Organizing A Choir – 2nd Series of Tips And Thoughts

I realized that the formation of our new choir occurred in spring time and that its first recital, so to speak, happened during the same time and Easter season.  Was it a coincidence or was it really God’s plan? We all know that Easter season usually takes place during spring time as it is correlated with one another since both entail new life. It is during this time of year wherein we start to feel that warm weather and see trees and green grass growing leaves, and flowers  blooming nicely.

A Special Tribute

  As a tribute to my Mom,”Inay Aying” (who was in herself an epitome of an ideal homemaker and an empowered woman in her own right) and to all the women    worldwide, myusefultips.com will reserve the month of March blogging on various tips on certain matters concerning women in general.  There are other complementary reasons: 1.
