Rest If You Must, But Do Not Quit!

Don’t You Quit!     I am so thankful, by the grace of God, that I held onto my faith in God and His divine inspiration to NOT quit my doctoral journey over the 7 1/2 years it took to cross that finish line!  I felt like it so many times, but now I’m on the other side of the finish line, with a sense of relief and satisfaction–and a bit of shock–that I really completed that journey last year…
