It can be very easy to get caught up in the commotion of life. There are a million different things going on around us and through our minds each and every day. So where does this leave us? For many, it can be easy to get distracted and pulled away from the true reason we are all here.
God has always been apart of my life. My parents baptized me and brought me up in the Word from birth. As I have grown up, I have learned that this is not the case for most. In fact, as Lutherans, we are the minority in many cases. I have always wanted to live in such a way that my faith shows through. I love that New Beginnings has given me this opportunity. I have never really had the privilege of working with mothers in this capacity. Learning their stories and hearing about their hopes and dreams has been an amazing experience. I have been able to not only share my own faith but also see them grow in their own.
I will be graduating from Wisconsin Lutheran College in 2018 with a degree in both Human Social Services and Psychology. I will then be going on to graduate school to get my masters in social work. The opportunity that New Beginnings has given me not only has prepared me for that line of work, but also has solidified for me the fact that I want to work with children. I am very thankful for my position here and know that I will leave here with so much more than I ever could have thought.
