What’s on your iPhone? I have a lot of medical apps on my iPhone. I also have a Bible app that I love because I can read scriptures anytime or anywhere.
Who is in your house? Jimmy (husband), Harrison (son) and our dogs Rocky, Lexi, and Harley
What’s on your shelves? Goodness! What’s not on my shelves?
How do you spend your day? I teach Medical Assistant students at Kaplan College, which includes writing lesson plans and case studies. Then I rush home for dinner arrangements and usually a baseball game or practice.
What’s it like being a first time teacher? I am still learning the ropes, but enjoy every minute of it. I was nursing for a local internal medicine doctor and one of my former co-workers started teaching for Kaplan and told me I needed to teach. I got confirmation from God that this was His plan because I turned in an application on a Tuesday and started working there the next Monday. I work with students who are at a crucial transition time in their lives. Some are single parents trying to make a better life for their family or starting fresh after making mistakes with big repercussions. I have seen them grow and learn as students and have also been honored to see some of my students accepting Christ as their Savior.
What’s it like to be a baseball mom? I love being a baseball mom. I love to see my son compete and his passion for baseball. I love that he’s growing plus I get to yell and that’s a great stress release. LOL! Harrison plays on the Outlaws, a traveling team, whose motto is “Bring Down the Thunder.” We travel about once a month for tournaments. He also played in the Southwest League, which ended in June.
How long have you attended Trinity? I’ve been at Trinity for just about 9 years now. I didn’t like the concept of a big church and I was looking for a church where I could learn. A friend talked me into visiting and I attended my first service on Pastor Carl’s first day as Senior Pastor. As he took the stage for the first time the audience applauded. The reason I came back was because Pastor Carl told a story about how weird it would be if on Palm Sunday the donkey thought the applause for him. I was really impressed with his humility. I ventured out and met a few of the leaders of the single’s group at the Young Professionals Group. At this lunch I met Terisa Clark and sine guy named Jimmy Ragan. He briefly talked to me. I then got involved in the singles group and met lifelong friends. And if you haven’t pieced it together, I met my husband Jimmy!
The theme this month on Prize31 is “In Shape.” What areas of life are you challenged to be “In Shape?” I’m trying to shape up my life in areas of loving myself the way Christ loves me and trusting the plans He has for me.
