First Importance

Happy Easter!
He Is Risen!!!! He Is Risen, Indeed!!!!

1 Cor. 1: 3 - 5
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received:
that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures,
that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in
accordance with the Scriptures

Girls Meet God High School Girls Retreat 2011

Faith Academy High School had a girls retreat Wednesday night through early this afternoon.
Mikayla really enjoyed the retreat.
I was blessed to be able to share about relationships with the girls.
I am thankful for these opportunities our kids have to develop their own spiritual relationship with their Saviour Jesus Christ.

Cabins

Ben's class has been reading the book "Sarah, Plain and Tall" and studying about life on the prairie in the 1800's.

One of their class projects was to make a log or stone cabin. Ben had a lot of fun doing this project. He even included an outhouse and a ladder on the roof like they used to put on in case of a chimney fire - it was easier to climb the roof with a ladder on it to put out the fire!

Sarah, Plain and Tall is a tale set in the late 19th century. It is about a widowed midwestern farmer with two children, Anna and Caleb. The farmer advertises for a wife. When Sarah arrives she is homesick for Maine, especially for the ocean which she misses greatly. The children fear that she will not stay, and when she goes off to town alone, young Caleb, whose mother died during childbirth, is stricken with the fear that she has gone for good. But she returns with colored pencils to illustrate for them the beauty of Maine, and to explain that, though she misses her home, "the truth of it is I would miss you more." The tale gently explores themes of abandonment, loss and love.
