And if you want a deeper glimpse...

for the next NINE weeks

I've claimed this verse as my own

  • Psalm 139:14: "I will praise thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thou works; and that my soul knoweth right well." Life is a marvelous journey, and I hope to show you glimpses of it right here!

Oh. My. I felt like I was sitting in the desk right next to you! And I am going to have to tell you, your class sounds a lot more fun than mine! Be that light that stands out... YOU are making an impression on your fellow students. They will remember you. Love ya


ok this sounds way interesting and I'm already looking forward to more blog posts (and in person stories) from this class!

What a great write up! I was right there with you as well. Would you mind sitting back a little, I had a hard time seeing the kids in the back row. LOL. Kidding

Sounds like a great class. I hope you keep posting on what you learn there.


Sounds like you are having too much fun learning!!

Staci--what a wonderful experience you're in for. When I went back to school five years ago to complete my degree, I had the same feeling of my heart going out to the students, but for a much different reason. I was at a small Nazarene college where most of the 18-19-20 year old students had never had any experiences other than within their small home/church/private school circles. While they had faith, it was a complacent, shallow feeling they took for granted . . . until the religion professors started calling into question everything they'd believed all their lives. As someone with a lot of life experience, I reveled in finding God through an intellectual study of the Bible, Church history, and even philosophy--but I felt sorry and prayed for these young students who didn't have the depth of experience nor the deeply rooted faith that comes from those experiences.

I know God will show you how to be light and hope for the students you're with!


I'm so glad you are all sharing this journey with me! Jackie, I will definitely keep posting about classes. Kaye, I think you are so right. These kids are so impressionable right now - it really makes me feel good about being the "old" one in the bunch! Denise & Rochelle, I wish I could sneak you in with me. But I'll do the next best thing and just report what I see, hear, and learn!
