September is almost gone

The kids came in like a whirlwind, excited to start the year. I think we were just as excited because a new year always starts with a sense of hope. This hope makes us believe that something we do will spark something amazing within a student. It just might be the year when something super special happens. It’s one of the things that I look forward to as an educator. You never know when something magnificent will occur. It might be a big moment of truth when a student reaches new heights, or a small, yet powerful moment when you connect with a student who seemed unreachable. Either way the potential is there, and it exists in a classroom like no other place. Anyway, to jumpstart this year, I penned this little poem just for my teacher friends. It’s called…September. Enjoy!


Five weeks in and excitement is in the air

Labor Day has passed and well, we’re getting there

Fall is upon us and the temperature will begin to drop

But kids yearning for recess will never ever stop

And the teachers are yearning for something different altogether

Just a calm and peaceful day with perfect Texas weather

Teachers, remember who you are and what you’re called to be

A light in a dark world, maybe the only one your kids will get to see

Happy September!

I am a wife, mother of three, poet, author, teacher, and speaker. The first ministry God has given me started at home with my husband of 27 years. We have grown up together and become dear friends over the years. The Lord added three kids to the ministry, Elijah, Nehemiah and Amaziah. They have blessed us beyond measure in so many ways. We pray that we will be examples of the kingdom who they will want to always follow. In addition to family ministry, for the last 20 years I have taught Language Arts in private, public and home school settings. Throughout my years of teaching, God has given me a sincere heart for teachers. Therefore, I am on a divine mission to help the world appreciate and support teachers. It is an honor for me to encourage teachers by using the knowledge, skills, love of poetry, experience as a teacher that the Lord has given and match it with wisdom from the master teacher, Jesus Christ. I had the privilege to express some of this wisdom in my book entitled, “The Unforgettable Teacher’s Journey.” In this book I write about the truth of the miraculous ministry of Jesus to encourage and inspire teachers in their journey. Each chapter paints a beautiful picture of how the journey of a teacher is remarkably similar to the ministry of Jesus. Teachers will be inspired by the eloquently crafted biblical truths as well as the peaceful poetry that is strategically positioned throughout this book. I pray that all that I do, whether in family or public ministry, be a blessing to those who hear it!
