A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of Extended Educational Programs

Every year I start Spring Break with a large to-do list in hopes of accomplishing all the items that get pushed aside throughout the year. While these items have their importance, the time with my family far surpasses these tasks. This year, I am putting family and prayer time at the top of the list. I encourage you as students, faculty, staff, and families to enjoy this gift of time. Let go of the ‘to do’, and spend precious, uninterrupted time with loved ones and our Almighty Father. Blessings for a Spring Break filled with laughter, love, and loads of fun!

Living Under Discipline – A Devotional from PJ Wehry

In Ezekiel, God promises to destroy Israel for their idol worship in no uncertain terms. It’s scary, this picture of a vengeful God, but He also promises to keep and protect a remnant. Why does this happen? “They will loathe themselves for the evil they have done and for all their detestable practices. And they will know that I am the Lord; I did not threaten in vain to bring this calamity on them.” The first obvious application is, God does what he promises. He’s not someone to trifle with. There’s also a second application that is important for us to remember as we meditate on the sin that brought Christ to the cross. This application is further explained in Hebrews 12. “Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?” God disciplines us because we are his children. As you walk through the hard times in your life, see the hand of God shaping and molding you and know that He is the Lord.
