Program Coordinator: Creighton University Clinical Education & Simulation Center
I've been at Creighton since 1989.
|More about me:
I'm 55+ years old. Married for 30+ years to a blue-eyed beauty who is truly a gift from God. I have seven children, high schoolers to college students, all boys. I come from an Irish-Catholic background, was raised Methodist, married a Lutheran and am now a Presbyterian. Go figure. As you would guess, with all these kids, much of my life revolves around children. Children are a gift from God and I love being around all children, not just my own.
I coach soccer, teach Sunday School, do a Bible study
on Wednesday nights and share duties with my better
half as cook, bottle washer and chauffeur. I love to read and listen
to music. I lean towards rock music and in recent years have become
a big fan of some contemporary Christian musicians. I love to travel
and am blessed with children who can handle six hours in a van pretty well.
I often marvel at how I've been blessed.
|Writing these reflections:
When I was first asked to write a Daily Reflection, I was quite intimidated.
I am definitely not a Bible scholar. In fact I don't believe I've
ever set foot on the campus of a seminary, let alone attended one.
However, I love God and I love His Word and I saw this as an opportunity
to share my faith with others. I just didn't realize how many others
it would be. I originally thought this would just be a thing for
Creighton people. Then I got a note from a gentleman in California
thanking me for my reflection. Then I was really intimidated.
The key for me, when writing a reflection, is to use my heart and not my
head. If I try to analyze scripture or try to get too wordy, it simply
rings hollow. If I'm just honest and speak from the heart, God seems
to bless the effort.
