Crazy! This year has flown by as usual! Joys and pains have filled our hearts, and yet we keep on pushing! Of course, this time of year comes with kids getting antsy for a week off, and challenges for us to keep them engaged. Either way, we work hard to be the consummate professional that we are expected to be. I put some thoughts in a poem for my teacher friends, and my prayer is that you are encouraged to keep on keepin’ on!


Soon we’ll say goodbye to the month of October you see

It will be remembered as part of our teaching history

We’ve worked hard so far to prepare our kids, no doubt

So, they can know what each subject is really all about

But we know it’s not easy, it requires GRIT every single day

Only a teacher knows what it takes from Aug until May

For now, keep on pushing, only 3 weeks to Thanksgiving Break

Remember you are a part of an incredible profession, and within your DNA you have whatever it takes!

With Love,

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!
