"The Children Without a Mother and a Father"
Each class that I have taught has been different-- children are different. Last years class was very tender to the things of the Lord. I LOVED that about them! This class, until recently, hasn't showed that side. But, lately, the things they pray for during prayer time has been so touching. One little girl this week prayed for "the children without a mother and a father." Now, I don't know where that came from but WOW! It was so touching! I just had to share on what came "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.
