I'm a teacher. Did you know that?

Sometimes I forget.

This past Sunday I started helping in the nursery again. I just started volunteering for one Sunday a month with the 2's. I haven't helped since before I got pregnant.

That's a long time.

Wanna know a secret?

I loved it.

Like, really loved it.

I mean of course I loved it. I'm a teacher. Did I mention that? I'm wired to teach. I didn't even actually teach these kids, though. I just played with them. And loved on them. That was enough.

I'm wired to kids. And I've missed them. And, yes, my first calling is to teach Taylor and future little Owen babies. But I'm also called to teach other kiddos. Other people's kiddos.

Did you know there is a whole bunch of kids up at church every Sunday morning?

And they are just waiting on me to play and love and teach them.

So, we'll see what happens.

I need to talk to God about it.


  1. You're so good w/ kids. When I asked Eli who he played w/ in SS this Sunday, the first person he said was "Kristin!". Not "Yuke" (Luke), Sam or Radford. You were at the top of his list this week. :)

  2. You ARE great with kids! I can't wait for Sam to be back in there with ya - I know he'll enjoy playing with you :).
    I think it's great that you're finding ways to expand the use of your gifts.

  3. It's so good to hear from you on here. I LOVE pictures of taylor, but I love hearing your heart just as much.
    I'm so glad that God reminded you of the gifts He's given you. You are definitely a star when it comes to children.
