Have you ever been at a point in your life where you feel like God is not sharing with you the plans that he has for your future? I know that sounds weird, but in my Beth Moore study she had a similar experience, so I don't feel so "out of tune" with God. Anyway... Brian is rounding out his education at UC soon, or at least I think so, and I'm beginning to explore my options for graduate work. The problem is I am really unsure of what that looks like. Working in social work it appears that you are always under a grant. This is not always secure, so I am thinking about possibly teaching. Mostly because when we have kids I want to be home with them during the summer and on snow days. It sounds like a lot of work looking for child care when there is a snow day. Also, Brian will be teaching one day, so it would make sense that we have that time together as well.
My question is... do I have a desire to teach? I DON'T KNOW!!! This Thursday and Friday my beautiful friend is opening up her classroom to give me a glimpse in the life of a teacher. She says she thinks being emerged in the classroom with 25 students will give me some direction as to if I want to teach. Everyone that I have sought council from has told me they think I would do well because of my organization skills and social work background. So... after this week, prayerfully I will be able to see a little more clearly and at least answer that pending question. Comments welcome! Lord knows I need them!
