From the Director

John 8:12I spent the summers of my childhood under the hot Texas sun. Now that I’m older, it’s obvious I got too much exposure to sunlight. Today, nurses and healthcare professionals instruct their patients on protecting their skin from the sun’s harmful rays and potential skin cancer.

1 Chronicles 28:9A.W. Tozer’s deep desire to know God intimately led him to study God’s attributes. And because he wholeheartedly believed that the strength of God’s people (the Christian church) depended on their concept of God, he was compelled to share what he found to be true about God through his teachings and writings.

National Nurses Week 2015Providing high-quality care and ethical practice is a primary concern of all nurses. As Christians, we have natural opportunities during National Nurses Week to focus on this theme from a biblical perspective and to celebrate nursing with our peers and coworkers.

Dad playingIn one of my first obstetrical/pediatric classes, I remember learning about infants who were raised in orphanages or nurseries with little contact or nurturing from caregivers. These babies were more likely to be lethargic or uninterested in their surroundings, and they often failed to thrive physically and emotionally.

During my youthful summers at Sky Ranch Camp, I had great fun riding horses, canoeing, and swimming. At Sky Ranch, I was challenged to know God and to give my life to him. We studied God’s Word and sang hymns and choruses that were packed with Scriptural truths.

ExamWhen I was preparing to enter a graduate nursing program, I took the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). When I finished, I knew that I had not done well. Weeks later, I received my test scores in the mail and my feelings were confirmed.

Railroad tracksChange. Some people embrace it, some people detest it, but it is a fact of life! The reality is that change can be challenging, but it is necessary for living creatures to grow and adapt to changes within themselves and in their environments. Babies do not stay babies!
