Learning from Jesus: Message 1

It is the beginning of the year and for some of us, there is joy and excitement as we look into our classrooms. At the same time, we see the many challenges that are before us. Some of our kids are so academically low, we wonder how they will be able to grow. Some of the behaviors we see, we wonder how they came to be.
Knowing all of this, we must go to the master teacher, Jesus, who said in Matthew 11:29: Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me. Yoke means to be connected to, so he is telling us that if we stick with him he will teach us. This is exactly what we will do, from this day forward. We will look at the master teacher, and learn from his life and ministry. We will take these lessons and apply them to our daily walk in the classroom. Our first lesson will come from Matthew 9:35-36:

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

On my next post, I will break this scripture down, and find out what the master teacher wants us to learn from it. For now, just know that you are in the right place at the right time.

Until next time…blessings on you and on those that are under your care.

In 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!
