My name is Lydia Luurtsema. I was homeschooled K-12th grade and attended FA the entire time. I love to run and keep my body in shape and am so excited to share some of this passion in Health and Fitness class. After high-school, I took a gap year and did a Discipleship Training School with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) where I studied the Bible intensively and traveled to six countries serving the nations and sharing Jesus. I am currently in college online for Crisis Counseling and serve as an on-call firefighter with the Byron Township Fire Department. Eventually, I look forward to serving overseas as a missionary in the Muslim world. I love Jesus and people and I look forward to helping equip the students with the necessary knowledge to stay healthy and fit as they continue through life and complete the plan and purpose God has for each of them.
