Investing in the Future

Trinity has been one of the greatest gifts given to us by God. While it has been difficult financially, it has always been worth the small sacrifices we make.

God not only made it abundantly clear He wanted the children we call ours to attend Trinity, but He completely provided the resources to make it happen. Our children had been attending a small Christian school since preK, but the classes were shrinking, and the family budget was getting tighter and tighter, which is certainly a marriage stressor. I decided, without my husband's input, public school would be best, even though our hearts' desire was to continue Christian education.

Trinity has been one of the greatest gifts given to us by God. While it has been difficult financially, it has always been worth the small sacrifices we make.

The Holy Spirit did not allow me peace after having made this decision, and I gave it to The Lord, knowing He created our children, loved them more than we did and knew what was truly best for them. I prayed The Lord would speak to my husband's heart, and I would follow his decision, as he is the head of the home. The very next morning, out of the blue, my husband turned to me and said, "What about sending the children to Trinity?" After telling him my prayer, we both about fell out of our chairs! I did not think Trinity was an option, simply because I did not trust God financially.

Trinity has been one of the greatest gifts given to us by God. While it has been difficult financially, it has always been worth the small sacrifices we make. We bought our now 25 year-old home 6 years ago thinking we would make "necessary" fixes over a couple of years, like buying dining room furniture (we use large metal folding tables for family get togethers!), renovating the basement and kitchen and replacing the back deck. But, having "our" children drenched in the Word of God day after day more than makes up for our lack of furniture, renovations and an improved deck. Additionally, we drive cars that will soon be on their last wheels, being over 11 and 7 years old each. We plan on running them till they can run no more, as long as we can keep the children at TCS! We sometimes long for new cars and home renovations, but we know this is not our true home.

Every parent of a student at Trinity makes sacrifices to send their child to school. They consider their sacrifices worth making, though, for an important reason: every day their student is here, they are brought one step closer to the Lord.

God has also provided in such mighty ways that it enables me to continue to be a stay-at-home mother, a luxury considered by many. Before we were married, my husband and I agreed that we would do whatever necessary to allow me to stay home. I truly love it, especially in the summer. His provisions make it possible for me to be completely available to our family and volunteer at TCS, which I enjoy so very much.

Finally, we rest in the fact that God knows our needs and provides for them in His time. He has blessed us, through Trinity's Financial Aid Committee, with significant assistance for past school years and the upcoming one as well. Sometimes, we think we might crack, but He always comes through.
