College??? and hiking....again!

So...lately, I have been in a bit of a quandry. I had always kind of had it decided that I was going to go to college for a major in music and become a piano teacher. Recently, it has seemed that things have been pointing towards me becoming a midwife instead. It happened because my mom and I were talking about how much I love foaling out the horses, and then I mentioned how much I would love to be a vet. One problem...it's really hard to be a vet and raise a family! She looked at me and said, "What about being a midwife?" I was like, "Oh...yeah!" So now I'm all confused about where to go to college because I do not want to give up my piano, but it will be really crazy going for a nursing degree, and doing music at the same time! I would love prayer for all this because I am kind of having a hard time thinking through it all... The other whole aspect is the financial side...my grandparents may help if I went to Hillsdale, but it is in Michigan, and my mom doesn't want me going out of state because she is afraid that I will marry someone and never come back to Arizona!!! We had some good laughs at her over that statement...

On a lighter note, we went hiking again on Sunday...this time in the rain! We were going to go Saturday, but things got crazy, and so we postponed it until Sunday. Sunday morning dawned...cloudy and pouring! I was still dying to go, and so me and Dad, Tyler, Sadie, David, and Noah went. We got soaked, but had a blast and found a really pretty spring back in the mountains. Everything was SO GREEN and beautiful.
Here is the spring...there was a little waterfall that was so pretty!
On the way back down the mountain, we were so hungry that all we could talk about was food. And when we got back to the truck, the lightning started so bad that we had to drive all the way back home before we could grill the hamburgers. It was a little frustrating, but we still had fun.

  1. Hi, Lisa!
    Just reading this post I had to comment and leave a word or two. ;)

    I think its great you have such a passion for the piano! There is no hiding it for you! lol My teacher always tells me I need to go to college and get a degree in music arts to be a piano/voice teacher. If this is what the Lord leads you to do, you will do very well! But prayer is #1!-- Looking at the medical side of things, I had no idea you had the desire to be a midwife! For the longest time I wanted to be a pediatrician,(my mother was hardly apposed seeing I could use my medical skills, 'in-case' I ever married a missionary, I could "mend" the ill) then God opened my eyes and made me realize why that would be no good. Then! my DAD said, what about looking into being a midwife? Same reaction as you "oh..YEAH!" haha Learning I could shadow a midwife I was very interested. Now I know what I want to do! I want to(Lord willing, and I believe it is his will) get married, be a photographer, and be a baker(whats the word I'm looking for? the more sophisticated term for baker?! lol not culinary arts, I don't want a restaurant;)) and, of course have children.'Cause all that comes naturally to me! Just like these things come naturally to you. I guess what I am saying is, I was all confused for awhile just like you! Prayer, and passion for what you want. Then, GO FOR IT!..According to God's will. :)

    I remember you briefly telling me you guys were going hiking that day...crazy children you guys! Sounds like a lot of fun tho! :)

    I totally just wrote you a novel and don't blame you if you don't read it!
    God Bless,'
