Devotion

Sheldon Browning
Class of 2009
Education Administration and Leadership - Student Affairs

I am profoundly dedicated to my faith, church, and religion and am earnestly attached to my God because of the knowledge I have about certain truths and the conviction I hold regarding the happiness that I know will be found by every person who will embrace those truths. My character and lifestyle reflect that devotion. I am devoted to my family. My goals, endeavors, and aspirations are born out of that devotion. As a word to be traded in place of my name, I prefer the noun, “devotion” over the adjective, “devoted.” The preference to the noun finds meaning in my belief in the word “devotion” as a virtue – a virtue that may indeed be used to describe me, but one that I also seek to exhibit with more consistency.
