Freshwater Academy

Fresh Water Academy was founded in 2010. It is home to four lovely young ladies of learning and their dedicated teachers. Located in the wilds of Wyoming, the name Fresh Water Academy was chosen as a Western analogy to Christ. Just as He is the Living Water, and we must have Him to have eternal life, any desert dweller knows the importance of fresh water to life, both for self, and the nourishment of crops or livestock. By taking nourishment in God and His word, we strengthen our own relationship with Him, our faith, and the quality and abundance of our fruitfulness.

Our keystone verse is from Jeremiah, Chapter 17, Verse 8: "For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."

The fruit that we speak of is mentioned in Galatians 5:22
"22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

And the heat could be anything we experience that might test our faith in God; trials and tribulations, relationships, anything that focuses our love and attention anywhere but on Him...

Songs to Share

I heard some songs this morning that I actually listen to quite often, and it just really felt important to share them. I have a playlist called "Strength", and I go there whenever I need some encouragement, hope, rest, or just strength. It's basically my Bible in song form, because most of these are written from scripture and how God has helped people through times when they've been down or discouraged.

The funny thing about today is that I wasn't even listening to that playlist, I was listening to my exercise playlist, which seems to have a lot of the same music (guess it helps me gather strength in more than one way). Anyway, I really wanted to share, so have a listen!

Hello Charcoal Toothpaste Product Review

I received a free sample to review this product.  And my family was waiting to try it! 
Seriously, I love this stuff, so clean my teeth squeak! It tastes great. 
The appearance is a little strange at first, and my husband laughed at my 
funny colored foaming mouth, but it works so well!
 
I've had this product for almost a month, and this tiny little sample tube 
is still going strong. It only takes a bit, and I'm not kidding about the 
"squeaky clean".

Strength

K-LOVE - Matt Redman "You Never Let Go" LIVE

Whenever I think my fear is too great and it's sucking me under, God sends a song like this with a testimony like the one Matt shared at the concert we attended a few years ago, and I can draw strength and comfort from fellowship in God's word with other believers.
