I did the school thing earlier this year and managed to make it through the course. I got my CNA, even worked for about 3 months.
Then my Dad died.
I could not face working in the end of life care field anymore.
I have always had a longing and a calling to be in children’s ministry. Every church we are involved with, we are in the children’s programs. I love kids. I love seeing kids get excited to learn about who they are and where they come from. I love working with youth who want to make an impact and a difference in their generation. Teenagers are our leaders of tomorrow. I am an advocate to getting them engaged and involved in their faith, because if we lose them now, we won’t have them tomorrow.
I am going back to college full-time (online) starting Monday August 23rd. I am getting my Bachelors in Religious Studies with an emphasis on Youth and Children Ministries. I am attending (online) Liberty University out of Virginia. This is funny since I had the pleasure (not) of living in Virginia for 2 years and swore (no really, I swore…with bad words even) that I would NEVER have anything to do with that pathetic state ever again. See how well that worked for me?
I think my little 8 week stint in February and March was just a test to see if I could maintain myself in school again with a family and work. I think I did well.
God tells me daily that I am doing ok. He lets me wake up in the morning and take a deep breath. If I can past those tests, I can pass anything.
Except maybe a math quiz…ugh.
