“We are all called to steward our God-given gifts for all-inclusive blessings. As Christians, that means being empowered by the Holy Spirit to bless not only ourselves but, especially, the people and things around us with our time, money, energy and talents. Teaching at CU allows me to do just that and influence others to do likewise.”
