This was my favorite line of the whole piece--

What an honor they will hold when God calls them home.
My first Sunday School class (after the church nursery of course) was in the furnace room of our church. Not the most attractive place in the building, but it was filled with much more than the warmth that came from the fire. Thanks for a lovely tribute to some very special people.
You made Sunday School come alive in your article. So many of us remember those happy childhood days of Bible stories that just seemed magical and you've managed to capture that.
You carried out your theme of "teach me" very well, showing the value of Sunday School in our lives through the years.
I love the encourgement for teachers and the joy from a student's point of view. Good job!
Oh, I remember trying to memorize those Bible verses, too. That stressed me out -- that's a bad memory of Sunday school for me. :( (Except I did like those gold stars.)

You did a nice job explaining why the foundations from childhood Sunday school are so important. Sometimes we forget that it's more than just cute Bible stories.
This is the line that made me lean forward and start really reading:
"It all starts at church in a little room with a teacher in Sunday School." I thought, "Aww, I remember." I liked the specific images you present. You show us an ideal Sunday School experience. I wish all the classes were like this! You are very blessed to have these sweet memories to share.

You can make your story unique and interesting by describing the little specifics. Paint the picture for the reader. You did a good job at this. Keep up the good work.
