Job Skill -- Need Good Grammar!

Sometimes it's hard for people, particularly young folks, to see the big picture or, to use another cliche, to see the light at the end of the tunnel -- people don't always understand why they might need to learn something.  Grammar is everywhere, and good grammar skills are important in many ways we don't always envision.

Yep, this is an embarrassing Oops!  (Thanks, Web English Teacher for the pic.)

Holy Cow! Capitalization Words Referring to the Deity

Just a quick reminder to writers...

Capitalize words referring to the Deity.

     Examples:  God, Jehovah, the Father, the Son, the Messiah, the Almighty, the Lord

Pronouns referring to God (he, him, and, rarely, who, whom, etc.) are often capitalized.

     Faith in God rests on belief in His goodness.
     For He cometh, He cometh to judge the earth.

* Do not capitalize god when referring to the gods of ancient mythology.

     Homer writes about many of the Greek gods and goddesses in The Iliad and The Odyssey.

Happy writing, and let me leave you with food for thought:   "We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master."  ~ Ernest Hemingway
