I came across an article about a man who is an acclaimed Christian apologist who started an orphanage in Maai Mahiu, Kenya. His name is John Njoroge. As I read his story, I realized that his life had intersected with someone whom I greatly admire – Roy Entwistle. Roy and his wife, Judy, lived in … Read More

When my Swedish cousin turned 50, he and his entire family flew to Florida to celebrate his birthday. His wife and children, and his three brothers and their families were all there. I was fortunate to be able to join them at my sister’s beautiful home on the coast. During that time, my cousin Tommy … Read More

Be Still!

February 15, 2019Director's Blog

For a go-getter like me, it is very hard to follow God’s command to “be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). I often find it difficult to stop thinking about everything that is going on around me and to focus on God alone. I must admit that maybe that’s why I find … Read More

Absolute Truth

February 8, 2019Director's Blog

About 18 months ago I asked a high school student to come to my office so that he could clarify some of his comments in the student survey. One in particular stood out to me. He said that he felt some teachers were shying away from the difficult questions in life and were almost apologizing … Read More

Unravelling Ribbons

February 1, 2019Director's Blog

During the month of January, my circle of friends experienced three deaths. One was a teacher who was only 41 years old. He had an undiagnosed heart condition, so he literally was fine one minute and gone the next. He left behind a wife and two small children. The second was a 66 year old mother … Read More

Do you watch the news every day? Follow a blog of current events? How about checking the daily headlines online? I do. Lately, I’ve become a bit more discouraged with what I read.

Recently I was asked to write an article about the state of global education. As part of my research, I came across a 2017 report by World Bank that warned of “a learning crisis” in global education. The report said there are 260 million children who are not enrolled in any form of school, while … Read More

Three Sister Bed

January 11, 2019Director's Blog

In my family there are three sisters. I am the youngest of the lot, with my oldest sister being born 17 years before I came on the scene. At one point in our lives, we talked about joining forces to open a Bed and Breakfast called “The Three Sisters.” We are all very different from … Read More

The Great “I Am”

December 14, 2018Director's Blog

At the secondary Christmas concert, the students sang a song called “Mary, Did You Know?” It’s a song addressed to Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, asking if she really understood that she was to bear the very Son of God. Some of the lyrics read: Mary, did you know that your baby boy would … Read More

Motivation

December 7, 2018Director's Blog

My husband and I were privileged to sing at the Christmas Concert this week as part of the staff choir. Now, that’s not unusual for me, as I have always been part of different choirs. I haven’t had the chance to perform in public lately, but I’ve sung with church and community choirs, and even … Read More
