I teach Physics at both Parent Teacher Coop and GRACE Christian Home School.  I have also tutored all math levels for the past 17 years, and was a Supplemental Instructor for Calculus I and Calculus II at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach Florida.  I have a strong passion for math, music and creative writing.
Since graduating with an Aviation Computer Science degree from ERAU, I worked for Soft Reality as a Software Engineer.  My favorite contract project was a touch screen coloring book for Universal Studios.  I also did lots of 3D rendering with GameGen and MultiGen, and system administration on UNIX platforms.  Lately I’ve been involved in website development to keep up with my database skills.  Some websites I’ve helped either start, redo, or maintain include: KoetjeLandscaping.orgTrinity-crc.orgOur-Rock.org, and WhyIsThisHappening.org.  I’ve worked in WordPress, Expression Engine, and Joomla.
I have 4 kids ages 20, 19, 9, and 8.  I am a member of Grand Rapids First, and am on the leadership team for WhyIsThisHappening.org, a video driven website with a focus on finding God’s special assignment and sharing that story with others.  I have also been a member of Brookside CRC for 10 years where I participated in the praise team, led flute choir, wrote dramas, produced worship videos, and was on the leadership team for both praise team and missions.


As far as the east is from the west… Physics begins with the difference between distance and displacement, and connects to how displacement of sin is the same for all, but God’s forgiveness covers all that distance.  Then it continues with gravity and motion connecting gossip that may be in motion, and forces that may be needed to stop it.  Continuing with forced, we follow the Israelite’s through the wilderness, pondering the forces needed to move water and drive out ‘ites’.  It touches on torque, and relates it to broken relationships that may need the right force in the right direction, in order to bring healing.  Then it returns to the wilderness with vectors and direction, and wandering, and being lost if off by even 1 degree.  Static equilibrium and tension is connected to the tension that may be needed to keep us still and at peace in the palm of His hand.  We connect the journeys of Paul and Peter to power, work, and momentum, and how the longer time spent with someone/something the greater the influence/velocity it has.  Optics, and how an image is either magnified, reduced, virtual, or real is connected to our being made in the image of God.
