“Much alone.”


“We must be much alone” … this was the answer I had been waiting for!


Finally! This was a clear directive from the Lord, and it answered my prayers and the cry of my heart!


Throughout the whole month of September, I had felt my faith waning away… not because I did not believe in the Lord, or trust Him, but because I was weary and tired and couldn’t feel His presence anymore.

Since I was young girl, I wanted to be a teacher among other things, but I never pursued any formal education.


My experience with teaching is quite varied though. I have taught Sunday School for 20 years, homeschooled my own children up until 4th and 5th grade, taught history classes, gym classes and art classes at a local homeschool co-op group.
