What’s Next for the Teachable Spirit?

What’s next for the teachable spirit? What could I do to make my life even better than it already is? What do I enjoy that I would like to have more of every day of my life? While I knew the answers to those questions, it also involves the engagement, interaction, and agreement of other people.

What is the definition of sufficiency? What is enough? How does the teachable spirit acquire this concept?

Visiting Ingrid with the Teachable Spirit

What has happened since the teachable spirit went to Kenya in 2013? Who visited Ingrid with the teachable spirit in 2015? What did they do while they were there? Stepping foot onto the property where Ingrid Education Centre is located after nearly two years absence filled the teachable spirit with an incredible sense of excitement and joy. I could not believe what the director, Douglas Monene, had accomplished in such a short time! The school is double in size and has a second story added to the first, finished latrines, a kitchen, nice office, and a place for the security guard to sleep at night. Experiencing that joy with me were individuals participating in a mission with Dreamweaver International; Dr. Warren Bruhl, the director, Ken and Sandy Taylor, Dr....

What makes people stand out in the work force? What characteristics help an individual have superior results in their career? How does the teachable spirit define professionalism? Professionalism is defined by our inner character, the behavior we exhibit, and the image we project. It is about high-quality service to others through our work and a keen respect for others’ rights.
