God is in the Hallway: An Equipping Devotional for Christian Educators
God is in the Hallway: An Equipping Devotional for Christian Educators, is a twelve-week topical look at spiritual issues facing believers who teach in public, private, or home school settings.
Each week of the study is comprised of five-day sets of readings and exercises. Day 1 features a short essay on a particular truth about God and our relationship with him. Day 2 applies the Day 1 reading to the daily lives of educators. Day 3 introduces relevant scripture and suggests strategies for memorizing it. Each verse is given in three different Bible versions. Day 4 includes historical context for the Day 3 scripture and inductive study questions for meditation and application. Day 5 is for processing the reader’s thoughts, God’s revelation, and any changes that need to be made in thinking or behavior.
The premise behind the title is the idea that we meet God in the waiting, in the ‘in between’ of it all. For my students, life happens in the hallway between classes. That’s where they learn how to do relationships, how to trust, whom to trust, and how to wait—for love, for acceptance, for approval. God is in that hallway, both for them and for their teachers. Each classroom, each school, each office, and each board meeting is a battleground. We’re powerless without an understanding of who God is, who we are to him, and what weapons we already have for the hardest job there is.

“Amazing devotional! It cuts to the heart of what it means to be an educator with a caring spirit and how to create a better “us” for our kids. Thank you, Angie, for sharing your amazing wisdom and heart with us.” Dana Smith (Amazon Review)
“When doing devotionals, you expect to experience God. This devotional is so much more! It hits every part of you. God will move through you, so expect to be changed.” Melinda King (Kindergarten Teacher)
“These daily lessons are packed with wisdom, truth, and courage. It is not easy to preach the gospel to yourself, or to keep your mouth closed when your child (or a child in a classroom) makes the same mistake over and over, but with these simple yet impactful daily lessons, it might not be quite so hard. I am going to make sure I have a stock pile to pass out to teacher and home schooling friends!” Ann Hornack (Home School Teacher)
