"Reaching Up - Reaching Out - For Christ"
"What motivates me to teach and reach out to young people, even when I'm in pain myself is my love for Christ. When the Spirit of God prompts me to give and I respond with love, even when I'm uncertain, that's obedience. When I stop and realize the opportunity to connect and instruct young people -- especially when I'm stretched myself -- that's Christ-First teaching. This kind of teaching, giving, and mentoring reminds me of the great love, grace and compassion that Christ has for me. I realize that when I'm in need myself, He brings others to help, to reach, to teach, to love and to lift me up again." inspired by Karen Moore - 'Fulfilled'
Scripture connecting to my Philosophy of Ministry - Luke 10:41-42 - "Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed - or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."
