The preschool is deeply significant to me as a person living out my calling in a vocation that I believe God made me for. Concordia Lutheran Preschool has been the fulfillment of a dream God put in my heart almost 20 years ago. He has been so good to bring such a dream to fruition.
Seventeen years ago, God also brought about my calling to be a wife to a Godly man, a man of deep integrity, a man who has made me better in every imaginable way. Twelve years ago, God blessed our dream of being parents by giving us Hannah, then Isaac and then Eli. My family is the most important part of my life, and my vocation of wife and mom is first and foremost. Never in our life plans did we envision Aaron not being part of it. Our harsh reality is that without anything short of a miracle, Aaron will be in heaven with our Savior much sooner than we would plan. And so, we look ahead together as husband and wife to decide what our family needs to do in light of our upcoming circumstances.
We love Concordia. It has been one of my deepest pleasures to birth the preschool and grow it through God’s blessing to what it is today. It is thriving, strong and sharing the love of Jesus with your children each day. I have had the luxury of working in this ministry because we have not been dependent upon my income. However, our family is preparing ourselves for that to change. And so, at the end of this academic year I will be ending my employment at Concordia Lutheran Preschool in order to pursue employment that will provide for the financial needs of my family.
This has been a deeply painful decision. I love this preschool and each child that has walked through its doors. It will be difficult to say goodbye. Please know that I fully plan to finish strong. Each and every day I will pour into your children a love of learning, a joy of discovery and share with them the love Jesus has for each of them.
