"I Have Super Power Brains"
I had the opportunity to babysit "my favorite kids" this weekend. There are three of them (ages 8,6,4). They are the children of a very good friend of mine. When it was time for bed, I was putting the middle child (My Little Man) to bed. I laid down with him and talked to him for a few minutes. Then I said, "Do you know what?" He said, "What?" I said, "I love you! Did you know that?" He said, "Yes." I then said, "How did you know that?" He said, "I have Super Power Brains." How cute! Well, that is "Out of the Mouth of Babes."
I am a born again Christian. That is the most important thing to know about me. Being a Christian is the greatest honor and privilege in a person's life (my life!). Being a Christian, I sought and followed God's will for my life. He gave me a love for children and led me to be a teacher. I'm not just a teacher, but I have the awesome and amazing privilege to be a Christian school teacher. I teach at the Christian school associated with my church in Richmond, Virginia. I am a first grade teacher, and I love it! I love working with and teaching "my children." But, I love most serving the Lord and teaching these kids that God has given me more about Him. What a blessing! Now, being a Christian isn't always easy. It is a constant learning experience. On my blogs, I share with you some of the great things I get to experience from working with children--- "Out of the Mouth of Babes." I am also showing how I am Learning to Lean on God's Arms. That is a personal "diary" of sorts of things the Lord is teaching me, as His child.
