Prayer Request

At the end of last year, I asked for prayer regarding my job situation. God was faithful and provided for us by allowing me to work for LSU full-time another 6 months. However, we are now at a crossroads again. My LSU contract is up on June 30th and is not being extended. I officially gave my resignation today. It feels like the end of an era for me, having worked there for over 10 years. It has been an emotional rollercoaster of sorts. However, I am sure that God has a plan for me & my job and He has been faithful (and will continue to be faithful) to take care of us financially.

As it was 6 months ago, I currently have 2 prospective job opportunities. And also, as it was 6 months ago, they are eerily similar. There is a job opening at church for the Children's Ministry assistant. I would work with the Children's Ministry assisting with many secretarial duties in that department and working with the children, of course. And you know how much I love kids, so I think this would be a good fit for me. The job would be 32 hours/week, which is considered full-time so I would receive benefits. I have an interview with the Children's Minister and the Children's Ministry Associate tomorrow morning at 10 am. So just pray that everything will go well (I hate interviews, by the way!). However, I know both of them fairly well, so hopefully I won't be too nervous.

The other job prospect is with a company called Team Halo. The owners of this company are the same people that own Fox Web Co, the company I've been doing work on the side for. I met with them last Friday and they presented a new opportunity to work with them as a personal assistant. They do a lot of public speaking for marketing consulting and are starting to focus mainly on that. This job would entail a lot of administrative work... keeping calendars, travel arrangements, putting together packets, etc... and I would also be the Website admin for their site, This job would be a salaried position and the work hours would be flexible, especially since Andy & Marianna travel a lot. I would also be able to continue to work from home (a great perk in itself)!

Please pray for Eric & I as we make this decision in the next month or so. I don't want to rush into anything because we feel the pressure financially. I just want to allow God to work through this situation and allow us to make the right decision. Thank you for your prayers and support, as always!

Your prayer request reminded me of a song that we used to sing in choir. In His time...In His time...He makes all things beautiful in His time. I think that is what you want and that is what I will pray for b/c we know not what the future holds; but we know who hold the future. Love and prayers. MoM
