We want to encourage you as much as possible - so take a little time to read a daily devotional - Monday through Friday.

Enjoy and be encouraged!

Good morning!

Psalms 118:24

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Dear friends,

As I walked this morning the birds were rejoicing, my dog was rejoicing, the sun was rejoicing! Why do we as humans not rejoice when are eyes are open? What does slumber bring that a day with the Lord cannot?

The Lord has put something on my heart that I must share with you.

 As this school year comes to an end, so does this ministry. 16 years ago I began teaching. And with that new beginning in my life so began this ministry. I will be starting a new position with our district next year. Change is on the horizon. My last child will be going to college, my occupation looks different. New exciting things. God has clearly showed me that the end of this ministry has also come. I know he has equipped each one of you to follow Hebrews 3:13

Encourage one another daily as long as it is called today so that none of you may be hardened by sins deceitfulness.

Encourage those around you. Open Gods word daily and share what he is teaching you. Walk as a blessed, loved child of God.

Know that my heart loves each of you so much. But I also know I must be obedient to my Lord. My sister shared with me to always take the perspective that God has some beautiful gift waiting for you when he takes something away.

It has been a wonderful learning journey for me. I will continue to meet with Jesus everyday. I pray you each will as well.

It is hard for me to type these words...I have written them in my head many times. I am not sure I can share what God has shown me through this ministry. But I am so thankful!  He is so big and so mighty and so gentle and soooo loving!

May God hold your hands throughout your lifetime. May his word lead you on the life he has for you. May his Spirit bring guidance comfort and counsel as you need it.

Love the Lord your God with all you have.

Live a life of gratitude!

Go make disciples!

In Him
