Strong minds, solid character, and successful education

When the last assignment gets turned in, yearbooks are signed, and the books are closed at the end of Junior High, we wonder where they’ll go. We don’t just cross our fingers, but we pray for them to face the world head on and believe they’re made to be more than conquerors. Even then there’s a tinge of nervousness because we’ve watched them grow step by step and just want to see them be their best.

And then we get that phone call, or see the Facebook post, or run into one of their relatives—and we rejoice—they’re graduating college. Or they’re working toward a solid career. They’re doing well. And that’s when we’re reminded that our method of putting Christian character at the forefront of education is the way to go, because it endures with them for a lifetime.

Proverbs 22:6 directs us to “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” We couldn’t agree more.
