For the Stay-At-Home Graduate {link-up}

About a week ago I shared with HEAV’s blog about the road of being a graduate AFTER the big day. And not just any graduate, but a stay-at-home daughter. I hope you will stop by and read it. I also hope you find some encouragement, too!



“To all of you graduates, who have marked this exciting event in your life – you’re finished! And congratulations to you! A few months ago I wrote a blog post about the time leading up to graduation. But for some, there can still be as many questions after graduation as there are before. I feel a desire to write to daughters–stay-at-home daughters to be exact–who aren’t heading off to college this fall like most everyone else.

 What to do? You know college isn’t it, but what is? Well, I can’t tell you what to do. I think for us, stay-at-home daughter-hood will look different for each lady. But I can tell you a little bit about how I went through those first few months after graduation, and I hope that this will help you and encourage you as you seek God’s direction.

 The first two weeks or so for me were difficult. Every single day I would just try to adjust to this new phase of life in which I didn’t have to get up each morning to get to work on the English paper I hadn’t finished the night before, or to take that science test I had been studying for.

It was all done. Completed. Finished.”
