Thanks for wanting to join me.
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
As many of you know I have jumped feet first, or perhaps I have dove head first, into a Masters of Nursing Education program this summer. To get my feet (and head) wet, it was decided that the best course for me to start with was: Technology in the classroom. Honestly, I groaned inwardly when I heard the suggestion and thought, “I couldn’t be less interested in a topic than THIS!!!” Ha ha. Great start! I am so non techie. Surprisingly, I have enjoyed the world I have been submerged into, even though I am gasping for air in my struggle to learn about this topic that I have dodged my whole life. The resources and tools that my eyes have been opened to has been phenomenal. If a class can change someone in four short weeks, this one already has.
Take for instance this web page. YEP. It is one of the assignments. Yet, it was something that one of my son’s suggested to me and I had been procrastinating about doing and avoiding it like a third world plague.
I had to create a video and that STRETCHED me to a very taunt place (nothing that a massage couldn’t undo). You can find it on the malaria page.
One of my favorite projects was writing the story of why I am becoming a nurse educator in the Storybird website (a sweet resource for children/ and child-at-heart people). I would love if you read that story here: https://storybird.com/books/dreams-big-enough-to-scare/?token=df9zwu5bd4
Truly, it is a journey of faith and a journey long expected and anticipated. My heart is full at the hope of pursuing this goal. I now know from my time in Papua that many yearn for further education, but simply cannot obtain it. How blessed am I. May the Lord use this step for the furthering of His heart.
