Age is a big deal for teens. I get it. I'm turning 40 tomorrow. Age is a big deal for me, too! But, does it have to be? How might you be limiting yourself because of a number? I know the government and other organizations put age limits on things, but is your brain also limiting you? "I'm only 13, I can't be a leader of a club." Remove all self-imposed limitations and you'll be able to do a lot more than you think. Just not drive.

Guest: Dr. Jeremiah Johnston, Dean of Spiritual Development at PCA and Associate Pastor of Apologetics & Cultural Engagement at Prestonwood Baptist Church To learn more about the impact of the Dobbs decision, check out this article from The Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission of the Southern Baptist Commission called “What Christians Should Know About Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.” The Faith Integration Planner is part of the PCA faculty training initiative to train our instructional staff how to integrate their faith and God's Word into their lessons plans from PreK-12th grade and in every subject and activity! Faith training begins in the home. Parents need to lead the way by modeling a vibrant and growing faith setting the example for children to follow. PCA is committed to equipping and empowering parents to live out their dynamic and authentic faith and pass on their legacy of faith from generation to generation! Faith integration is most powerful when all three legs of the proverbial stool - the home, the church, and the school - are working together, creating a synergy of faith and a concert of Christian voices speaking truth and encouragement to students. Dr. Johnston has some recommendations for parents: Listen to and share The Journey podcast each week - share it with other parents at PCA and with parents who don't have kids at PCA - they need to be equipped with the truth as well! Get connected and involved with as many things happening at PCA and the life of your students. Middle School parents especially should be looking to connect with their students during the Pride of Brothers and Society of Sisters opportunities. Also, ask your students about chapel topics, what they learned, and how you as a family can integrate those biblical truths into your family!

When Good Things Become God: Comfort and Security | November 26, 2023Derry Long | Guest Speaker Philippians 4:10-13 (NIV)‘I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content in whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.’ Psalm 23:1 (Message)‘God, my shepherd, I don’t need anything. You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you find me quiet pools to drink from.’ Adventure: An activity with an unknown outcome. Reflection Questions: 1) Are comfort and safety bad? Matthew 8:20, ‘Jesus replied, ‘ ...the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.’ (NIV) 2) What pursuits may require that we sacrifice our comfort and safety? Matthew 10:39, ‘Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.’ (NIV) 3) Do you have a calling that may stretch beyond the borders of your comfort and security? Luke 14: 28,29, ‘Suppose one of you wants to build a tower.

In this week's episode, we had the pleasure of hosting Middle School science teachers, Marisable Soliman and Thomas Howard, who were joined by two students, Anna and Jona. They engaged in a discussion about their recent learning experiences and the integration of students and teachers in mixed-age group science classes this school year. Thomas provided an overview of Unit 1, which comprised six distinct lessons forming the foundation of the learning process. Marisabel highlighted the abundance of hands-on experiences offered to students, allowing them to truly engage with the subject matter. "They had the opportunity to get their hands dirty," she added. The two teachers also shed light on the teaching model employed in mixed-age group classes, which aims to provide students with greater flexibility and motivation in their learning journey. “It's not a traditional model of teaching where” and “It's a very active zone”, said Marisabel. Instead of only lecture-based, students are spread out in the learning areas with more learning options, “we're moving”, added her. Anna, a Grade 7 student, emphasized how her motivation to learn increased when she had the chance to attend classes with Grade 8 students, while also forming new friendships. “We got to focus, we got to get this done. So, then we're on the same page as them, ” said her. In the mixed-age group class, Grade 8 student Jona had the opportunity to assist a student from a lower grade level, an experience that left him feeling fulfilled and more confident in his own learning. Meanwhile, he also emphasized how the two grade levels can facilitate each other's learning, “Some topics we know better because we had that last year a bit. But some topics we weren't so familiar with because we didn't do that in depth. But the seventh graders did. So they can teach us.” If you want to find out more about how Middle School students are adapting to the mixed-age group class at WAB, be sure to listen to this episode.

In this week's episode, we're diving into a different dimension of anxiety, one that might leave you wondering, "Why is this happening?" So far, we've talked extensively about the anxiety that originates in our thoughts, but there's a whole other side to it that's just as important – Amygdala-Based Anxiety.But what exactly is the amygdala, and why is it crucial to understand this aspect of anxiety? Well, the amygdala is a tiny, almond-shaped structure in your brain, and it plays a pivotal role in your body's alarm system. You might recall us discussing the alarm system in previous episodes, and that's because it's essential for our survival.The amygdala's job is to detect danger and alert our body, triggering the fight-or-flight response. It's like a smoke detector in your brain, and sometimes, just like a smoke detector malfunctioning, the amygdala can get a little confused about what's truly a threat.But here's the kicker: sometimes anxiety starts with the amygdala, without any obvious trigger or anxious thoughts. It can be tricky to pinpoint why you're feeling anxious in these situations, which might make you feel like you're going crazy. The reality is, you're not – your brain is doing its job, just a bit too well.Your amygdala creates anxiety responses based on past memories, even if you don't consciously remember those experiences. It associates certain stimuli, like scents, sounds, or sights, with positive or negative events, leading to anxiety or panic responses when encountering them again.For example, if you associate a specific scent with a cherished memory, encountering that scent can make you feel warm and fuzzy. But if that scent is tied to a traumatic event, it can send you into a panic.The amygdala can also create anxiety based on traumatic experiences from early childhood, often before we have conscious memories. So, if you ever find yourself reacting strongly to a situation without any apparent reason, it might be your amygdala-based anxiety kicking in.We've also discussed how stress during pregnancy can affect a baby's brain development. If a pregnant mother experiences stress or trauma, it can influence her baby's brain development, leading to lifelong anxiety responses.Understanding the role of the amygdala in anxiety can be incredibly empowering. It's not about being crazy; it's about your brain doing its job a little too well. In upcoming episodes, we'll explore strategies to manage and mitigate amygdala-based anxiety, so stay tuned!Remember, knowledge is power. By understanding the source of your anxiety, you can better navigate the path to healing and peace. And if you want to delve deeper or need personalized guidance, don't hesitate to reach out.
