Amy Broeseker believes her faculty position at Samford University is a vivid example of God's plan for her life. "It is very clear to me that God wanted me at Samford," she said. "By seeing the joy of helping others through the work of my father (a teacher) and my mother (a nurse), I thought I might enjoy the combination of those two vocations by teaching in the health-care field someday. During the last year of my fellowship, I prayed for God's direction for my next steps. Over the next several months, many people and situations pointed me to this special place." During her spare time, she enjoys her passions for music—she sings in her church choir—mountains and college sports. Her life verse is Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
