Ellen Potter- We’ll Say Good Night Here . . .

Janice Campbell

Hi, I'm Janice Campbell, and I'm glad you're here! My mission is to help other homeschooling moms focus on the things that matter- family, literacy, creativity, growth, and service (and for me, each of those is grounded in the love of the Lord)- rather than being entangled by the mundane. I want to share a vision of the delightful adventure your family can enjoy while homeschooling through high school, and to give you a peek at the opportunities you can explore- entrepreneurship, travel, early college, talent development, and more. I'll also share favorite poems and reviews of good resources, as well as a dollop of opinion on mostly education-related topics. Subscribe to my RSS feed, and join the adventure!

  1. What a lovely tribute to your grandmother. I’m so sorry to hear about her passing, but of course you will see her again and what a reunion you’ll have in heaven! Praying for comfort for you and the rest of her loved ones.

  2. Thank you, Barbara. We are looking forward to one day saying good morning up there. I’m grateful.

    We remember Ellen Potter as a loyal, happy believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. She was a joy to be with, generous and kind, faithful and loving to her Savior and fellow-christians–just good company! God gave her 100 years in this earthly life, and everlasting life in the home He has promised in His Word, the Bible, for all His children. We will see her again shortly, by God`s grace, and we will all be together, forever with our Lord.
    Praise the Lord. Psalm 16:11 “In thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

    Dearest Mama,

    Time to say, “Gone, but not forgotten.” It’s very hard right now, but before long Janni and I will be sharing laughs over memories of the great joy you had for fun.

    I already reminded Janni of my visits and the times she and Donald would be trying to sleep upstairs and you and I would be howling with laughter downstairs.

    Love, Your Daughter, Jolene

    Judy and I will always remember Ellen and Jack as our adopted parents within the assembly. Ellen and Judy were always giggling together. When I was courting Judy, we would frequently go to their house on Friday nights and have popcorn. Ellen and Jack were very nurturing. There came a time when they asked us what our intentions were. I had assumed that Judy and I would be married. Jack asked me, “Well, have you asked her.” It put me under conviction that I should ask her immediately. I proposed to Judy in front of Jack and Ellen and, of course, Judy accepted. Thid is our fondest memory of them. All is well, in the Lord.

  6. I remember that evening, Alan. I know mother and daddy enjoyed your courtship very much–what a blessing that they could share in your lives!

    My memories of Mrs. Potter are still vivid all these years later. I remember the first time I met her. I was scared to death to come inside the house. I had short hair and I wore pants. I was not comfortable in my own skin. But within minutes of this first visit, the fears were relieved by the kindness and gentility of this dear lady. I never again felt uncomfortable. I remember spending time with Mr. Potter asking him a lot of questions about God and His word and how patiently he shared and answered them for me. Being in the Potters house was always a warm and pleasant time. I look forward to the day when we will meet again and have more conversation. Until we meet again ….

    Jancie-
    I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom/grandma. It sounds like she was a real blessing to you and many others. May God bring you comfort, especially on the days when you miss her most.
