Do I seek satisfaction in who people think that I am? Some may think who we are is synonymous with our occupation. There is a desire to be successful in what one finds themselves doing.

As one year draws to an end and another year begins, I am almost as excited as when a new school year begins. I know many wonderful events will occur along with some which will bring sadness and maybe even despair. But as Isaiah tells us in chapter 43: 18-19, "Don't keep going over old history. Be alert. Be present, I'm about to do something brand new." As we begin the ...Keep Reading

Ask anyone, student or teacher, and you will find out that I'm kind of the school nerd. I love books, which is of course a prerequisite, but I'm also curious about just about everything. The thing I've been wondering lately though is why. Why do I still love learning when so many people really don't? What did my parents do to keep that spark of interest alive in me?
