Preparing for Exam Season

11 Nov 2021

Does exam time loom before you like a dark cloud, a season of student life when the sun does not shine until you emerge from the other side?  Here is my advice: Don’t study for exams! That is to say, don’t start preparing for exams by diving right into studying. Cramming doesn’t work.

Now and Not Yet: An Easter Reflection

If I am going to be honest, the coming of spring contains something of a paradox for our family’s life on our farm.  The return of the birds, the budding flowers and fruit trees, the leaves on the maples and hackberries and oaks, the bulbous plants and seedlings in the garden, the newborn calves and kids and piglets, the smells of fresh air and the renewal of life, all serve as a seasonal and visceral

The class was organized in such a way that we were able to explore every aspect of Montana history. My own love for the state and interest in its history was reignited as we studied and traveled around Montana. We turned every weekend basketball trip into an opportunity
