Lisa Bulten

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

I teach math and science at The Potter's House High School. I am also the mother of three boys: 16, 20 and 22. My heart for the next generation has developed through my teaching, mothering and mentoring. I have seen firsthand that generational tensions are part of the way God forms us--pouring his grace on and through us. I have recently discovered a love of and an aptitude for art. The process I use is integrally connected to prayer, where God frequently gives clarity through the process of painting. My entry this year, grace upon grace, involves processing the lie of the supermom syndrome. God calls us to seasons of both rest and work. Accepting the season He has me in requires grace. This spring I cycled through my 4th bout with depression during my adult life, and reluctantly accepted the grace to enter rest. My deeper understanding of embracing both graces, and the interdependence of the two, emerged out of the time of rest.
