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...

Frameworking #LIBM409 Reflection 5

I think I am finally figuring this out.  This is kind of an important key:
And it took me a little while to get all the p's and q's.  Unfortunately, that means I already missed a deadline.  I will get this though.  It's time management and looking deeper to figure out where you're going.

Right now I am kind of frustrated with myself.  I could have sworn I'd read every file that was there for this class, but I am just now finding these, and they are all the guidance and help I need to get this project rolling.  I've just cheated myself out of several weeks.  I'm rolling now.

I work in a public library, so a topic that my library needs, I don't know.  However, I do also teach high school students, and there are plenty of things that can be covered there, so I'm going to run with it!

More exciting updates to come, I am sure!
