The youngest child of Cristi and Ed Dittfurth, pastor of Cornerstone First Assembly, Asher Dittfurth, 10, is closing out his fourth grade year at Stephenville Christian School (SCS) where he will remain a student until he completes sixth grade and enters public school. His siblings, Ciara and Rhett, also attended the school, where Asher has been enrolled since he was three.

Asher recently shared his thought about the school and a little about life at home.

1. What do you like about SCS?

"I like math and the extra stuff like computers and art. I also like Fuel up to Play and our hay maze fundraiser and our walk-a-thon."

According to, Fuel Up to Play s a fun, interactive program that allows educators and students to decide how to make their school better through healthy eating and physical activity.

"I also like that the school is kind of small. That gives us a lot of one-on-one time with teachers, and except for two students who came in last year, I have had the same kids in my class since kindergarten. We also have chapel every Friday morning and Bible study is included in our lessons."

2. Which of your teachers has inspired you the most?

"I would have to say Mrs. Stewart because she has been here as long as me. All the other teachers, even our old principal, have left."

Asher is in his second year in Mrs. Rinda Stewart's class, which includes 14 third and fourth grade students in one classroom.

"We all help each other."

3. What is your favorite Bible verse?

"John 3:16 - For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Asher is one of eight of the 53 students currently enrolled at SCS who will face off in a Bible memory bee and chance to win a $100 cash prize.
