God is using project “Remembering 9/11” to inspire us to think and respond to all events in life from His Perspective. We pray He continues to remind the children to replace their fear-based thoughts, emotions and responses about any past, present, or future event with those that are faith-based. May our video also bless you: https://youtu.be/GzyY9H4_vD4

As painful as it is to teach about 9/11 it is a day God uses to inspire us to think and respond to all events in life from His Perspective. This helps children replace their fear-based thoughts, emotions and responses about any past, present, or future event with those that are faith-based.

We pray our video blesses you: https://youtu.be/GzyY9H4_vD4

For those of us old enough to remember, we will never forget where we were when we heard the news about the 2 airplanes used as human missiles that plowed into New York’s Twin Towers. When we studied the crash of the 3rd plane, we praised the Lord to learn the design of the Pentagon saved many lives.

We also celebrated the heroes response on the 4th plane, Flight 93. It was around 9:28 a.m. when terrorists overtook the cockpit, turning it toward Washington DC with the US Capital, or the White House, as their final target. Passengers and crew were forced to the back of the plane and told to be quiet. Using airfones, some were able to report the hijacking and learned about the other hijacked planes. There was no doubt Flight 93 was part of a larger attack on America. This realization led to a collective decision to fight back. Before Todd Beamer ended his call with Airphone Operator, Lisa Jefferson, he asked, “Would you do one last thing for me?”
“Yes. What is it?” she answered.
“Would you pray with me?”

They said the Lord’s Prayer together. Others joined in. Beamer then recited Psalm 23, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for thou art with me.” Immediately after, he turned to his co-conspirators and asked, “Are you guys ready? OK, Let’s Roll.”

The terrorists remained in control of the plane and chose to crash it rather than risk the passengers and crew regaining control of the aircraft. At 10:03 a.m., Flight 93 crashed into an empty Pennsylvania field, only 20 minutes flying-time from Washington DC. We will never forget the unity, courage, and resistance of those who took charge in the face of adversity.

We paused, prayed, and felt God‘s presence as we viewed it all through the lens of Scripture. Because it is through the powerful and ageless Word of God that we find His supernatural lasting hope in midst of every challenge.

We grieve with the families left behind of the 2,977 who died. We will remember with honor the 412 emergency workers who served sacrificially. And we will continue to be inspired by God to look beyond the rubble of our broken lives to see what He wants to redeem.

This year has been DariAnna Weston’s best so far. Her collection produced this year has merited her “Artist of the Year” for creating the Most Outstanding Collection 2020-2021.

DariAnna was born on April 20, 2006. She has 6 siblings, 3 sisters and 3 brothers. She is the second youngest in her family. Her mother has been her greatest inspiration since she was a child. She has attended PCS for 5 years. She enjoys going to a Christian School because she loves the freedom of being able to express her faith in her artwork. Her love for Jesus and people comes out on the canvas even when it’s not expected for the project. Her small circle of godly friends are good influences for her, as she is to all she gets to spend time with.

Master’s Edition Children’s Art Contest is a national contest we participate in each year. DariAnna’s “Sharing the Love of God Around the World" was selected as 1st Place in ages 12-14. She wrote on her entry, “It symbolizes unity and equality in a world without hate and racism, a world where we all worship the Lord. In this painting, we can all come together as a body of Christ and look past all of the politics, color, and hate, and see each other with a brotherly love.”

Judges statements:
”This design is one that I haven't seen since I started painting children. I rarely see it executed as well as this painting. I love the movement of the earth, and the individual shapes and designs for the children. The background blending is excellent. Great use of blues. Wonderful work!" -K. Fincher
"Love the variety of textures and the unique "space" vantage point. Very different and beautiful." -K. Tucker
"Honestly deserving of first place. The way the earth looks like it's rotating, the details of the different cultures in each character, the peaceful colors and composition...wonderful job!" -Abraham Hunter

Sophomore, Jaden Ricketts, spoke about Dari in his end of year Artist Presentation, “DariAnna’s artwork is inspirational to me because she tries to send a message about who God is to her personally. I believe she tries to draw in people with her art so they can get to know Christ and bring joy to their lives.”

Last year Dari and her brother, Darnell, re-enacted a painting of Jesus holding up a doctor for the “Bringing Art To Life” Contest. Mom, DeAnna Weston, was their photographer. They and Dain Stover tied for Most Inspirational in that contest. Dari, her brother, and her mom helped paint “The Music Man” Background Sets a few years ago. Their dream as a family is to one day open a bakery with an art gallery.

Into The Sea (It's Gonna Be Ok) by Tasha Layton and PCS 4th Grade

Celebrating with 4th Grade our last Art Class together as they sing along with Tasha Layton, "Into The Sea (It's Gonna Be Ok).” The former backup singer for Katy Perry wrote the soaring piano ballad with her husband, Keith Everette Smith. Tasha said, “When we entered this writing session, my husband and I were coming out of a season of deep hurt. We had walked through a difficult time in our marriage. And, we wanted to write music that could help people. My husband and I have both passed the point in our lives of just writing any song. We want our music to speak to what people are going through. Music that ministers to them. I have a 2-year-old son, and when he falls and scrapes his knee, or when he is scared, or when he is sad, I take his little face in my hands and I look at him and say, 'You know what buddy, it's gonna be OK,' I wrote this song during a time when I was facing a lot of heartache, worry, and stress. I was crying out to God, just like my little son cries out to me."

Dear Tasha, this video is just a little taste of how God is using your Scripture rich song in the Art Room to inspire us, regardless of age, in deep and meaningful ways. Thanks to you and hubby for reminding us that “it’s gonna be OK!” No matter what, when, or where, our Father is always sovereign and trustworthy. Keep up the great work, dear Sister! 💞

Psalm 46:1-3, “God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam. Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!" (NLT)

All of a sudden these kiddos are in middle school. 🥳 We thank God for being able to be in school during a global pandemic. “We give Him glory.” 🤗

5th Graders, as you transition into Middle School, may you and the rest of us remember to keep 1 Corinthians 10:31 as our Core Rule to test everything, “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.“

Art Draws Out the Heart

The imagination communicating with the hands to create art, is therapeutic. It cannot be denied; it’s a God-thing. God uses our art to make known what is most important to us; what makes us happy; or why we are sad. For the Christian artist, nothing is hidden. We do not give in to people-pleasing, or fear/shame of what our viewers may think or say. We aim to please God. And in the process, as surrendered instruments in His hands, our works of art becomes a platform where God makes Himself, and His will, known. So whether creating art, or “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31)
