, or even recognition, build the cotton empire that fueled the American economy for nearly two centuries. The impetus for the project: Cotton Pickers of America and Sharecroppers Interpretative Center (hereafter referred to as the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex) is the need to thank those who toiled in the Delta soil for generations without the pay, appreciation, or the dignity they deserved. The Cotton Pickers Monument Complex would not only help heal wounds that have festered for decades, but would also help to empower the generations of family members who have been negatively impacted by this unfortunate era in American history. This is truly a historic endeavor that has the rare opportunity of actually transforming lives, communities, and the conversations about race in America and throughout the world.           These deeply held convictions of education and empowerment are keys to improving the quality of life for all within the Delta.
They have helped to catapult Khafre into numerous projects, which are all connected to the vision and mission of this value-driven and movement-oriented organization that is designed to provide historical, health related, and cultural education and outreach to the communities of the Mississippi Delta.
Khafre has already helped young people successfully publish literature, prepare for careers in the television and radio broadcast industry, produce staged events and engage in healthy behaviors through diet and exercise, all with the assistance of grant dollars and strategic partnerships.The crowning work of Khafre remains the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex, a dream, which is coming closer to fruition, day by day, because of the unprecedented support of Mr. We have also received Congressional acknowledgment and endorsement from United States Congressmen, Bennie Thompson and Danny Davis, official endorsements from United States Senators, Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, and expressed support from Dr John Jarvis, National Parks Director.
Carroll Van West and Rebecca Conard from Middle Tennessee State University’s History Department, along with the ongoing partnership with Mississippi Valley State University, has proven a significant benefit to our overall project.
We are now ready to raise the $26 million dollars to make the Cotton Pickers Monument complex a reality. We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming your partnership in the building of this long overdue and much needed monument.It is time!Most sincerely,C.
The goal is to obtain as much first-hand information as possible relating to the development of America’s Cotton Kingdom (aka the Delta).In the aftermaths of completing the academic study for a Doctorate in Public History at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Professor C. Turnipseed’s theory that perceptions of sharecropping, tenant farming, etc, will be altered in ways that are beneficial to the legacy of the American South when the memory of elders are shared.
The monument site is envisioned to become a National Park; and thereby “the place” for memory and community sharing in the Mississippi Delta, for educational, economic development, and international tourism purposes. King and former honorary chair Dr Maya Angelou who are determined to improve the legacy and social-economic status of Mississippi Delta residents. The purpose of the organization is to provide educational, lifestyle and cultural programs, build monuments and memorials to honor, celebrate, and recognize the rich and complex history of the Mississippi Delta and to positively impact the quality of life of those living in the Delta, especially the disproportionately poor African American community. There is no documented official acknowledgment of the people who tilled the path to America’s greatness. Somewhere along the way buried in the tear-soaked soils of the American South, the respect and honor for their hard-earned investment was lost.
The Cotton Pickers of America Monument, Sharecroppers Interpretive Center, and Cotton Kingdom Trail make the case for building a National Park that offers a small token of appreciation for their tireless uncompensated work.

Turnipseed is the recipient of several community service and arts advocacy awards, and she was an independent candidate for mayor of the city of Indianola in 2013. For the past eight years Turnipseed was the host of “Delta Renaissance,” a cultural arts talk show focusing on the arts, education, and political issues in the Mississippi Delta. Winter Building Wednesday, June 18: Former Secretary of State Dick Molpus talks about his experience during the Philadelphia civil rights murders of 1964.

I whole-heartedly agree with the editor that the African American community has proven to the world an uncanny, though unreciprocated, ability to be forgiving of past deeds of injustice, brutality and cruelty at the voting polls, and socially in their community service groups, churches and everyday lives.
This point should not be lost on the fact that many of those injustices happened here, in Indianola, Mississippi, to some amazingly strong and resilient individuals like Fannie Lou Hamer and all those who came before her. But, I can’t help but wonder why the White community isn’t reciprocating and showing the same confidence and trust in racial relations?As Smith indicates, the incumbent received “between 32 and 37% of the votes in the three wards with large Black majorities, despite going up against two black opponents, with strong followings.
