A Picture Says a Thousand Words

School of Illustration students created some beautiful drawings for the Field-Based SBS on-line course material.

These samples below are aids to understand Figures of Speech. Language and literature is filled with words that paint a picture, and the author's intentions can be better grasped if we can also SEE in our minds what was said.

Example of a Simile from Matthew 7
Litote - "not a little" which means A LOT!
Idiom from Luke 18

Turning 14

Our wonderful Jonathan was born the 18th of March, 1997.  That makes him 14 today!

We see humour and fun and a quick mind in our boy.  He's a natural leader in the making.  He loves the strategy of chess, the tension of a suspense movie, and is the family food connoisseur.  Jonathan is also a loyal friend.

Thank you, God, for placing Jonathan in our family and for the young man he is becoming.
