Key Takeaways

- Prayer and the Word of God are powerful. 

-It’s not just pastors who do ministry! We are ALL the body of Christ, the light into the darkness, and the living letter to the world.

-God is in public schools because He has placed us- Christians- there.

-Unity in diversity; we are called to unity, but that doesn't mean we are all the same.

-When you get offended by something, take it to the Lord and ask Him how you should respond to represent Him well, rather than reacting out of anger or defense.

-You can't do everything; stop and make intentional choices to do what matters most to you.

-Rather than comparing ourselves to others, think: “Am I giving my best in what the Lord has put me in?”

-Our God is so great He can make plan B be even better than plan A. There’s no mistake He can’t course-correct and bless. 

-If God can feed the 5,000, He can take the little we have and abundantly provide.

I believe that when God calls us to teach, He promises the strength & wisdom to do it well. All we need to do is keep learning, growing, and depending on Him. I'm here to provide practical advice and Biblical encouragement so you'll have the confidence and perspective to not only inspire your students but reach their hearts as well.
