I Stand All Amazed.

Some days are easier than others. This is how it has always been since the day I was born, and this is how it will be until the day I take my last breath. I will spend countless hours lost in a world where people love to hate more than they love to love. I don't understand how things change so quickly, nor will I ever. There is a hope burning deep inside my heart, a hope that keeps me hanging on to the things that I have faith in. My love for our Savior seems to consume me like a burning building. All it takes is one flame, and my heart loves him more and more. What a honorable man Jesus Christ was. He was a man of selfless charity, a faith in all people, and had a love for those who even turned their heads away from him. He is a person we all should strive to be like. A person who is meek, humble, giving, hopeful, selfless, and kind. I could go on all day talking about this great man who is the key to so many different faiths. Striving to live our lives in a way that Christ would is never a easy task; They are those days where some are easier than others. Sacrifice is needed and you'll probably have to give up people and things that you love, but isn't that worth it? For someone to say that you are a Christ-like person would be the greatest honor anyone could ever receive. Winning that game, listening to that awful song, making perfect grades, does any of that matter if you are Christ-like? Not one bit. Okay, so winning that game and making perfect grades would be pretty nice, but we should all try to put CHRIST before anything else. Oh how I love this man. I know he loves me and I know he loves you, and that gives us all hope to smile on those hard days and to make it through (:

The Prayer of a Teacher After the First Day of School.

I cried today. Lately, I haven't been much of a cryer. My mom will tell you that it takes a lot to make me cry. Today I cried. I cried because today was the first day of school. I am exhausted. My feet hurt, my face is greasy, and I'm not sure how I smell. I smiled as 22 brand new students walked into classroom 120. I felt the high energy of the kids who wished summer was at least another month longer. I tried to explain the rules and procedures but forgot how difficult that can be. This year will prove to be the biggest challenge in my teaching career. I miss my kids from last year, still. I hope the impact they've left on me will never change. Today, I write down a prayer for myself and for all my teachers out there. I pray that I will make a difference. I pray that tomorrow when the routines begin that I will give direction with clarity. I pray that I will find something to love about each one of my students. I pray I don't forget the good kids while I'm focusin…

Coming to an end.

Considering my last post was in October, this morning I woke up and finally wanted to let the fingers type and do the talking. Since October my life has changed and I have grown so much. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and I also always knew that I have both of my parents running through my blood. What this means for me is that I have this incredible drive to push myself to limits that haven't been set. My beautiful mother gave me passion for education. She constantly sets the example of the most excellent educator and one day I hope to be as successful as she is and was in the classroom. My mother gave me the realistic expectations that come with teaching, such as not always getting my way or having things work out in the way I would like them to. Bless her soul for being my constant supporter. My father gave me the drive to work hard and to never give up. He works construction and there hasn't been one thing that he hasn't finished once he set his mind to it. He …

Me + Christ = More

I haven't blogged in awhile. I think a lot of my blogs in the past year have started out that same way. I couldn't tell you why this is so, but it is. As I think of where my life is right this second there are millions of thoughts rushing through my head. About a year ago my life changed when I made some difficult decisions and accepted my life and who I was. 
I often get lost in my thoughts when I think of how I wish I could be more of something. Sometimes I want to be more healthy. Sometimes I want to be more athletic. I want to be more energetic for my students. I want to be more caring. I want to be more loving. I want to be more accepting. I want to be more Christ-like. I want to be more involved with my siblings. I want to be more accepted. I want to be more of a better team player for my teachers. I want to be more this and more that. I want to be more. A very wise person told me to lower my expectations of myself. As an educator this had a huge impact. I set very high …
