My February Prayer

Winter time as a teacher is filled with so many things. From holiday parties, to testing, to open house, we find ourselves working relentlessly to make the most of every moment. Nonetheless, as we go along this journey, I encourage you to take refuge in the one who helps us hold it all together. Here is my prayer:

Dear Lord,

I want to lift up my fellow colleagues today. I lift up their exhaustion, their worries, their frustrations and challenges. Some of them have health issues, family concerns, and some are dealing with things in the classroom that seem too much to bear. There are even those who wonder how much longer they can take, given the pressures of their situation. Right now Lord, I simply pray for their overall well-being, and I pray that you continue to give them the strength and endurance to finish what you have started in them. (Phil. 1:6)

In Jesus Name. Amen.

Love, Your Colleague

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!
