In October, I knew God was calling me to let go of my classes at the Y. My favorite class was not at a practical time and the class that was a good fit for my schedule was one I did not enjoy teaching enough to leave my kids for nearly 2 hours each morning to teach.
Over Christmas holidays, a pastor friend asked me if I would be interested in leading fitness classes at his brand new full-sized gym at their church. He was willing to hire a sitter for the kids and offered me a substantial raise to what my senior classes had been. It would be one day a week, with the possibility of it becoming a 2x week class. I accepted and we launched our first class on January 9th. I had fifteen at the first two classes. I get to teach the format I enjoy, work with an amazing group of people, pray before class starts, and we will have fellowships once a month much like what we did at the Y. I am so glad to have trusted God and to let go of the other classes. It was not an easy choice, but I know God honored my obedience and he is filling the void I had for some of my favorite friends.
