CDA Flower Mound - The Davis Family

"Truly, the heart and character of our children is what we are really after. Anyone can eventually learn the subject matter, but rare is the child who has been educated in the presence of God at school and at home.  Rare is the young man or woman who displays the character, wisdom, and passion for the things of God that radiate His glorious light into a dark and dying world."
CDA had a grip on our hearts from the very beginning. We were drawn in by the classical Christian curriculum, but the heart of the school and the precious families we had grown to love have locked us in for good. 
 
      We are now in our twelfth year at CDA.  It has been an incredible experience and an investment we would make ten times over. It has been mostly wonderful and joy-filled, but there have certainly been bumps along the way.  If I could do the younger years over I would have posted Ecclesiastes 7:9 at our kitchen table.  “Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools.“  I would have extended more grace. Most veteran CDA moms I’m sure would agree. We all want grace offered to us generously, but we don’t often extend it properly to our children. Sometimes we are so focused on an assignment that we forget about the heart of our child.  

Some of us tend to crack the school whip too hard. It’s good to be firm, but we should always integrate it with gentleness and grace. We all want to be that perfect mom, but at times she can be downright ugly!  One of my dearest friends has wisely instructed me to bury that perfect mother in the backyard. When she rises from the dead, and SHE WILL, whack her over the head and remind her that God has already covered over all of her imperfections! Now isn’t that great advice for a CDA mom?

    Truly, the heart and character of our children is what we are really after. Anyone can eventually learn the subject matter, but rare is the child who has been educated in the presence of God at school and at home.  Rare is the young man or woman who displays the character, wisdom, and passion for the things of God that radiate His glorious light into a dark and dying world.  Yes, we strive for excellence and we seek to achieve, but we are always keeping in mind what is of upmost importance.  

    We really are a family at CDA, and we do life together. We work best in close connection with other families so jump on in!

Our continual prayer for Coram Deo is that our school would stay true to the original mission and vision God gave us from the beginning.  That with continued humility we would send out bold, ethical, servant-leaders that would have a clear understanding that the gifts they have been given are meant to serve others.
