Davis College - Pursue God

Internships that Impact Lives – Sara Petzke, Class of 2012, Christian Counseling Program

Posted in Blog

“We wanted to get the whole family involved at our Dessert Celebration this year, so we created the Kids Program, which was a huge success with almost 30 kids in attendance! Our goal was to inspire the next generation to promote a culture of life, and to teach them that every life matters to God. During the lesson the kids heard about baby Moses and how God valued his life. They learned that every person’s life is important and to care about others. They also played fun team-building games, decorated a flower pot and potted a crocus and enjoyed delicious cupcakes! Everyone had a great time and left ready to Inspire Life!” – Written by Sarah Petzke

pic05Sara Petzke has been our student intern this spring. As a senior counseling student at Davis College, she fulfilled her requirements serving as an intern for 80 hours at Life Choices Center. Her main task was to develop and oversee the new Kids Program at the Dessert Celebration. Sara researched ideas to use with the kids for games and a Bible lesson. While not very familiar with working with kids, Sara does like to plan things, and had a lot of fun with this event! As much as she likes to plan, Sara’s time at Life Choices Center has taught her to be flexible as different circumstances can come up.

She was able to sit in on pregnancy tests with clients and even ultrasounds! One of Sara’s favorite moments during her internship was when one ultrasound client saw her baby on the monitor and informed us, “Well, you just saved a life!” We were glad that Sara had the opportunity to Inspire Life with us and wish her well as she graduates! – Life Choices Center
