One of the reasons I wanted to get into grad school was to become a teacher. I love teaching and I love my seminary kids. I feel like I can do a lot of good as a teacher.

Maybe I was wrong.

After finding out I didn’t get into grad school, I found out one of my kids just moved in with her boyfriend. She’s 17. Her boyfriend is 19, still in high school and works at Wal-Mart. (not that there is anything wrong with that) But he got accepted into Shepherd University and has decided against it now. The place she lives is filled with drugs.

She deserves better.

All of those kids deserve better. In fact all kids deserve better.

“Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God.” (D&C 18:10)

I know I wasn’t her full-time teacher. Blah blah. But could I have said or done something different that could have helped her?

Did I fail?

Ugh, I don’t want to hear any of the crap about free agency… I know everyone can choose, but maybe I could have altered the choice if

Maybe not getting into grad school was just another sign meant to let me know that teaching just isn’t my thing…
