This is the 2nd episode in my 3 part summer podcast series offering a deep dive into my personal story: where I’ve been, where I’m at, and where I’m going.

Usually you can listen to my podcast episodes in any order you want, but since this is basically my life story, what I’m sharing in this episode will make a lot more sense if you’ve heard the beginning of what happened.

In this second installment of the three part series, I'm sharing more about the lived experiences and personality traits that shape who I am, how I interact with the world, and the kinds of resources I create.

Content warning: In the second half of the episode, I will share how my religious and spiritual beliefs have changed over the last 20 years. If you're not interested in hearing my experiences in this area, you can listen to the first half of the episode, and I'll let you know when I'm about to shift into discussions of religion.

Listen in as I share:

  • My honest answer about whether I miss being in the classroom
  • How the focus area I choose for my Masters degree lit a spark that led to the work I'm doing now
  • What I discovered about myself through the National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT) process
  • What my close friendship with the teacher next door taught me about my own strengths and weaknesses as an educator
  • The ways being an introvert and empath impact my work and how I see the world
  • How I rebounded from religious trauma as a teenager and found a new way back to the Christian faith in my mid-20s
  • How spending years doing prison ministry and mentoring the incarcerated has shaped my thinking
  • Why I began to feel pushed out of the Christian faith and disillusioned with the doctrine
  • Where I'm at now spiritually and what brings me a sense of peace and joy
  • How these changes in my belief system, personality, and identity shifts have impacted my marriage
