My favorite church callings have always been teaching. For all those who’ve taught church lessons, these GIFs will remind you of the good times, the bad times, and the amazing times. Enjoy!
When you are confronted with a really bad lesson manual.
When your RS class is excited about the handouts you made for the lesson.
When you wake up in a hotel on a Sunday morning and realize you forgot to get a substitute for your class.
When the teacher brings treats to class.
When you’ve totally lost control of your Sunbeams class.
When the bell rings and the Primary room doors open.
When you teach with the spirit.
The signal you get when you’re running over your time.
What you conclude when people share their personal stories in class.
When your object lesson actually works as planned.
When someone’s comment in class is just them showing off.
Trying to teach a lesson in nursery.
Teaching youth Sunday School and the entire class is texting.
When you make a joke and everyone laughs.
When you catch a class member nodding off.
Teaching YW when they are bored.
Every teacher’s worst fear.
When someone gets the most obvious question wrong.
When someone deliberately derails your lesson with their comment.
When someone makes a comment about how the world is getting so much worse.
When you get choked up while you are teaching.
What you think the entire class is thinking.
When someone makes the most asinine comment ever and you don’t want to be rude.
When you ask a question and class members don’t raise their hands or make eye contact.
When someone’s comment starts with “I totally disagree . . .”
When someone finally gets the point you’ve been trying to make and gives a relevant answer.
