If you've been looking for some simple ideas for life and homemaking ... from someone who's been around the block more than once or twice ... look no further. Have no fear, the Original Simple Mom is here! ABOUT THE AUTHOR Deborah Taylor-Hough is the author of a number of books including Frugal Living for Dummies (Wiley), A Twaddle-Free Education (Simple Pleasures Press), and the bestselling Frozen Assets cookbook series (SourceBooks). While starting life as a new wife and then mom to three children, Taylor-Hough wished for a personal mentor. Someone who could take her under their wing and show her the ropes of being a stay-at-home mom, live on a single income, survive in a tough economy, educate her three lively kids, and raise children who grew to be successful adults with character and integrity. Deborah's own mother had experienced several strokes which had left her unavailable to offer generational family advice. Well, that mentor Deborah had hoped and prayed for never appeared. Not to be deterred, Deborah kept plugging away. She also kept notes as she went about her day-to-day life, convinced that someday she may have opportunity to be that mentor to someone else that she'd always longed for in her own life; a friendly guiding hand for someone starting out on a similar life path. Following her husband's diagnosis with a rare degenerative brain disorder, she also learned firsthand about the special challenges of single parenting. Now that all three of her children are grown, Deborah's beginning to see the fruit of her labors over the years; a loving family with kiddos who have grown into fine young adults. She also learned a thing or two about cooking and cleaning along the way.

This book has three interlocking themes. It is concerned first with the advance and subsequent decline of the Wesleyan Methodist efforts in education during the nineteenth century. Secondly, it is about Dr James Harrison Rigg, an irascible and self-opinionated Victorian minister who becamePrincipal of Westminster Methodist Training College and President of the Methodist Conference. He had a dominant influence over his church for many years and dictated its education policy. He also gained the ear of many in government who were formulating educational legislation, and the bookassesses his influence on government ideas. The final and overriding theme of the book is the anti-Catholicism within the Methodist church throughout the nineteenth century, which influenced Wesleyan attitudes towards government education policy in general and towards Anglican `Tractarian' schoolsin particular. The book is invaluable for students of nineteenth century religious history and is worthwhile for others interested in ecclesiastical history.
