We're about to go through a big change here in our family. Well, mostly I am, but it will affect Steve & Claire. For the better. It will makes us stronger, a better team, and allow us to have more time together.
After much prayer, I've decided to leave my full-time ministry job at our church and go back to the classroom as an elementary teacher. As Claire gets ready to enter kinder this fall (waaaahhhhhh), Steve and I re-evaluated what changes need to be made for our family. Claire will be in school Monday-Friday and as of right now I work at church Tuesday-Thursday, Saturday, & Sunday. Our schedules would be so opposite. We'd rarely have a full day together as a family, and that made my momma heart hurt.
I've always said I would go back to teaching when we're done having kids and our youngest was in kinder. Well, we haven't been able to have any more kids so far, and our youngest is headed off to kinder. I know what you're thinking...."she's gonna get pregnant." Welp, maybe...hopefully...if it's part of God's plan we'll rejoice and then re-evaaluate again.
Right now we're rejoicing in the blessings of our obedience. I'm nervous, overwhelmed, and feeling a little behind in the education world. But I know I'm making the right choice for our family, and I know that this change will be used for His glory.
