How I make that money, honey!

How I make that money....

When I started college back in 1999, I thought that I would be a pre school teacher when I "grew up." But after 2 quarters of college and working at a day care for 1 year...I decided that wasnt the best plan for me. I HATED school, and I wasnt sure that I wanted to take care of other peoples kids ALL day long.

So I decided that I would go to Beauty school! It was there that I found my passion: Making people feel beautiful, and helping them see their God given beauty. I have been doing hair on and off for over 10 years and I LOVE it.

Recently God has allowed some BIG changes in my life....while I still do hair sometimes...my fulltime job for the past 7 years has been in Radio, I was a radio sales rep and then a promotions coordinator for a group of 9 radio stations. It was an awesome job and I learned SO much about marketing and copy writing. But then God told my husband and I that I needed to be somewhere to better serve Him...So I quit my job. Without. having. another. job. This was one of the SCARIEST things I have EVER done. But, God promised me that He would be faithful.

The day after I gave my two weeks notice, I was offered a job at Life Choices Clinic.
I had just started volunteering there, and they had a position opening up called the "Development Assistant" the details included: Marketing, donor management, social media content creation and management and some other duties. But, OH MY WORD this was everything that I had been doing for the past 7 years! God had been preparing me this whole time for THIS JOB! Life Choices Clinic is a Non Profit Christian ministry that offers free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, life skills classes, and counseling to Women in a unplanned pregnancy situation. We provide hope, and choices for them in a very difficult situation. We are pro-life, and we speak love into their lives. We are the compassionate face of the pro-life movement, no hype, no politics. Just love, and support. I LOVE my job...its the best job I have ever had. EVER.

So thats my job...I am the development assistant for Life Choices Clinic! Our website is here, www.lifechoicesclinic.info  if you want to learn more about what we do!

This past week my husband and I house sat for my cousin....which was VERY nice because we were able to have some alone time (since we life in my parents house, with my dad). We spent alot of time together talking and just being together. It was very good for our relationship!

My husband is SO funny...here are some of the things that completely cracked me up this week.

As we drove by this:

the hubs said " hey babe, dont you think that those hay bales are like huge giant fruit roll ups for cows? " I looked at him and said "huh?" He said " you know because its rolled up, and its like a treat for the cows...like a huge fruit roll up!" I laughed So hard....then we saw a truck with a huge load of hay bales like that and he said "its like a huge case of fruit roll ups!" He's crazy.

During dinner one night, he was explaining to me how women have it so much easier than men, because they dont get judged on how the eat or if they itch themselves in public...and how pillow shams should be outlawed from being on beds. Haha, I am such a lucky girl!
Happy Monday!!
