Missy SchaperGrace Kids Nursery Director
South Overland Park
If you had to sum up your responsibilities at Grace in one sentence, what would it be?
I have the privilege of helping equip Grace Kids Nursery Teachers in their ministry as they lead the tiniest of Grace Kids to experience Jesus and the Bible for the very first time!
What is the best advice you have ever been given?
“Figure out what you love to do, and then figure out how to get paid to do it.” For me: I love Jesus and I am passionate about early childhood education. What better job could there be than Children’s Ministry?
What do you do for fun?
One of my favorite things to do on my days off is to create and sell preschool curriculum and resources to teachers around the world via my little website.
What is one verse from the Bible by which you try to live your life?
I memorized Proverbs 3:5-6 as a little kid to earn a sticker on a chart. I’m so glad I did, it has been a great reminder for me to trust and follow God in all things.
What is your favorite movie?
I have a ton of favorite movies, but if you judge a favorite by number of times viewed and how often I reference and/or quote it then the clear winner would have to be The Princess Bride. It’s been a favorite since I was a little kid, and the number of times I’ve seen it is truly ‘inconceivable’.
