Decisions Decisions Decisions

I teach about decisions and making the best choices possible for your life. I have found myself in the place of having to making lots of decisions.

I recently found out that there is no more funding for Reality Check. (the non profit that I work for) The board and our executive director had to make some tough decisions. After this week I will no longer be a full time employee. I will be a contract instructor. Which basically means I will only get paid for when I am teaching in the schools. My heart is with Reality Check and to finish out the school year teaching where I am scheduled through the end of the year. I believe in the truth that we teach. And think it is very important for students to get ALL the information. Because I believe if you give them all the information they will make the best decisions possible in their lives. I see that all the time.

So now for the decisions. Like I said my heart is to finish. And that is what I plan to do. But there are things like apartment, insurance, and car payments to deal with. So I am in the process of trying to get of my lease and moving back in with my parents for time being. That of course is not my ideal situation but it works! And I am grateful to have parents who love me and who would allow me to move back in with them. I'm so blessed. Also I think I am going to go back to school. I quit going to school because I felt called to work at Reality Check. But now I think it's time to go back. I'm excited to see what God has in store. And I am still praying about the whole situation and what He wants my next step to be.

I do not believe that God is done with Reality Check. I still think He has great things planned for this wonderful organization. I ask for your prayers for Reality Check, for me, and for all the employees. I also ask that you take a stand and call your schools and your school boards and let them know that you want Reality Check in your school. I praise God for everything He has done and for what He has yet to do.
