Tuition Credit for Sammy & Jayson

Originally Written - August 2014

I am writing this letter today to tell you some exciting news. The twins were accepted to Mt. Calvary School for the 2014-2015 school year. This is a private Christian school in Flagstaff. As with any good Christian education, the tuition is high. With TWIN BOYS, it seems like an impossibly huge amount to cover. As a single mom on a limited budget I am going to need help to give them this great opportunity. Lucky for us, the State of Arizona offers a dollar for dollar tax credit against your state tax liability. Any monies donated between now and April 15, 2015 will be credited to the 2014-15 school year. This money will help cover tuition for both the Fall and Spring semesters. Sammy and Jayson are registered at this website:
Sammy Ludwig -- Jayson Ludwig -- Mount Calvary Early Education
If you go this website, you can donate online using a debit or credit card or mail in a check for your donation. In the drop down box, you will select to donate to a Family/Student. Type in each of the boys' names and then you can select their school. (If asked on any forms, the boys are classified as Kindergarteners.) The total amount varies for each tax payer, but the donation could be up to an approximate $3,000. WOW!
All monies will be credited to your next tax return. If you have any specific questions, please refer to the website. If you can not find an answer, please email me and I will forward the information to the financial office at the school.
I first met their new teacher a couple years ago at a MOPS (Moms of PreSchoolers) meeting. She was explaining their different school programs to all the moms. Since that day, I knew in my heart that Sam and Jay needed to attend this school. We do have a preschool closer to our home, but I want the boys to be given a great start to their education. I know they will get that from Mrs. Williams. The boys love going to church. They love bible stories. I have even heard them recreating bible stories from Sunday School in their room with their toys.
I have an amazing amount of anxiety regarding this decision but I am trusting in God that all the finances will come together. I know this verse is often quoted but it is a verse that has stuck with me, even when I wasn't giving enough time and energy to my walk. There have been many times when I wasn't sure what our next step was going to be. However, we have spent the last four years planting roots in Flagstaff. I KNOW this is where the Boys and I are supposed to be.
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Thank you for reading and considering to help the boys with their tuition to Mt. Calvary.
Thank you.
