It is with the heaviest of hearts that I bring you news of my resignation as Director of Immanuel Lutheran Day School. It’s been the toughest decision I’ve had to make in my life. I love this ministry with everything in me. It’s never a good time or an easy thing to do. After 5 wonderful years, I feel God encouraging me to focus on renewing my spirit and being a more present mom and wife to my sweet and supportive family. My time here has been such a blessing. I’ve had the opportunity to meet some incredible kids, develop lasting relationships with teachers and families and be able to witness my own children experiencing the love of Christ through this ministry. Every day working here, I’ve experienced the Holy Spirit in action. I’ve felt the love of Jesus and constantly experienced the warmth and peace of our Heavenly Father. He is definitely at work here and will continue to be the guiding force behind ILDS. Having such a loving and capable front office will make it easy for the next person to step in and learn about our community. I have total faith that God will provide the right person for this incredible position. The Board is handling the hiring process and has been the most dedicated and loving Board we’ve had. Please pray with me as we look to the future leadership of our Day School.
I am leaving my post at ILDS to be the Director of the Hutto Education Foundation. It’s a part-time position that lends itself to me being a more present mother. I’ll remain at ILDS to get the new school year started and to make sure everything is in place and settled before this change. Friday, August 28 will be my last day.
I can’t tell you enough how much your love and support have meant over the years. The conversations, emails, notes, hugs, smiles, etc have all been the inspiration to keep me going strong. I value each of you and your families and will always hold my time here close to my heart. Your kids are incredible. You should all be so proud.
Anchored in Christ always,
