Ms. or Mrs.

This year in the yearbook my name was printed as Mrs. Stephens and not Ms. Stephens. Today one of the students I student taught came up to me and informed me of this mistake. She said, "Ya know what Ms. Stephens? They accidentally put your name in the yearbook as Mrs. Stephens. But I really do think you deserve that r in your name."

Maybe you had to be there, but I thought it was hilarious and so sweet! :)

The Problem Solved

I am TOTALLY freaking out about getting a job…again…I know. I have applied for every single job opening in Virginia Beach K-5. For every job opening principals literally receive HUNDREDS of applications! Therefore, I’m totally stressed. For a while I was stressed about interviewing and making sure my portfolio was perfect. But once I found out how hard it is to even get an interview I stopped worrying about the interview and now I am just hoping to even get one. My mom keeps telling me to remember that God’s got in under control. I know this should totally calm me down, but if I’m honest, it doesn’t.

I was sitting earlier thinking about how God IS in control of everything and how He works everything out for good and His glory. When I am stressed I forget this. Well I asked God to help me better understand why bad stuff happens. I then proceeded to watch some TV and randomly decided to go through my books to see if I might have any good kiddo books on my shelves. As I was going through my books I came across a book I haven’t read and really didn’t even know I owned, called God and Evil: The Problem Solved by Gordon Clark. I literally busted out laughing because I know it is not an accident that I came across this book :) Anyway, I’m off to go read…
