New beginnings

Posted by Lizzy Armentrout on August 12, 2012 at 4:55 PM

     For the last 1 1/2 years I have experienced change in just about every area of my life.  When the first changes came along I was mostly shell-shocked then as more came I just became numb.  Eventually through some sweet ladies' Bible studies and through conversations with some dear friends the healing began.  Spiritually I am doing better than I have in years. 

      Probably the biggest change was to go from teaching 6th grade full time to home schooling my only child.  After struggling through two quarters of that my husband and I realized that home schooling is NOT what God wanted for OUR family.  Honestly, as much as I enjoyed spending so much time with my daughter I was miserable.  Those who know me well know that I am a people person. I thrive from interacting with others.  Well, she went back to traditional school, and I was still at home...babysitting two adorable boys but still home.  Thankfully I was hired to do tutoring at our middle school so was finally able to get my people fix.  However there was still a "hole" which I believe came from the fact that I wasn't doing what I was meant to do---teach kids.  If you have followed me on Facebook then you know that God really worked and I have been hired to start teaching 4th grade in just a couple of weeks.  I am going from being a Christian educator for the last 22 years to being a Christian who teaches in the public school system.  I am very excited about what God is doing, but it IS another new beginning.  (Honestly, I should be a pro at those by now!! :|) 

     Tomorrow morning I will start teacher development days at my new job.  I'm excited to see what God has in store for students, future friends, challenges, etc.  But I wouldn't be honest if I didn't say that I am also experiencing a little apprehension.  The unknown is always a little intimidating, isn't it? Thankfully, through all of these changes I have experienced and know for a fact that God is on my side and will help through all of it.
