I learned last week that I have the opportunity to begin a new chapter in life. Serve Our Youth Network who has been my full-time employer for the last 10 years is under a severe financial strain with two major grants ending this summer. This has forced them to restructure their staff. My position is being cut as of July 31st.
Ordinarily I’d be concerned, but I’m, strangely enough, at peace with what is going on . I shouldn’t say strangely enough because God has promised that when we pray He will give us peace “which surpasses all understanding,” (Philippians 4:7). So he’s just doing what He said he would do. I shouldn’t be surprised.
I see this as an opportunity, not a challenge. I believe I was growing complacent in my role with SOY, and change is never easy and not always welcome especially in our present circumstances with Morgan battling cancer. I don’t let go of things very easy and so God needed to prompt me.
So now I face a new opportunity. What to do next? It seems like God has worked through my writing, social media, blogging and communications work so that seems like the natural next thing. I can envision being self-employed full-time working for a variety of clients like American Principles Project who I currently work for now on a part-time basis. I can also see being full-time with the right organization. I know God will open doors for me to walk through. Please pray for me for wisdom and discernment and for those open doors to be obvious because sometimes I can be pretty dense.
I wanted to include my resume below, please feel free to download it and share with those you know. Feel free to contact me with openings you are aware of or ideas/feedback you may have. I’d appreciate hearing from you.
