Community Bible Study in Palm Desert

The coordinator of this bible study contacted me because she was told that homeschoolers might want to join them! She asked if I could pass along the invitation to my readers and I told her that I’d love to!

The class starts on September 26, so be sure to call or email about signing up ASAP!

The contact is Bina Isaac and you can email her at

June Family Shows at the McCallum in Palm Desert

It’s called “McCallum Theatre Institute’s 2016 Summer Session Festival” and has three shows, June 13, 15, and 17th, 2016. Tickets run from $10 to $15 for each show or $35 for all three. What a great way to start the summer off and introduce the family to the performing arts!

“In 2-1/2 weeks the McCallum Theatre Institute presents 3 unique live shows, allowing our educational partners to cool off at the McCallum with performances that feed the soul and awaken the imagination!

Monday, June 13, 2016 at 3pm – Miwa Matreyek – This is the first time that this LA-based multi-media performance artist has presented her amazing visual art at the McCallum Theatre!!!

Wednesday, June 15, 2016 at 3pm – The Okee Dokee Brothers – A hearty welcome back to the McCallum stage for one of our field trip favourites!

Friday, June 17, 2016 at 3pm – “Walking the Tightrope” returns to the McCallum after a successful Aesthetic Education Program unit-of-study during the 2014-15 school year.

Tickets are very reasonably priced for family and friends to enjoy an afternoon previewing shows that will be featured on the 2016-17 Aesthetic Education Program.

This is also a sensibly priced opportunity for a really fun afternoon of live entertainment for visiting house guests who feel that it is too hot to sit by the pool and there’s “nothing on any of the 150 channels on TV.”

Go to the site and research the performances so that you know what you’re watching and can answer the basic questions your kids will ask. Look into theater etiquette too. It’s a little different than going to the movies! And, of course, there is always the tradition “after show dinner”. Going out to eat, even just for coffee and dessert gives us a chance to talk about what we liked and didn’t like about the performance while it’s still fresh in our minds.
