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...

The Bunkalo and Other Elusive Mammals

A Bunkalo, you say?  Just what is a Bunkalo anyway?  Turns out, he's a tiny beanie stuffed buffalo, that is thrown at you when you yell "Bunko"!

Tuesday, January 24, 2012 was Family Night at the Natrona County Public Library.  Festivities commenced at 6:30 PM, and were kicked off with pizza, soda, and tables of Bunko players.  I had never played Bunko before in my life, had barely even heard the name, but it was easy to pick up, and we had a ball!

The Natrona County Public Library always has fun activities for kids, teens, and adults, but this is the first family night we've been to.  Definitely worth repeating!
