"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." ~President Theodore Roosevelt

Anthropology

I am a graduate with a Master of Divinity of Theology, from Fuller Theological Seminary.

Also, I just returned from Rome, Italy studying philosophy at one of the 15 Vatican Schools, Pontifical Saint Thomas Aquinas.

Also, I have had premedicine courses at Pasadena City College and veterinarian courses at Mount San Antonio College.

Anthropology- I have just finished studying 2010-2012 anthropology and philosophy at Pontifical University Saint Thomas Aquinas in Rome, Italy under the most brilliant Dominicans and Italian Professors.

Bible Studies

I have a Master of Divinity of Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary. Also, I just returned from Rome, Italy, studying philosophy at one of the 15 Vatican Schools, Pontifical Saint Thomas Aquinas.

I have studied the Bible over 40 years. Also, I have studied other world religions. I have done formal exegesis courses on the Biblical and world religions. I have worked on papers relating morality and "What it means to be human" today.

Classics

La Verne University is a top University in America where I earned an English Literature degree. While studying each course we were required to studied the classics and history of each time in humanity's existence.
Classics: I have had classic English Oxford training. Actually, at La Verne University I had three famous professors world renowned in English Classics from Oxford, Columbia University, and Yale. Furthermore, I have taken self-study classes of classical music and opera. I am a writer and continually study the classics. I am registered with Hillsdale College and study the classics presently.
Moreover, preparing my art students, such as my Opera student, I have to study the period of the classics to understand and coach the student.

Religion

I have studied the Bible over 40 years.
Also, I have studied other world religions.
I have done formal exegesis courses on the Biblical and world religions. I have worked on papers relating morality and "What it means to be human" today.

Religion: I have a Master's of Divinity and I have studied the Bible and religions for over 40 years. Furthermore, I have taken medieval literature and Middle Eastern and Western Civilization. While I studied English Literature I had to study each period. I have done exegesis on word studies in ancient cultures; therefore, I have had to see how subjects and words related to world religions. Today I study contemporary religions comparing, contrasting, syncretism, pluralism, and assimilation. Best Regards, Lisa Lucia A.
