Many people are gifted with the ability to teach children, but Jane Voss is an "extra-mile" kind of teacher. She is extremely well organized and exceptionally intuitive when it comes to teaching. You can't just call her a teacher because that wouldn't begin to explain the value of what she does for kids. She may plan a lesson, but she adjusts seamlessly to the shifting emotional needs of her students.
Jane drives farther than most people do to come to church. She serves as a Youth Ministry Leader several days every week. Most of the things that Jane does in life require extra effort, perseverance and resilience. She's an "energizer-lady" who relentlessly pursues excellence. Jane sees the opportunity to lead and jumps right in.
Sunday School is special and Jane's been doing that for many, many years. Celebrate Recovery on Friday nights is an extra-mile activity. Every lesson has a valuable life message to help kids learn how to become overcomers in the struggles of life.
Generosity is one of the greater things that Jane gives from her heart. Whatever is needed for the children she serves, Jane will find a way to make it happen. Obstacles and adversities are only greater opportunities to reveal God's glory in the heart of Jane Voss.
People who create Bright Spots in Life are folks who do the Greater Things that Jesus spoke about in John 14:12 (AMP) "I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me [as Savior] will also do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these [in extent and outreach], because I am going to the Father." The extent of Jane's outreach is the enlarged Love of God in the children she reaches.
Thank you Jane Voss for doing greater things for Jesus. The impact created through your actions not only trains up children in the way they should go, but you're also shining the light of Christ on the whole church. People see what you do and want to get involved. You are God's gift to the children and the church. Jesus loves you and so do we.
