Favorite Bible Verse:

"I will lift up my eyes to the hills.  From where does my help come?  My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.  He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.  Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.  The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand.  The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.  The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.  The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore."   Psalm 121

What I love about Martin Luther School:

For myself coming from a small rural town, I love that Martin Luther has a personal small town feel.  There is truly a feeling of "family" amidst our staff, students, and parents.  I love that!  And, being able to teach with Christ anchoring all that we do brings immeasurable joy and fulfillment to our days.

 

Favorite Bible Verse:

"For the Lord God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control." 2 Timothy 1:7

Education

 

What I love about Martin Luther School:

I knew that I wanted to be a teacher in a Lutheran School since the age of five.  I grew up in a K-8 Lutheran School and knew that I was loved and that Jesus loved me.  I love that I can share Jesus' love every day in every way.  We are all God's children in His family.  Martin Luther School was one of the reasons we moved to the Bismarck area because we knew we wanted our children to attend a Lutheran School.

 

Favorite Bible Verse:

"Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all.  The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every thing, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."  Philippians 4:4-7

I love the supportive faculty, staff, and parents at MLS.  They have helped me transition into a new school and a new area of the country.

 

Favorite Bible Verse:

"Have you not known?  Have you not heard?  The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.  He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.  He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.  Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint."  Isaiah 40:28-31
