Sharing a Bit of My Life!
The above photo is about half of the students in my 5th/6th grade Sunday School class. These preteens are a real challenge to teach! They know more about life at 11 and 12 years of age than I did when I married at age 23! They are a lively, chatty, lovable group of preteens, and a joy to be with each Sunday. It takes me a part of each day to study my lesson for the week and many hours in prayer during the week to prepare to teach. Since we can't be with our grandchildren very often, these preteens fill that void. My granddaughter, Courtney, was a part of this group when they lived with us and then again this past summer. Courtney, is the one that inspired me to volunteer to teach this age group when they were looking for a teacher. I had always taught 3rd /4th graders, and they are a real joy to teach, but this group of boys and girls has my heart!
