Keynote Presentation "Rejoice in Resilience"

by Dr. Kim Marxhausen
This past year has been a year of challenges and problem-solving. It has been a year where we have needed to dig deep to find the emotional strength to keep going, keep teaching, and  keep loving the families in our care. When God expect great things from us, He also provides the resilience we need to follow Him and grow in our faith.  Let’s revel in that resilience and learn how it has helped us to grow. Then let’s look at ways we can build resilience in our classrooms and with our families. We don’t always know how the year will progress, but we always know we have Jesus.
