My name is Kimberly Brenton and at this time I have a high school diploma. I tried to start college a few years ago but circumstances at the time prevented me from even receiving one credit. I am excited to get started and look forward to learning new things and expanding my universe.
I have held many different positions over the years, from waitressing to real-estate. I enjoy interacting one on one with people. My favorite career has been real-estate. Helping clients find the home of their dreams has been very satisfying. Seeing inside others homes has been very fun also. I hope with this degree to expand my ability to speak in a public arena and share my experiences.
I enjoy reading a variety of different literature. My favorite books recently have been “The Shack” by Wm. Paul Young and “Chesapeake” by James Mitchner. I also love to swim and was even a swimming instructor. I have five children (Jeremy, 23 Morgan, 21 Gordon, 12 Derek, 11 and Maddie, 5). I am also the mom mom to Michael, whom is five months old. I have instilled the love of the water in all of them (we are waiting to see if Michael loves it too).
My hope in obtaining this degree is to expand my knowledge of Christian world views and share that knowledge with others. I would like to use my life experience and new communication skills to become a Christian speaker. I believe GCU is a vital part of that by teaching me about the world around me, how expand that world and how to share that world with others.
Trying to be a positive influence for my children. Accepting my children for who they are not who I want them to be. Random acts of kindness. Peace is always possible even in diversity, not happiness.
An idea worth spreading is diversity with respect. There is such a thing as truth. Everything is not relative. Respect. Parents being the adult and taking back authority while children go back to being children. Morally correct instead of politically correct. Respectful use of language instead of vulgarity and profanity. Conviction. Tolerance without judgement but not acceptance either. Accepting responsibility and being accountable for your actions. Then accepting the consequences of those actions Bad things do happen to good people. Accepting that life is not meant to be easy, that fosters complacency. Hardship is a fact of life. Life is not fair, get over it.
No topic is off limits. I am interested in learning and sharing.
