As many of you know God called me into nursing 17 years ago; trust me this was a true calling because I didn't have any desire to become a nurse. I argued with God daily for three months explaining to him that He had chosen the wrong girl! Finally, I applied to a wonderful Christian nursing school, as a wife and mom to two little boys, both under the age of three and that is where my nursing story began; other than being a wife and mom this is where my true passion is. All of my nursing educational career has been spent in Christian education from my ASN, BSN and as of this week my completed MSN:)
While I learned a lot over the past two years where I was previously employed as an instructor, and met people I will consider friends for a life-time, it was very challenging for me to work as a nursing instructor and separate God from nursing when I was instructing our future nurses of tomorrow. Though I had discussions with a Christian nursing school, as we were in the middle of adopting Gabriella from China it was not possible to make the switch until she was home, yet God knew the desires of my heart.
I'm now officially working in a Christian school and I'm loving every single bit of it!!!! I feel I'm exactly where God has called me to be and I truly love what I am doing and feel extremely blessed to be where I am....did I mention I'm also working part time so I'm home with our new little princess more...I truly wouldn't change a thing!! I want to thank God for allowing His perfect timing in blessing us with Gabriella, truly the perfect daughter and sister for our family and allowing me to teach at a Christian University where I'm able to serve the God who called me into this wonderful profession so many years ago:)
