Several years ago, as a professor at Cincinnati Christian University, I was charged with trying to get a state approved teaching program for the school. If we got it, we would be the first school to be added to the roster of teacher educators in over 50 years in the State of Ohio. Talk about a David and Goliath story.
I wanted to cry. Supplying the evidence and writing the report for these requirements seemed overwhelming. “What was I thinking?”
I fell asleep crying and praying. The next morning I packed everything, attended the breakfast meeting and left. I drove to Indianapolis where I was to meet my mother at “Praise Gathering,” an annual event hosted by Bill and Gloria Gaither. I looked forward to the music washing over me. I needed it.
