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...

Crockpot French Toast

I would love to give credit to the original source of this recipe, but that and all of my pictures are locked away in the non compliant computer and I haven't been able to find it again!  I did find this recipe on Pinterest, and it has become a family favorite!   We have had it for breakfast once, but I usually prep it in the morning and plug in the crockpot for an easy supper.

What you will need:
  • Crockpot
  • 1/2 loaf of bread
  • 6eggs
  • 2c. milk
  • 1tsp. cinnamon
  • 1Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1tsp. vanilla

Spray the inside of the crockpot with cooking spray and cut or crumble your loaf of bread into the pot (I double the recipe because I have a large family).   In a bowl, whisk eggs (I use at least a dozen), milk, cinnamon, brown sugar and vanilla.  If you add extra ingredients, you can add them here or chop them up and stir them into the crockpot. 

I usually add cream cheese, syrup, and a Tablespoon of instant coffee.  Sometimes we add fresh or frozen fruit or preserves, and this time we added bacon and ham so it was a meaty french toast.  Experiment with your family's favorite flavors and make your own variety!

Pour the mixture over the bread and stir till all the bread cubes are moistened.  This works with your stale, hard bread also.  Put the lid on the crockpot and cook on low for about 6 hours.  Overnight for a premade breakfast, or all day for a yummy breakfast for supper treat!
