As I mentioned earlier this week, I decided that I want to get to know you all better and let you know a little more about myself too! I think it's great to "meet" new people and I look forward to learning about all of you. I can't think of a better title than "Share Yourself Saturday" but you do, let me know! This week's randomness is:
As I mentioned, I actually have a bachelor's of science in Civil Engineering. :) Surprise you? I'm now a stay at home mama of 2 little girlies and haven't worked a day in the engineering realm since I graduated. It's really part of my testimony as a Christian.
In my first year of college, I met someone who got me to go to a Christian cafe and I just kept going, which eventually led to church and eventually, over 5 years ago, I met my Lord and Savior Jesus. I continued on in my path in college (something I felt God was calling me to do) and in the Spring of 2007 I graduated with a Civil Engineering degree (with honors even!) I was 6 months pregnant with my first daughter and choose to stay at home with her.
Everyday, since choosing to stay at home, has been a walk of faith. It's how I'm trying to honor God with my life right now. I'm not perfect at it, there are many days that I have doubts and regrets and temptations to abandon ship, but it's my chosen path. I believe this is where God has me, for now, and I want to be wherever He calls me, no matter how hard it is. I love that Amy at Finer Things is doing a series on "Mommy Come Home" and I hope to get a chance to sit and read it soon. It feels so good and is so encouraging to be among good company, even if it's a virtual connection!
How about you? What kind of schooling do you have and what paths have you chosen following that schooling? I'd love to hear about it!
