Where it all began.

It all started with a single commercial.

The next thing I knew I was sitting for the first time in class as a court reporting student.

The journey has been long and at times frustrating. I've been in school it seems so long that it's hard to remember not being in court reporting school.

Sometimes it's hard to give 100% and not feel burn't out when you work full time and going to school three nights a week and trying to balance life in general. There is so so much this school requires of you. It is hard and demanding.

It's easy to want to give up and question God's plan.  But if God calls you to it, he'll get you through it, right???

This is the most recent commercial that just came out. Funny because one my teachers is the lady talking to the group at the very beginning, ha!

I never thought the journey would take so long. I try to remember that all of this will be worth it in the end.

The rewards are great if you can just persevere.  I've had alot of obstacles along the way mentally and physically that left me thinking if I'm going to be able to do this, much less see it to completion.

I've had such a great support system and people cheering me on and letting me know I CAN do this and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

The Stenotype Institute has been my second home. But I'm so ready to move on to the next season of my life, spread my wings, be successful in the career and make a life for myself and be all that I can be. After typing that, realize how totally cheesy that sounds, lol.

The future is at my fingertips, literally, ha.

I guess I say all this to say.... If you're on a journey, questioning the journey. I feel you, I really do.

So I would covet your prayers. To complete and press on toward the goal and win the prize. Philippians 3:14.

(and Lord willing you'll see me in a convertible like the girl in this video when all is said and done, haha)

Hang in there girl! I know how hard it is to work full time and go to school and have other life demands on you. I truly do. I remember feeling just the way you do. But don't you give up!!! You are so close! There is nothing you can't do!!
