Today, I am giving thanks for my Christian Education.
Growing up, I only ever went to a Christian School, from preschool until I graduated. I attended 3 different Christian schools, and I am so thankful for the opportunities each one brought to me. I made life-long friends at each school – friends I still “see” all the time on Facebook.
But most of all, the entire time, my education was based around the Bible.
I have my children in public school right now, and it really is the hardest thing in the world for me. I hate it. I wish, with all my heart, that I could afford to give my children the education that I received, but I can’t. For one, there aren’t many Christian Schools down here, and with 6 kids, I can’t imagine the cost. I know there’s homeschooling, and we did that for 2 years. I loved every second of it, but it just wasn’t right for the kids. Zander needs social interaction with other students, and Ashley needs to learn from someone other than her mom.
I am so blessed to have had the godly education, the godly teachers, and the godly curriculum I did while growing up. I hated wearing skirts every day, but looking back now, I’m thankful that I had such good schools to go to.
What are you thankful for today?
