Okay friends, I need some prayer, and maybe some advice. I have a job offer which I am actually considering. I wasn’t looking for a job, I have a full time job at home! But the Lord has presented an opportunity which I feel He is leading me to seriously consider.
A local Church is in need of a Daycare Director, and a dear friend of mine called me and told me that she thinks I’d be the perfect person for the job. They aren’t advertising the job opening, they have just been praying (for the past 7 months) that the right person would come along.
The only reason I am even considering this job is because I would be able to take all of my children to work with me. The office is a nice sized room, with an equally nice sized room right off of it, like a side office. I could set up Jada in the side room to do her homeschooling in. And there is plenty of room for me to keep baby Xia with me too. The 2 yr. old room is directly across from the Director’s office; that’s where Ty would be.
The hours are flexible. They said they’d like me to be there 30 hrs./wk. The current Director has been there for like 25 yrs. and will be retiring in the end of December. They are looking for somebody young and fresh to come in and modernize the facility. I am actually full of ideas, and excited about the possibilities!
I’m surprised that they are even considering me, seeing as I’d be bringing three children to the table. But, they are. I think I would really LOVE the job. I think.
And a huge blessing would be that it would almost double our current income. We could put all of my salary towards paying off our home. That would be awesome!
So, anyways, please pray that I make the right decision. Pray that the Lord will make it abundantly clear after I visit the daycare this week. Pray that I don’t get into something that I can’t handle.
But wouldn’t it be wonderful if I got the job and everything worked out nicely!
*I feel the need to add that if I do get this job, I still plan on continuing everything I am trying to do at home. I will still be striving for a more self sufficient lifestyle. This job would enable us to achieve that dream even sooner. So don’t worry, the blog will continue!!
Update: Although they did end up wanting to hire me for the position, I decided not to take the job. It would require too much time away from my family and my goals here at home. Thank you for your prayers. As nice as a second income would be, I know I’m making the right choice.
