How do you use your †ime, †reasure (i.e., tithing) and †alen† in serving GOD?

We all have unique ways that GOD has called us to serve Him and His people.

I also can continue glorifying GOD as I finish and use my doctoral degree!

Father Bob‘s most recent ✌PTL✌ in his latest greeting to me stands for:

  • Precious
  • Treasure
  • Lady

¡Feliz Día de los Santos y Día de los Muertos!

Happy Belated #GenTX Day!

Yesterday, we celebrated our advocacy for higher ed in the State of Texas🏇 by sharing our college shirts on 📳social media ~ great timing before my school trip today!

This raised my awareness that I’ve been showing team spirit📢 a great deal lately!

Our Lady of the Lake University ~ where I’m finishing my PhD🎓 

Duke University ~ for Coach K‘s 5th NCAA🏆

 

 Texas Lutheran University ~ whose basketball🏀 team won the SCAC  

Cisco College ~ where I teach speech🎤 before my R.E. 💒 

Since I’m still surveying Texas student-athletes for my dissertation, NCAA players in the Southland Conference (Division I), Lone Star Conference (Division II), Southern Collegiate Athletics Conference (Division III) and NAIA Red River Conference can participate here!

My trip to So-Tex proved to be productive …

  1. First, I spent a whole day at my school in SA ~ where I initially visited my Chapel for Stations of the †Cross† and ♥Adoration♥ before the Blessed Sacrament, followed by researching at the library
Study Stuff

My †CHRIST† Bro, Joe, gave me this business card holder that comes in handy whenever I switch handbags!

2. Then, I got to see my fellow Ph.D. in CC for his fresh-from-the-press brand-newly released book ~ which I’ll continue to read during ♣Spring Break♣

I think that I can manage to read a chapter per day on the days when I’m off from teaching and tutoring!

Study Saturday: Time to Collect

It is official: my study has been approved!

Needless to say, when I was notified that I can commence my research, I was overjoyed and grateful to GOD. During every free moment, I have worked on my dissertation, from my concept proposal to my proposal defense to my research proposal ~ it surely has paid off!

Here is more information about my study:

I am surveying Texas student-athletes on their perceptions of how their college coaches’ leadership influences their academic and athletic performance, as well as their athlete satisfaction. Based on my own studies of leadership, this element is essential:

***VISION***

When I asked my former boss at the first college where I taught what she needed to complete her Ph.D., she pointed out to me:

***PERSEVERANCE***

When I asked my former office next door neighbor at that same school what got her through her terminal degree, she told out me:

***ENDURANCE***

… which also helped her with her first 5K race, which we randomly ran together!

Study Saturday: Servant Leadership

In ♥ & Soul, Community, Higher Ed, Home Sweet Home, Pro-DiSPO, Relationships, Study Saturday, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Workin' Woman, Yours Truly on 08/02/2014 at 11:00

A true leader is one who serves.

The philosophy of Robert Greenleaf is put into practice in the first book by Dr. Barbara Baggerly-Hinojosa, the first graduate of my cohort in our Ph.D. program.

In Are You a Ten?: The Ten Characteristics of a Servant Leader, Dr. Baggerly-Hinojosa includes journals for her readers to keep track of the progress through their servant leadership journey. She has taught workshops using this guide.

Following the publication of Are You a Ten?, Dr. B-H also released The Leadership Collection, an anthology of articles.

Now Are You a Ten? is also available en español!

My doc classmate who I met yesterday also reminded me to look out for the best interest of my own students, a true testament of servant leadership.

Keep serving!
