Faith Based Learning

I teach in a Christian School.  I believe in faith-based education that not only teaches aboutthe Bible, but also trains children up the ways of Jesus.  These are verses I love, websites I find useful, and resources for Christian education.

Those who hope in the Lord
I Can do all things through christ who strengthens me
But we hope for what we do not yet have
for God has not given us a spirit of fear
