I love seeing God’s Word glorified through the teachings at NPC. It’s amazing to see colleagues teach and pray and lead in Christ’s truth. It inspires me both as a teacher and a mother to lead my children well.
Faith & Life
Mrs. Luckey graduated from Calvin University and this is her fifth year at NPC. She loves working with students of all ages, especially those in the Spanish Immersion program. She is from Spring Lake, MI and enjoys spending the summer camping with her husband and two kids. In her spare time, Mrs. Luckey reads or gardens.
Statement of Faith
Growing up in a Christian home, I thought my faith was solid. After all, I obeyed all the really important rules, and confessed all the sins I could think of. My parents reminded us at every opportunity that it was very easy to stray down the wrong path and end up a lukewarm Christian. While I considered myself a strong Christian, I discovered that relying on Christ required me to respond to a personal relationship with Him. I gave him my heart when I was 13 and have followed Him ever since.
This relationship grew and was also challenged as I matured. College was a difficult time as I struggled with personal weakness and sin, but I was strengthened, renewed, and forgiven as I started my married life with Mr. Luckey. As I am now in the married life phase, I rely on Christ completely throughout my day, for decisions big and small. He is my fount of strength and love, and the inspiration for the love I strive to express to my students. My life verse is Isaiah 26:3: “You, O Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in You.”
Now I am so thankful He blessed me with the opportunity to be a teacher, and I cannot express my gratitude over being chosen to teach at NorthPointe. The support of the staff and families blesses my heart daily.
Studying Spanish as a Christian means that knowing another language is not merely a way to help one’s self advance into a new career field. Knowing Spanish as a Christian means that I am acknowledging that other nations on our planet are valued members of the Body of Christ. I have the privilege of communicating to them and with them. This respect leads me to want to know their language and to want to bless others with the knowledge that they too can communicate with our neighbors in their language.
In my classroom, students will learn many logistics in the study of language, but we will also delve deeply into culture and many issues facing Spanish-speaking nations today. We will strive to care for others more deeply, and brainstorm ways to give to those around the world who are different from us. This cultural awareness reflects the way Christ asked us to go into all nations, preaching the gospel and loving our neighbors.
I hope that all students in my class leave knowing that I care for them and am praying that they might impact our world for Christ, hopefully one day through the beautiful Spanish language.
