First of all, this blog is unapologetically Christian in nature and the author of this blog will always strive to do the following:
*Glorify God in all his wonder
*Minister to people
*Give you a laugh sometimes
*Model positive behavior, through yourself, others, and acts of charity.
Curious about the meaning of the word Arete'? Well, in Greek thought, Arete' was "courage and strength in the face of adversity" and in that culture was what all people aspired to.
I did major in Elementary Education, now Majoring on what God desires and calls me to do, whether it be pastoring or staying in teaching or whatever. For the last 2-3 years of my life I have handled things in exactly the way that I shouldn't. I was very depressed for a long period of time until I realized that the only way to help myself was not through a litany of expensive medications or long hours of therapy...it was through helping others! The Arete' Blog exists for anyone who might come across it who is discouraged and I am going to do my best to keep it a positive place for those who visit.
