When I arrived at their home it was exactly like I thought it would be, I was overcome with emotion and I broke down. But, I broke down in the arms of people who were broken and oddly it healed me. Going to Jordan’s house and talking to her parents was a turning point in my life. I talked to them about how they deal with pain, how I should deal with pain, we talked about her life, her stories. But there was something that afternoon that changed my life completely. The guilt that I was feeling and thought only Jordan would be able to answer; Jordan’s parents answered for me. . . . And at that very moment I broke free. They snapped my bounds in half, they set me free. I am forever thankful that they were just able to tell me what I didn’t reply to, it was exactly what I needed.
A couple weeks later after my visit with Jordan’s parents my Writers Craft class decided that we were going to lead our teachers in a group devotion. The topic of the devotion was pain. I was so thankful for the experience to be able to share my story with the teachers of my school. It was one of the most satisfying experiences I have had. They listened, they asked questions, they learned, I learned, it was fantastic. Afterwards, I had a conversation with a couple teachers about what they were going through, their struggles.
If it wasn’t for this class, I would probably still be bound by my locks and chains but this class gave me my opportunity to be freed. I full well believe God planned these struggles to make me stronger and to learn a lesson. The point of class is to learn, and learn I did.

Sets a tone for respectful and engaged learning in a climate of trust

Builds and enhances connections among students and between students and teachers

Merges academic, social, and emotional learning

Motivates students by addressing the human need to feel a sense of significance and belonging, and to have fun

Through the repetition of many ordinary moments of respectful interaction, enables some extraordinary moments

Dreams and Visions:

Seeing Jesus through Blind Bartimaeus' Eyes:
Jesus gets close to others--especially the broken--especially to me!
He changes narratives:
from judgement to love
from exclusion to inclusion
He creates hope
He is willing to do uncomfortable things
Image bearing power--to be the presence--
God's handiwork made to do beautiful work (Eph 2:10)
