Renew Your Joy, 
Refresh Your Perspective

A 3-Day Challenge for Christian Teachers

Day 1: Claim God's Promises

As teachers, we are so often overwhelmed, frustrated, and surrounded by negativity. But this isn't how God intended us to live. Discover the joy & peace He wants to give you as you learn to trust and rest in Him.

Day 2: Trust & Surrender

If God wants to give us His joy, peace, and rest, why aren't we experiencing it? Discover the hidden reason why you're so stressed & frustrated - and the surprisingly simple cure. 

Day 3: Find Community

Too many Christian teachers make the mistake of trying to go it alone. Discover why this is a horrible idea - and how you can connect with like-minded educators.

Renew Your Passion for Teaching
by Finding Joy & Peace in Christ

Were these thoughts way too familiar this past year?

  • I'm so frustrated!
  • It's too hard to stay positive.
  • Teaching is just too overwhelming.
  • I have nothing left to give.
  • I can't handle all the negativity
  • Is it summer yet?

If so, you are not alone. I haven't met a teacher yet who doesn't struggle with feeling overwhelmed and frustrated from time to time. And we all have those secret (or not so secret) longings that summer would just hurry up & get here already.

But is this really the way God intended us to teach? Are we destined to be continually frustrated?   Perpetually discouraged by negativity?    Run dry because we've poured everything out & have nothing left to give?

Most certainly not!!!

Consider these Scriptures...

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. - Romans 15:13

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. - Matthew 11:28

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus - Phil. 4:7

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. - Isaiah 41:10

Clearly, God has something much better planned for us. He desires for us to teach with peace, joy, and (is it possible?) rest. 

Now before you're tempted to think, "These are wonderful Scriptures but I don't see how that could every happen for me as a teacher," let me ask you something. Do you really think God isn't powerful enough to fulfill these promises in your life?

You know He is able. He did it for Paul, for Job, for Joseph. And He's been faithful and good in your own life too.

So choose to believe that He can & will fulfill His promise for you.

Which brings us to the next challenge: "What about ME? What if I don't know how to find this peace, this rest, this joy in teaching? I certainly don't feel uplifted right now. So how on earth am I supposed to make this better?"

Don't worry. That's exactly the reason why we're here right now.

Teach Uplifted

A 6-week program to help Christian teachers renew their passion for teaching and find the peace, joy, and rest that God has promised them.

​When you join Teach Uplifted, you will...


You'll learn simple ways to renew your energy and stay inspired even in the mid-year doldrums.


You'll discover the power of rejecting wrong/negative thinking and replacing it with God's truth. And you'll find the incredible joy and peace that comes from an ever deepening relationship with Him.


You'll connect with fellow Christian teachers in a community that exists to encourage & uplift one another. 


When you're teaching uplifted, full of God's joy, peace, and rest, you will be more effective than ever and a shining light not only to your students but to your colleagues as well.

 When we're surrounded by negativity, dealing with poor administration, or facing our own fears and shortcomings, the solution isn't a magical change of our circumstances. Neither is it trying hard to overcome our own struggles.

The answer is found in Christ. In trusting Him completely, in surrendering not just our lives but our everyday moments to Him. 

Join us to discover the very real peace, joy, and rest that you can find in Christ, even in the most difficult and challenging circumstances.
