I grabbed my pool bag and a book Wonder Struck by Margaret Feinberg and left. Not out of anger or even frustration, but because he needed a day to just sit, think, pray, contemplate, seek advice, … A day to just be.

I hate walking away, but more than that I hate watching him struggle. I want to help him fix it. I want to be his friend, helper, soulmate.
About to eat dinner with my sweet husband. No, I have never given birth. No, we did not adopt. No, we do not foster. Thursday night we hosted our small group bible study. After everyone had left and I was cleaning up, Kyle tells me one of the girls in the youth group is having family problems and may need a place to stay.
It turned out her stepdad had taken her back to her mom from a friends house that night, but last night she stayed with us.
I love the students in my class, but the teenagers in the youth group have me wrapped around their fingers, especially this young lady. Her parents know she is with us! We had an ice cream outing last night, followed by her picking a movie Star Wars to watch at home.
I love that she feels safe with us, wants to stay with us, and knows she is loved by us! It means loving teenagers and helping them the way Christ would in some of the most difficult times in their lives. If you can, stop for a minute and pray for this young lady and her family! She could use some comfort and peace in the storm her family is in.
However, I knew he would be in the ministry one day. Kyle first felt called into ministry as a 16 year old but soon realized that he did not want to be a pastor. He told me this pretty early on in our dating. I knew that eventually God would bring Kyle into a ministry job and he would follow the calling. I was not one of those girls who wanted to marry a pastor or sought out guys with that calling on their lives. I was raised by an architect and an accountant.
However, my Great Aunt Sonya is a school teacher and is married to a pastor. I have always loved and adored her. I enjoy hearing ministry and missions stories when they visit and look up to her. When we first married, Kyle was an accounts receivable clerk for an auto auction. He made decent money and was able to support us until I found a job.

After almost 6 months of marriage he was laid off. Kyle went on the mission trip and God made it very clear that Kyle was supposed to be a youth pastor. He came home and wanted to enroll in school for ministry. I knew at this point that we were in this…together. I want to be involved in his work, ministry, and calling. I go on the youth trips. I attend the conferences and events.

I listen to and encourage our students. Sometimes people ask me what my reaction to Kyle taking a ministry job was. It is more than worth the risk--it's a sacred privilege.
