Training Student Athletes for the World

I've been a teacher at Ben Lippen School since our daughter Ella (currently a CIU freshman) was in the third grade and our son Cullen (currently a sophomore at BLS) was in kindergarten. I've always felt our elementary students were in a unique position because so many of them participate in sporting or extra-curricular activity in our community - many of these activities are not Christian-based. This allows our students the privilege and responsibility to show Christ, through their words and actions, to their teammates, coaches, referees, and even other parents.

Middle School Gives Back

The eighth grade Middle School Leadership Team (MSLT) is divided into four groups. One of these groups is the “Off-Campus Service Group,” comprised of Amelia Sniffen, Mary Rose Gaines, and Sarah Stevens. The group came up with a number of suggestions for off-campus service projects this semester, including the Baby Bottle Campaign at Daybreak Crisis Pregnancy Center. The group contacted Daybreak to learn more about participating in the campaign.

A Note to a Friend

Romans 15:13 - May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. 

I understand that the situations in your life may sometimes cause you to be overwhelmed. However, I also understand that the enemy would like nothing more than to shift your focus from your Father, to your present situation. Because our ways are not God's ways, and our thoughts are not God's thoughts, it is imperative that you rest in the Word. His Word says that there will be tribulation, but He has overcome the world. His Word also says that ALL things work together for those who love the Lord.

Blessed to Teach Middle School

I have been blessed (or maybe cursed?) with an excellent memory of my own middle school years. I remember the mood swings, the anxiety over trivial things (a new zit? my life is over!), those first crushes, and experiencing the transition from childhood to adulthood. It was the best of times and the worst of times.
