A Change of Pace ...

For the past several weeks, I’ve written some blogs to help job seekers in their search for work. I hope you’ve found the information helpful or that you’ve passed it along to someone who is looking for work.

As some of you know, I teach Career Readiness classes for Tacoma Community College at the Distance Learning Center in the Goodwill facility in Tacoma. This has been a great blessing in my life. It has allowed me to do something that I really enjoy doing: teaching – and hopefully, the course has helped others along the way.

I’ve approached the teaching assignment as a “calling” -- searching for materials that would not only help students learn the basics of job searching – but that would also inspire them as they participate in the process of learning.

We are between sessions right now – so I am busy gathering new materials for our next class beginning in January.

That break has also given me some time to teach The Old Testament to a handful of high school students from Church. Each morning we start at 6:00 am and read the scriptures and discuss gospel topics before the head over to school.

In the past two weeks, we’ve covered Joseph’s story in Genesis 42-50 and it has been a wonderful experience for me, preparing a topic that I thoroughly love. The students have been fun to work with and I am very happy to have had this assignment.

Sometimes a change of pace is very nice. It gives us an opportunity to reevaluate our course and re-charge our batteries, gathering new momentum and energy for the next part of our journey.

Next week, I’ll be back to posting blogs about how you can improve your marketing for your business.

Until then, as my favorite TV character “Red Green” says: “Keep your stick on the ice.”
