Commute Time With Your Kids is More Time With Your Kids

Trinity Christian School of Fairfax has families driving to school from more than 60 zip codes. What do you do when you are commuting from Gainesville, Washington DC, or Stafford? We asked the families with longer commutes to tell us how they use the time. There are students who sleep and students who finish homework. Some read their Bible, listen to worship music, catch up on the news, read a book, or pray. There are those who have the “captive audience” conversations and those who memorize Scripture together. A longer commute does not have to be wearisome. We are honored by these families who travel many miles to attend TCS and in awe of the way they inspire us all to enjoy the time and turn the commute into an asset.

Do you have a great way to use your commute? We’d love to hear about it at
