I love this time of year, when we get to give extra appreciation where it is due! I encourage all educators to lift up one another this week in whatever way you can. Even an extra smile or kind word can go a long way when lifting up a colleague. I woke up this morning with this on my heart, so I wrote a little poem to encourage teachers everywhere. Enjoy!

A World Without Teachers

Desolate and gloomy things would be

No one to start the learning with the ABC’s

Barren and bland our minds would stagnate

No one to spark the thirst for knowledge that opens the gate

Uneducated and unskilled our communities would unfold

No one to continue the cycle of education, ignorance would be bold

Unlearned and unloved our kids would be left in the dust

No one to give the next generation a future to put their trust

But God in all his wisdom decided to create a group to help us all

He called them “Teachers”, and he equipped them so that our societies would never fall

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Love,

Mrs. Bowers

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!
