What is your dream career?

Day 4: What is your dream career?

This may seem ridiculously obvious to some people and just plain ridiculous to others, but my crazy "out there" dream career would be if I became a younger version of Beth Moore.  I love to write and I have a passion for helping others and for raising P1010049_2.JPGawareness for difficult issues like poverty and self injury.  I would love to write devotions and Bible Studies and use the gifts that God has given me to help young girls grow closer to Him.

If that doesn't work out, I wouldn't mind becoming a successful author. :) Not necessarily to the extent of Stephenie Meyer or J.K. Rowling, but successful enough to make a living.

On the side, I would love to travel to Africa with a humanitarian organization, serving the kids and raising awareness for their issues with my writing as well.

And finally, I wouldn't mind being a blogger.  As a career.  That might sound bizarre, but there are professional bloggers out there who write things like I do and get paid for it.  That would be very nice.

It makes me chuckle to see all of my multiple and crazy aspirations.  Does it make you chuckle?  Probably.  Above all, I know that God will help me to find joy in whatever I do with my life.

What is your dream career?


  1. Oooh! A blogging career would be pretty cool. Especially if it means I can get away with keeping my terrible sleeping schedule!

    Really, though, I'd probably just do that on the side to make some extra cash.

    I think my dream career right now would involve working for a non-profit organization that benefits children (like Show Hope)... something that would also give me the opportunity to travel and work abroad (like in an orphanage on occasional trips), but I'd also like the flexibility to open up my own coffee shop.

    Right now though, working at Starbucks and/or babysitting/ being a nanny are pretty good options!

  2. My dream career (as of right now) -
    A photo-journaslist for National Geograpic.
    I would really enjoy the travel aspect of it:)
