What is this new tech-world doing to our brains?!
"[N]euroscience proves what each of these busy people have found: it actually takes less energy to focus intently than to zip from task to task. After an hour of contemplation, or deep reading, a person ends up less tired and less neurochemically depleted, thus more able to tackle mental challenges." A timely challenge from Philip Yancey.
Words of wisdom from out mentor, Susan Wise Bauer!
When we recommend memorization in THE WELL-TRAINED MIND, this is the kind of memorization we have in mind--not meaningless mnemonics and raw repetition, but the repetition of repeated use and the connection of facts together with a whole body of knowledge. Great piece on the difference for your weekend reading.
We are grateful to God for the past 10 years of Veritas, South Carolina. Listen to one of our graduates who received a full ride academic scholarship for university this Fall.
[05/06/17] We are grateful to God for His faithfulness to VCS South Carolina. He has guided us for 10 years and we look forward to many more years of His unmerited blessings.
