There is no doubt that there are many things we do with our children that are so much safer these days; car seats and seatbelts come immediately to mind. But, in our fervent haste to protect our children, it seems like we often go way to far on the emotional side. In protecting their seemingly-fragile psyches, we wrap them in emotional bubble wrap, creating a non-resilient human being who is ill-equipped to face the challenges of this world. We really don't do praise well...but there are ways we can intentionally change this. To read more, click the arrow!

"I have spent the last week in Uganda. I am here now. I think this is somewhere around my tenth trip to Uganda, working for Parental Care Ministries. I don't pretend that I've made any profound or lasting impact during my time here; not humility, false or otherwise; just fact.

Well this is exciting - our first annual Cougar Experience is gearing up to begin! On January 16 GCS will host 6th-12th grade students from other schools so they can get a true taste of what life at Grace is really like. Students will experience academics, student life, meet the incredible faculty at GCS, and end the day with our Neon Pep Rally where sports, drumline, pep squad, drill team and cheerleaders will be highlighted.
