Message from Parent Representatives Tammie and Dean Myslivecek
Spring is such an exciting time of year! New life outside, change of sports seasons, outdoor activities, and we get a fresh start. It is the same in the life of our college students. Spring brings preparation for a new semester. At the very least, it brings registering for new classes, clarifying a major, or changing to a new one. For some, it means selecting an internship or GRADUATION and an employment search begins!
During each of these various stages, our kids need our support and encouragement. The decisions they are making will prepare them for a career loving and serving God. It is sometimes the most difficult thing to offer loving advice and let them make the final decision in which direction to go. It can also be extremely rewarding watching them take flight.
We had a wonderful opportunity to spend one-on-one time with our Junior at RWC. She was researching internship possibilities and working on a project for a business class that asked her to present her dream business. She found a gracious business owner who had recently opened up her dream business!
Listening to her dreams and seeing her work through the process of preparing for the interview was wonderful! She willingly accepted direction and creative ideas from her parents, but in the end it was all her own. It was interesting to see what advice she used what she set aside. In the end she received an A on her business project and was hired for an internship this last week!
Our HS Sophomore recently visited RWC. It seems far away, but when I look at the checklist of what needs to be done: applications, visitations, standardized test, good grades, job, sports, and volunteering, Fall 2015 doesn’t seem far at all. All of our children are different! Some will take the opportunities and decisions and run with them. Others will seek us out and glean from our experience. Then there are some who constantly need a little prodding to seek out their own future and make their own choices.
I find comfort in the reminder from Deuteronomy 11:19-21a that what we have spent time teaching our children will stick with them and shape them. I find encouragement to continue this process of letting go in Galatians 6:9, “So let us not grow weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up!” Keep up the good work!
