Hello! I am a dyslexia therapist at a public school in Texas. I heard about this fabulous summit on Facebook. I have watched 4 session so far, and they have all been so great. I am under quarantine right now, which is a bummer, but I know that the Lord has ordained it because I NEEDED to hear the things that have been presented. Thank you so much for these great presenters and their passion!

I loved Grace over Grind-I definitely feel like I am stuck in the grind right now-not with school, but with life in general. What a refresher to my soul to go to His Word to renew my weary mind. And it was a great reminder that God knew long before I did that some of the crummy things happening now would happen. He is in control and will guide me through!

In A Christ Centered Approach to Dealing with Difficult People...so many good things in this presentation! I work with ADHD kids all day, and they can be very difficult at times. I also am in a situation where I have had to deal with a difficult kid for a long time and am at my breaking point. I was refreshed by the reminder that God will give me what I need when I need it in order to do His will!

Just watched Uplifting Students and Teachers. I have really been discouraged recently with a situation going on in my house with a child we took in to help care for, as well as some iffy things going on in my district regarding Covid quarantines and things in my department. The enemy is just attacking me at every step. Even though the challenges are sooo hard, I know that God will use them!

The presentation on Setting the Captives Free was very eye opening. Science has done it's best to explain away the simple fact that so many of the mental health issues in the world today stem from demonization. I needed !the reminder that as a Christian, I have AUTHORITY over the demons

Thank you so much for this conference. I wasn't sure what to expect, but you blew me away with both practical things I can use in my classroom and encouragement in this turbulent time. I am so glad I invested the time out of my weekend to do this. The conference was very refreshing and I am definitely going to come back and explore the on-demand sessions.

Thank you Linda and David for such a high level of quality speakers and teachers who love the Lord and share their passion for how to practically share this. I joined Mary Poplin, Ashley Ogal, Dave Stuart, Jr., Crystal Kershaw and Paula Phillips live and so enjoyed each and every session. I especially wish to thank you Linda for your sharing with presenters to ask thoughtful questions, involve us

This conference is amazing!! I wish I had come last year! This has been so encouraging and inspiring! I feel like it has reminded me to go to GOD with all of my classroom issues. I feel empowered to come before the throne with all of the stresses of teaching. (I, also, enjoyed being able to attend a conference in my p.j.'s!! silly)

I had never thought of doing a prayer walk throughout my building or my classroom. What a great idea, and it is SO needed right now!

Uplifting Teachers and Students was great to remind me that I need to pull out character concepts in my lessons.

I love this information. It serves of a reminder of where we should be in the Lord. We are the light of the world and If teachers or people cant see Christ in us how will they be able to see the difference. Oh I wish that this video could be provided as a ongoing resource or a go to resource to hear over and over again. Love this message. Yes, I am a ambassador for Jesus Christ!

Setting the Captives free: I will be filling my classroom with more worship music, and prayer, as I prepare for our day of learning.

Great information on teaching the whole story of evolution. I would like to know more about resources to lead elementary kids in critical thinking in science as well.

This is a great topic that is necessary to hear- as a christian we must wear out spiritual armour and be ready to battle! So glad this was a session! heart It would be nice to have prayers available for thise that watch may use!!!

Thank you Linda and David for putting this timely, inspirational, and educational event! What a blessing to see so many people tuned in from around the world. Having been with CEAI for most of my career, several great speakers and topics were very familiar. So, I want to give special kudos to Dave Stuart Jr. and his "5 Motivational Keys" which can be applied to a variety of settings. Blessings!
