HomeSchooling at Wookeys.

Hey all!

Today was truly beautiful in every way. God is simply awesome... I don’t honestly have words that do justice - but it had His fingerprints all over it... peace, joy, kindness...

We will be returning every other Monday - and playing BINGO the second Monday. I will put it on our upcoming events on the sidebar - but for now the next dates:

Feb 11 @ 2:00 for BINGO
Feb 17 @ 9:30 for School

Thanks everyone for playing along on this little adventure we call life.

Our bible verse this week : Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and all your mind.

He won’t disappoint!

And a few pics :) (We were working with some big numbers today!)

2019 Year End Report and Pics!

I think it’s quite appropriate and a little funny that our bible verse this week is :

Matthew 22:21 - Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and give to God what belongs to God.

Just in time for the year end report :). Thank you to all who continue to support the school, not just fiscally but in all ways. I am humbled to be part of this adventure.

And some pics from this morning. After devotions and before work, we went for an amazing little walk because it was so beautiful!




Pics. Wookey’s. Ice Skating.

Hey all!

I have a couple items for you to consider. I was able to talk to Dala today at Wookey’s, and we are going to try something, with your permission - and you can absolutely opt out if you would prefer. This will not affect the school day as far as the current schedule, as we will be able to supply rides for all children who are interested in trying this.

In watching our culture, I continue to see a growing trend of children wanting attention... always :) and older folks wanting to provide that - and yet we separate them and put them in their respective corners... and never shall the two meet. I feel this burden has been put on my heart to at least ask a few questions and hold God’s hand while He works his magic. We are going to try to HomeSchool with a few of the residents at Wookey’s. It sounded like we should be able to come up with enough residents so there would be a 1 to 1 ratio. Bev said she would help with orchestrating. Bev and Susan both offered to help with driving. If…

2019 Christmas Program & Pics

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas break!

Here is the Christmas program along with a few pics. It was such a magical night and God continues to awe me in His ability to work through and for so many people at the same time. I'm very thankful to be part of BCS and the community that continues to grow.

Just a quick note. Hope everyone is enjoying their books! With our early dismissal, I'm going to continue to send home books with children to read during the afternoons after we start back up again. Thanks again for taking on this challenge with me. Blessings to you and yours.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Getting Ready For Christmas!

Today marked a new step in BCS history! The kids sang completely on their own... and I took pictures! They made quite the choir and sang beautifully. Singing with them all these years, I always looked forward to just being able to listen and let them lead... and lead they did! They kept singing songs and picking out more... His light radiated from their voices and smiles and kindness.

Every day has its challenges and mistakes, but His love sure is steady. I’m very thankful for Wookeys giving us this opportunity to spend time with their residents - and the kindness they show us.

Our bible verse this week is John 10:10. The theif’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

It’s an awesome realization to know the one who created us and watches over us is a God of love... and His desire is to bless us with and through His love.

Thanks God!

Looking forward to the program Thursday night. We will have goodies in the entry and the kids will…

Day Lengths and Pics.

Hey all!

Thanks for the flexibility with the days. Since everyone has been able to experience what we do at the school with homeschooling on Fridays, this next part may not seem as crazy.

Over the last couple weeks, we have played around with doing our science/social studies in the morning... not necessitating the afternoon/lunch period. It has worked out well so far. We have one family now homeschooling during the week in conjunction with attending school one day a week.

We had all the parents sign on as homeschool teachers for their children this year for this purpose. The parent's role in a child's education is irreplaceable. I am so thankful to be in a community where so many parents are willing to take on this challenge!

That being said, I  love the opportunity to teach the children about Jesus and watch them enjoy each other's presence. Even with the shortened days, we still have plenty of time to explore freely. So I continue to dance through this life and learn, gr…

Tuesday Blessings.

Between ice skating and visiting Wookey’s, the last couple Tuesdays have made for a great break in routine. We spend so much time learning and growing within the walls of BCS, I love bringing His kingdom new places. No matter where we are, or who we are with - we can always be a light. I pray we represent and bring glory to Jesus through our actions and words. It’s not always easy - but it won’t happen if we don’t practice either... so I’m grateful for these opportunities.

It’s been my privilege to watch the students grow in their conviction this year. It’s a beautiful piece to the puzzle. I know, visiting with all the parents, there have been challenges for all of us - but there have also been some amazing victories. Thanks for all the parents/families that make BCS possible.

Matthew 12:21 And His name will be the hope of all the world.

Mercy.

We had a pretty nice Halloween at BCS. The kids dressed up, we covered science and social studies from our ice skating day (all about harvest and photosynthesis :), we ate fresh red delicious apples straight from the orchard, donated by Mike Bjerke along with a chocolate chip cookie from Grandma! We also played ‘snap’, watched Pilgrim’s Progress (which was amazing!), and painted pumpkins (thank you Cassie for that donation). Enjoy the pics!

Our bible verse this week is Matthew 9:13 “Now go and learn the meaning of this scripture: ‘I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.’ ”

We are doing day 41 for Homeschool Friday today.

The message in Pilgrim’s Progress echoed the sentiment of our bible verse this week. Our journey with Jesus is not about what you know but WHO you know. We are not Christian because we attend church or go to a ‘Christian’ school or even read the Bible - although all these things can lead us to want to know Him - what makes us a Christian is the mercy and love …
