Today and every day is a great day that our Father has given us, His children. How awesome it is to recognize this by diving into God's Word. Every day the children of St. Paul School have the opportunity to hear the Word, speak the Word, and live the Word; not only in Religion class, but woven into the studies of all subjects. The learning goes beyond their regular classes also! When our students are playing, conversing, and working together, teachers are constantly helping children to understand that the love Jesus has freely given us is that love we are to share with one another. So from disagreements to having exciting moments our students are taught that when God is honored and Christ is the central focus of how we can live out our actions we become better people. Most of all, we live the Life that God has given us! This is the mission I have in my 3rd grade class. 

In reading and discussing the book "What Would Jesus Do?" in the beginning of the school year, we hear of conflicts children face and how they respond to those conflicts in a God-pleasing way. Then together as a class we reflect upon some of our own conflicts and respond to the words 'what would Jesus do'  in order to focus how attitudes and actions can be dealt with in a Christ-like manner. When we finish the book, we continue this approach throughout the year whenever the need calls for it.

 My husband, Jim, and I just celebrated our 32nd anniversary in June. We love traveling the United States by car, especially visiting areas of rich history. We have three sons who are officially young adults, ages 19 - 25. My interests are walking, crafting, reading, and playing piano and the organ. In fact, I have been an organist for 40 years and still going strong. In the future I would love to make quilts, but for now, I will stick with sharing the JOY of Jesus with my students and their families as I continue to serve as one of St. Paul's teachers.
