August Week 1 | An Idea for Every Day

(Updated 7/15/2022) The final month of summer is upon us. I hope it finds you well, with summertime goals accomplished and plans for the fall filling your mind. Although, I have to say, I was not prepared to see Halloween costumes and pumpkin spice coffee already shelved at stores. Anyone else feel like it was March just yesterday? It has been a year! This summer has definitely been eventful for us. Our highlight from last week was witnessing my brother's wedding. It was beautiful! And we felt honored to witness it.

July Week 5 | An Idea for Every Day

(Updated 7/14/2022) As each new month approaches, I am convinced that it catches me by surprise every time. August looms leaders. We're here to help you get ready for it.

July Week 4 | An Idea for Every Day

(Updated 7/8/2022) As we near the end of July and the days get shorter, we realize our time for summer is coming to an end too. Likely, thoughts of school are buzzing through your head: "How's it going to be different this year? What can I do to make my learner feel safe and secure? How long will my well-laid plans last?" These questions zoom through my head too, leader. And we need to muster our courage and lead with confidence knowing God goes before us and walks alongside us. We are never alone. Standing in the love and grace of God, we lead with confidence knowing that because God is fearless, we can be fearless too! We will face this next school year, with all of it's uncertainty and unfamiliarity, with confidence - because we lean on Our Rock who never changes. Taking confidence in God as a cue, our learners will bloom. He knows the plans He has for us, and we trust in that. Period. In an effort to aid you in finding encouragement for each passing day, we've
