An active learning approach that utilizes higher order thinking, communication, leadership, and management processes is recommended in order to integrate suggested topics into the study of education and related careers.”

With the close of the fall semester, my senior career internship students reflected upon their experiences as they presented their final exam.

Hands down, Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love the lights, the carols, and the especially the Christmas cookies. I’ll stare at a nativity, wondering how and why this is the way God would deliver His Son. Christmas Eve worship with my church family is like a family reunion. And, there is nothing like sitting in my living room in front of our decorated tree, stockings hanging from the mantle, and the warm glow from the fireplace.
