Bernadette, June 9, 2018 wrote: Integrity for teachers (NIV) James 3:1-2 "Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body." Thank you for your inspiring site, I love it!

I try to send out a weekly memo to my staff with updates, encouragement, reminders, etc. Your devotional is always on the back! The timing of what someone I'll never met was inspired to write and its effect on my team has been amazing. Several of the devotionals were spot on with what was happening here in KC between 22+ of us here. Blessings from KC!!!

MM July 2, 2017 wrote: I am in awe after reading your entry for this week, as it perfectly describes the pain I have been experiencing at my job for the past few years. This summer, I finally took a leap of faith and left my school home of 11 years due to a particularly angry and miserable teammate. It was a very difficult decision, but I know it was the right one. God bless you for saying the right thing at precisely the right time. I just love how God puts the right people in our path when we need it most. :)

Lisa K., February 22, 2017, wrote: Thank you for your thoughtful and thought-provoking articles and devotionals. As a professor of special education at a Christian IHE, I will be sure to share them on occasion with my special education teacher candidates. Just one small point? Remember person-first language - that is, my student is not a dyslexic but they have a diagnosis or eligibility of specific learning disability as a result of having dyslexia. Thank you once again for these very important conversations that you bring up and attend to in your blog. (Thanks, Lisa, for your insight.-Mrs. W)
Donna Green, January 19, 2017, wrote:I sometimes feel that what I do as a teacher is like beating my head against a brick wall. I read your devotional for the week of January 8th and it truly spoke to my spirit. Most students do want to be obedient, but the character trait of willingness involves not being selfish, and they are still very selfish in middle school. Peer pressure abounds and I see students hurting because they can't fit in. If I can help them see that obedience is a choice from the inside, maybe they will be more responsible in their actions. Of course, God reminds me that I need to be more unselfish too. In order to be obedient to Him, I need to be willing to follow Him because it is the right thing to do.
Avoney Wellington, January 2, 2017, wrote: Wonderful and insightful readings, Mrs. Wyrick. I really enjoy your devotionals that I have shared with my staff on a regular basis. They are truly practical and have the spiritual connection to it. I had a struggle with my teachers in helping them to understand the practice of giving students zeros for assignments turned in late or none at all. Your article has truly affirmed my beliefs and I will definitely share this with the staff. Thank you and may God continue to bless your efforts.
Brian, December 14, 2016 wrote: I am not an educator, but I work at a private, Christian Elementary School in Decatur Georgia as the Director of Security and Facility Manager. Our Chief Learning Officer (same as a Principal) has included me on the emails she sends to the teachers with devotion, and the messages have been such a blessing to me at different times and always on time. I think the messages are not only great for educators, but for anyone who takes the moment to read them, and especially for anyone working with children. Thank you so much for being obedient to God's leading to share these devotions. Continue to be obedient, and stay encouraged knowing that your labor is NOT in vain... :) May God's love, anointing, grace and peace be with you all of your days..
Kristen Parks, November 15, 2016 wrote- I truly enjoyed the devotional message for the week of November 13, 2016.I told God that I needed someone to witness to me in the struggles that I was facing as a new music teacher. I googled something and I found this page. I am very grateful for the word of God & how his children in disobedience & in obedience can confide in Him and take His words to share them with others. I love this message! And thank you so much for taking the time out to share it with others. You are much help and sincerely appreciated!
Ginger DuPree, October 9, 2016, wrote- Thank you for the devotion. It is strong and meaningful.
Natalie Wright, September25,2016 wrote -- Thank you so much for your thoughtful sincere encouragement. I love the scripture based devotion and really needed to read the suggestions offered on careful and loving criticism. Sometimes, we as teachers can lose focus on the "whys" of what we do and concentrate instead on the specifics of daily negative incidents, so I thank you for helping me to re-focus on Godly principles.
Tonya Bryant, September 25, 2016 wrote--Your devotions are very inspirational and truthful. I share your devotions with our teachers each week in our newsletter. I give them your website address, so they can get your archived devotions. Thank you for taking time to write the devotions...you are definitely a blessing to me, our teachers, and our school.

Angel Whitehead June 1, 2016 I started sharing your devotions with my teachers this year. Your messages have been so relevant to the common experiences we face in school. The teacher feedback has been so positive about the ways your devotions have ministered to them. Thank you for your many years of service to students and families. Thank you most of all for hearing the Holy Spirit's guidance along the way and for sharing that guidance with us.
Sharon Wilsnagh May 7, 2016 I started to share your weekly devotions with my teachers and assistants last year. In January I had to have a back op so was off work for most of our first term. Back at work now and at assistant meeting last week my assistants asked me to please please continue with the weekly devotions. Said they had missed them so much in my absence so thank you. We meet every Thursday to Cpray and do a small devotion and it is amazing how God speaks to us through your devotions. Thank you again and God bless!
