Free Multiplication Lessons that Really Work

I'm on a lot of homeschool message boards and also get lots of email from educational websites and others providing tools for homeschool families.

I love to share the really great resources with others. That's why I created the website for Homeschool Resources Online.

This little gem just showed up in my inbox this morning.

Its a free 26 lesson video course that teaches the multiplication table. Its called The Vaughn Cube for Multiplication.

Here's what one reviewer had to say:

“The Vaughn Cube for Multiplication represents the most significant breakthrough in the history of elementary mathematics education!”                                                              Russel M. Sutton, Division Chief
                                                              Bureau of Teacher Preparation and Certification

I'm a Bestselling Author

This is definitely off-topic, but I just had to share.

I can't tell you how it sounds to me to say, "I'm a bestselling author."

I've been writing for what seems like forever and have sold eBooks online for over 10 years. But until a few weeks ago, I had no books in print.

That all changed with Peering Through the Veil: The Step by Step Guide to Meditation and Inner Peace. The book launched on August 24th and by the 25th had become a bestseller on Amazon in it's category.

If you are feeling stressed, have high blood pressure, get really angry or upset about things, or would love greater clarity or ability to stay mentally focused then meditation is definitely your answer.
