My name is Bob Hunt. I am a Catholic. I embrace fully the faith and morals of the Catholic Church and try to live by them, failing often and miserably. I have studied and taught the Catholic faith to everyone from pre-schoolers to retirees for over 35 years now, as a CCD teacher, RCIA team member, teacher in a Catholic school, Adult Faith Formation instructor and homeschooling father. I write a regular column for the local newspaper, the Knoxville News Sentinel.
By vocation, I am a husband and father. Married for 27 years and the father of three daughters, many of my concerns revolve around the effort to be a faithful Catholic as a family man.
My educational background includes an undergraduate degree in History and in Philosophy, a Master of Arts in Teaching, and a Diploma in Nursing.
By profession, I am a Registered Nurse. Most of my 24-year career has been in pediatrics, but I’ve recently made the move to adult nursing. I won’t pretend that taking care of someone who’s acting like he’s five years old wasn’t a lot easier when he actually was five years old! But, I’m making the transition with as little cynicism as possible. I have a great manager and genuinely like the people with whom I work, and that makes the transition easier.
As I said on my welcome page, my primary hope for this blog is that it will serve as a ministry of prayer. Please feel free to share your needs and concerns, and I will raise them up to the Lord in prayer when I pray morning prayer, the rosary, or attend daily or Sunday Mass. I invite my readers to do the same. I will pray for you. I ask your prayers for me. We can pray for each other.
