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.
