Oh goodness! July 31st was the last time I posted on my blog. I want to keep this blog more updated. Life has been a whirlwind since then so it's been hard finding time to sit down and blog.
The end of July, the Lord miraculously provided a teaching job for me! I was originally planning on teaching on one high school but it didn't work out because the school had to hire a coach and the coach happened to teach math. We had received a job offer from Navasota, but when we prayed about it, we felt like God wanted us to turn it down. Rollin had a job prospect teaching part-time at Blinn, but it didn't come with benefits. For almost a month I went through a hard time of trusting God to provide for us. It was really scary, especially because I like having financial security.
I applied to some school districts around College Station as my last thread of hope. One thursday morning I received a phone call from the Math Department head at Bryan HS for a job interview. Long story made short...by Friday evening I was offered the job and now I am an Algebra 1 teacher at Bryan HS.
How has teaching been? HARD! I wish I could quit. I know that sounds extreme. I love teaching, it is just really challenging, especially when many of my students are very very very challenging. But God wants me here. He made that clear by the way my whole job situation worked out in the first place. Please pray for my students. Please pray for strength for me.
Rollin and I moved into our apartment at the beginning of August. We love our little place. It feels very restful. All of the windows face the back which is all trees and leaves. Being married has been good and challenging too. I'm so thankful for Rollin. I'm so glad he's the man I get to spend the rest of my life with.
