For more than twenty years, I have enjoyed teaching a variety of ages and stages from pre-school to college.
The common thread is that life is a journey and our career is a part of that journey. Our careers are our work, the product of our offering to God as we work out and grapple with what we do and who we are. My story is just one of many that can be an example, but everyone has their story.
I left a highly secure job as a high school teacher in a beautiful suburban setting, teaching subjects that I loved most to share. Life was ideal and my income was strong. Yet, God had other plans. Within five years, my husband and I had four children and in the sixth year my mother had a paralyzing stroke the month before my husband was to start graduate school.
