Eleven years ago today, while sitting in the scholars residence of the David Library of the American Revolution, I started blogging about matters related to American history, American religion, politics, and academic life. We are still going strong here at The Way of Improvement Leads Home. Not many blogs last this long, so we appreciate all of your support over the years!
Here are some of the year’s highlights:
We will continue to bring you the kind of content you expect from The Way of Improvement Leads Home. Keep reading and spread the word about what we are doing here via social media.
See you in a week and a half:

Many regular readers of The Way of Improvement Leads Home blog know Devon Hearn. She served two years as our intern here at the blog and worked with me as a research assistant covering all kinds of assignments. Her research help on Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump was indispensable. She also carried a lot of the load in helping me put together the program for the 2018 meeting of the Conference on Faith and History. And that is only the beginning!
I am happy to report that last night Devon was honored as a co-winner of the Messiah College History Department’s “Clio Award.” The award is given annually to the most outstanding Messiah College history student. Devon shared the award with another amazing student (and fellow Morris County, New Jerseyan) Sarah Wilson.
And there is even better news! Devon just accepted a history/social studies history position in a Maryland school district.
Devon’s future is bright! She will always be a valued member of The Way of Improvement Leads Home family!
