"Trust in the Lord with all your heart.
Don't depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take." Proverbs 3:5-6
(From Mrs. Trisha...)
This is my life verse--the one I come back to over and over, especially when I am struggling.
This morning I realized we still have at least 3 more weeks of "online" life. That seems like a lot. It's a little discouraging. But I KNOW I can trust God today, and not try to figure everything out on my own. I know if I seek HIM and HIS WILL, He will take care of the rest. Today I'm standing on the hope I have in Jesus. When I choose to trust Him, I'm not afraid.
Remember we are praying for you and we love you! Post your name in the comments and I will pray for you specifically today!
I almost forgot to post this!
Communion Bread Recipe
1 1/2 cups flour
1/8 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon honey (optional)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 425. Combine ingredients until just mixed. Don't overmix or it will be tough! Roll very thin on a piece of parchment, as with pie crust. (I put a piece of parchment on top to make it easy to roll.) Cut into squares and poke holes in dough. Transfer dough on parchment onto cookie sheet. Bake for about 8 minutes, until pieces are light golden brown.
[04/09/20] Are y’all ready? Mr. Ben and Mrs. Trisha will check in on Facebook Live today at 4:00! We’ll see you then!
Hey Unlock Tribe! We sure are missing you! Just want you all to know you are in our constant prayers. What can we pray for you specifically this week?

Try to understand other people. Forgive each other.

Need your opinion, Unlock parents! If we brought in an expert to speak to us about parenting, would you prefer a Saturday morning? afternoon? evening? event or a Sunday afternoon or evening? We (Ben and Trisha) need encouragement and wisdom, and we think it would be fun to try to bring in someone who could help ALL of us! This would be in the spring sometime!
So, parents, if you think you'd like this, comment:
[09/21/19] Just thought you all would like to know that our Fun Academy kids demonstrated great progress this summer! 93% made progress in reading, and overall they averaged a half year of progress! Parents, it's worth getting your kids to Fun Academy in the summer!

Dear Op Camp family:
Days like today are horrifying. I find myself almost holding my breath waiting to know that each of you is safe. We are praying for each of you tonight. When something like this happens, we want you to know God is good. He loves you. You can trust Him. If ever you are the person in immediate danger, call on Jesus. Let Him help you.
We are praying for God’s peace to fill each of your homes tonight. Please let us know how we can help!
Mrs. Trisha & Mr. Ben
