“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” –1 Peter 5:7
It is early morning, the sun’s rays just reaching my comfortable chair on the back patio. The busy street behind my house is eerily quiet. I am very still, very aware of the sound of the same bird that sings each morning; aware of dewdrops glistening on the intricate spider web hanging from the Encino Oak tree; aware of the fresh, crisp air that fills my lungs, and the color of the morning sky. Has it ever been that exact shade of blue? I am still. And I know exactly who my God is. “Be still, and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10 (KJV).

Napa Christian Assembles Project-Based Learning Boxes for Students
Students of Napa Christian Campus of Education wrapped up their two week spring break last week. While they didn’t return to their classrooms, their studies are continuing! During spring break, their teachers worked hard to put together projects, materials and website content so they can continue learning in the style they are used to from home. The boxes were modeled similar to food kits—all the supplies and instruction need for the coming weeks of project-based learning.
