The Calling of a Student

Students: What is your vocation? Have you made a career choice? Would you consider it your calling? If you are like the typical college student, your answer to that question likely is not a very confident one. It is not unusual to consider the college years as a quest to find one’s role in life.

Caring For Those With Disabilities

Once you are in high school, you begin to think about what you want to do after graduation.  I always thought I would get married and have children.  I had no interest in continuing my education, and I did not want to write another paper or do homework again in my life.  I started to […]

Teaching – A Blessed Calling

It was a grade-school science teacher’s enthusiasm and demonstrations that first hooked me on science.  And then God gave me a pair of chemistry and physics teachers who showed me some of the most fascinating aspects of God’s creation and helped me understand “why” things in creation do what they do.  These experiences solidified in […]
