Letter From The Director 5/15

Too many sportsThis is the time of year that football is winding down and basketball is starting, one activity after another. Here in Tipton we have such a small school that our children are involved in many different sports and activities such as 4-H and FFA. It has long been thought that the more active a child is in the various activities the less chance she or he will have to get into trouble. I do believe that it is better for a child to be active than not active. I also believe that sometimes we sacrifice quality family time for the sake of the activity.

Trying to find what is best for the child and what is best for the family is a hard balancing act. I tell you all of that just to let you know that we at Tipton Children’s Home are no different than other Christian homes. We are constantly asking ourselves what is best for our children. Of course that will vary from child to child and from one generation to the next.

There is however one constant which hasn’t changed for over two thousand years. Whether you are a family with a lot of activities or a family with few, Jesus Christ should always be at the center. With your support and prayer we will remain always faithful to the Mission of putting HIM first. As always please feel free to call me at 1-580-667-5221 to arrange a visit. I will be glad to come and speak with you or your group personally.
