Walk away from your call?

For 3 1/2 years we have called this home.  And prior to that we had a house for 3.5 years, the house sucked the life out of us.
 We know we were called out of ministry to go save one that Jesus wanted.  Longer story there, but we obeyed.  In church ministry, that was one of our first themes, to Obey. Our last "theme" was "Stand on My WORD and Know Me".  These are my amazing kids!  Most are graduated or in high school now.  We LOVED worship! 

We did as we were asked, after 5 years we left the people that we loved and saw great things happening.  SO, our first rig was a 2007 Cherokee.  This was okay but it wasn't "home".  We spent two summers in this.  Our first time out was Easter 2008.  We were so thrilled!  It was amazing!We lived in it from Easter to Oct. and then we rented a land lease for 6 months the next year.  I was going to school and working full time with those awesome kids above. 
 

When the Lord called us out, we traded this PAID off Rig, for this next one.  Oh, this one was awesome! 16 ft x 14 ft living space.  But it was SO COLD in the winter!  The floor was SOO COLD!  We went camping with our church families and it was a blast!  
 This was an Open Range, 2010 Front living room, back bedroom. 
We were 56 feet long!  We loved this home on wheels but we owed a lot on it. 


We moved into Omaha KOA for 3 months!  There was a ton of snow on the ground and it was 14 degrees out!




This was in Florida, with some of the work-camper friends we made in Milton FL.  They kidnapped us for a wedding.  We were in line at 3 pm. for a 6 pm wedding!  Yes, we are those people!  
These are our friends Kathy and Jim and they live close to where we are currently hanging out in Summerdale Al. 

 So, after having parked this for 3 1/2 years while living in a house. We decided it was time for a Motorhome.  So, we sold it and the truck and bought this TERRIBLE, TURD FILLED TERRA!  This thing was so bad!  But we did put about 8,000 miles on it in 2 mo. It was small and uncomfortable! 

So, the shop called us and said, WE HAVE A RIG for you that will work!  Low miles, no payment. 

We love this rig!  3 1/2 years later and I don't want to move.  Oh we thought we were going to!  We were ready to GIVE up the Call to the Campgrounds that the Lord has placed us on. 

This is Miss Mary.  She is our rescue girl and doctors Rx. 
This is our fur collection!  Mary, Peter, Cleo.

Our first work camping job after the 3 1/2 year house fiasco was to Beaver UT.  This is Bryce Canyon. These other pics are from a small town we found. 







While we hung out in TX, we went to Dinosaur State Park.  It was fun! 




So, my title, Walk Away from your call?  When we are called to something, it never gets revoked.  Oh we can try to walk away but if we listen closely, we can hear that STILL SMALL voice!  No matter what happens, we are to stay in our call.  If it's hard, pray about it.  If it is easy, than you better really pray about it. 



This man in the white beard is Santa Claus.  We had a great conversation with him.



 Mackinac Island was fun.

VIPKID and RV Life!



This is how we do it! My name is Janette M.  Come join this ultimate adventure!  
 I have been with VIPKID for 18 months. I have over 750 kids come and go from my class, I have about 15 regulars but many who come for one or more classes. I work about 20 hours a week.  I love my job, I love my kiddos, and I love my road life.  I took over our dining table!  The shelf is strapped down with luggage straps.  During travel, it is wrapped with a sheet and clipped so nothing flies off.  The lamps are laid down and the computer is set down off the height, but everything stays put. 

Last summer I worked two jobs, this and cleaning at a KOA, it was not always easy but it was an adventure. I have taught from TX to WY, from WY to TN, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Niagara Falls, Gettysburg PA, Elizabethtown PA, Heiskell TN, and most parts in between! 

Small spaces, no problem. Teach from home! Work mornings and/or evenings, take the classes that help you to get started, make up to $22 an hour or $7-$11 a class. Show up every class, prepared and ready to rock someones world and have fun doing it. There are several steps in getting hired. APPLYING TO TEACH WITH VIPKID
 The nuts and bolts: basic requirements

• BA or above
• 1 year teaching experience
• Experience with the American/Canadian school system 

 Stage 1 – Applicant screening: Make sure you give us the full run down. We want to know everything, and we mean it!


Stage 2 – Interview and Demo lesson; Think of this as a fit interview. We can explore whether VIPKID is the place for you! There are TWO methods for taking the interview/demo:
1. FACE-TO-FACE INTERVIEW with someone in Beijing, followed by a demo lesson. It will last around 30 minutes in total.
2. RECORDED INTERVIEW and submit the demo lesson. If you choose this format there won’t be anyone in the classroom with you, so you must use your imagination and classroom experience to teach the lesson. You will have 10 minutes to cover 10 slides. If you get through this stage you will receive a Conditional Contract, contingent on you
passing Mock Class and Initial Teacher Preparation. 
 Stage 3 ITP– Initial Teacher Preparation
The goal in this stage is to pass a quiz. The training videos take a few hour to watch and they will teach you all about cancelling classes, curriculum, scheduling and policies. You must get 80% or above on the quiz.

