Miss Carrie Goins, BA, MEd

Miss Carrie Goins, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance Learning Miss Goins completed a masters degree in history education. Her interest in history began in high school. "I realized that there was more to history than just what the textbook included. My favorite part of a history class was the research project, where we could choose our own topics and do as much research as we wanted." In college, she studied a variety of phases in history, but her favorite courses were in World History, especially Western Europe.

Her goal for her students is to see that history is much like a good story. It tells of God’s working in peoples’ lives, using even the most unlikely of people as His instruments. Historical events are not just things of the past to be pushed aside; they are actual incidents from which students of today can learn. Isaiah 46:9 gives us the main reason for studying history: "Remember the former things of old for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me."
