Something Old, Something New

The online journal I use sends me daily flashbacks of journal entries. The following is my entry from July 4, 2016.

I mean, what do I want really?  Really?  I want to follow God wherever He leads me.  I want to bridge high school and college.  I want to help people learn to become better writers (although, really, I’m not sure why I care about that so much, but I do).  I think it’s because in the process of becoming better writers, we become better people who learn to get in touch with who we are and who we are in community.  By learning to express ourselves better in writing, we learn to think better and dream better and love better, and explore better, and live better.  In learning to write better we learn to look for purpose and meaning in the world and in ourselves.  Writing is a gateway to exploring the fullness of our humanity and how God divinely orchestrates our roles in the world.  Learning to write better enhances our ability to be and think and do and create, to understand we have purpose and to fulfill it.  Writing is living at its fullest, and being able to help people live is a worthy endeavor, indeed.

I still find helping people write a worthy endeavor.

I also still want to bridge high school and college, too.

Actually, I want to bridge all kinds of levels of education and help people, whether they are in or are out of school, keep on reading, writing, creating and learning.

To that end, I’m working on something new to offer you through LELA House. I’m dipping my toes into course creation.

I’ll keep you posted on what’s coming up. In the mean time, if there’s a course you’d like to see, please comment and let me know what’s interesting for you. And please, keep on living, reading, growing, writing, exploring, loving, dreaming, and becoming who God created you to be.
