Start This Way

Start This Way

 It has been said that if we aim for nothing we will hit it every time.  Life is best when we live life on purpose.  The start of a school year is a great time to establish goals to guide your family.  At Faith Academy, our goal is to experience Prov. 3:5-6 in our everyday lives. 

 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,And He will make your paths straight.” (Prov. 3:5-6, NLT)

 As a school we want to create a culture where God is supreme. Every day, in every way, whatever we are doing we will acknowledge Him.

We instill within our students the “3 R’s”--Reverence. Respect. Responsibility. Reverence means that God is HERE, God is PRESENT (Jn 1:14). Our school, therefore, is holy (special) and must be treated as such.  We can encounter God in our studies, extra-curricular activities, and in our interactions (Matt. 25:40).

When we live this way life becomes one big altar to encounter, experience, and worship God.  Every activity becomes more meaningful when it is redeemed.  Homework, studying, conversations, leisure, athletics all can be acts of worship when we do them for the glory of God.

Let’s cultivate this life-attitude together--“In all your ways acknowledge Him.” Cultivate means to “tend to,” to be intentional. I know we will enjoy the fruit such a commitment will produce in our lives as He directs our paths.  We’re going to have a great year!

Shaping hearts and minds,

Dr. Chris
