We’ve received emails from the school notifying us of covid cases at school, on the bus. So far, we've dodged the bullet, but it feels like online learning is inevitable if it isn’t already a reality. 

So how can we maximize our time at home to help our kids “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…” (2 Peter 3:18a). We don’t have it all figured out, but here are some of our tips and practical suggestions:

  1. Take a deep breath as you walk by faith
  2. Start by modelling your own Christ-centeredness (Read your Bible, pray and worship God)

…To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18b)
