I AM LSL: We are the Meyer Family

Why did we choose Lutheran Schools of Lincoln?

Because, we want our children to be effective disciples of Christ, and have a well-formed Christian faith and understanding.

Early on we knew that we wanted to make Lutheran education a priority for our children. We also knew that making Christian education a priority would be a sacrifice financially. Over the years we have seen God provide for our family not only to help us be financially able to keep our kids in Lutheran schools over the last 9 years but to complete the adoption of our youngest son from China. Teachers and friends from Trinity Lutheran School and Lincoln Lutheran have been wonderful prayer and support systems as we walked forward in faith to be able to adopt internationally. Our oldest daughter remembers classmates telling her, “We pray for your little brother every day.”

Just as we sat down to write this I remembered a photo and memory from Natalie’s last day of Kindergarten in May of 2014. Enjoying popsicles with her classmates after closing Chapel service. In the van on the way home Natalie kept loudly singing “Go, My Children with my blessing”…it’s really the “In my loves baptismal river, I have made you mine forever” part that makes me smile to hear her belt out in the back of the van.

In reflecting, we smile as we look back knowing in hindsight that the act of faith in choosing Lutheran Schools of Lincoln is making a positive difference in our children’s faith formation. That’s why #WeAreYou!
