Hey everyone, I graduated high school this past year. Since then I have worked odd jobs and I am also a caregiver 2 hours everyday. However, I feel like I am just going through the motions of living life without “living it”. I feel like my life is passing me by and I’m not doing anything that will have lasting results. I have always dreamed of being a maternal nurse but I can’t afford college. I also am in a relationship with an amazing Christian guy and I hope to marry him someday, but I want to do more with my life than get married and have children. Am I being ridiculous? Does anyone else feel the same way as me? I need some advice on what I can do. I still live at home and I am kind of restricted for the time being. I am always bored and I try to find as many things to do to keep myself active, I really hate doing nothing. What can I do? I am at my whits end.

    Start a home business! I hear this question all the time. You are not the only girl out there that feel like they are waiting to start life. Start living NOW! There are so many ways to have a home business. I am married and have four kids and one on the way and I still have two side businesses as well as help my husband in his. I have been helping two young girls as well as a lot of moms set up their own home business just in the past few months. So trust me you are not the only one that wants to do something. Read Proverbs 31:10-31 A virtuous woman gets things done and if you are sitting idle you will not feel useful, it is the way God created us. You should also look into it is a great way to have a ministry right from home. Check it out! Shalom

    Hi Sonnet,
    it’s so important to do something with our life, and have a vision for life! See if you can volunteer somewhere with a Cris pregnancy center or a place that fights against human trafficking( That will give you a vision for life! Or if your parents don’t feel comfortable with you doing any of the above try doing an Imissionary add!

    I just got married a few months ago and moved 5,000 away from my family, friends and everything that I’d ever known. I’m now working at making new friends and getting involved in new ministry plus just enjoy my wonderful hubby! I started a homebased business and make 4 times then what I did at my full time job all from the comfort of my home. I still clean house, and have dinner on the table when my man gets home! It’s been such a blessing!

    Don’t rule out college immediately, because you don’t have enough money. God can do the impossible! If He wants you to go to college, then He can provide the money. I’m with you, I don’t like sitting around doing nothing. I would make this a matter of earnest prayer, and see what God unfolds for your life. Have you thought of mission work? Nursing is a wonderful degree for a young woman to have. It prepares them to be an even more capable mother, and also would be a blessing in the mission field. And I agree with Shalom and Elizabeth. A home business might be the answer. Just pray and see what God has in mind for YOU! 🙂
