Parents Are Difference-Makers
The purpose of CHA is to assist the home and the church in developing a strong foundation in each child’s life. Parents are the first and primary teachers of their children. Parents also play a valuable role in the life of our school. From volunteering, serving on the board, attending athletic events, reading to their children, and being involved in our parent organizations, parents make a difference. Recently, our Booster Club hosted the Jim Elliot Memorial Basketball Tournament. As a part of the tournament, athletic cleats were collected for kids in need in the Oklahoma City area. Deuteronomy 6:4-9 exhorts parents,
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
Parents are difference-makers in the lives of our children. We are blessed to partner with parents as we fulfill the mission of Christian Heritage Academy. I would like to encourage you to read an excerpt from Mr. Aaron Ferguson’s latest book, The Liberty Pyramid, on the home’s value. I pray that you are inspired.
