not a silly question. A spiritual soul time out for teachers.
I hope that you know you have stumbled upon a safe space to grab a cupper with me, Carly Thomson, a space to take a much needed breather, a space where you can feed your soul, a space where you can thrive in your personal life, as well as at school. I hope that you can find yourself among educators who are asking the so- called silly questions, because I know you. I know you love your job. You love teaching. You are called to it. Yet, you feel as though you're not sure if you'll last the distance. You're a little tired and worn out, and who can blame you after the last couple of years we've had? You're not alone.
Thousands of teachers leave the profession within their first five years of teaching. Teachers all over Australia are burning out. The wonder and joy of teaching is slowly dissipating. And many of us are finding ourselves stuck, overwhelmed, overworked, and perhaps our loved ones, if you've even had time for that, are missing us, because we still have so much to do.
This is the space for you.
Together, let's figure out how to do this teaching and personal life thing well. Let's lean in to the word of God. Let's hear from amazing teachers who are doing this wellbeing, soul care thing really well. Let's learn teacher hats and daily routines that are going to save us time and energy. And let's tend to those deep places of our soul that really need us to care for it.
Best of all, I hope that this becomes a space where you can ask the so- called silly questions, where you can find yourself amongst a community of educators who have a beautiful growing wild faith, who want to live well in the classroom as well as in their home life, and want to bring God glory in our profession.
If that's you, can I encourage you hit subscribe, share this with friends, let's build a positive, encouraging community where educators who have a faith can grow their spiritual care, in their soul care but also as educators together.
You can send your silly questions to me at CarlyThomson. com. But most of all, join me each week for a short amount of time. Put it aside, have your spiritual soul time out for you so that you can thrive in the classroom and in your personal life.
So let me bless you today.
May your soul find rest.
May you walk in his grace and may you know how deeply loved you are.
