POWERFUL TIPS FOR POWERFUL TEACHERS: Helping Youth Find Their Spiritual Wings
"Powerful Tips for Powerful Teachers isn't a book to read once and put on your shelf.

This invaluable guide will take teachers who already magnify their callings to the next level: that of changing eternity for themselves and their students." ~ Terrie Lynn Bittner, author of Homeschooling: Take a Deep Breath - You Can Do This!

Woolley, Ph.D. Organizational Behavior, author of The Promised Land series.

It was a joy and delight to read!" ~ Kerry Blair, author Counting Blessings: Wit and Wisdom for Women and Of Infinite Worth: Tributes to Motherhood
