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...

HGTV Dream Home

I will admit.  I am caught up in the craze.  It's a yearly thing for me!  I love to look over the pictures, oooh and ahhhh over the rooms and the bathrooms, all the pretty bells and whistles.  Yes, I suppose it is worldly of me, and I get a little crazy sometimes, but I just enjoy it.  The girls and I watch the show where they introduce it, we check out all the rooms online, and I enter everyday!  And then, after a month of oohing and ahhing, we're done for another year :). 

Don't think I don't love the home I have!  I am so blessed to have a roof over my head and shelter for my family.  And not only that, God blessed me with a wonderful husband and son who work tirelessly to improve upon the home that we have and make it even warmer and more comfortable.  I have got it made, and I am so thankful and so happy with what we have!  

I do have to share my obsession with the Dream Home though :).  This is the first year I've seen that it's actually fairly practical and could be lived in...even by a big family ;)

You can enter everyday through February 17th, at HGTV AND  Here are the links!
