- I’m God’s beloved, fearfully and wonderfully made. I was lost, but now I’m found. I was blind, but now I see. I am a follower of Jesus and his ways. My life is not my own, but his. Not my will, but His be done.
- I’m also a husband to my wife and a father to my children.
- I’m a teacher by heart, a scholar by training, and a technologist by accident.
What are my strengths?
- I’m passionate about what I do, giving it 110%. I expect high standards from myself and from others. I think outside the box, challenging status-quo. I love ideas, especially innovative ones.
What is my place in the world?
- I’m called to be a teacher, someone who guides, instructs, and mentors others to their potential.
What do I value most and are my areas of greatest priority in life?
- I value my faith in Jesus, my family, and social justice (through education).
What is my mission, purpose, and plan?
- My life purpose is to bring God glory through educating and mentoring others so that they can reach their potential.
How much am I willing to suffer or pay for what I value most in life and are my areas of greatest priority?
- I’d like to say that I’m willing to leave my well-paying job to pursue what I value and invest in my areas of greatest priority, but I’m not there yet.
How does the way I spend my time align with what I value most and are my greatest priorities?
- I spend an inordinate amount of time in my work, mainly supporting other faculty and educating them about teaching with technology, but I don’t know whether that really aligns with what I value most and are my greatest priority.
Write down what it would look like if things were going just the way I want them to be.
- I would be working for an international organization that focuses on educating the least of these. I would love to have my children be involved in some meaningful way. I would be operating both at the “front lines” and back in the “think tank.”
