Decisions, big and small, determine how people live their lives and what experiences they partake in. The world runs on decisions. But decisions do not just affect people. It also affects the community around them. Everyone on earth encounters similar experiences but sometimes the train of events and decisions that lead up to that experience shape the type of person someone becomes.

The Feather asked teachers and students at FC what decisions they have made in their lives and how those decisions continue to affect them and the community that surrounds them.

Choosing to trust God
Macie Thompson, ’19
Feb. 2, 2018

“One of the most impactful decisions I have made in my life is to follow Jesus. That is one my most impactful decisions because I live a life for him now and I get to spread his love everywhere I go.I was personally impacted because I joined the worship team at my church and at my school. It helped me to gain confidence and it helped me to understand how great God’s love for us is.”

Teach high school science rather than research
Dr. Karen Walters, FC science department teacher

“One impactful decision I made in my life was deciding to teach biology instead of do biology in the research lab,” Walters said. “It is really cool because then I get to share it with more people and it’s just more exciting that way. I hope I bring experience I’ve had in research to teaching science and sharing that excitement of discovery. I just really like sharing science. When I see those little light bulbs go off and when I see a student that enjoys what we’re learning it’s my favorite part.”

Joining karate
Ryan Brazil, ‘20

“The most important decision I’ve made in my life would probably be joining karate,” Brazil said. “I was going though a really tough time last year and it really helped me and it has set me on the right path to go to God. And it also has helped me with discipline and self-control a lot of the time. So that helped me succeed in school, sports and hobbies. It really affected me in my attitude. My dad and my brother joined too.”
