Why Regent University?

Regent University offered a unique perspective in undergraduate studies. Christ-centered leadership and biblically centered classes develop students professionally and personally. The campus is beautiful, and I soon found that my professors and my fellow students exuded enthusiasm and dedication to the Lord and their educational pursuits. Classmates prayed with me and for me; studying became a group effort towards excellence and not just another homework assignment.

Why Online Learning?

I was 21 when I started the online learning program at Regent University. I had the opportunity to dual-enroll in a local college while in high school, so my associates degree was partially complete when I graduated in 2002. I hit the ground running by working full time after graduating from high school, attending night classes to finish my associates degree. I guess I got used to the schedule, and when it came time to find a university to transfer to, I knew I'd want a flexible format that would allow me to continue in my professional endeavors.

Why A Business Degree?

My degree is in Organizational Leadership and Management. I chose this concentration because of the unique mix of business strategy and leadership development. In choosing a degree program I wanted one that would emphasize the "people" part of organizations and their strategic development. Some degree programs focus primarily on the financial and strategic side of business development, but Regent stressed the importance of the organization's people and the effectiveness of biblical leadership.

December 7 Update

Friday, Dad went to a different doctor about his ankle.
This doctor told dad that he:

1) Did not need to have the hard cast, after all
2) In fact, he didn't need the boot, either
3) and he probably won't need surgery
4) He should feel free to move the ankle, as long as it isn't causing pain.

Quite different from the news last week! You can imagine how wonderful this is to him. The cast was so uncomfortable, and of course the upcoming surgery wasn't very good news.

The cast is off, and dad only wears the boot here and there, mostly to protect it when they leave the house. No more uncomfortable, hard cast! Yay!

It should be noted that both of these doctors looked at the same set of x-rays, and had vastly different opinions.
We are praying the same goes for the cancer.

As of now, Dad will be doing the proton therapy; however, he must be "accepted" into the program. What may keep him from being accepted is a troublesome spot that showed up on the x-rays in his chest area. There is an area on his chest, in the bone part, that is showing some "questionable spotting."

If it is more cancer, or a different type of cancer, then that may disqualify him from the proton therapy. (If interested, see link HERE )

Dad left the x-rays with a doctor on Friday (December 5) to review, to see if the questionable spot is cancerous or harmless.

This is short but since we have had such an answer to prayer for the foot I wanted to give you all an update.

Prayer requests:
Please pray that there will be NO further cancer that might disqualify him from the proton therapy and that the ankle/foot will continue to heal. Please pray for wisdom and clear diagnosis from the doctors who are looking at the x-rays and the reports. Please pray for speedy processes; with Christmas coming up, it is getting difficult to schedule appointments because of the limited schedule.

Thank you all and God bless you. Have a great week and I will post/email more information as it becomes available.
