Christmas Grief

by Mischa McCray Christmas is perhaps the most hyped time of the year. How many holidays get a solid 2 months of "preparation" for one single day? You could have started buying Christmas decorations in Walmart in October! But as we continue to march on towards Christmas, I wanted to take a quick second to remind you that for many people, this is actually the hardest time ...

Sex, Self, and the Reformation

by Mischa McCray I've been working with students at French Camp Academy for the past 9 months, and I've had the opportunity to walk with several individual students through some difficult things. One student in particular has been struggling with feelings of same-sex attraction. The staff at FCA work hard to expose their students to a biblical worldview on all matters, so...

Finding Contentment

by Mischa McCray Have you ever been around a person who seems to find something to complain about regardless of the situation? They could be at the highest rated restaurant in town, but there's a problem with the service or the food. There always seems to be an issue with their house, or their job, or their family, or maybe all of them. No matter their circumstances, they...

Overwhelming Emotions

Today in my Algebra 1 class, I got so frustrated with a student who is a habitual behavior problem in my class. Every day I have to tell this student to stop talking to his friends, to start doing his work, and to stop turning around (he sits in the front of the class). It's the turning around that really gets me. I'll just stop teaching and stare at him, waiting for him t...

Hope

Similar to many of you, I've been thinking about the shootings that have occurred the past week in Baton Rouge, Minnesota, and Dallas. You can't look at Facebook or Twitter without coming across someone's opinions about these shootings, as there seems to be a variety of stances that people have about them. People are outraged at the injustices that have happened, and with ...

Being Thankful

I figured since it was Thanksgiving that it would be appropriate to write a blog post about being thankful. One thing that I've realized over the past week has been how the attitudes of those around me affect my own, particularly with thankfulness. I've found that when I surround myself with those who are grateful for the things that they have, I become more aware of how m...

Priorities

As many of you know, I originally moved to the Delta in 2009 as a part of the Teach for America program. Being a socially-conscious, recent college grad, I wanted to help young people who hadn't been given the same opportunities as I had. Having gone to a Christian school and college, TFA was my first venture into the secular world of education. While I was enthused by the...

Alaska Trip

As some of you may know, Derek Hinckley and I recently drove all the way from Fairbanks, Alaska to Greenwood. We left Fairbanks on June 29th and drove until July 3rd, stopping pretty much only for gas, food, bathroom breaks, and sleep. On the way, we traveled through Alaska, the Yukon Territory, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Mis...

Depression

Depression is a very common battle that people face through their lives. Often times we try to find a reason for depression. For example, we see someone experience a loss of a loved one and correlate their depression to that loss. While depression can be onset by a loss or some other circumstance, there are other times when depression seems to hit someone out of nowhere. B...
