In September of 2012, I moved my writing home to a new space titled Fostering Love at Home. I'd love for you to join me there!
As I shared earlier this week, Michael and I are moving and Michael is going to start going to Bible College to prepare for full-time pastoral ministry.
Since college is expensive. We have decided that it will be best for me to get a job. I have not worked for the past 2 years, in preparation for having children.
However, since we are also putting our adoption on hold for at least a year (I talked about that briefly here), we feel it will be best for me to work and help pay for tuition, instead of getting ourselves into major debt!
I feel like this is part of my role as a helper (Genesis 2:18). I am to help my husband however I can. For the last two years, he needed my help at home more than outside of the home. But, now that our life is changing drastically with this move. We are re-evaluating many things, and one of them is my employment status.
So, we decided that when we move, I am going to look for a job. This is best for our family now, and in the future.
My purpose in writing this post is to let women know that at times I feel like it is right and good for women to work and help their husband in this way. This is a season of our life (Ecclesiastes 3:1) that is different from what we have been doing, and for this season, I am going to work.
Please pray for all these changes and decisions, we want to be aligned with God’s will in all things!
