The duties and responsibilities of teaching demand much of the mind and heart. This book will encourage and energize hardworking teachers in their week-to-week service to children and youth. Created for both classroom and Sunday school teachers, these fifty-two uplifting devotions will help individuals to connect their Christian faith with their mission as teachers.

Drawing upon a creative lesson plan format, the devotions use familiar school objects as springboards to spiritual lessons. Each devotion features supporting scripture (including NRSV and NIV) and a personal challenge to the reader, which is given, a fitting title such as “Pop Quiz,” “Group Work,” “Show and Tell,” or “Extra Credit.” A short prayer, called “A Word With the Principal,” concludes each lesson. Helpful teaching tips are included in many of the devotions. The book’s small size makes it a companion easily slipped into a desk drawer or tote bag.
