Spiritual Gymnastics.

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

Andre had been suspended from gym class for 2 days. While the other students were in gym Andre and I were at my desk talking together and reflecting on James 4:1-3. I felt a prompting to ask Andre if he wanted to invite the Holy Spirit into his heart and declare Jesus Lord of his […]

Tow Away Zone

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

We had our first unknown car parked in our lot over the weekend. It was still there on Monday. I asked around and nobody knew whose it was. It looked a little sketchy and there was no note, phone call or anything and California plates. So, I had it towed. Later that day, a desperate […]

I’m not listening to you!

Friday, February 20th, 2015

I came in the office the other day and found a student sitting behind the comfy chair. He had an angry face. He was clearly not himself. I began to rebuke evil spirits and commanded them to leave. He plugged his ears and said, “I’m not listening to you!” I asked the Lord what I […]

can we talk about music?

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Yesterday there was a small fight between two kids after PE. Thank you Jesus, it resolved quickly. I sat to talk it through with Pat and it went well. Pat then asked me politely if we could talk about music sometime. At first I wasn’t sure if he meant about songs or rap he liked. […]

You are a Princess

Today during worship there were some sibling issues between Aneasa and Desmond.  I had Aneasa stay in my classroom during her lunch recess for her consequence.  When she came in, she began speaking with an attitude.  I immediately made her lay on the floor until she could submit to peace and kindness from the Holy […]

Prison Visit

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

I never thought I would be making prison visits to parents of students that we have at Christian school. But then Christ said, “Behold, I make all things new.” Well, nothing could be more obvious after my visit to Trina last Thursday. Me and Amy learned lots on our first visit. We walked up to […]

Classroom Pledge

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Recently the 2nd/3rd graders created a classroom plan together for how to stand up against bullying. Together as a class they brainstormed what they could do when seeing bad behavior or bullying happen. One student said that when we see bullying happen or have a conflict with someone else we should always go to God […]

How could Cain MURDER Able…oh….wait….

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

God always has this super duper amazing way of linking things together for His good through the school and it never ceases to amaze me and the kids.  Our latest amazement has been the connection of our new school verse and our daily devotions.  We are reading a devotion book on heroes of the bible. […]

God is most proud!

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

This afternoon I was complementing Anthony aloud from my desk about how proud I have been of him the last two days because he has been nothing but a joy to have in class. He’s been polite, very sweet, and using awesome self control. With zero prompting, one of the children chimed in “great job […]
