About Me

Go out into the world

I am a teacher, a mother, a wife, an artist and a writer… not to mention, a child of God.

Welcome to my little corner of the world… Heart Soul Teach. 

When I became a teacher I did not realise how much of myself would be caught up in the hearts of the children in my care.

When you teach, when you truly teach, not just ABCs and 123s, you stand a good chance of experiencing a vast range of emotions within a school year, a school term and even just a single school day. You are blessed with the precious little lives of unique individuals who are looking to you to guide them in their learning. You are responsible for all areas of their wellbeing and are charged with helping to shape them into the adults they will become in their future. It is vitally important to realise this before you even think about lesson plans and assessment results.

I believe my purpose as a teacher is to teach hearts and shape souls. When my inbox is packed with emails, or my desk is overflowing with never-ending tasks, I often remind myself of why I am here.

Proverbs 18:21 (The Message) says,

Words kill, words give life;
    they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.

Each and every day as a teacher you have to make a choice when you speak words into the hearts of your students. And you do speak to their hearts – whether you think you do or not. In the midst of the Mathematics lesson, the morning routine or out in the playground, you can bring hurt or you can bring hope. You can enable doubts or you can allow dreams to grow.

In creating this blog, I hope to encourage and inspire you in your teaching and in your life. I hope you receive a little more light in your heart and your soul after visiting.

  1. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not
    very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to
    begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    Appreciate it

    1. I have a husband who works in Technology, so he did most of the set up for me. I do recommend WordPress or Blogger if you are starting out with little knowledge of the more technical side of websites and blogging. There really are so many blogging sites on offer now though. Just take your time when choosing the best fit for you.

      It’s also great to have a good theme to your blog. Mine is a devotional aimed at teachers (though I know it is also very open to readers who are not teachers themselves).

      I hope that helps. All the best!

  2. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d most
    certainly donate to this fantastic blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking
    and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to new updates and will share this site with my Facebook group.

    Chat soon!

  3. I have been surfing online a lot more than 3 hours lately, yet I in no way found
    any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful worth sufficient in my opinion. In my opinion, if all site owners and
    bloggers made perfect written content as you probably did, the internet
    will most likely be far more helpful than ever before.
