In John 13, after Jesus is finished washing the feet of his disciples, he tells them in verse 16, “Truly, truly, I say to you: a servant is not greater than his master, nor is the messenger greater than the one who sent him.”  As we begin our school year tomorrow, this is a truth from God’s word that I am preaching to my own heart.  Homeschooling is a blessing (an exhausting, sometimes heart-rending blessing) that calls for sacrifice and service.  My constant prayer for Plumfield Academy is one of thanks as well as one that petitions for strength and grace.

Despite my great love for my children, I do not have all that I need to guide them well without the grace of God.  Please pray for us as we begin this school year, that my sons would grow in understanding, wisdom, and character, and that I would grow in perseverance, patience, and joy.
