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....Keep Reading

You can feel the uncertainty in everyone's eyes, and the sense of insecurity can be felt in what used to be deemed the most stable any level of society, from jobs to churches, even in our schools. The reality of COVID continues to wrap its arms around like an amoeba's pseudopod engulfs its food...
Do I seek satisfaction in who people think that I am? Some may think who we are is synonymous with our occupation. There is a desire to be successful in what one finds themselves doing. But even more than that, there is that innate drive to be better than someone else. The drive to be the best secretary, teacher, mom, interior decorator, doctor, lawyer, electrician, mechanic, welder, nurse… only to gain nods of approval....
Things are changing all around us, the darkness is visible. When I was a kid, and I felt scared or alone, I would shut my eyes to hide from the dark. I would close them tightly as if my closed eyes made the entire world disappear. The problem was, the darkness only enhanced my fears, in fact, it made me feel more anxious and alone. I quickly learned to rely on my imagination...
As it relates to the home, I think perhaps one of the adages that most proves itself prophetic over time is the following ... “Children become like their parents”. As a matter of fact, as the years pass by and I see old faces from the past who I haven’t seen for a long time, that is often a point of emphasis for them ... “You are looking more and more like your dad!” or “Wow, you remind me so much of your father!” Although this truth is not likely going to excite our children while they are young enough to still live at home, it is unlikely a truth that they will be able to avoid. ...
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....Keep Reading
What most of us assumed would go away in a matter of days in China, has become a global pandemic, according to the World Health Organization. The Coronavirus is now headline news on every major network and on social media feeds everywhere. We can’t escape it....Keep Reading
When both of my kids were young, they had no problem expressing what they wanted or needed. My wife and I would’ve sworn they were both extroverts, as they (like millions of other Millennials) let us know if they were hungry, thirsty, in need of a toy, or desiring a friend. Then they became high school students and later, college students. Eventually, the situation chang...Keep Reading
Dear Titan Families, I was recently on a Zoom conference with administrators from all over the world. One of the presenters gave us this quote, and I thought it was so appropriate for the times we are living through. For Tolkien fans this may be familiar since it comes from his writings: "Frodo: I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened. ...Keep Reading
I can remember as if it was yesterday. My former pastor, Dr. Michael Catt, was preaching a message and made a profound statement. The statement was actually a quote that he had heard Jim Cymbala, Pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle, say. It is easier to be TRADITIONAL than it is to be BIBLICAL! As soon as I heard these words, my mind immediately went to a warning that Paul gav...Keep Reading
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...Keep Reading
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...Keep Reading
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. In language arts it begins with teaching the student to read, write and speak so he may know God's Word, share God's truth and discern if what he is reading is aligned with God's teachings....Keep Reading
