The Millennial Homemaker

The musings of a Stay at Home Mom

At The Crossroad

I am standing at a crossroad in my life.

For the past 19 years I have had the choice to stay at home and raise my children. I gave up a career in technology to nurture young lives. I have loved this time at home. The days were long, but the years were short.

Now that I have two older children in college, and my two younger children are well established in school (one in 11th grade and one in 6th grade), I have decided to change the trajectory of my life journey.

I am officially a Kindergarten Teacher.

And I am scared. Excited, but scared.

All of the paths I have walked have lead me to this crossroad. I completed my Bachelors degree online. I have completed 40 credits of Post-Bacc credits in Elementary Education. And, now I will be completing more credits in Early Childhood Education to fulfill the state requirements for certification.

This is all said in reassurance that the millennial homemaker in me is still me. I still love taking care of my children and my home. It will always be above any outside career.

So, as I journey on this new path, I ask for your prayers. I covet your positive thoughts.

Many people go to college and change careers five times in their lifetime. I have been fortunate enough to pursue my passion in education all along. First, I poured into my own children through homeschooling. Now, I am pouring into my community through public schooling.

I have no idea how long this new journey will last. But, I can assure you that I will enjoy it. Life is short. Life is beautiful. Life is messy. But, most of all, Life is good.

The crossroad is paved with amazing expectations and intentions. And my heart will be in it every step. 100%.
