Learning Real Life Skills

Mrs. Case, my Home Economics teacher, was one of many teachers who made an impact on me. She loved what she did, and she cared about us. Mrs. Case made class fun and interesting and I still use many of the skills I learned from her. 

I was recently reminded of Mrs. Case when I saw some photos of our boys and girls learning life skills.

Roanna Parker, our Life Skills teacher on the Minot campus, recently shared these photos of things our kids made during the sewing and cooking sections of her class.

It encourages me to see our cherished kids learning life skills—skills they will carry with them their entire lives. And, on top of all they learn, our kids experience the love and care of their teachers and staff.

This learning wouldn't be possible it weren’t for you and your faithful support.

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our precious boys and girls. 

Thank you and God bless you!
