Our student’s mindset. I have been amazed at how many of our students try to lift each other up instead of tear each other down.
How do you inspire your students?
I try to inspire my students with Phil 4:13 “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” I encourage my students that they can do anything. All they have to do is decide they want to do it and put in the effort. It may not be easy, but they can do anything.

What is your favorite Bible verse?
“Keep alert, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” I Corinthians 16:13-14 (NRSV). This verse is what I model my life on. It shows that we as Christians need to balance standing up for what is right while doing it from a place of love.
