A Time of Learning (#MoT - Day #13)
When my daughter went away to college, she had plans of becoming Librarian. Library Sciences is a Master's degree. In order to be a librarian in public schools, you have to get your Bachelor's degree in Education. She entered the University after completing an Associate's degree, so she was able to immediately start taking Junior level classes. After one semester (learning education was more about classroom management than teaching), she knew that being a school librarian was not in the cards for her. Her other passion in school was theater, so she changed her major to Drama and the rest, as they say, is history. I am thankful that she realized so early that she would not enjoy an Education Degree. I am also thankful that she was able to pursue something that brought her a lot of joy. Here is her take on her college experience.
"I'm very thankful for the time I was able to spend in the Drama department at TWU. I learned so many new skills, met people VERY different than I had grown up with, and discovered a real faith of my own. Jesus met me in the most difficult season of my life so far, and He brought me into a new understanding of who He is and who I was. I learned how to go beyond what I thought I was capable of in so many areas (including wiring my very own plug convertor from scratch)! He gave me a few dear friends and plenty of people who challenged me and caused me to become more deeply rooted in what I believed. I will be forever grateful how the Lord grew me there!"
