God Is with Us was written with a heart to uplift and help other educators to remain faithful to God and recognize that He is with us in the classroom. This devotional is designed to encourage and challenge teachers with insightful devotions which use relatable classroom experiences, Bible passages, godly principles, and sincere prayers that will influence readers to recognize and consider God’s presence in all aspects of their lives, including their classroom. A Bible reading is suggested to encourage readers to glean truth from the Word of God. Faith is built by reading His Word.

God Is with Us is compiled of 90 devotions. They are divided into ten sections and organized by topics such as classroom practices, prayer, daily walk, and positivity. Each devotion is followed with a section for the reader to write thoughts, verses, and/or prayers. Circling back to specific devotions throughout the school year for encouragement and/or to reflect on previous notes or thoughts is a great idea! Rereading the 90 devotions and self-reflection pages may lead to further encouragement such as answered prayers, student growth, and scriptural reinforcement.
As a bonus, a few prayers and poetry have been included. The prayers were developed and used at the beginning of a school year, before state testing, and with the use of Bible verses. The poetry was written for the holidays and are some of my favorites. Whether the scriptures used, devotions shared, sincere prayers offered, or self-reflection written, it is essential that we all remember God Is with Us.

My name is Dru Cox Pearcy. I have been a Christian for over 50 years. I have been an educator for over 22 years as an upper elementary school teacher in three different buildings in the same corporation. I have been recognized by my colleagues in each building as their “Teacher of the Year” candidate. That honor was based on classroom teaching, teacher leadership, building cultural influence, and community interactions. I credit those honors to God’s leading and blessing on my life.
My father was my pastor and counselor. He taught me to listen intently, consider God’s principles in every situation, and then draw from the Word of God and apply it to my life. He taught me to consider every detail and step in my life from the perspective of God and His Word. I have practiced those principles in my classroom and began ten years ago to write my own devotions to lead in my small Bible study groups. I’m approaching retirement and accepted a challenge by Dr. David Jeremiah to take a risk and do something meaningful for the Lord. This book came about because I accepted the challenge.
