Trash the Past; Focus on the Future

A small metal trash can had been placed at the curb with the garbage to be collected the next morning. It was empty. When I noticed it from my bedroom window I thought it looked familiar; so began the investigation. I retrieved the empty can and returned it to where my memory led. I waited. The 1960's high school shop class was apparently the groovy place to create unique...

Attention Parents: MOMO Challenge

Dear Parents, Recently I was made aware of a phenomenon that has hit social media called the MOMO Challenge. I researched this and can find little confirmation that it is a little more than an urban legend. Almost all sites that discuss it say that they can only confirm that a "friend of a friend" has witnessed the actual events. Fortunately, the team at AXIS (you may r...

Why Is Christian Education Priceless?

Parents who send their children to a Christian school are making an eternal investment in their children's' lives. Often parents will ask, "What is the value of Christian education?" Or, "Why should I send my child to a Christian school which costs thousands of dollars a year?" Below are some reasons I would share with a parent who came to me with these questions. I pray y...

Establishing a Christian Worldview at Home

One of the tenets of Christian schools is developing a Christian worldview in students. In every subject, we strive to show students what a Christian worldview means in that discipline.

What Do I Teach My Child about Bullies?

One of my all-time favorite quotes is, "You must prepare your child for the road, but you can't prepare the road for your child." If you've never heard that before, stop a minute and let it sink in. We all want to keep our children safe; they are precious gifts from God. We can't even begin to consider what we'd do if something were to happen to one of them. But so often a...

Raising Daniels...

Our children are growing up in an increasingly post-Christian and secular society, where the public views people of faith as irrelevant. What does it mean that we live in a secular society, and how should we and our children engage with this secular culture? James K. A. Smith, professor of philosophy at Calvin College, recently gave a fascinating talk on that topic. CLICK...

The Gift of Failure

The Gift of Failure A couple of years ago I was talking with a young college professor who worked mainly with freshmen in college.

This statement 'Finding Time For Your Child When You Have No Time " just can not be true. We all have 24 hours in a day.

After School Care is SO MUCH MORE than Babysitting

After School Care is SO MUCH MORE Than Babysitting When I was growing up, children didn't go to After School Care- just about everyone's mother was a stay-at-home Mom. We simply walked home when school was over, where Mom had our snack waiting for us. A lot has changed since then. Schools aren't built in neighborhoods anymore and traffic has increased so much that walkin...
