Update on Life

Sorry everyone that I haven't posted in almost over a year!! If I were to say that life has been crazy, that would be an understatement. Let me get everyone up to speed with what's happening in my little world. 

Last fall after returning home from Russia, I was still having a hard time finding a job in the "real world", even with my college degree, finding a job was not easy in my small home town. So, while I was working for my family's business, I also started volunteering at a local crisis pregnancy center. For several years now, I have felt the need to volunteer there, but because of my transient lifestyle, I wasn't able to make that commitment. Last fall it was finally the right season of life for me to volunteer. I went to the center, filled out an application, had my interview, and started volunteering. A few months after volunteering, I was offered a job with the center! How amazing is our God?! I am now the Client Services Director and I work with our clients and manage our volunteers. I love my job and it is great experience for me. 

After thinking about what I want to do in life, I decided that I needed to start pursuing my graduate degree. Then came the overwhelming task of answering the following questions: where I would obtain this degree, what type of grad degree do I want/need, and how am I going to pay for it? Thankfully, I found Liberty University based out of Virginia and they have an amazing online program. They have 8 week semesters, so I am able to get this degree knocked out in a little more than a year. Getting this degree was not always that I wanted, but after searching for a job for more than 6 months, I realized that I needed one. Again, God provided me with the perfect job and the perfect degree. I am so excited to eventually use the degree I'm currently pursing. When all is said and done, I'll have a Master's in Human Services with concentration on Military Resilience. 

Hopefully, by the middle/end of next summer, I'll be able to work with our military and their families, helping them adjust and handle problems within their families. 

So this is just a little summary of life over the past year. Sorry for not posting regularly, I'll try to do better!