That’s impressive for a white candidate in a city and region with a history of racially divided politics.” I agree. When we examine the voter polls in the wards that are predominately African American, reflected is a general evenness for all candidates, be they Black or White.
The same, however, cannot be said about the two wards that reflect the primarily White community. I submit to you the following:In wards I, and II, which are the two wards with the largest white population of voters, we see results that reflect an uncompromising resistance to acceptance and change. With an overall total of 952 votes cast: 732 went to the White candidate and 220 for the two Blacks, combined)…check that!
Surely, it cannot be left up to one segment of the community, and not the other.I truly wish Smith had stressed this very critical point, instead of throwing shade on the outcome of a campaign I have yet to wage. And for the record, as a citizen, it is my right to be afforded the opportunity to run a fair and unbiased race for mayor, without subtle suggestions that it is a waste of my time, as inferred in his editorial.
But, then again maybe he knows more than I about how citizens of wards I and II will ultimately vote. And to also trust that the leaders of this community will look out for their best interest, politically, economically and socially.
After all we live in a community that is 84% African American with a poverty rate that is fast approaching 40% and a public school system that is in deplorable condition, both physically and academically, even under the watchful eye of the government, yet there is no outrage…from either the White side, or the Black side of town. And, I have never believed it was necessary to wait until political season to demonstrate my commitment to the people in my community. If, by chance I am truly embraced by all members of all wards of this city, I believe people will witness an amazing transformation in a relatively short period of time.
It’s “almost” like magic…I predict things will begin to unfold in a substantive way like the neighborhoods will brighten, crime decreases and the impoverished mindset disappears. And I am passionate enough to find the tools to help remedy the concerns that create stagnation and distrust. Please remember, we are a people who come from a very long tradition of women who made a way out of no way.My overall ambition and hope for this city is to develop a strategic plan that enables a steady stream of culturally enriched projects that insures economic development for the future growth and safety in this city.
So programs that not only engage everyone, but present real opportunities for career enhancements and social activities are critical. King Museum that I visualized and administered) Thanks Carver Randle, Sr for that wonderful quote. I just wish he read my bio, or googled me, before publishing doubts about my abilities for success. For the past three years, I have been sitting relatively quietly completing the doctorate in history. Now, I am ready to shake up this town with some bold ideas and ever increasing standards for excellence. I look forward to being a significant force in this community, by helping the White community too recognize the benefits of building relationships that they can trust in leadership positions.
We MUST work together to improve our community—by encouraging EVERYONE to clean on our streets, bayou, parks, etc. We have some huge unmet challenges here in Indianola, and how YOU decide to vote On December 10, 2013, is vital to our success.
Also, please be sure to come to this year's event in your overalls, or cotton pickin' clothes. The event is the impetus that gave rise to the “Remigration Home from Chicago to Mississippi” cultural movement organized by music promoters Gus Redmond and Robert Terrell. Legendary blues and gospel performers Otis Clay, Syl Johnson and Marshal Thompson (founder and lead singer of the ChiLites); along with promoter Gus Redmond will lead the way back home to Mississippi in an effort to support the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project in the historical Cotton Kingdom AKA the Mississippi Delta.
Though the Ball is a “Black Tie Affair” Overalls or other “cotton pickin” attire are encouraged and expected.“I am so pleased that we have partnered with Khafre to host an event of this magnitude,” said Dr. The discussions and historical presentations will reflect cutting-edge research, innovative practices and foundational values. Additionally, two noted scholars from Mali’s Cotton Manufacturing and Distribution will present via Skype.MVSU participants in the program include Dr.
John Jones, interim provost.As part of the celebration, Khafre plans to erect a permanent marker on the site in honor of cotton pickers from the Mississippi Delta and in commemoration of the significance of this historical event. This will be a day of stimulating discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values.
The two-day event concludes with a good-old-fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball,” on October 18, 2013.
