Today was a big day.....I gave my two weeks' notice. My life is taking a different path and I am walking away from something and a career where I have been completely comfortable for the past 5 years of my life. I have ALWAYS said that my dream job would be teaching children OR taking all my volunteer work and doing it full time. One of those dreams came to fruition over the past few months.

Starting on Monday August 17 I will be going to work for the Oklahoma League for the Blind. They have government contracts that they hold and train and assist the visually impaired to work on these projects full time. I will be taking over this role. My job will entail many different details and I know it is going to be challenging and rewarding all at the same time! I am so unbelievably excited about this opportunity and I know it was the right decision.

My current employer was very gracious in offering me to take some time off before starting my new gig! So Wednesday will be last day. I will definitely miss the guys I work with but am thankful for the time off and excited about my new opportunity!

I know everything is God's timing and this couldn't have come at a better time for me! I can't wait!


  1. CONGRATS! How exciting. You will love the non-profit's such an awesome feeling going to bed every night knowing you've made a difference in someone's world. Congrats :)

  2. Big changes can bring big blessings! Good luck with your new opportunity! God is Good!

  3. Hey! I just found your blog this morning and I enjoyed reading it! Congrats! I did something similar last December. I quit my job of two years to finish my masters in education! Now I'm a second grade teacher and have NO regrets! :) Blessings and good luck!

  4. Hey, I know alot about the OK League for the Blind I am a member of the Oklahoma Junior Hospitality Club and they applied for a grant from us!
    Love your blog! Good luck with the new job & THANKS!
