Okay, so I think I've made it clear that I'm on the perpetual student plan for this degree. I've made it a rule that I don't take two sequential semesters and only take one class each time. I've decided that I need to pick up the pace a bit if I want to wrap up my thesis in time for diaconal ordination. It's either that or skip the thesis (which isn't a requirement but helps if you seek a terminal degree). Anyway, as money is tighter and college looms for my daughter, I have to try to get my studies out of the way or look at going into debt to help her. The first is obviously preferable. Please pray for God's assistance for me in this endeavor. With business travel, family responsibilities, and diaconal formation, I can get a little overwhelmed. I'm hoping to seek an STL at some point, and that point is looking further and further in the future unless God throws us a game changer.
Also, we're looking at a delicate situation with one of our family members. I'm not really at liberty to say what it is, but if you could keep us in your prayers, I would be grateful.
