Monday Memo



What an incredible God we serve! Being rooted in the foundation of God’s great love and His provision is one of the most incredible opportunities we have, to lean in to being the light! Living in and seeing the outcome of His faithfulness at The Academy seems like another precious gift from above. We are beyond grateful to see the works in progress that are guided by God’s wisdom and patience, which we follow with diligence, and we are even more delighted to walk this road together with you, our families, and friends. Joy and peace be with you this day and every day!
