Welcome to Mustard Seed Reads! I am so glad you’re here! My name is Autumn, and I am excited to begin this new blogging and digital creation adventure! My hope is to share a little bit of me with all of you – my faith, my classroom, and my love for reading.
Why Mustard Seed?
My relationship with Christ is the most important thing in my life. One of my favorite scriptures is Matthew 17:20 – “… if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” As I was contemplating starting a blog, I kept making excuses – lack of time, extra money, and knowledge, just to name a few. But, God laid it on my heart to step out in FAITH and move mountains. So here I am, ready to share my heart and His love with the world!
I am currently a 2nd Grade Teacher, but I was an Elementary Librarian for eight years before this, and I absolutely LOVE both jobs! Reading has always been a passion of mine. I have the best memories of my mom reading to me every night as a little girl, and when I was in elementary school, I would often volunteer to help the Librarian, Ms. Walker. Both of these women instilled a true love of literacy into my heart that has impacted my life in a huge way!
I can’t wait to share all of the fun things happening in my classroom with you – reading activities, book reviews, organizational tools, and more!
