“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God. It changes me.”~C.S. Lewis
“We read to know we are not alone.” ~William Nicholson (often misattributed to C.S. Lewis)
“A word after a word after a word is power.” ~Margaret Atwood
Working at Houghton Academy, I can combine my faith with my passions for reading and writing; then, I am invited to share all three with my students. The fact that God spoke the world into creation illustrates the awesome power words have, both the words that we read and the words that we write. Additionally, our Creator God, whose creativity is all around us in this world, made us in His image; therefore, we have the capacity to be creative. Because of these truths, I am convinced that our words can create change in ourselves and in others. What an awesome opportunity I have to weave together reading, writing, and faith as I teach at this school.
