Item description for Recess for Teachers: Taking Time Out for Your Body, Mind, & Soul by Vicki Caruana...
Overview School kids spend a lot of time looking forward to recess. Their teachers are no different. "A healthy, happy classroom begins and ends with the teacher," says seasoned educator Vicki Caruana. However, she knows from experience that a healthy, happy lifestyle isn't always easily maintained among teachers. When school is in session, unique responsibilities mount, and the profession has a way of biting into personal time. Recess For Teachers invites you to take rightful time out for the body, mind, and soul on a regular basis. Each encouraging chapter addresses the harried modern-day ways of a teacher's life, countering them with timeless biblical lessons about rest and further relaxation tips that will restore much-needed balance. Take a moment for yourself, and see how it rewards others as well.
Publishers Description Vicki Caruana's heart is for teachers. She writes in the introduction for Recess for Teachers, "I know firsthand what it is like to come to the end of yourself as a teacher, yet are still expected to pour yourself out as from an empty vessel. We seem to look for rest in all the wrong places and from all the wrong people. I want to help bridge the ever widening gap between fatigue and rest." Vicki shares with her fellow teachers the secret to true rest-rest that is for your body, mind, and soul. True refreshment is found in God's comforting embrace and His promise to renew our wings as eagles. Recess for Teachers is a glass of water on a hot, long day. And it is Vicki's hope, that as a result of using this book, teachers can in turn have the opportunity to minister and offer real rest to their colleagues.
