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.

Hi everyone!
Thank you again for your prayers and your emails of encouragement. I will be giving a quick update tonight but hope to answer everyone personally over the next couple of days.
So dad went in to see the foot doctor, and the doctor said that the bone is not healing together like they hoped it would. They decided to put a hard cast on his foot. Please pray that we get in to see someone soon- the specialist recommended to us decided not to see dad because he was not the "original" doctor. Which doesn't make sense to us, but God closes a door for a reason.

As I mentioned before, we are looking into the proton therapy. It is a two month treatment option, so he would most likely move to one of the locations. Thank you for telling us what you know about this therapy and offering us phone numbers and names of people who have been through this before. I read him the "new" emails tonight and he is very grateful for all of your prayers and your information on this alternative therapy.

Of course, he still has his sense of humor through all of this. Just a moment ago, my parents were watching "The Twilight Zone" on television. (I use the term "watching" tv loosely because we always talk and do other things while "watching" television). Mom says, "How is it you've seen this movie, and I haven't?" Dad says, "We had television [growing up.]"
So we all had a good laugh at that.

Prayer requests now are that we will get in to the right doctor for his ankle to start healing properly. With Christmas coming up they are getting hard to book. Waiting two more weeks isn't good in case the ankle needs to be set again- surgery has been recommended now because of the extent of the break. Dad says he will go to the hardware store and get his own titanium screws and pins. (Kidding.)

If this email seems a bit "off" I am very, very tired and am not up to my writing par. That is the reason and not the critic's view of home-schooling's inadequacies :)

Love you all and sending a "thank you" from dad-
