Learning from Jesus: Message 6

Anybody tired, overwhelmed or just plain discouraged with continuing to teach and explain the same things to your kids? I bet there are a few teachers who can relate here. I know there are times when it seems like nothing I say is getting through to my kids. For those times, I have learned to fall back on the message of the following passage: Matt 13:1-9.

“Whoever has ears, let them hear”

Jesus was teaching large crowds and he told them many things. However, the point we can take from this passage is that some received the message and some did not. In other words, we can teach our hearts out and not every one of our students will receive it the same. We should not be discouraged when they all don’t get it the first time. We must continue to do our best to deliver the information, and keep planting the seeds of knowledge that we have been given to plant. If we see ourselves as planters, then we will not focus on whether or not the harvest comes.

Keep planting, my friends! Be encouraged that the harvest is in his hands and not ours!

In Love,


Do Everything 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!
