    ha! Love this! It’s the hardest job you’ll ever do, but it will be the most rewarding — to you and Troy, to the family, church, and nation.

  2. Great post Amy! Whew, that made me tired just reading all of it! I found your blog through Amanda Hilburn, and I enjoy reading your posts [during nap time, of course :)]

  3. This is such a great post. Do you mind if I use it 4 my lesson in Feb. as an example?

    • Rebecca, of course, go right ahead! I can’t wait to hear you teach. You’ll do an amazing job, I know, and more importantly, you teach all the time by your life. I’ve learned tons from you and can’t wait to learn more in Feb! πŸ™‚
