But when I look back on it now I can totally see how God was there the whole time and how he was working in my life then and using things step by step to draw me back to Him.

  • The Impact of iPads in NLA Classrooms

    New to NLA this year is the use of iPads in the classroom. The iPad harbors seemingly limitless functionality— its most significant value.
