To be honest, I felt a little awkward starting this blog. Any random person with access to the internet can start a blog, whether or not they really have anything to say.
But the fact of the matter is, we all have the ability to speak truth. In fact, if you’re a believer, it is your mission and goal to speak truth into the lives of the people around you. And while this may feel at times overwhelming, the internet allots us the gift to speak truth in ways we otherwise may not have been able to.
Last spring, I graduated from college with a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy. Two months later, I took my national certification exam, and two months after that I started working full time as a geriatric occupational therapist in a skilled nursing facility. While the journey has been wonderful and I am so grateful to be here, there is still a lot to learn. As a new grad therapist I am learning how to provide the best care possible, motivate my patients, appropriately communicate with my co-workers, engage in evidence-based practice, and efficiently manage my time, all while trying to avoid burn-out. Add being a Christian on mission in the most un-churched state in the US and things get even more exciting.
Through this blog, I hope to explore and document the things that God is slowly revealing to me through this new season of life, specifically through the eyes of a healthcare provider. Whether or not you’re a new grad like me, I pray that you find encouragement and truth through these posts.
God has gifted each of us with a unique and powerful voice. And it’s time I embrace that to the fullest.
