This week’s FMF writing prompt is: EXPLORE




Setting my timer for five minutes, and . . . GO. 

My daughter is a junior this year, so you know what that means . . . We’re all trying to figure out what she’s going to do after high school.

This week has been my kids’ spring break, so we scheduled a couple of college visits, including our first out-of-state visit. My daughter really doesn’t know what she wants to do after school. Neither did I when I was her age. So we’ve decided to adopt a “process of elimination” technique to narrow down some options.

My theory is that with each school we visit, she’ll start to get a better idea of what she likes and doesn’t like, wants and doesn’t want in a college experience – if she goes at all.

As we explore these options, I’m encouraging her to stay open-minded. Even if she doesn’t choose one of these colleges or universities, did she like the general size? Location? Distance from home? What are the pros and cons?

I’m trying to remind myself to stay open-minded, too. Since my kids were little, I’ve tried to remind myself that the most important thing is whether they’re following Jesus or not. Whether she chooses to go to college or not, my prayer is that she would love the Lord her God with all her heart, soul, mind, and strength.
