The word “Devotions” gets thrown around a lot in Christian circles.
It’s a vague term. People do them, they talk about doing them, but no one seems to explain what they are actually doing. So what defines devotions: what’s involved, and why do they even matter? Read more about Devotions - LC Parent >
This spring our mailbox will spill out the blessings of living inter-generationally.
Rare handwritten envelopes, when opened, announce to us the graduations of nine teenagers. The accompanying photos are of grandsons and great-nieces, cousins' kids and family friends. We know them....and they know us! Read more about Graduation - LC Grandparent >
The emotions that filled my heart on that band trip to New Orleans anchored me. They launched me into the sky as they held my feet on the ground. New Orleans taught me how to live. Read more about Jesus in New Orleans - LC Senior >

I had the fantastic opportunity to talk with a parent today on why we did not give students an award certificate at the end of the year. Every time I have one of these opportunities to chat with a member of our school community, it really gives me a chance to reflect on the practice of our school.

Being a senior is great for so many reasons: you're top of the school, you get to graduate, and you're getting ready to become an adult. But for me, being a senior makes me think about what it took to get me here, to get me through all those years of education and to my senior year. And the one thing I couldn't be more thankful for would be my education here at Lynden Christian Schools. Read more about A Letter to Teachers -- LC Senior >
I am biased: I love Lynden Christian School, but not for the reasons many people do.
The quality of education is great, the campus beautiful, the community supportive, the sports programs always strong, and the mission statement expresses my desires exactly. But my reason for choosing LC is far more selfish. Simply, I want my children to be Christians, to know Christ, to understand and articulate the meaning of salvation. I want them to love the Lord Jesus because I want to spend forever in eternity with them – and I can’t do it alone. Read more about Christian Education - LC Employee/Parent >
Do you feel it? Your mind is scattered.
Have you noticed? It’s only 10 AM and you’re already running late.
Life keeps pushing. It can be relentless. Every week brings mounting responsibilities that turn into heaping routine. Every day starts with the thought of what needs to be done. After a while, even fun is stripped of its joy. Our calendars can’t manage it all. So we look for an answer in the craziness; we look for a pause button. Read more about Refuge -- Local Pastor >
Recently I’ve been thinking about Esther 14:14: “For such a time as this . . .”
This final encouragement from Mordecai encouraged his cousin Esther to act more bravely than she ever had before on behalf of her family.
For you and me, it is a different context, but the message is the same: we can’t wait! We can’t wait for someone to raise our family, we can’t wait to take a stand on moral issues, we can’t wait for someone to educate our children. We have to be bold, and stand for Christ and his message. Read more about Family -- LC Staff Member >
