Note-taking: Writing vs Typing

Typing on laptop

In today's digital age, typing has become an essential skill. Voice dictation tools are built-in with your cell phone. However, can this technology really replace good old-fashioned handwritten notes? What are the benefits of taking notes by hand?

Considerations For Your Next Service Bag

A market with lots of bags for sale

Let Style Meet Functionality

Everyone is unique. We each have our own favorite foods, hobbies, and different styles. This variety makes life interesting and enjoyable! However, when shopping for service clothes or accessories, finding a balance between style and functionality can be a challenge. Maybe you were shopping for boots this winter and found a beautiful pair of brown leather boots, but they have high heels and very little traction on the soles. You love the color, the laces add a nice detail, and the price is right. But, you know the heel is going to be troublesome, especially when it gets icy.

What about your service bag? Finding a functional service bag is important. You want one that can hold your service supplies and suits you.

JW.org Facemasks - Give a Witness Without Saying a Word

IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! IT’S FINALLY HERE! Door-to-door preaching is back, and we cannot be more excited. How have the first few days been for you?.

Prepare your publications, your ministry bag, and don't forget your facemask.

Do you remember when we first started to wear face masks to go anywhere? For many of us, it was a little annoying (and even worse if you have to wear glasses). 

But, that time has passed, and we got used to them. Some people have ended up liking them. 

There are a wide variety of colors and designs that we can choose from, and now that door-to-door preaching has been reactivated, we even have more designs.


So, inspired by that, and at the request of our customers, we now present our JW.org facemasks.


They are great for everyday use for overall protection. And with "JW.org" as part of the design, you can give a witness without saying a word! Choose from black, blue, and ocean or peace scene.  Adults' sizes fit ages 9 and up.

These are not our first facemasks, in fact, we have a selection of them. What we intend with these masks is to protect you and the people around you, while at the same time preaching without even saying a word now that door-to-door preaching is back. People may don't want to hear us, but they'll see us, along with the website address. So we'll never go out without leaving a seed of interest or curiosity in the people.

The Lowly Pencil - Giving it the Credit Its Due!

The lowly pencil doesn’t get the credit it deserves.

Imagine you gave a 6-year-old, a blue ballpoint pen, and notebook at the Kingdom Hall or convention venue. Within a few minutes, they might have more stripes on the back of the seat than a Siberian tiger! (and hopefully not on their face).

Learning to write with pencils and, in particular, old-fashioned wooden pencils (not mechanical pencils) is easier. That's  because of the feedback from the friction with paper... you know... that sweet wooden pencil scrubbing sound... ahh! Furthermore, whereas kids are more likely to damage pens, a wooden pencil is almost non-destructible. In fact..., you can break it in half and make two pencils out of one. So it makes total sense for kids to use pencils.

Peace of Mind: The Importance of Having a Durable Power of Attorney

Around the world, things are going back to the way they were before this pandemic. Many countries are reopening schools, and workers are returning to their workplaces. With many of us leaving our homes, it is very important to be prepared for any event: Is it going to rain? Well, take an umbrella with you. Will you need to take a taxi? Make sure you bring enough money. But what if we have an accident while outside? We have to make sure we carry our durable power of attorney (DPA), as we want to make good use of it.

An advance medical directive is a legal document that puts your medical wishes in writing and allows you to choose someone you trust to make healthcare decisions for you. This document offers peace of mind that, should the unthinkable happen, you’ve made your wishes known, including your personal decisions regarding the use of blood and blood fractions.
