The word “calligraphy” comes from the Greek language and means “beautiful handwriting.” It certainly lives up to its name. Calligraphy is more than the basic cursive writing that we all learned in school. Calligraphy is stately, fancy, consistent writing that is almost an art form by itself. We can use calligraphy to produce artful notices on posters, write our favorite Bible verses on parchment papers for framing, or create antique script for nearly anything that bears writing. Calligraphy can be combined with other artistic techniques to create stunning posters, announcements, or plaques.

This is our first year actively utilizing the Keepers of the Faith Curriculum. We are doing the girls and boys in our church home school group. One of the greatest things for us is that we were able to incorporate other church members in the teaching of the curricula. For instance, one of our elder ladies is teaching the hand sewing, our pastor's wife is teaching sign language, a Spanish member is teaching the foreign language, etc. It exposes our children to a variety of leaders within our church, new interests, and utilizes talents of others.
