Opening a new chapter in life

I have left my job at The Home Depot in order to make my own schedule and be my own boss.  I was getting tired of getting taken advantage of and the long hours standing on concrete.  I would have to sometimes beg someone to take my place so I could go to the restroom or take a break.  No one wanted to do the greeting job that I was doing sometimes eight hours.  Between the aching muscles and the run for the restroom, I had had enough.

I had been praying for some time about getting back home to be a stay at home Mom, wife, and homeschool educator.  I have tossed around the idea of cleaning homes to help keep the household running.

Well, some jobs have come up and I decided to take the leap and leave the corporate world behind.  I can set my own schedule and take Bri with me.

Bri is really at a time in her life that she needs her Mom.  I have the feeling that she is coming into puberty.  She will be 10 in Oct and she is acting like a teen.  That is what really made me make the decision.

What I need most is prayers.  Will you pray for us?  I have gotten back to the practice of praying every morning along with reading a devotional.  I am now able to go to church regularly and a bible study with other ladies.  I had to leave all that behind when I took full time work. 

I am really relying on God right now to lead me in the right direction.  All we need comes from him.

Thank you so much for your prayers.


  1. Working today seems to be even tougher than when I was a teen. my teen kids who worked, hated their jobs. I too am a stay-at-home Mom. I will be praying.

  2. praying for you and God is able. cast your cares upon Him for He cares for you...you're making the right decision to be a MOD, mother on duty as opposed to an absent parent. God will honor your choice.

  3. Sounds like God is definitely leading you into a new and better direction. Good for you for listening to His voice. I know God will provide for you family. Hang in there! You're doing great :)
