My name is Beth Jordahl, and I am a teacher at Turning Pointe. I love teaching here! The atmosphere of the studio is supportive, fun and so encouraging. I am always blown away by the attitude of the dancers and the dedication they put into their art.
"Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I stand up; You understand my thoughts from far away, You observe my travels and my rest; You are aware of all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, You know all about it, Lord." - Psalms 139:1-4
This year God has been teaching me the importance of learning and identifying what God thinks about us and allowing that to guide not only the big choices I make but also my daily decisions and actions.
"I read in a periodical the other day that the fundamental thing is how we think of God. By God Himself, it is not! How God thinks of us is not only more important but infinitely more important." - CS Lewis, The Weight of Glory.
This year has held a lot of changes for me! In January, I became a mom. Lucy Anne Jordahl joined the world with excitement and joy and has continued to bless us each day. This fall I am going back to school for my Masters in Counseling. I am even getting ready to start a blog! Every year God presents us with new challenges, changes, and blessings. I am learning that even with all of these changes, I need to find my identity and strength in what God thinks of me.
"Look at how great a love the Father has given us that we should be called God's children. And we are!" -1 John 3:1
