I’m a single, 29 (nearly 30) woman and I think God is calling me to a vocation to marriage.
I currently work full-time in an office as a clerk. I’m in my first year of studying primary/elementary school teaching with another 3 years to go (more time spent in study and a lot more money). I don’t know whether this is a waste of time if I am preparing myself for a vocation to marriage. I want to put my potential vocation to marriage and having children my first priority and not having a career. I am not comfortable with the thought of dropping my children off at school to drive down the road to teach other children at a different school. I love children and I thought that primary/elementary school teaching would be great as it could help me secure decently paid employment in the future. I didn’t really think so seriously with a potential vocation. I wish I had completed my studies straight out of high school or much earlier. The problem is that I am really at that age where I need to be considering whether studying a degree is worth it.
Of course, there are times where I feel anxious about how I will be able to support my future husband and children, particularly in the event that his income is not enough for me to stay at home and educate our children. I do understand that God does not want me to be anxious and that He will provide.
For all you mothers out there, would you mind sharing some light on your experiences and possibly, what you would do if you were in my situation?
This is very much appreciated. You are all in my prayers.
