The Manleys

We have six amazing grands, K-12, this year. We are blessed that both of our kids graduated from CAL. I pray for all of them daily and I am thankful they are getting a good education, encouraging the true “wisdom” fear of the Lord!

Here we are celebrating our first born grandson turning 18 and God’s goodness!

Bill and Debbie

Ava is in kindergarten and loves CAL. In July 2022, Ava collapsed while at summer camp at CAL. By that evening, she was in the ICU at Norton Children’s Hospital with an inoperable brain tumor. After finishing 16 months of chemotherapy at the end of November 2023, she and her family went to Disney World courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It has been and will continue to be a long and difficult journey which we pray will have a happy ending. We are all profoundly grateful for the support of her CAL family. CAL is a truly special place with truly special people.


Our family strongly believes in the importance of financial sacrifice to provide a faith based foundation of learning. Jack and Alex have been enrolled in Christian education since they were in 2-year-old preschool. As our grandchildren grow in their faith, CAL’s caring teachers and supportive friends are on that important journey with them.

We have several scriptures we have leaned on through our lives. Of course , Psalm127 3-5. “Sons(and daughters)are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.” Proverbs 22:6 “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” We recognize that in Deuteronomy 6:4-9 God gives parents the responsibility to love Him with all of our heart, soul and minds and to share His commands with our children. Belief in Jesus Christ, His atonement for our sins and His resurrection  is  most important! We are grateful to have the influence of Christian Academy’s teachers, families and staff to support our efforts.

Proverbs 22:6 – How better to train up a child than in a Christian environment along with one in the home. Not a better foundation a child can have for their future than an education that trains them in the importance of prayer and having God in every decision they encounter in the world. 

Proud Grandma of Ruby!

She is so blessed to be able to participate in the high school plays. Mary Poppins is the fourth one she has been in and all the older kids are so sweet to her. She’s a very sweet little lady!
