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."

I help teach in K-4 Sunday school in the mornings for church. We are finishing the Easter story. Today, the teacher asked the children to say some things that will be in Heaven. One girl said, "A scooter." Another said, "Streets of gold." She was right; there will be streets of gold. The funniest one, I think, is when a girl told us something that she thought was in Heaven. She said, "I Pods, so I can listen to music." Keep in mind these are four and five year olds. I laughed out loud when I heard that. Then she said, "'I'm going to listen to my I Pod when (student's name) rides her scooter." Precious and FUNNY!! Well, it made me laugh, so I wanted to share with you 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.
