Why do you teach? Because I have a counseling background as well, I find teaching incorporates many of my skills and gifts. One of the beauties of teaching literature is in the ability to provoke thoughts about beliefs, evaluate decisions by characters, and value objective truth.  The real power is in teaching literature from the perspective of the Christian worldview. I teach to share Christ with my students and to help them reconcile that life issues and all philosophical assumptions are only answered in the sovereignty of God’s will and through filtering them through His word.
