Hurricane Ike

Posted in Home / Husband / Married Life on September 20, 2008 by Carole Hicks

This photo shows the results of Hurricane Ike in our little part of the world — in Ohio. The tree across the street from our home crashed down into the street and into our yard. During the storm cars were scurrying to get home and had to drive INTO OUR YARD in order to get around the tree and get safely home. Our home suffered only minimal damage. We were extremely blessed to have all power on the whole time. Many people in our town haven’t had power for an entire week!!


Art college recruiting

Posted in Uncategorized on September 20, 2008 by Carole Hicks

In case you are one of the two people who lurk on my blog and you’re wondering what I “do for a living”…I’m a college recruiter. I have the pleasure of discovering talented young people while they are still in high school. Here is an example of a junior in high school…a self portrait created with graphite pencil.

Praying for the students that I love

Posted in Christianity / Spirituality, Friends on September 20, 2008 by Carole Hicks

Where did the summer go…days when I had the luxury of posting to my blog and days of having time to “ponder” stuff and proliferate. I’m on the work highway now…driving to high schools all over the place, making new friends, encouraging young artists, and occasional meetings and gatherings at the college. I truly love my job and I’m passionate about making a difference in young people’s lives. Although I love discovering new talent and encouraging students to follow their dreams…what I really LOVE is praying for the students…praying for their well-being, praying for their safety…praying that they find the way to God…praying that they realize their value as a human being just because they were born. In the Bible/Psalms, it says we were “knit together in our mother’s womb” by him…we were fearfully and wonderfully made…continuously we are reminded that we are precious to Him and valuable! This is what I pray for all the students I come into contact with daily.
