After almost two decades of running my own construction business, I decided I wanted to do something different for a living. For over a year, my wife and I prayed for this while still successfully running our company. A heart’s desire was to teach and train others using my experience and education in this field.
One day, I had the thought to call a local trade school near us and see if they had any positions available. I left a message with one of the school’s executives expressing my desire to teach and asking if they could use my help. Before the day ended, the president of the organization called to inform me that they just had a position open up and to invite me in for an interview the next day.
Not only did he say I was a perfect fit for the job, he offered me the position on the spot. I checked with my wife and we decided I would take the job, but we needed a higher salary than what was offered. When I informed him what I needed, he replied, “Yes. I can make that happen.” I would be teaching students from different high schools an introduction to the construction trades. Not only am I now on the same schedule as my wife, but I also have summers off. No one can deny that God worked mightily to get the perfect job for me. He supplies all our need, always!
