Our Cup Overflows


We still marvel when we drop our children (Mary Stewart- 7th grade, Graham- 7th grade, and Ellis- 3rd grade) off at school or attend an event surrounded by the Ben Lippen community. We never thought we would be part of something like Ben Lippen. We struggled with a deep and abiding loyalty to public school and viewed private school as insular and just not for us. God showed us that He had other plans for our family.

Over a year ago, a small voice began speaking to us about Ben Lippen. We experienced a series of seemingly unconnected events. Some were “chance” conversations with people in the Ben Lippen community. Others seemed to be messages tailor-made for us to “open our eyes” to the opportunities that would be afforded our children at Ben Lippen. Over time, the Lord softened our stance and both of us began to seek out more information about Ben Lippen.
