So what should be the name of our homeschool? Should it be of the name of our street, our town, maybe our last name? I didn't want anything too feminine because our homeschool consist of one mom and four boys. LOL!! Here is goes....My hubby and I wanted a strong name. Someone the boys can look up too as a role model...to learn about life as a Christian...etc. I was looking at quotes when I came across; Henry (Harry) Allan Ironside. I love his quote, "Christ is a substitute for everything, but nothing is a substitute for Christ."
We (family) came up with a name and agreed for our homeschool; Ironside Christian Academy. The background of the name comes from the late Dr. H. A. Ironside. He was a man of God, loyal, faith, soul-winning man. When I think of a Christian, he comes to mind. We all strive to be Christ-like and hence, the name for our school: Ironside Christian Academy.
Some of his quotes that I love:
1. "Christ is a substitute for everything,but nothing is a substitute for Christ."
2. "If lips and life do not agree, the testimony will not amount to much."
3. "Faith is to rest, not in the best of God's servants, but in His unchanging Word."
4. "All self-effort is but sinking sand. Christ alone is the Rock of our salvation."
And our school motto comes from him too.."Faith is to rest, not in the best of God's servants, but in His unchanging word." H.A. Ironside. I love the verse Hbr 13:8, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, And to day, And for ever. ---That is an awesome, wonderful statement.
Also, our mascot is "Ironside Knights"~to go with putting on the Armour of God-as well. When you have Jesus, you are FULLY armed & protected!
