Student of the Week (2.1)

It’s back!

The beginning of another school year brings the return of my Student of the Week post.  Since I stink at blogging while school is in session, these will probably be the only posts I write, unless of course something crazy ridiculous happens that I feel the need to tell you about.  But these posts are important, because my kids need prayer like nobody’s business (they also need books, which you can help with here, if you feel led).

First up this year is CK.  CK got suspended last week.  Apparently there were some issues with another student last year that bled into this year, and since he has a history of getting in trouble, the administration assumed the worst and gave him a 3 day suspension.  I spent quite a while talking with him about how we have to live with the consequences of our choices and how you can’t control what other people do or say, but you can control your reaction.  He seems like he really wants to be a good student this year, and he’s definitely a bright kid.

Please pray that the Lord would touch his heart and give him supernatural patience and grace with the people around him.  Pray that he would exercise self-control over his temper so that he can be in class instead of suspended.  Pray that he would step up and be the leader I can already see he has the potential to be.

In addition, praise the Lord for KU, a student of mind from last year who seems to have done a 180.  He has gone from a lazy, class-skipper to a star student over the summer and he told me on Friday that his goal is to have a 4.0 this year.  That’s something that is definitely possible for him and it’s super exciting to see him so motivated.
