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...

I've been absolutely struggling to post lately, which I am sure some of you have noticed. It's been a very busy few weeks, and I feel as if I'm behind on everything, from time with my family, to blogging, to reviews, to CafeMom posts...I will tell you, time with my Lord and time with my family come before any of the rest of those, so if I'm not all caught up or on as much for awhile, it's because I'm trying to make sure I get enough time with them. That said, I've prewritten all of my KJVDirectory posts (except for the last two in December) for the rest of the year, so you can be sure to see me there :). I will begin posting regularly again soon!
