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


Are any of these thoughts way too common?

  • I'm so frustrated!
  • It's too hard to stay positive.
  • I'm so worried & stressed about the future
  • 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?   Bound by fear and anxiety?  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 ever 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.

Introducing....
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...

1.
RENEW YOUR PASSION & ENERGY

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

2.
FACE CHALLENGES WITH PEACE, NOT FEAR

You'll discover how to truly trust God in difficult circumstances - and the great peace that comes from allowing Him to carry your burdens instead of trying to figure out everything yourself.

3.
FORM RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS WHO WILL ENCOURAGE YOU

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

4.
MAKE A BIGGER DIFFERENCE 

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 harder 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.

What People are Saying...


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.


Debbie F.

Through taking Teach Uplifted, I've become more relaxed, positive, happy and secure. Teach Uplifted has taught me how to rely on Christ and not on myself. This is an ongoing process, but it has been of such tremendous benefit in reducing the stress of teaching.

If you're thinking about joining Teach Uplifted, I would say go for it. It is life transforming! Even if you are enjoying teaching and not discouraged at all this will still be of great benefit. The program is brilliant. I have loved every part of it.


Caroline C.

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.


Denise Treadway

In addition to the main program, you'll also receive these amazing bonuses!

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.

So often we struggle and strive through each day but Teach Uplifted has helped me to let go of things, re-evaluate my priorities. I now recognize that it is not about me striving but about learning to let go and trusting my Heavenly Father.

Teach Uplifted is so relevant that I have recommended it to others.

If you are struggling with why you're (still) at your school or need a healthy way to let go of negative feelings, anxious thoughts, worry...this is the best course you can take. I was so angry when I didn't find another job this past spring, but through Teach Uplifted I have begun to see that God needs me to stay at this school for His purpose. Teach Uplifted allowed me to surrender to God and give my full and complete trust to Him. It's a great place to share ideas, pray with other teachers, and know you are NOT alone in your struggles.

I can not tell you how much I have enjoyed Teach Uplifted so far. God has definitely used it to teach me and to help me draw closer to Him. Thanks!

If you are like me - losing your joy and passion for teaching - this is for you. If you want to just draw near to God, this is for you as well. For me this course refocused my mind, heart and soul on Christ. I need to be in Christ daily and that should spill over into teaching. This course also gave practical, helpful tips/ways for different situations that you may have in your class.

I am so glad I participated in Teach Uplifted. It has helped me to grow spiritually and changed my perspective about teaching. I warmly recommend it.

Before Teach Uplifted, I was feeling overwhelmed and anxious. I've learned I need to trust and surrender every moment of every day to my Lord. He is the one ultimately in control of my life and my classroom. I can do nothing without Him.

Through Teach Uplifted, I've found some peace and I am challenged to really rely on God more in my classroom. I was also encouraged by several members in my Voxer group. I also feel a bond to them, especially those who experience some of the same stresses and anxieties that I do as a teacher.

God uses this program to change my attitude toward teaching. I have joy in teaching again. The program is rooted in scripture. It very practically addresses the stressful things that teachers deal with every day.

Jennifer D.

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!

profile-pic
Melissa P.

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 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.

Teach Uplifted gets to the heart of how we should live as Christians. The examples from the book and the videos are extremely practical and encouraging. I've learned that God can be trusted to handle everything. He will do mighty things---not only for others, but also for me.

If you're wondering if you should join Teach Uplifted, join! If you allow God to work, He will change you through this course. It is time well worth it.

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.

This program was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time in my life! I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God led me to you, your sight, and this program. It has helped me to become encouraged again in my teaching and my life. I am so grateful and thankful to have had this opportunity and for the total transformation of my outlook on teaching and life.

To give God everything and fully surrender to His will for you daily.

I have changed as a teacher by stopping worry where it begins and taking it to Jesus.

It is amazing, you will learn pratctical strategies you can use as a teacher each day to help you teach with more joy and less worry.

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.

Since taking Teach Uplifted I'm much less stressed because I'm letting God work out the problems!

This study offers everything you might expect and more if you attended a women's conference or retreat: music, devotions, Bible study, workbooks, fellowship, a great speaker/leader (Linda). The 6 + weeks worth of materials will draw you closer to the Lord.

I've been thoroughly enjoying Teach Uplifted. What a difference it's made in how I approach my work! It's bringing me closer to God and helping me grow in Him, so the difference is felt in all areas of my life, not just work. I'm sooooo glad I joined.

I've loved every part of Teach Uplifted, especially the audio portions. This can be a life changing study if you will be open to what is presented.

I've learned I don't have to bear these burdens - I don't even have to say Jesus will help me - HE'S got this if I will let Him. I have bathed this school year in a lot more prayer before school even starts. I will choose not to let worry, stress and busyness get in the way of my walk with God.

Amanda S.

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.

Barbara V.

Before I started Teach Uplifted, I knew I was passionate about teaching, but very disenchanted and discouraged because of my particular school environment. Now, I'm now working on reorganizing my time, which has helped me so much. I only stay at school past 4 if there's a scheduled meeting! I even changed my school bag to be too small to lug home any textbooks, just in case I'm tempted to bring home more than I can handle in an evening. Ha!

I'm also praying every day to trust that my current situation is by God's ordination. I love the quote you shared from Andrew Murray--"I am here by God's appointment, in His keeping, under His training, for His time."

Gina V.

The devotional readings had a huge impact on my spiritual growth. I enjoyed the reflections, reading others, and listening to the weekly Q & A's.

My biggest change has been seeing teaching as a ministry. I love knowing that I work for Jesus and not man. I still have a lot of work ahead of me, but I know God will work in me and through me. I'm not alone and I can trust Him to direct my path. I also find myself praying more for my students.

This was such a life-changing experience and the wisdom I gained has transformed my spiritual life in such a profound way. For this I am truly grateful.
