Dear mother, have you ever felt that you cannot achieve your goals do to your circumstances? Or that now you cannot offer the future your children deserve because you are a single parent or divorced? Or you simply feel success is not for you?
I want to tell you that all those negative thoughts are not true.
Friend, let me talk to you as a Christian, mother of two girls and professional women;First, you are not alone, you have a Father, the King of Kings on your side, you are no orphan. Second, your God created a masterpiece when he made you and you are equipped with everything you need to succeed.
Look what God’s word says:
4 I thank [a]my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, 5 that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge,—Corinthians 1: 4-5
His word states that you have already been enriched with knowledge and speech, present time. It does not say that this will happen one day in the FUTURE. So everything you set your mind to, you can do it!
I want to share a little background of how I came to the United States from my country, Honduras. I won an academic scholarship (the Walton Scholarship) for honor and glory of God. I received my undergraduate degree in Communications in TV and Radio and then a Master’s in Literature.
Through education, God opened the doors of opportunity in the United States. I’ve had the privilege of working for great companies such as Motorola, NBC, Kaplan and Career Education Corporation. I currently work at Keiser University as Director of Marketing and Advertising.
Education is definitely one of the vehicles to success in the corporate environment of today. Especially in this country, an education degree will provide you with better options and allow you to qualify for the career that you really desire.
My friend, if you have not completed your degree or maybe you never had a chance to start, it is never too late. Technology now makes education so accessible and in less time than you think you’ll obtain your diploma.
In the following pages I will share with you scholarship and resources for you or your children, so that you can be on your way to education and your professional success. I will also share important points to consider when selecting a college and a career.
It is imperative that you develop the talents God placed in you. So now my dear mom, you do your part in moving forward with education or training in what you love. And the rest, God’s favor will do!
