Dear Parents,

Thank you for your incredible love, encouragement, and support this school year!

Words cannot properly express our gratitude for all that you have done!
To our eighth graders... God's richest blessings as you begin a new chapter in your academic journey! God has equipped and prepared you to do great things for His Kingdom! Always remember that there is NO impossible with God!

To everyone else... have a great summer. We look forward to everything the Lord has waiting for us when you return on August 30th!

There is NO Impossible With God!

Who knew when last year’s sixth grade class selected the 2020/2021 theme to be “There’s No Impossible With You”, it would become such an appropriate and encouraging battle cry for this school year? Based on the Scripture verse found in Matthew 19:26 "With God, all things are possible", we stood in awe as we watched the Lord work in different, yet powerful, ways this school year, despite a global pandemic!

As I reflect upon this previous school year, I am amazed of how God allowed and provided avenues for us to…

Congratulations Class of 2021!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Throughout my entire life, one thing that I do not enjoy is goodbyes. Being a mom with children who select not to live in Michigan, you think I would become better at this, but I haven’t, and I still cry at every farewell. So, probably one of the most painful tasks for me as a principal is to say goodbye each year to another amazing group of students like the Class of 2021!

A Severe Case of Puppy Love!

“My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.” John 10:27-30

I answered my daughter’s FaceTime call a few weeks ago and was greeted with the opening statement: “I’ve got something to show you and don’t try to change my mind because I’ve already paid for it.”

There's a Nightmare in My Closet!

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2  

It started as a slow methodical drip that only my ears heard as its consistent rhythm would lull me to sleep. Over the course of time, the drip’s speed progressed to the sound of raindrops falling against my shower tile, which finally had Ken’s attention. By the time an available plumber could be located, the once small leak had evolved into a steady stream.

Happy Mother's Day!

One thing that I have learned during my 31 years of being a mom is that one unique gift God has given to mothers is their keen sense of perception and the ability to know when and when not to be concerned.

When my children were younger and lived at home, I could tell by their cries, their body language, or their mannerisms when there was a serious problem. However, I found that as my children have become older and have moved out of state, I usually can tell by the first few words of a phone call or the opening line of a text when a situation is serious.

Meet the Newest Member of Our St. Matthew Family!

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the Heavenly lights."  James 1:9

A pastor in Oklahoma City was delivering a message on the topic of unity to his congregation of approximately 1000 worshippers, some who were there worshipping in-person as well as those who were attending through the church's video streaming service. The pastor was preaching about how easy it is during the 21st century for Christians to live separate lives, and, as a result, fail to see the need to live in unity with others.


“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”  Psalm 23:4

Each year during the month of March, the staff and our middle schoolers have a little friendly competition with our March Madness brackets. Last year, COVID temporarily interrupted this fun and exciting St. Matthew tradition, so it was very enjoyable to have this be one of the numerous slices of normalcy that returned during this school year!
