After Their Father Passed Away, This Teacher Took His Former Student to Father-Daughter Dance

Published

on

These days, we so often hear stories of teachers doing extremely inappropriate or offensive things in the classroom (or even with their students!), I think it’s more important than ever to lift up people who take their jobs seriously not simply as educators but in one of the members of the village raising a child.

If you’re an adult in a child’s life, you always have the opportunity to take some small part in raising them, and for some adults, the time comes when you need to take up the reigns and play a role they may no longer have in their parents.

This is what happened to two little girls whose father tragically passed away suddenly, leaving their mother widowed with five children.

The local community instantly rushed to the family’s aid, setting up a GoFundMe account and supporting them however they could.

The former teacher of daughters Alivia and Avery, however, found a very special way to help a bit in a priceless way.

Steven Culbert, who had done what he could to help as soon as father Luke was admitted to the hospital, had invited the girls to attend a local father-daughter dance with him and his two daughters when Luke was still in the hospital, during one of the several visits he made to the family before Luke passed away.

Several weeks later, while Luke had already gone, Culbert made clear to the girls the invitation was still open.

Local ABC 12 reports:

“We rented a limo. I had friends step up to buy their dresses. Another friend stepped up and bought the corsages and my boutonniere and even my own daughter’s corsages,” Colbert said.

The two girls were also treated to a day at the salon to get ready for their day.

“It felt like as if I was a Barbie Doll,” Avery Reece said.

All of them had fun at the dance, although the girls joked that Colbert needs to work on his skills on the dance floor. All of four of them had balloons with Luke’s name on it saying #BeLikeLuke.

“They are important to me just like my own family is and I want them to trust me, and I want them to believe in me the same way I believe in them and trust them,” Colbert said.

Such a sweet and small gesture that will no doubt have a big impact on the girls’ life and healing process.

America Gets Tutored in the Doctrine of Devils

College Fix editor Jennifer Kabbany says “Nevermind the War on Christmas – what about the War on Jesus Christ?”

College Fix editor Jennifer Kabbany says “Nevermind the War on Christmas – what about the War on Jesus Christ?” Universities across America show an outright disregard and disdain for Jesus Christ, a survey by The College Fix finds. “A look at hundreds of religious studies classes at universities across the nation uncovered that, for the most part, professors prefer to snub the subject of who Jesus is and what he preached. Classes that are focused on Christianity, meanwhile, tip-toe around or altogether avoid the topic of Christ’s teachings.” College Fix says, classes in witchcraft, shamanism, yoga, after life beliefs, gender and religion are, but a few of the courses schools now offer the students in American colleges. But it doesn’t start there – it begins in kindergarten classes and elementary education. Drag queens are reading to the kiddies on anything they see fit, all while dressed in full gay regalia. Prophecy News Watch site says “Queer Is In, Christian Is Out.” The piece written by author Jonathon Van Maren that many classic ideas, teachings, and stories for children are getting LGBT makeovers, like these. “According to Christianity Daily, the fairytale Cinderella will be coming to Amazon Prime in September with a “LGBTQ sexless godmother,” played, unsurprisingly, by male homosexual Billy Porter. Porter told CBS that the new version will be “a classic fairytale for a new generation.” The BBC is also plugging a new children’s book called My Daddies, the story of a motherless little girl adopted by two men. This book was newsworthy not because there is any shortage of this sort of thing lately, but because it is “the first book of its kind to be written and illustrated by same-sex adoptive parents,” and “the first picture book about two gay dads with both an LGBT author and illustrator.” PBS, as…

Leftists on God, Creation, and Religion

What do you say to a mass political movement that denies the existence of God…?

As many citizens know, even those on the Left, our nation was founded based on a strong belief in God. The Founding Fathers recognized that the rights of human beings are bestowed by the Creator, not by other people. They did not require that anyone be religious or adhere to any particular religious doctrine.  Concurrently, the often misquoted phrase about the “separation of church and state” does not appear anywhere in the U.S. Constitution. The statement was part of Thomas Jefferson’s response in 1802 to a religious association in answer to their letter from October 1801. https://usconstitution.net/jeffwall.html An Immutable Right The Danbury Baptists, a religious minority based in Connecticut, lamented that their religious liberty was regarded not as an ‘immutable right,’ but as a privilege granted by the state legislature. Jefferson’s carefully replied, but focused only on religious liberty on the national level.  His letter included the phrase “wall of separation between church and state.” This phrase has served as a type short-hand for the First Amendment’s ‘Establishment Clause’ which forbids the government from passing any law “respecting an establishment of religion.”  This Establishment Clause forbids the government from establishing an ‘official’ religion and from unduly favoring one religion over another. Any reference to God, per se, is an entirely different issue. Whom Do We Trust? Religious sentiment heightened throughout the dark days of the U.S. Civil War, as hundreds of thousands of soldiers died. A clamoring arose for the U.S. to acknowledge the deity, and subsequently the Secretary of the Treasury mandated that the words, “In God We Trust” appear on various Federal Reserve notes and on all coinage. www.treasury.gov/about/education/Pages/in-god-we-trust.aspx  In 1956, “In God We Trust” became the official motto of the U.S. Today, this phrase, and the words “one nation under God” in the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance,…
