To Go or Not Go Back to School…

To Go or Not Go Back to School…

One of the main reasons why I am applying to school is so that I can be the role model my dear Elizabeth needs. She deserves a mother who follows her dreams and never gives up. But there have been a few dreams that I have put on the back burner…

When I first met Andrew, I had been accepted for a Master’s of Divinity. But because of lack of finances and other reasons, I decided not to go. But it’s been a regret since then. I am not happy with working as an administrative assistant, my mind was not made for that. What I am hoping for is a job that deals with concepts and idea more than the nitty gritty. That is why I applied for the Master’s of Divinity. I feel that I would be well equipped to lead a church or at least, write books on topics I am familiar with.

I also decided to apply for teacher’s college. This is a more practical degree, but it does have the nitty gritty I am not so fond of. Still, there’s loads of time to be able to use concepts and ideas to teach the little ones. I am hoping to one day teach religion at the grade 12 level. This would be exciting to me.

The way we were going to fund it was off the price of selling our home. But we need God to direct our steps. Will we be able to sell our home? Will I get accepted to where I am meant to be? Will we be able to move in with mom and Cheryl so that we have easy childcare for when I am away at school? Or should I stick with the Master’s of Divinity should I get accepted, that gives me access to remote learning? Will my bipolar be negatively influenced by studying or will it improve it?

I pray God will lead our steps and direct our paths in all things. He is Logos, and He is Love. May there be balance in our decisions.
