Lab 1 is in the Bag!
A second digression...
The lab exercise last night was not difficult. It was a little frustrating because the instructions didn't match to the new version of IBM® SPSS® Statistics 22. Once I got the software up and running, and then imported the data file, I was stumped as to what to do with it all. The lab instructions assumed I knew what to do, but clearly had some steps missing. Thanks to one of my colleagues, I was able to finally get to the meat of the exercise, and then answer the lab questions.
I am blessed to have some wonderful colleagues who have a statistical mindset and with whom I can run to with questions. They are great at responding and are so willing to help out. I am blessed, so very blessed to be in this doctoral program at Regent. God impressed on my heart that Regent was where he wanted me to attend. I waffled for so long, but am I glad I listened to His Holy Spirit in the end. I could imagine myself right now in another program, a program where everyone was out for their own well-being. If I needed help, I would be on my own. Instead, I am surrounded by people who love God, and who love research. We share, we help, we pray...we are open to others and as such we are journeying together. It is good, so amazingly good.
Plans for the Day
I don't really have any plans other than to complete my second DQ for my COM 785 Seminar - Family Communication in the Digital Age. Once that is done, then I am set for the entire weekend. I will need to design my next two weeks of lessons for my Short Story class at GCU. Other than that, and some cello practice, I have the weekend (long) to relax and to enjoy with my family. God is so very good, so very good all the time!
