When Hubs and I first entertained the thought of home schooling our children, I wrote out a list of goals. Toward the top of this list was not to just bring them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, but also the ability to know WHY they believe what they believe. ……always be ready to […]

<><><> This post is the “300th Post Special”!!<><><>
My favorite series to read is the Bell Mountain Series by Lee Duigon. I first found out about the Bell Mountain series when I got it as a gift.
There are currently 11 books in the series, with 2 more coming soon!! Here I will introduce you all to the fun and exciting Christian fantasy series: The Bell Mountain Series!!
In the Bell Mountain Series, you will meet two adventurous kids, Jack and Ellayne, living in a village called Ninneburky, who go on a mission given to them by God to ring a mysterious bell which, according to the “Scriptures,” is said to be on top of a high mountain called Bell Mountain. Other fantastic characters include the wise hermit, Obst, who loves God, the powerful man of the woods, Helki the Rod, the brave and fearless hairy little man-like creature named Wytt, the evil First Prester (High Priest) of the Temple, Lord Reesh and his professional assassin, Martis, the ruthless warlord and supreme leader of the Heathen army, The Thunder King… and much much more!!
The first book of the series is called Bell Mountain…
BOOK 1: BELL MOUNTAIN
“Finally… Faithful Fiction that Reveals the Kingdom of God!
Introducing Bell Mountain, by Lee Duigon, the first novel from Chalcedon’s new label, Storehouse Press!
The world is going to end… as soon as Jack and Ellayne ring the bell on top of Bell Mountain. No one has ever climbed the mountain, and no one has ever seen the bell. But the children have a divine calling to carry out the mission, and it sweeps them into high adventure.
For the world is already changing, and fast: legends come to life, strange beasts emerge from the forest, bandits and slave traders hunt the helpless, and war rumbles on the borderlands. The children must make their way through all these perils — not knowing that a professional killer has been sent to stop them.
For there are others who know the secret of the bell… a terrible secret, only hinted at in the sacred writings. But do they understand God’s plan any better than the children?
The world has been shaken to its foundations before. Will this be the final shaking?
Great for young adults.”

Thank you for reading the 300th post!
I am very grateful to Mr. Lee Duigon for teaching me how to play chess! Thanks to Mr. Duigon, I can play chess now! Here is the very first lesson he gave me…
OK–the first thing you have to learn is how to read the board. It’s the same as a checkerboard, but in chess, each square has a name. This is called chess notation.
Set up the board with a white square in the lower right-hand corner. The back row, the row nearest you, is lettered, left to right, “a” through “h”. The a1 square is in your lower left-hand corner, with h1 on the right. These horizontal rows are called “ranks.”
The vertical columns, 1-8, are “files.” Your back row is a1 through h1, if you’re playing White. Black’s back row is a8-h8. You need to learn this simple notation so you can read and replay chess games. That’s Lesson One.
When you’ve mastered the notation, we’ll go on to the next lesson.

(This is a reblog, from Lee Duigon’s blog.)
There is an exciting comment contest held at Lee Duigon’s blog!! Please join in the fun!!! The winner gets an autographed book by award-winning author Lee Duigon himself!!
G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and if I ever knew it’d be so much trouble, running a comment contest, I never would’ve volunteered to do it.
Right–we’re shooting for 47,000 comments, we’ve got 46,335, so that leaves 665 comments left to go. I thought we’d be done by now. I blame Lee. He should’ve listened to me and offered a bicycle as a prize. But no, he has to stick to his autographed books.
And then there’s the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest, I have to come up with Question No. 6. Tomorrow, maybe. My mum says running two contests at the same time is fair dinkum loopy and I never should’ve let him do it–but that’s all “How d’you get to Sydney Opera House? Practice, mate–practice!”
The Rules for this Award:
1. Thank the nominator, and publish a post on your blog about receiving the Blogger Recognition Award. Make sure to provide a link to the nominator’s blog in your post.

How My Blog Started…
‘Twas the year 2018 when, on Lee Duigon’s blog, I saw a funny picture of a madman who thinks he’s Napoleon. I then thought about writing a story about that man. Then Lee Duigon said that I should share the stories on a blog of my own. That’s how my blog started! You can find out more at: https://leeduigon.com/2018/08/31/brown-u-aborts-its-own-study-cause-they-didnt-like-what-they-found/ Lee Duigon was my first viewer and he posted the very first comment on my blog!!
Here are my two tips…
- To make your blog grow, visit and follow others and make friends with them!!
- Check your spam box often to see if some good comments got stuck in there for some reason. Just be careful of real spam comments and spammers.
I hereby nominate…
