Dreams coming true...

I have said before that I am so overwhelmed at how God orchestrates timing and certain events that happen in life. This week was one of those times. For several years now, I have had dreams of teaching online, and yesterday that dream became a reality. As silly as it sounds, during the training, I nearly teared up as I was learning about the curriculum and the logistics of the online system. Sometimes it is hard to avoid the emotion that comes with finding yourself in a place in life that you have prayed so hard for, and have now been given. This online teaching job is a stepping stone for me as I begin a new phase of life...a phase where hopefully I will have the privilege of having children, and being home with them as much as possible. It feels as though dreams and goals are unfolding before my eyes, and that is not only encouraging but it makes me want to tell everybody that God truly answers prayers.

I encourage you to continue to pray often, to pray frequently and know that God not only hears them, he is longing to have those prayers answered.

Transition...a way of life

So...after completing two master's degrees, getting married, moving to Ohio, and getting two new jobs, I thought I would now have some time to do some blogging:) I guess I am already in withdrawal of writing paper after paper and need some kind of communicative outlet!

These past few months have brought a lot of change to my life...which I like to believe comes naturally for me. Although, the magnitude of change has overwhelmed me at times, I am so thankful for how God has shown His faithfulness and His perfect timing. I cannot begin to say how many times I have said to my husband, "I can't believe how perfect the timing of the phone call for a job, an interview, or even a renter for our condo" has been for us. God has taught me so many lessons...about having faith in uncertain situations...trusting that God's timing is perfect...and being thankful for any outcome.

So, in conclusion, I am so thankful for the life God has provided, even if it is in a small town called Lima, OH :)
