Faith and Learning Statement
Amy Bradley, Friday Enrichment Teacher/Coordinator
During the summer prior to my sophomore year of high school, I invited Jesus Christ to be my personal Savior. Over the years, God’s precious grace has been evident. He continues to make me more like Christ—working on weaknesses within my heart. Using God’s words found in Hebrews 13:20-21, I pray: “Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip me with everything good that I may do his will, working in me that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.” I am thankful for God’s grace in my life. I am confident of this, that he who began a good work in me will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6).
As one loved much by God and who deeply loves her Savior, I desire to share His love and grace with others. For twenty years, my primary calling was to my husband and our six children. While that call remains, the Lord has expanded my scope of love to include the children attending NorthPointe Christian Schools. I want to facilitate children’s development not only academically, but also spiritually and emotionally—to grow in Christ, develop Godly character, and form healthy friendships.
In a world that competes for the hearts of our children, the need for children to establish a foundation built on the Word of God is imperative. As a teacher, I desire to partner with parents in discipling God’s children, each fearfully and wonderfully made, designed by their Creator with their own unique personalities and gifts, to grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ and to walk in obedience to Him, equipped to impact the world for the Kingdom of God. To be used by God as an instrument in His children’s lives to teach them to love God and love others is truly a gift.
