Hallmark “Home and Family”: Working Moms

May 3, 2016
VIDEO: Interview with Darryn Willoughby, Ph.D., associate professor and director of the Exercise Biochemical and Nutrition Lab in Baylor’s Robbins College of Health & Human Sciences, during a segment on the challenges of balancing work and motherhood. A video that went viral showed Dr. Willoughby, who had picked up the fussy baby of one of his students, Marine veteran Katy Humphrey, whose babysitter canceled at the last minute, and without missing a beat, he continued lecturing for the next 50 minutes while holding Millie. In the interview, Willoughby said, “Being at a Christian institution, it's all about reaching out and helping and blessing others, loving and caring for others in any way we can. And so this was simply just a way in which God moved me to do that on this given day. And like I said, just praise God and giving Him all the glory for being able to bless Katy and Millie."

Quoted is Andy Hogue, Ph.D., director of the Philanthropy and Public Service Program and a senior lecturer in the Honors Program in Baylor’s Honors College. "One of the things that we are trying to teach is how a community works. How a community thrives. The variety of ways of which that happens, and not just that but also how we might contribute to that, and part of that is through our time and our service, but it's also through financial means. So, one of the things we are trying to instill is a life of generosity," Hogue said. (Lori Fogleman, assistant vice president of Baylor Media Communications, facilitated media coverage of this event.
