This year I started teaching at Creek Street Christian College, Bendigo. It wasn’t difficult finding my way around; I used to attend the school when I was a student. A few of my past teachers are now my present-day colleagues! Our school holds weekly chapel services where a staff member will open the scriptures with us. I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to share my hope in Jesus with our students in chapel. I recently gave a talk about building our lives on a firm foundation. I shared from Matthew 7:24-27 about whether we are building our lives on Jesus and finding our joy in him. This video was an introduction to that message where I challenged my daughter to a game of Lockdown Jenga. Will the foundations hold?
