Dr. Leah Sledge As a veteran public school educator with over 25 years of classroom experience, I have watched students have quick epiphanies with material being taught as well as watched other students struggle hard with basic understanding. I have learned to be flexible in my teaching approach and modify as needed to ensure all my students could be successful with their classroom lessons.
Well, the same is true with the spiritual knowledge that can come from studying the Word of God. While the concepts and principles might be easy peasy for one student, another student may read a passage and be confused because of the figurative language and expressions used in the text.
Speak to Me and Through Me was birthed through a Tres Dias Japan experience and I pray that the method of delivery in these books is able to reach all students of the Word of God.
