Lynnette Fields, High School Humanities
Lynnette’s favorite Bible passage is Psalm 46:10:
Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
She is reminded to stop and rest in Him, our refuge and strength, when reflecting on this verse.
Lynnette loves so many things about the outdoors, it is difficult to choose just one activity! If she had to choose, gardening would have to take the prize. Cultivating a garden full of flowers and vegetables encompasses several of her favorite things about the outdoors - playing in the dirt, observing insects, learning new things, and beautifying a space for daydreaming or reading a good book.
Jessica Ng, Science and Math
Jessica is comforted by Romans 8:28:
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.
She loves to rest in the knowledge that God can bring good out of absolutely any situation, and she hopes to pass on that confidence to her students.
If she can’t be in the ocean or near the ocean, Jessica loves long walks with her husband, her children, and her dog.
Abigail Reynolds, Math
Abigail loves the testimonies of faith found in Hebrews 11:32-34:
And what more shall I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets— who through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, were made strong out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.
She is humbled to read about the great faith of many before her and the incredible love, faithfulness and preeminence of our heavenly father and friend. May we be encouraged to reflect often on our own testimonies of faith as reminders of the Lord’s steadfast love and kindness.
Abigail enjoys spending every second she can outside, no matter the weather. She particularly enjoys bathing in the sun, listening to the sounds of the ocean, getting her hands in a garden, and experiencing new places and cultures with her husband.
Amy Tiilikainen, Language
One of Amy’s favorite verses is Psalm 22:4-5:
In You our fathers trusted; they trusted, and You delivered them. To You they cried and were rescued; in You they trusted and were not put to shame.
In the midst of great distress, the Psalmist says these words to remind himself of God’s faithfulness to His promises and character. We can rest assured of God’s constant care for us. He is our rock and our sure foundation!
Amy enjoys hiking and canoeing, and anything that involves building a fire!
