The 17,000 Hour Decision: Why Christian Education Matters

Any education, whether Christian or public, is an investment in time. The precious hours in our children’s lives are limited, so we must make wise decisions about where that time is spent and with whom it is spent. For me, the decision has always been an easy one: I want my children to be surrounded […]

Honor To Whom Honor Is Due

“Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.” – Romans !2:10 There was a sweet spirit in the air on Saturday, March 18, as employees of Dayton Christian School gathered for an Appreciation Banquet to honor employees who are retiring or who have reached milestones in their service at DCS.

Choose Your Words Carefully

A friend of mine gave me some sound advice today. I needed to take my eyes off myself and put them on our Lord. As I did that, I started to see those around me in different light. This friend was applying 2 Corinthians 5:20. “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal […]

Have you ever seen the television show “Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?” I have seen it once or twice, and I think there are some pretty smart fifth graders in the world. As I was thinking about this show one day, I realized that I play that game on a regular basis with […]

New Year’s Resolutions That Matter

I don’t know about you, but the weeks after Christmas and New Year’s tends to be a time of introspection for me. After the excess of the holidays and the busyness of the season, I yearn for simplicity. I want organization. I want, in short, what everyone else wants: a new beginning. That’s why we […]

No Politically Correct Christmas Here

At Dayton Christian School, we don’t have winter break. We enjoy a Christmas vacation. We don’t say “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays,” when we greet each other in the hallways. We say “Merry Christmas.” Yes, We celebrate CHRISTMAS at Dayton Christian School, and I am proud to be a part of a ministry that unabashedly proclaims […]

A Thankful People

As I have walked the halls and classrooms of DC these past few weeks, I have taken note of the Thanksgiving art projects that line the walls and I have talked to the students about thankfulness.

DC: Where People Make All The Difference

If you could have any job at DCS for a day (or even permanently), you’d want to have mine. As the communications manager, I have the best job in the school! (Shh! I try to keep that a secret so I can hang on to this gig for a while…) Most people see me walking […]

Take a Step Back, Mama Bear: Allowing Our Children to Endure Hardships

We do it hundreds of times a day without even knowing it. We do it at the store, we do it when we are watching TV, we do it when we talk to family and friends, and we even do it at church. We tend to look at situations and people through our own particular […]
