Reading, Speaking, and Writing

"Reading makes a full man, speaking a quick man, and writing an exact man." -- Francis Bacon

Teaching well requires you to be well-prepared, both in your specific lesson, and broadly. So I strongly encourage you to read deeply and widely, to practice speaking with others about issues of consequence, and to practice writing (letters, journals, short devotions, blogs). These will deepen you and enrich you; you'll become a greater blessing to others as you sharpen your abilities.
