The Re-Education of Lisa Cash


I’ve recently decided that I might just be ADHD. Seriously. I think I might just be half-crazy to stay as hyper-stimulated as I do, but it’s like I can’t help it.

Yes, I’m a homeschooling mom with four children STILL unpacking her house from a colossal move from Japan to Germany. And yes I enrolled in 6 credit hours of seminary classes this semester (and next)! Why did I do this to myself? I don’t know, but this particular time, I’m so glad I did…

Both in the School of Life and literally through Trinity University, I am retaking a class. It’s the class that changed the whole trajectory of my life when I was 19 years old: Perspectives on the World Christian Movement. I am immersed, underwater (um, because I procrastinated) in thousands of pages of really great, deep, life-changing stuff. I’m re-learning things that I forgot in Japan. And evidently things I never learned in the first place.

And I am finding myself so moved, both backwards and forward, that I am having to stop and repent and pray and worship and praise Him and thank Him so frequently that I’m not sure if I’ll ever finish this class! But I must, and I will. I will not quit. I will walk on, Lord-willing.

I am required to write a personal journal response at the end of each of fifteen units of this class. I’m in the middle of the course, and something has shifted in me, and I want to share it. I need to actually. So if you are one of those people on the planet who love me and want to know what is going on in my head and in my world, here I am. This is sort of an introduction, I suppose for what is to come in the coming days.

It’s funny: I was just about to let our old domain ( expire on January 1st and settle on from here on out, but I think I’ll hold onto it now…

    Dangit, I hate it when I post stuff like that and then I don’t follow through. I’m sorry! I really did learn a lot though, I promise!
