“I have taught pre-schoolers with whom the class turned out to spending the whole service with them.

I’ve taught Seniors who have walked with God longer than I had been alive.

Group home residents, who though could not attend mindfully, for the full hour participated wholeheartedly.

Each group provided a unique challenge and blessing to me as I had to use different skill sets to make the lesson relevant to them.  But at the end of the day the greatest joy was to see when a new revelation was made by the student regardless of which group they belonged to.”

Favorite Verse:  Philippians 4:4-13

Rejoice in the Lord alway: [and] again I say, Rejoice.  Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord [is] at hand.  Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.  Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.  But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.  Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, [therewith] to be content.  I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
