The first week of classes is in the books and it was sweet! We built pyramids, welcomed preschoolers to the family for the first time and enjoyed jumping into a new year of studies.

Our students blessed us with delicious treats from Brick House Coffee Bar & Eatery, Scooter's Coffee and Bona Fide Bakery & Café.

Even our teachers lived out the mission statement of lifelong learning by participating in a safety training this weekend and have already begun implementing changes based on the training.

Our mission is to equip and encourage lifelong learners for the purpose of knowing, loving, and serving God.

As a new school year gets under way, there's always a temptation to direct the bulk of my energy on the kind of academic instruction that will most likely benefit our children's earthly futures.
.
.
How often have you heard this reasoning?
.
.
Gotta study hard.
.
.
Why?
.
.
So you can go to college.
.
.
Why?
.
.
So you can get a job.
.
.
Why?
.
.
So you can make lots of money.
.
.
Why?
.
.
Because man's chief end is to glorify himself and enjoy himself forever.
.
.
Wait. What?
.
.
We know better than to say the last part out loud, yet so often, we continue to follow a pattern of education that is built upon an eternally dangerous premise.
.
.
Scripture states that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7) There is no wisdom apart from God. There is no wealth apart from God. There is no future apart from God.
.
.
And so it stands to reason, that in all our learning, there is nothing so important as studying the Scriptures, which have the power to make us wise unto salvation (2 Timothy 3:15).
.
.
That, in turn, creates the desire to work and study, not for our own proft or pleasure, but heartily as unto the LORD (Colossians 3:23), which fulfills the purpose for which we were created, "To glorify God and enjoy Him forever."
.
.
"...His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue." 2 Peter 1:3
.
.
(I had every intention of attaching a book review to this, but it got too long for IG's standards. Part 2 another time. Any guesses which book it might be?)

We've spent all week preparing lessons, having one-on-one meetings with students and parents, organizing supplies & getting things ready for classes to start soon.

We LOVE serving the families in our community. We do this because it is exactly where God has us and we wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

When we see that someone (not one of our families) has purchased something on our Amazon list, that lets us do the work before us without worrying about the details. When we get donations dropped off, we do a little happy dance inside. It means that someone sees value in what we're doing. For that, we are thankful. Our students and families are also thankful.

You. Are. Amazing. THANK YOU for partnering with us in serving the kids and teens in our community. Thank you for seeing that ultimately we all benefit from this little project that God put on our hearts.

Side note: the image below is the sign for "thank you." Sign Language has always been one of our most popular classes. We currently have three kids signing classes and, by popular demand, an adult class is in the works. Stay tuned.
