sprouting fruitful life stories through

creative teaching resources and inspirational children's books

Our Mission

We provide creative teaching resources and inspirational children’s books that will grow you spiritually, socially, and academically. Consequently, we want you to experience what it is to be a fruit bearing vessel. Therefore, we hope you’ll join us and be a fruit pot.

Core Values within our Creative Teaching Resources

  1. Connect with the creator. Whether our resources refer to the creator as a potter or Mother Nature, we believe we are each divinely created by God. In addition, He has a unique purpose for us that includes knowing Him personally.
  2.  Be creative. Everything that we do and create is a reflection of the creator Himself. Likewise, we strive to create fun and unique resources that grow us spiritually, socially, and academically.
  3. Be fruitful. Physical, spiritual, social, and academic growth should produce love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and self-control. These qualities are what the Bible refers to as the fruit of the Spirit. Just as the potter created Little Pot to be a fruit pot, we must be fruitful vessels. Therefore, we strive to demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit.

You are the story sprouted by God, not in books, but in hearts

2 Corinthians 3:2-3

hi, I'm Dawn

As a mom, educator, and school principal, I created teaching resources and children’s books about clay vessels discovering their purpose. Each pot has a unique relationship to the potter. In addition, their stories represent the stories we sprout alongside our creator. Just as Little Pot grows strawberries, we can produce the fruit of the Spirit. Likewise, a teapot serves. As an oil lamp gives light, we can shine. Consequently, these characters and I help others grow spiritually, socially, and academically. Each area leads to serving, shining, and bearing fruit for the potter.

How I can help you with creative teaching resources

Homeschooling Parents

Your story requires you to be your child’s teacher, principal, and parent. Therefore, you’re the single authority in your child’s growth. You have to be extra creative because your child works with you every day and every year. Similarly, I have raised three children & now enjoy being a grandma. I’m here to give you new ideas & share in sprouting your story.

Private School Educators

Your school is a family. You work closely with each child’s parent and provide customer service for the “business” of education. Consequently, you must be extra creative because your students are paying customers.Likewise, I spent more than ten years as a private school principal & am here to give you new ideas & share in sprouting your story.

Public School Teachers

You teach all types of students from diverse backgrounds. Above all, your story calls you to be a light in an institution that rejects Christ. You have to be extra creative in sharing the love of Jesus within legal restrictions. I taught Kdg, 1st, 2nd, & 3rd grade in 4 public school systems. After that, I gained new ideas & want to share in sprouting your story.

Children's Church Workers

Your story entails teaching all age levels weekly for only a short period. Moreover, your students choose to attend your class.
