Foundations & Essentials: September News
Foundations & Essentials Begin!
This monthly newsletter will highlight some of our community's activities and events, and will hopefully be an encouragement to you as you endeavor to classically educate your children at home.
As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Although I will attempt to answer any messages as promptly as possible, please know that I have blocked off Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2 - 4 p.m. for CC related issues, so your calls/texts/messages will be answered no later than at that time.
I am praying for you as you seek to know God and make Him known in your families, in your neighborhoods, and in the world.

The Virtue of Obedience
This week we spoke of obedience, or responding quickly and cheerfully to those in authority ("Okay, whatever you say, I will obey right away."), but what does obedience look like for us as parents? Mystie Winckler at Simply Convivial says that "All of Life Is Repentence." I hope you can take some time to read or listen to this article in her Education Is For Life series.
