I think it's a treasure to be able to display such faith-filled messages on our Smart Board and discuss the messages with my class. It also gives me as a teacher something meaningful to reflect on every day.

The beginning of this year has included many sorrows and struggles for my students and these quotes always lead us back to our strong faith in God helping us, always being with us, and equipping us to get through tough times. It is so inspiring to see ten-year-olds start each school day with the constant reminder of God's love for us!

I like being able to reflect on the words of the Bible in a deeper way. On my own, I might not have been able to make as many connections as I did in class. Having open discussions allows me to grow closer in faith and trust with my classmates.

After dealing with worldly stuff, I enjoy an image that is pleasing to the eye and a message from Holy Scripture or the words of a saint to lift my thoughts to God and provide a short respite from the daily grind. I especially enjoy the times when they share amazing insights from High School students. Thank you and God bless you, Growing Catholics.
