    "I didn’t see Him or feel Him there for me when I was in that moment of rock bottom. I thought I was alone and that no one loved me.

  • A Christmas Message from Our Head of School, Cade Lambert

    Dear New Life Academy Community, I have a lot of hope this Christmas season. If you have read or watched any news over the last thirty days, you might be feeling otherwise.
