Welcome to Sunday Stories! The Sabbath is the perfect time to share spiritual stories as a family. Share one from your life and a simple gospel principle you’ve learned from it! If you need some ideas to get started, read some of ours.
My little family and I are currently living in Rexburg, Idaho. I graduated from BYU-I last July and my husband, Paul, has about a year and a half left. We have a beautiful boy, Hudson. He is now 14 months old. After I graduated I knew I wanted to stay at home and take care of our little guy. However, Paul was beginning to feel the financial pressures of providing for a family of three and also keeping his grades up in his classes. With a lot of prayer we decided I would start applying for apartment management positions. We felt that would be a good fit for our situation.
I began applying for positions I saw online. The first one I saw I didn’t even get an interview. The second and third opportunities I had second interviews for but didn’t end up getting either position. It doesn’t feel good getting rejected three times. And I was ready to give up. Then, one day, while browsing through furniture on Craig’s List, I saw a posting for an apartment management position. There wasn’t a lot of information but I thought, what the heck I’ll send my resume. I got a call the next day asking if Paul and I could come in for an interview that weekend. We went, the interview went great, and we were offered the job! And this particular position ended up being the best out of all four that I applied for and definitely the most ideal for our situation. We were overwhelmed with gratitude and truly humbled as we realized the Lord was aware of our situation and was just waiting to bless us. I was reminded of the simple, yet powerful principle that Heavenly Father knows the end from the beginning. He loves us and has a plan for each of us. A lot of times in life things seem to be going terribly wrong and the world seems unfair, but He is preparing us for something greater.
