Instructor's Note

In “Learning to Faith,” Michael Kuhn had to write a faith and learning paper that included both a narrative of his faith journey as well as an application of that faith perspective on his role as a college student. As a result, he traces his journey with God from before his salvation experience through to his current spiritual growth. He then transitions into the impact of his faith upon his worldview and his “perspective on knowledge, [his] definition of success, and [his] perception of student responsibilities,” fully exploring both requirements of the essay. How does Michael use specific images and language to develop his narrative? How does he demonstrate critical thought and avoid typical Christian clichés?
