After college I moved to Denver for a year. After three years of living away from my parents I moved back home. My dad asked me to come home and prepare for marriage.
I didn't think I had a lot of preparation, but was I wrong!
In those three years I had developed an independent spirit, which would not be conducive to a healthy marriage in which I believe an interdependent spirit is most beneficial!
Living at home with my parents I had people who I had to "check-in" with, run my calendar past, and be accountable to. All of these things had become obsolete to me. Living on my own I was my own boss, so moving home and having that structure and authority was a bit of an adjustment.
After moving home I was free (thanks to my parents) to pursue ministry, God, preparing for marriage, and life. God birthed my book from this season of my life!
I know there are those of you who read my blog who are doing just what I did....living at home, preparing for marriage, and not pursing a career at all. Be encouraged to seek the things of the Lord! He will use this season of your life in ways that can not be imagined!
