More Than a Test Score.

This post has some serious truth about what some of our kids in schools are going through. She is a teacher, she sees it first hand. I do too. Not to the extreme she may be talking about, but even in this little school, it happens.

Right now, in a class I help out in, a young man  is living as though he is emancipated. It's complicated, and it is sad, and he is struggling. He will be with us an extra semester due to the things that happened in the last two years. I don't know all the details, I don't know what home was like, all I know is there is a young man in need of a father figure that supports, encourages and says, it may be hard, but you are worthy to get it done.  He isn't the first one we have seen in recent years.For a few hours a week he can get those words, he can see someone cares and maybe he will absorb it as truth and step up and have a good life, not one based on lies and excuses.

Please read it, pray for these kids. Thanks.
