I’m baaack!! After a long absence from writing it would seem I fell of the face of the planet! But my absence can be explained in one word – school. Yes… I have gone back to school full time through the fabulous Liberty University Online. Its been a whirlwind to say the least but after completing my first two eight week classes this past Friday I can tell you – I am on the right path.
Why did I decide to go back to school?
It has always been important to me. I’ve been ticking away at my Psych degree for years but between career promotions and having babies – I haven’t been able to finish it up. I have a passion for understanding human behavior especially children’s behavior; that, coupled with my desire to inspire and encourage others, finishing my degree in Psych and then pursuing a Masters in Christian Counseling seemed the logical choice. My heart is to apply this knowledge to my my ministry to moms and women all over the world through writing, speaking and whatever else God has in store.
What am I going to do with this degree?
Well, only God knows the exact plans for me… I am just along for the ride! I have some ideas, as indicated above, but I remain open to His leading. I don’t want my plans or ideas to interfere with His ultimate direction. What I do know is that this is the “right” next step in the journey for me.
What about Not aLone Mom?
Don’t worry – I don’t plan on taking so much time away from NAM in the future. This “school thing” happened so quickly I didn’t have time to get myself organized in advance to aptly juggle everything at once. Now that my first two classes are over I have only one class to finish out the summer semester until another busy fall season begins. I am going to utilize these next several weeks to establish a good time management “game plan” so that I don’t have to take time away down the road.
What about the NAM team?
We are all still here… everyone has had busy summers so we all took a little time away to spend quality time enjoying family, etc. We are all excited for a new season with NAM.
What can we expect for the future from NAM?
I wish I could tell you! Honestly – this ministry is the Lord’s. I am, however, spending the next THREE weeks fasting and praying for NAM and I would like to ask that you all join with me and remember this ministry in your prayers as I seek God’s plan and direction.
Fasting & Praying Wed to Wed: July 10- July 31
I want to thank you all for sticking with me, and this ministry, and for remaining interested in what we have to share. Our hearts’ are to see the love of Jesus delivered to everyone reading. To make somebody’s day. To bring a smile to a tired mama’s face as she realizes – “I am not alone!”
I look forward to reconnecting with you all in the days and weeks to come. I would also love to hear from you and welcome any questions you may have. If you are committed to praying for this ministry over the next few weeks I would love a little note/comment below even simply stating – “I’m praying!”
In the mean time – Enjoy your Family this Summer!!!
Many blessings to you,
