Teach Uplifted

Your 6-week path to banish stress
and teach with the joy of the Lord.

teaching is tough. you probably feel...

  • Overwhelmed with the sheer volume of work & responsibilities
  • > Stressed about problems you don't know how to solve
  • > Frustrated with students, admins, or colleagues that make teaching more difficult
  • > Worried you're close to burn out and might have to stop teaching

You want to feel positive - to be positive.  But instead, you too often find yourself stressed and irritable. 

You love God, and you love your students. But sometimes the challenges are so oppressively overwhelming that you want to hide away in your closet and binge dark chocolate rather than face your first period class.

You're holding onto the hope that things will get better, but in the back of your mind you're wondering but what if they don't!?

Are you ready for a truth bomb?

We cannot afford to wait for our circumstance to change. Instead, we must learn to trust God in our challenges and experience His joy, peace, and rest despite them.

3 steps to banish stress & teach with joy

Sometimes trusting God is easier said than done. So how exactly do we make that happen?
In Teach Uplifted, we'll learn to trust in God and rest in His goodness with these three steps:

1

Discover

DISCOVER
what the Bible says about God’s incredible work in your life so that you can stop stressing and start resting in His promises.

2

Meditate

MEDITATE
on God’s goodness, sovereignty, and grace so that these truths sink down into your heart & change the way you think & respond.

3

Abide

ABIDE
in Christ so that His joy & grace shine through you  each day in the classroom.

Your six-week path to banish stress and teach with joy - even in this crazy 2020 year!

join over 1,800 teachers who've transformed their relationship with god and found peace through trials

Take Diane, for example, a 1st grade teacher who joined Teach Uplifted during her 5th week of virtual teaching under COVID. Here's what she says:

"I was finding that I was increasingly sad and overwhelmed by what I was trying to accomplish. I knew I needed this course - especially at this time. 

I have been able to consciously say "Your will be done" at times when I really wanted to complain or even cry because everything has just felt difficult. 

By remembering that God IS in control, that there is NOTHING that is going on that is a surprise to Him, and that if I can say "your will be done,"  it truly lightens the load and helps my focus be where it needs to be. 

Just like Peter in the storm ... when he took his eyes off Jesus and looked at the storm, he started to sink. This has helped me keep my eyes on Jesus and has kept me walking. Thank you!"


"I've learned to wholeheartedly trust in the Lord, and to understand that struggles in teaching can be overcome if we approach them with a God-filled heart instead of a self-serving heart."


- Lynn, kindergarten teacher

What teachers are Saying...

Every teacher and Christian should take this course and read the book. My relationship with God has strengthened and I have seen results in my life in just six weeks from abiding in Christ instead of trying to do it all myself. I feel I am calmer; I have not been as quick to anger this summer; I am not constantly worried about what-ifs.

Before joining Teach Uplifted, I felt called by God to teach but struggled with learning to trust the Holy Spirit to lead me at school. I am still in the middle of the study, but I am feeling less anxious. I am able to work productively and then leave school whether my work is finished or not. I am trusting that all will get done. I have been able to participate in some challenging meetings and parent conferences and have felt peaceful and faithful that all will be well.

Before I started this course I was completely fed up with teaching. I was tired and needed a break and I didn't know if this profession was where I belonged. My biggest takeaway from this program is that no matter what God is in control and I need to surrender everything to him. My worries, my control, and my job need to be given to God and I need to learn to rely on Him. Everything is done for the good of His will. Now, I am praying to God more and trying to retrain my mind to trust in Him and see my challenges as part of His plan for me.

Please join Teach Uplifted! If more teachers knew how to live a life of peace, joy, and surrender our public school systems would be bright lights in this world. I took the course over the summer and it gave me the opportunity to reflect over the past year and recognize how different things can be going forward. I am much more at peace and rest and excited for a brand new school year.

So many times we say, yes, I prayed about this or I gave x, y, and z to the Lord, but I'm still worried, unsure, etc. We have taken our concerns to the Lord, but we have chosen to pick them back up.


Through Teach Uplifted, I've developed a further in-depth understanding of taking my burdens to the Lord and leaving them there. My trust in God has increased exponentially! It is absolutely worth your time and money!

I was so discouraged and had lost my spiritual focus when I heard about Teach Uplifted. I was ready to give up, but this study has re-energized my spiritual life. As a result, I am now better able to share with my students how God is working in my life.

About the Author

Hi! I’m Linda Kardamis, former teacher and founder of Teach 4 the Heart. I know firsthand how hard teaching can be. You know that bit about hiding from your first period class? Yeah, I didn’t make that up. That was totally me! (minus the chocolate, unfortunately)

But then I found A Christian’s Secret to a Happy Life, and my outlook changed completely. I stopped viewing challenges as hardships and started accepting them as God’s perfect will for me that day. The peace and joy that resulted were such a stark contrast to the stress and annoyance beforehand. And now, when the frustrations return, I know where to run for help.

Linda Kardamis

I knew I couldn’t keep these lessons to myself, so I assembled them into the Teach Uplifted Devotions and created the full program around it. Since then, they’ve helped hundreds of teachers learn to trust God and teach with His joy, even in the midst of struggles. And I pray Teach Uplifted will do the same for you, too.

don't worry!
It won't take too much time.

We know you're busy, so we've designed Teach Uplifted to be easy to complete. Here's how it works:

Plan to use the daily devotionals as your regular devotions time. If you try to add them on to what you're already doing, it may be too much. But if you use them as your daily devotions, you'll find deep refreshment in God & His truths, without feeling overwhelmed.

Then, listen to the weekly audio lessons whenever you'd like during the week. They're only around 30 minutes each week (give or take), and since they're audio, they're easy to complete while cooking, cleaning, walking, etc.

You'll also want to plan about an hour to go through the introductory material & get everything set before the program starts.

That's it! You'll get the truths & refreshment you need with just these two main aspects.  Everything else (like the Facebook group and Q&A videos) is just a bonus and can be used as much or as little as you'd like.

​What People are Saying...

Since taking Teach Uplifted, I am less stressed because I believe God is in control - whether the situation looks like it or not. When anxious I try to remember to check my "surrender level" (have I surrendered this situation to God and left it in His very capable hands?).


If you're considering joining Teach Uplifted, do it! I've already recommended it to other teachers.

Before Teach Uplifted, I saw teaching as inevitably stressful and time-consuming. It wasn't something I got joy from but something I was burdened by and felt stuck in.


God really used this course to do a complete restructuring of my soul. I have a 20-year habit of working too much and giving too much of myself to my responsibilities. It's so easy for me to stress out. So easy to worry. I know God is the only One who can humble me and teach me how to let Him take my responsibilities and to work with an attitude of trusting Him completely and refusing to worry.

JOIN TEACH UPLIFTED!!!!! This is one of the best studies I have done for ME. I have grown emotionally and spiritually!! I am sad it has come to the end.


When I began this study, I felt empty inside. Where was my Joy? I was so discouraged and had so many doubts about myself, my teaching abilities, my relationship with God and my relationships with others. Now, I am feeling my confidence and joy again. Yes, today was a difficult day. Students will not listen, parents grumbling but I am singing inside again. Thank You Teach Uplifted for helping me get back on the path God has planned for me.
