I've been on quite a crazy ride over the last few months. I haven't been so great at keeping you in the loop, so let me give you a quick run down.
Last summer, I began looking at seminary's. Grad school had been on my mind for years. It was one of those unattainable dreams that you have as a kid. Until, one day... it became attainable. I was entering my senior year of college and grad school seemed like the most logical next step. Sometime around November, I began dedicating time to looking into schools.
The long version of this can be found on my Why Texas post. But just in case a quick re-cap is all you are looking for, here ya go...
In November, God said that I should go to this seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. I kind of thought that He was crazy, and gave Him three reasons I couldn't do it. He quickly squashed all of my reasons and I began to consider SWBTS as an option. In January, I spent a day with my best friend. She really challenged me. And, on my drive home, I committed to following God's lead. In March, I applied to Southwestern and I was accepted in April. In May, I told my parents and in June, I told the world. Finally, in July... I packed up all of my stuff in a Penske truck and drove over 1,000 miles from North Carolina to Texas!
That's where we pick up!! On social media, I so aptly named this journey #NCtoTX. This week, I'll be blogging about all things #NCtoTX... the emotions leading up to the journey, the three day journey and where my head and heart are now. It's going to be a great week!
