Discover Shiloh

My husband asked me to blog about a Shiloh event he is hosting this Thursday. I would not have thought about blogging it if he hadn’t asked, but I should have. And yes, I am married to the Shiloh admissions and public relations guy, but the following is my true and honest feelings concerning the topic. Promise. Ok, here goes….

Shiloh. Christian. School. Is. The. Best. Thing. That. Has. Ever. Happened. For. My. Girls. That is quite a statement and one I believe with all my heart. I get that there are a lot of fallacies out there surrounding Shiloh. I used to be one of the people who believed them. (I’m still harboring some resentment for them beating Hector in the state championship game back in ’99. But I’m praying about it.) I can’t even begin to explain how my heart soars when my girls are singing worship songs in the backseat because they heard them in chapel… or how I feel when they recite more scripture from memory than I can. Bottom line is, Shiloh is grounding my girls in a way Matt and I could never do alone. The foundation they are building is Bible-based and solid and founded in everything we believe as a family. Right now, that’s everything to us.

I would do anything for my kids. Sending them to Shiloh is probably the best thing we have ever done for them. I get that it’s an investment. A pretty big one. Not to mention a sacrifice. But in my humble, humble opinion, it’s above and beyond one of the best decisions you can make for your child. If you have never considered it, I really think you should. Forget everything you think you know, and take a fresh look at it for yourself.

Matt is hosting a preview day called Discover Shiloh this Thursday. Go here to find out more info or shoot him an email at It will be worth your time to check it out. I screw things up so often with my kids. Shiloh is one thing I know I got right.
