Find Your Passion

Do you ever sit back and wonder what you want to do with your life? What do you want to pursue for a major in college? What do you want to do for a career? What do you want to devote your life to doing? What do you want to accomplish over the course of your life?

Find your passion and pursue it. Find what you love -- what excites you, what inspires you -- and make a career out of it.

My career started with my love for mathematics. I loved it as a child, in high school, and in college. I became a math teacher, and I found I loved passing my love for mathematics to others.

I also love learning. I enjoy reading, exploring new topics, and conquering new skills. I enjoy teaching, seeing students learn, and helping teachers further develop their teaching skills.

I deeply love Jesus Christ and the Word of God. I enjoy theology, and I get excited helping others develop their faith and walk.

These passions all meet in my vocation. I am a Christian school leader. For the past 22 years I have worked in Christian schools as a teacher, coach, principal, and head of school.

What has God designed you to do? Pray about it. Seek advice from mentors and leaders around you. Explore opportunities around you. Develop your gifts. Volunteer in situations where you can learn more and use your talents. Work hard. Study hard.

I know God has a calling for you. I know he has a mission for you.
