I never thought that I would ever do anything else but teach. I can always remember wanting to teach and finally deciding that I was actually going to do it. So, with high school diploma in hand, off to college I went. I spent five years learning, studying, and accomplishing all I needed to be the best teacher that I could be, always imagining that I would always teach until the day of retirement.
This year however, will be the second year in a row that I have gotten laid off. Though I have not officially gotten my pink slip yet, it is coming. But there is something different this time; I have a complete sense of peace because I feel like God shown me that teaching in the public school system is not all He has for me.
While I was in Bible College God showed me that there was more to life than what I was doing. Ever since then I have felt like I am to start a group home for foster children. I have no idea how this will happen, but I am so ready! I have started to work on the Non-profit organization paperwork and get that ball rolling. While I get that started I also have in my sights on a piece of property that would make this dream a reality... the only problem is... it costs 3 million dollars! :) But, I do know that if God wants me to do this, He will make it all happen.
So, if I do really lose my job, I would like to really focus my energy on making this place a reality! So, keep an eye out for anyone willing to donate 3 million dollars to the cause! :)