This year Khafre, Inc in conjunction with Mississippi Valley State University shall organize the USA’s premier interdisciplinary professional meeting on cotton, sharecropping, and its cultural significance. The deadline is September 6, 2013.Plan to join us in Itta Bena, Mississippi!This is your chance to catch up with old friends and colleagues at The Valley, make important new contacts, discuss the latest in cultural management, stay current with research findings in the historic preservation field, and connect with people who share your core values. We invite all community-based experts in any field to become a part of the challenge to address issues of: unemployment, entrepreneurship, illiteracy, poor self-esteem, teen pregnancy, obesity, hopelessness, communication skills, journalism and creative writing, etc. Situated on the bayou waterfront at 103 and 105 Main Street, in historic downtown Indianola, da' House is the place where folks come together in the spirit of unity and love for Mississippi Delta culture, particularly its blues, spirituals and teacakes! On the historical Wall of Fame are signatures by musicians from Ghana, Senegal, Nigeria, Norway, Belguim, China, Japan, France, Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire and Mississippi, of course. Beginning Friday, June 1, 2012, at 7 pm, the folks at da' House will be carrying on in grand teacake style, until Sunday June 3rd, around midnight.
Celebrating da love that is shared all around the world for da Delta music, art and culture. The 2nd Anniversary Celebration is dedicated to Deltas own David Honeyboy Edward, David Lee Durham, David Thompson and Mississippi Slim. These legendary bluesmen have recently joined the ancestors and will be honored by several local artists and civic leaders: Mickey Rogers, Dr. These artists and many others will perform on da historical Front Porch stage where the legendary bluesman Sam Chatmons music room door is gracefully hinged. The door, the traditional quilts, the African art, the sweet smell of Soul Food and the Delta cotton provide a rural sophistication and ambiance that is reminicient of the culture and folk art once owned and coveted by grandmamma-nem.
Indeed, it is "The home for artful giving, music and songs," as Chicago-based Blues promoter Lynn Orman Weiss described da' House on her most recent visit to the Delta. And, since da' House is located at the epicenter of the Cotton Kingdom, visitors can expect that authentic soothing, and often times healing, Mississippi Delta experience to be dosed up in abundantly royal fashion, every time they come to da' House! Co-owners Robert Terrell and C.Sade Turnipseed extend a personal and heartfelt invitation for everyone to come on out to da House and help celebrate two-years of Delta art, music and culture. She is also the first African-American female president to lead a Mississippi public university. Since assuming her position on January 1, 2009, she has launched The Valley Renaissance, the institutions five-year strategic plan, which is pictorially depicted by the African Adinkra symbol of a Sankofa a bird that flies with his head facingbackwards as he advances forward without getting off track. Grammy-winning blues musician David "Honeyboy" Edwards, believed to be the oldest surviving Delta bluesman and whose roots stretched back to blues legend Robert Johnson, died early Monday, Aug.
Maya Angelou agreed to graciously lend her name to the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project that is in development, in the Mississippi Delta.
C.Sade Turnipseed, Founder of the Monument project and Executive Director of Khafre, Inc, recently made the announcement in a community meeting held at da House of Khafre, in Indianola.
Our teams collective effort honors the sacrifices made by millions of Americans and purposefully gives dignity back to the legacy of those who spent their entire lives working, tirelessly to build this country.Dr. Smith Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University, joins a long and growing list of American citizens, who have also expressed the desire to support this project and demonstrate their respect and gratitude to every man, woman and child that picked cotton and were never thanked, nor properly compensated as enslaved workers or as sharecroppers, throughout the American south.The Khafre, Inc team is composed of a governing Board of Directors, a Steering Committee, a Board of Advisors and several political and community leaders that include faculty members from the History Department at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU). The governing Board selected world-renowned monument designer, Ed Dwight, to develop the thirty-foot statue and sculptural park.
It offers educational workshops, seminars and conferences for the entire community that celebrate Mississippis culture and its contributions to world history, including music, cuisine, writing, andotherartistic expressions. Turnipseed is also the host of Delta Renaissance, the number one cultural arts television talk show in the Delta, which airs weekly on WABG-TV, WABG-Radio and Delta Fox-10 television networks.Plans are also underway to incorporate the completed work into the National Parks Services, to insure prosperity and proper maintenance of the Monument.
