Parenting in Spite of Fear, Part 2, Lynette Bowman

I actually thought at the time Hannah was so wise leaving Samuel at the temple to grow up serving the Lord. At times of helplessness, I wondered what pastor I could leave him with to raise him. Surely one of them would take him to get past this stage, right? It worked out for Hannah and most assuredly the pastors’ wives were infinitely wiser than I; after all, they all h...

Parenting In Spite Of Fear, Part 1 by Lynette Bowman

Our nation recently celebrated the anniversary of the infamous 9/11 attacks on our country. I was pregnant with our first child. I wondered, “Into what kind world would I bring my child? What would our country be like? Would there be any good? How evil would it become? Would this type of atrocity be commonplace? What if I couldn’t keep him/her safe? What if our country...

Classical & Christian Education: The Difference Through History

We certainly desire the best for our children and we must reason through what ‘best’ looks like; particularly for the development of the whole child. That requires parents to come to terms with their own personal paradigm concerning who and what their child is in their whole person. Does our view of humanity consist of our children simply being a fortuitous assembling ...

Parents, Win, With Love! by Pastor Jason, Headmaster

Our children are born in sin as we were. Thus, they will not naturally honor and obey us as their parents. We must teach and train them to do so by God’s grace, and also teach and train them to love, honor and obey God first; and foremost and to love their neighbor as themselves and to recognize the sin in their hearts and their need of the Savior (Matt. 5-7; Gal. 3:19-...

Like most teenagers, I believed a Christian education wouldn’t serve me well in the real world. I believed attending a small school would make me lost and inept...

History from a Biblical Worldview

Since ancient times, the study of history has primarily been an exercise in reading and writing. This is truer now than ever before. Every year publishers churn out new history books, ranging from well-written but poorly researched popular bestsellers to well-researched but poorly written scholarly histories. If only there were some way to combine the best of both worlds, ...

History from a Biblical Worldview: Looking Back for Looking Ahead

Things sure seem to be taking a turn for the worse. That’s common sentiment for many Americans, and rightfully so. With the fluctuating stock market, frequent political stand-stills, the increasing national deficit, recent struggles with unemployment, and the ever-present threat of terrorism, it is easy to understand the frustration and concern that has developed when co...

A Unique Opportunity

I had not heard of a classical education before but it intrigued me deeply. Terms such as trivium were new. I vaguely recalled its stages from my educational psychology class; however, when my professor taught it, she dismissed it as archaic. I had no idea it was still around, a successful and viable educational methodology, and right under my nose! My husband and I then d...
