This is a blog written by a first grade teacher. I am sharing funny stories and insights given by my students and other children I am privileged to work with. I am sharing talk from "out of the mouth of babes."

Telling a Friend About Jesus
Today, one of my girls told me that she went to Barnes & Nobles this weekend. She said that at Barnes & Nobles she made a new friend. I love that about this age; they make friends so quickly. She told me that while she was talking to her new friend that she told her new friend about Jesus. How exciting is that! I was excited to hear that she did something (tell someone about Jesus) we talk about in class-- not keeping Jesus a "secret." I was excited about the news, and I wanted to share with you something a "babe" did.
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.
