Below is a snippet of him teaching a combined class of 7th and 8th grade.
The reason why I'm here is rather simple: After Christ got a hold of my life, my passion has been to share him with teenagers--since that is when God stirred my heart up and I received Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord.
It's always a privilege when I watch as God uses me or uses anybody to get a teenager on fire for God. Eric Chun is such a person. His senior year was one spent leading others into the throne room. It was so amazing to see God work through him. What I love about Eric is that he embodies 2 Corinthians 4:5-7:
5 For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. (ESV)
It is in watching boys becoming young Christian men and in watching girls become young Christian ladies that I find great joy. That is why I'm here.

Here are a few pictures of the 9 boxes and me unpacking them.
And here are a few pictures of everything put away in my tiny tiny kitchen. I was so pleased to find that everything fit!
This is my favorite Pampered Chef item at the moment. The turn-about caddy has made so much extra room for me AND made all my kitchen tools more accessible.
And this last picture has nothing to do with Pampered chef but I just thought it was so cute! I use these small white boards in my classroom almost everyday for kids to work math problems and other such problems on and then show me so I can know if they are understanding quickly. Well, one of the boys in my class held up his board for me to see and this picture was on it in addition to his answer. It made me chuckle and smile so I wanted to share it with you all as well. God Bless!
