Teaching at Brookstone is a privilege. Daily I partner with a community of other teachers, volunteers and families to invest in young men and women who will be leaders among their generation. They are equipped with an excellent education, leadership skills and spiritual disciplines. I get to tell my students daily about how valuable they are to God and about His awesome purpose for their lives. It is awe inspiring to see them start to believe those truths about themselves and realize their potential.
I am pushed to constantly hone my skills and learn new techniques to fully equip my students with excellent education. It has been such a sweet time in my personal walk with the Lord to share Him with my students, learn more about Him through discussions with my students and trust and pray along with my students for His provision and guidance in our lives. We are learning together how to be disciples of Christ. I have learned so much about God’s character as I’ve walked alongside my students in their struggles and joys.
Unlike many, I can look towards the future of our nation with confidence and optimism because I see God’s work daily in the lives of future “Joshuas” – students equipped and passionate to boldly lead in advancing the Kingdom of God and making a positive impact in the world.
