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
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.
June 18 - 24
Learn the secrets to a deeper relationship with Christ. (Spoiler: It's not about YOU doing more. It's about letting HIM work in you.)

July 2 - 8

July 30 - August 5
Get clear on what matters most to you and set up boundaries to protect your time & energy.
Each week's lessons will be delivered in audio format so that you can listen pretty much anytime, anywhere.
You'll receive a printable workbook with all the notes & printables you need to teach uplifted.
We'll complete the 6-week program together, so we can encourage & support each other in the journey.
Our daily devotional study will deepen your understanding and open your heart to the work God desires to do in your life & classroom.
I don't want anyone to worry about investing in this program. If for any reason you're unhappy with the results you get from Teach Uplifted, just let me know within 30 days and I'll issue you a full refund.
We will go through the program together starting June 18 through August 5. After that you will still have access to all the content for your own reference & review.
After you join you'll immediately get access to the community & introductory materials so we can be ready to go come June 18.
Don't worry - after we go through the program together you'll still have access to all the content. This means you can go back to review or refresh whenever you need it.
Absolutely not. This program will take place mostly on a private website. We will have an optional Facebook community for further discussion, but it is absolutely not necessary.
You'll still be able to join a small group outside of Facebook, and you'll also be able to discuss and ask questions directly on each lesson.
The 6-week program has two major components: the audio lessons & devotional study.
The audio lessons for each week total around 30 minutes (give or take). Many like to listen during their commute or while doing other tasks like cleaning.
The devotional study will take about 10-20 minute each day, depending on how quickly you read. I recommend completing the Teach Uplifted devotional during your regular devotional time instead of trying to do it in addition to your regular Bible reading.
Note: You'll also want to plan about an hour to go through the introductory material & get everything set before the program starts.
It may be awhile before Teach Uplifted is offered again. You can stay on the mailing list & I'll let you know when it's open again, but in the meantime you're going to face the new school year still frustrated & anxious.
Here's the thing: We often imagine that we'll be less busy in the future. But research shows that we're normally mistaken.
We think we'll have more time later, but we get there and realize that we don't. And even the summer flies by way too quickly, and we realize we didn't have time for nearly what we thought we would.
If you're feeling discouraged and frustrated, I strongly encourage you to join now. If you can't keep up with the schedule, it's no problem. You can totally go at your own pace.
But you'll get great benefit right away if you just get started & begin implementing the things you learn.
If for any reason Teach Uplifted is not what you expected, just send me an email within 30 days, and I will give you a prompt refund.
While Teach Uplifted deals with many practical strategies that would benefit everyone, the main focus of the program is on trusting God and allowing Him to encourage and uplift us. If you're not a Christian and have no interest in having a relationship with God, then the majority of this program won't be relevant to you.
However, if this whole concept sounds intriguing or if you've been wondering what it would be like to be a Christian, I invite you to go ahead & join us and see for yourself what Christianity is all about. (And I'm happy to refund your money if you decide the program just isn't for you.)
Unshakeable is a fantastic book that I highly recommend. It is super practical, but since it's not written specifically for Christians it doesn't deal much with the spiritual aspect.
Teach Uplifted is specifically designed for Christian teachers. And while you will definitely learn practical strategies, we realize we must first strengthen our relationship with Christ because He is the only one that can truly give us the lasting peace and joy even in the midst of the most challenging circumstances.
Because of this, I recommend starting with Teach Uplifted then continuing on to read Unshakeable afterwards.
Short answer - no. We'll be reading & discussing Hannah Whitall Smith's amazing little book The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life. Since this book is in the public domain, I'm able to include each day's reading for you online or via email.
If you'd prefer to read from a hard copy, you can pick up a paperback for around $6.00 on Amazon. (I'll include a link in the introduction to the program because there are two different versions & you'll want to get the one that matches our devotional study.)
Just send me an email & I'll be happy to answer them for you: firstname.lastname@example.org
