Amy Beebe, professor in Huntington University’s adult degree programs, is a full-time mother during the day and teaches physical wellness and nutrition classes in the evenings.
Her faith is essential in all aspects of her life, including the classroom.
“My faith is integrated by openly communicating about how it is impossible to live any day without seeing God,” Amy says.
She also connects physical wellness and nutrition to the passage in 1 Corinthians that refers to one’s body as a temple. Equipping people with the knowledge of how to treat the body as a temple is why she teaches at Huntington.
“Basic knowledge of what we need to know to eat healthy is essential,” Amy says, adding how misleading some nutrition labels can be.
“Mainly, I try to keep my classrooms very open and stress free,” says Amy. Those who are worried that taking her class will result in a 20-page paper on how the body works can relieve themselves of that concern. She doesn’t want her students to be intimidated about going back to school. “I have so much respect for the students.They come in eager to learn.”
For those who are considering enrolling, she suggests staying positive and to go in knowing that you will get what you want to get out of it. “Just do it. It’s wonderful.” Amy says. “The program is top-notch.”
