I got a real job today - I am the new Senior Sales Associate (ie. assistant manager) at the Family Christian Bookstore in Fayetteville AR. I start on Wednesday. I am absolutely amazed at how God worked all of this out. Six weeks ago, I applied for this job, but was told it wouldn't work with my teaching schedule at Providence. Well, when I got back down here a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that they were still looking, so I called again. They said to wait a couple of weeks to call back because they were hiring a new manager who would hire the new person. I called on Monday, he called back on Thursday, and I headed down for an interview after school. The manager called back early Friday afternoon to tell me that they would like to hire me.
It is a full time job with decent pay, excellent benefits, and they are willing to work with my teaching schedule. I start on Wednesday. I am so happy because it is a no-stress job that will take very little time to get up to speed with. I will be quite busy, but at least I will be able to provide for my family and stay connected with people who might be interested in helping us launch Vintage.
God has really been gracious again!
