I thought perhaps my readers would like to have a glimpse into the life of Chris Breva? Chris Breva is my pseudonym. It is a legally adopted pseudonym, but still a pseudonym. The people I live and work with know me as Marvin Schrebe. By trade I am a chaplain and a certified peer recovery support specialist. I am also a full-time graduate student taking classes online at Regent University in the Master of Divinity program. I am getting ready to officially begin my internship, which will be at the West Virginia Veterans Home ((WVVH) in Barboursville WV, where I also live. I am looking forward to the internship. My vision for the WVVH has been to fully establish a chaplaincy program and now that is coming about. I am developing the chaplaincy from the ground up.

Along with being the chaplain of the WVVH I am also the editor of the Bugler, the official newsletter of the WVVH as well as a peer recovery support specialist here. I run a voluntary group on Thursday afternoons that is aimed at self-improvement. No matter where we are in life there is always room for improvement and the group focuses on areas that we can all improve in such as anger management, time management, active listening, etc.

My last responsibility is floor leader for the WVVH. I get up every morning at 4:30 to make rounds with the duty nurse for bed checks. I also take care of any minor spills that happen in the hallways during the day and do some light housekeeping.

As you can see I keep myself pretty busy. I believe a cramped schedule is a healthy schedule as it keeps us sharp. I spent a good deal of my life being a drain on society. I plan to spend the rest of my life making amends for that.
