As everyone heads back to school, I just want to take time to encourage both students& educators!
Students: This will be your best school year yet!!! No matter what last year looked like, this year will exceed anything you can think or ask for. School is what you make it. So I encourage all students to wake up every morning with an attitude so positive that it rubs off on your classmates. The decisions you make now will follow you, so let's make great choices. Do not let anyone tell you can't be something or achieve something. You were born with purpose and passion. Use it to make this your best year yet! Just think, you are the world's next generation of leaders, how awesome is that? Your path now, prepares your place in leadership later. You got this, this is your year, and I am so excited for all the wonderful things God has in store for you all!!! I am so excited for you!!!
Educators: Wow! How awesome is it to be the example for the world's next set of leaders. My challenge to you is to change your "Got to" to your "Get to". Instead of dreading work, thinking ewww I gotta go to work. Shout and say I "get to" go to work! I have been chosen to lead the next group of leaders, I "get to" love on children that God has entrusted me with! Your efforts never go unnoticed, the world may not always display enough appreciation but God says “Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.” (Matthew 6:4) Remember we work as we are working unto Christ, not man. So everyday I encourage you to place your crown on your head as God's chosen and embrace His little children, because He knew you are just what they need in this season of their lives. Love you guys and remember Wow, you "get to" be leaders and teachers! You are awesome
So excited!!! This will be your best school year yet!!! Definitely will be praying for you this year! I love you all- Love, Rissa
