"I started a degree just out of high school, but then family plans took me on another adventure!  I was a stay-at-home mom and homeschool parent for our three children.  After they left our nest, I found myself lost with the question "now what?". God opened doors for me at our church that got me interested in counseling couples and individuals with a variety of issues. After a few years of counseling in our church, God laid upon my heart to go back to school. I didn't know why He was laying this on my heart as I didn't have the time working full time for a Christian camp, counseling in my spare time at church, our family farm and family. Also added to this was the cost of going to school.  Both big problems to keep me out. So, I prayed, "Lord, if you want me to go back to school, you are going to have to make a way". Boy, did He make a way.  My husband found another job in another state making us sell our farm. Leaving my full-time job, my church and that farm gave me the time I needed to go back to school. "But Lord", I said, "what about the cost? Do you want us to go back into debt after getting out for you?" Liberty helped with that problem by providing me our military discount and book vouchers! Now I am on my way to attaining a degree in science/psychology of crisis counseling. My heart melts for people, especially soldiers with PTSD. I want to serve our military and others with helping people who have suffered trauma. When God speaks, He means what He says! I am so thankful to God and Liberty and the military for making my dream of getting my degree a reality!"
