As we pursue knowledge and academic skills our focus will remain on developing Christ-like characteristics. We will encourage our children to develop varied interests and abilities. We will model for them and teach them to have an interest in learning so they will develop self-motivation and the capacity to have vision, to create plans to fulfill the vision and the perseverance to accomplish these plans. We will pray for this vision to include a God-centered, creative vocation. We will teach them and lead them in Christ-like characteristics to empower them to fulfill God’s will for their lives. We will teach them to desire these characteristics and develop them for themselves along with developing an intimate relationship with God.
