Empowering. Motivational. Inspirational. Encouraging. All are words used to describe what Apples of Grace 31 Days of Inspiration for the Educator is meant to be for all those who want to instruct and positively impact future generations. Cortland has used his wealth of knowledge as an educator, his passion for students and teachers and his spiritual background to develop a resource to assist educators in not only making themselves better professionally but also personally. It is known that without a strong foundation, an entire structure will crumble, so we hope this book will be another brick for educators to use as a part of the basis to build an educational structure that will stand the test of time for many years to come.
