How can the Awakened Devotional help YOU?

The book Awakened: Change Your Mindset to Transform Your Teaching is not a Christian book. Or more accurately, it was written to speak to ALL educators, regardless of their faith or lack thereof. But Awakened can be connected to countless biblical truths by those who choose to seek them out.



Designed to deepen Christian teachers’ understanding of the principles in Awakened, this devotional study guide elaborates on what God’s word has to say about renewing our minds. For each Awakened chapter, the study guide provides an opening reflection, devotion, further scripture reading, application questions, “to do” challenge, and a prayer that invites God to help you in applying the principles to your life.


Use The Awakened Devotional Study Guide for Christian Educators on your own, with a group in your community, or online through the Bible study book clubs offered by the author. Tackle one of the 26 book chapters and devotions each day, each week, or on any flexible schedule you choose. Come see what God wants to show you about transformation! You’ll find the encouragement and spiritual guidance you need to fulfill the call on your life in our challenging profession and become everything the Bible says you can be through Christ.



The devotional study guide is 8.5 x 11 and is designed to be a workbook where you can record your thoughts and respond to what you’ve read. Each devotion is 4 pages: the first page includes the corresponding Awakened reading and an opening reflection where you can write down your initial thoughts as well as notes from Awakened if needed. The second page has the devotion and a wide left margin for notetaking. The third page has the application questions (with space for your responses) and an additional scripture reading (with space to add other related Bible verses you’re reminded of.) The fourth page has a “to do” challenge with a work space and a prayer.

Free printable scripture and prayer posters

Memorizing God’s word is a critical part of renewing your mind. To help with this, I’ve compiled the scripture references and prayers from the devotional book into printable resources, with one page for each devotion. You can reference the pages on your phone, tablet, or computer. Or, print them out as a set of mini posters: keep them tucked in your lesson plan book, hang them on your refrigerator at home and read them each morning, or display them somewhere else where they can encourage and remind you of God’s truth.


This is a really powerful tool for allowing scripture to permeate your thinking. If you’re completing the devotional on a weekly schedule, you can keep the corresponding scripture page displayed and read it over each day. After you’ve completed the study, you can continue to cycle through the pages, reading and reflecting on a different one each day or week so that the words are made fresh once again in your mind and heart.

See what teachers are saying about the book...

All of the devotionals were well-written, practical, and so applicable to teaching and life in general. Each day as I read the sections of Awakened and the accompanying devotional I grew more and more excited about sharing both resources with other teachers at my school and teacher friends in my Bible study. Teachers are under so much stress that the only solution is God! Angela’s words are so clear and draw directly from the word of God. It’s encouraging to read something written by an experienced teacher who understands the demands of the job and who is an overcomer through Christ

Sarah Sheppard, 1st grade teacher, Winchester, VA

This devotion helped me grow closer in my walk with God. When I used this devotion with the book Awakened, I learned so many strategies to help me overcome the negative thoughts in my head and to help me be a more joyful teacher. I cannot imagine how my life would be if I had not been fortunate enough to have come across this this devotion. I encourage every teacher to read these two books together.

Michelle Reagan, 4th grade teacher, Greenville, NC

This study was a balm to my frazzled spirit. It provided guidance, support, and encouragement with a perfect blend of scripture and common sense.

Barb Trombley, 3rd grade teacher, St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin

I feel I have truly been AWAKENED after completing this study. The changes that I have implemented in my life both at work and home have helped me to draw closer to God and feel a peace that I have been striving for since I began teaching

Lisa Berg, 6th grade teacher, NY

The devotions in this book were very encouraging, convicting, and motivating to all areas of my life. The devotions reinforced to me the importance God being the top priority in my life. They also reinforced to me the importance of being okay with not having it all together all the time.

Kesha M., 4th grade teacher, Vidalia, GA
