I have been using your site for the last few years and I think it is great. I sometimes have trouble putting my lessons together and this site has been a great help. Thank you for putting it up. I've been teaching for 39 years and I still need help. Also I love that I can get the KJV lessons which are rare nowadays. Again thank you. Penny, Liberty Baptist church Eadton MA
