2 Years Ago
The choice to leave our "normal" life for my husband to go to Law School (when we had been married almost 10 years and had almost 3 kids) was such a life-changer that my jaw still dropped a little when I came across this picture a few days ago.
Did he/we really do that? Even now that we have I marvel that we had the courage, because it frightens me a little if I forget we already did it! The only, I mean ONLY way we could have done this was through our faith. We were searching our souls at the time we started down this path and we were both absolutely committed to "go and do" what the Lord would command for our lives.
It was transforming. It was difficult. It was stressful, anxiety-inducing, and sometimes depressing. But we made it. I can really say that now. We made it through the scariest poverty we've every faced. Our kids stayed fed. I made it through the hardest church calling I've ever served in. The kids made it through living in small, temporary homes, and going to school in a very underprivileged area.
Whew. Can I stop holding my breath? Anyone want tips on making a big life change like this? I've got plenty of them...but they aren't all pretty and fun. But. It can be done. That's my point.
