If My People.....

Sharon Gilder on August 17, 2018

We are so excited about this new school year.  We have had sinking enrollment numbers for several years and have had to fight discouragement and even some fear that we would not have enough children to be sustainable.  However, we laid it all before the Lord and brought our petitions to Him and our faithful Father has brought us to this good place.  The scriptures tell us in 2 Chronicles 7:14 that God has said, "If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then...

Oh ye of little faith...

Sharon Gilder on February 1, 2018

These words of Jesus come to my mind regularly.  Just like Peter, we have strong faith, until the wind and the waves come and we begin to doubt and become fearful.  That causes us to start sinking.... sinking into hard thoughts of God, questions about our circumstances and whether God is "on top of it".  We feel the need to help God accomplish His purposes although we don't know what those are.  We blunder and sink and fall and nearly drown at times.  Sweet Jesus comes to us faithfully and with compassion.  "Oh ye of little faith, have courage and do...

As we settle into another school year, I thank God for the honor of being a part of His work here at Covenant.  This tiny little school has planted the seeds of the kingdom for over 30 years and if the Lord is willing, we will continue for 30 more.  I grieve that more Yazooans are not able to be a part of our family.  We are not the biggest, we are not the most modern, we are not offering a full gamut of sports and activities, but we are the most wonderful place for children to  begin their education. ...

We need to hold it together.......

Sharon Gilder on April 12, 2017

There are only 20 more school days left so the third grade tells me.  My, how the year has flown!  Things always get a little "wonky" this time of year.  The grass is green, the birds are singing and ball games are in full swing.  We love spring! However, schoolwork begins to suffer during these last weeks.  I know all the reasons why but we all HAVE to carry on until the end.  We still have things to learn and do to complete our year.  It would be a pity to let grades fall because of the last few weeks. ...

The Amazing Power of Prayer

Sharon Gilder on February 6, 2017

I'm really not a movie person so I hardly ever see anything that people are talking about.  Case in point, I just now saw "War Room".  I heard all the buzz about what a great movie it was and how powerful it was to see an entire movie built on the premise of the power of prayer.  I was very impressed with the fact that such a movie made it into the mainstream; but I wondered if all the accolades were deserved, and if this movie truly reflected prayer in a Biblical way.  Well, I learned my lesson!  This movie encouraged my...
