I got the call yesterday. I’ve been accepted into the M.Div program at North Park Theological Seminary, my denomination’s school!
*breathes into paper bag*
I’m elated. And terrified. And praying HARD for scholarships, so I can afford to do this without taking out more student loans than I can pay off before retirement. (Laugh if you want, but even if I went full-time, my oldest will be out of high school before I’m out of seminary!!! #YesIKnowILookSoYoungIGotItFromMyDad)
Now, I’ve got to finish up my work at Northwestern, and get some other ducks in a row (although in reality, my life is more like herding cats than lining up ducks–but whatever).
I’d welcome prayers as I finish my work at Northwestern, apply for scholarships, and try to discern the best path forward.
I am so excited.
And also overwhelmed.
But mostly excited.
I may be in shock.
