I knew there was a need for more teachers in the Sunday school program and although it's been a while since I've read many of the Bible stories, I'm excited to learn them alongside my first grader, Emma. During their formative years, our children are sponges and hang on to every ounce of information presented to them but also feel really special when we take the time to be a part of their journey. I hope to have a positive impact not only on Emma but every child that crosses my path in the Sunday School Program so each one of them knows they are an amazing gift from God.
I believe everyone has a gift to share. Some people know what those gifts are and some have to dig deep and step out of their comfort zones to find them. A few years back, Amy asked me if I was interested in teaching Sunday School. At the time, I had no children and no experience teaching school so I was a little uncomfortable taking on the task. However, having been blessed with the ability to speak in front of groups of people, I thought it might work out. So I took a leap and said some prayers and started teaching Sunday School to 2/3 graders. It was a fun experience and I was able to share the Word of God with the young people in our church. I took a break when Lillian was born but now that she is old enough to attend Sunday School, I am getting back into teaching again. This year I will be working with 4/5 graders. I look forward to sharing and learning with them.
