I had thought about going back to school this fall and I may end up taking a couple of classes, but I'm just so content right now on being "just a Mom." I've been praying for this opportunity for a couple of years now and He's answered those prayers! I'd be crazy not to follow Gods calling for life right now.
It's crazy how we live in such a "the bigger the better" obsessed society. I've realized I don't have to have a huge degree, travel to a foreign land, or submerse myself in activities outside the home to serve Jesus. Simply being a Mom is doing something big for Jesus!
We Moms serve on our knees all day! Whether it's scrubbing toilets, cleaning up spills, wiping the beautiful drawings from the walls. I serve Jesus by serving my family! Preparing dinner while one wild 2 year old changes clothes for the 3rd time, and my son searches couch cushions for leggos and whatever other treasures he may find, running around a teenager (well she actually can run me around now!), and driving another spunky little girl to her tumbling class.... this is life changing! I have 4 amazing children and a hard working husband and serving them is most important. I love every minute of it.
I wouldn't trade this life for anything. I don't ever want to miss a moment of their life. Investing my life full time into the life of my family is my ministry. Training up my children to love and follow Jesus all the days of their life is an amazing job! My dream job!