Stage 4 – Mock 1 and Mock 2 Mocks Classes are an hour long, and they are essentially pretend classes designed to see how you handle the online classroom. 

 For Mock Class 1 you will teach two levels: Level 2 (Beginner) Letter Xx; Level 5 (Intermediate)“My Country, My Culture”. You start by teaching Level 2 slides for 12 minutes, then there are 10 to 15 minutes for feedback, then you teach Level 5 slides before receiving final feedback. In this stage you will be assessed with two different rubrics. If you pass for Beginner levels, you may start teaching these levels and after 100 classes, you can apply for a level certification to teach older students. And vice versa. You may also be invited to take Mock Class 2. 
 For Mock Class 2 you will teach just one level, which is the one you scored higher for in
Mock 1 stage. For Beginner levels, you will teach the Letter Pp. For intermediate levels, you
will teach new slides called “Earth: Our Home”, which talks about environmental protection.
If at any point you feel like you are receiving contradictory information, or are confused by
the process, please email teachvip@vipkid.com.cn.

Those voices in my head are not of God!


Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness...

The Battle is the Lords!

A voice somewhere out of nowhere comes and tells you you are not worthy, you need to just leave this earth and it will be better.  The battle of voices rage in your head, who do you believe? The devil or Jesus?

 I choose to believe the Lord.  He is the author and finisher of our life, our faith, our cornerstone, our everything.  

When the enemy attacks, it's real, it's not imagined.  It's a loud voice in your head that just seems to repeat itself!  These attacks come when fear starts to creep in.  Fear is from an unknown source that seems like it knows why the fear, but the attacks, man! Fear is not real, it is imagined and its foundation crumbles, it has nothing but a grip and you can release it.  It may seem powerful, but I tell you it is not!  You can control your thoughts!  We have to take back what the devil steals!  Every. Single. Time!

 I don't need a drug for this. I just need Jesus!  I need to remember that I have been through the fire and that He has walked with me through that time. 

 What I do is start praying the blood of Jesus over myself!
i plead the blood of jesus - Google Search


  I tell the devil I am the Lord's, I belong to HIM and He has a plan!  He has a plan to prosper me and I am his.  He created me in my mother's womb and created me in HIS image.  Those voices leave in a huff but they leave.  There are so many verses that I say to myself when those voices of dread and demons set their sights on me. Psalms is my go to.  It reminds me of who I am in Him!   Sometimes, it is hard for some to fight the fight that He has set before you.  
The devil is running rampart. He's on a mission to kill, steal, and destroy. In name of Jesus, devil I bind every evil spirit. Mission aborted! We're covered by the blood of Jesus. I cancel every assignment. No weapon formed against us shall prosper. In the name of Jesus, Hallelujah!

Psalm 23 Amplified Bible (AMP)

The Lord, the Psalmist’s Shepherd.

A Psalm of David.

23 The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, to guide and to shield me],
I shall not want.

He lets me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still and quiet waters.

He refreshes and restores my soul (life);
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
for His name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the [sunless] [a]valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort andconsole me.


You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You have anointed and refreshed my head with [b]oil;
My cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell forever [throughout all my days] in the houseand in the presence of the Lord.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace
Ephesians 1:7 NIV

Ephesians 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
me.

Psalm 139 Amplified Bible (AMP)

God’s Omnipresence and Omniscience.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

139 Lord, you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me.

You know when I sit down and when I rise up [my entire life, everything I do];
You understand my thought from afar.

You scrutinize my path and my lying down,
And You are intimately acquainted with all my ways.

Even before there is a word on my tongue [still unspoken],
Behold, O Lord, You know it all.

You have enclosed me behind and before,
And [You have] placed Your hand upon me.

Such [infinite] knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too high [above me], I cannot reach it.

Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?

If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead), behold, You are there.

If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10 
Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will take hold of me.
11 
If I say, “Surely the darkness will cover me,
And the night will be the only light around me,”
12 
Even the darkness is not dark to You and conceals nothing from You,
But the night shines as bright as the day;
Darkness and light are alike to You.
13 
For You formed my innermost parts;
You knit me [together] in my mother’s womb.
14 
I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was being formed in secret,
And intricately and skillfully formed [as if embroidered with many colors] in the depths of the earth.
16 
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were appointed for me,
When as yet there was not one of them [even taking shape].
17 
How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 
If I could count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with You.
19 
[a]O that You would kill the wicked, O God;
Go away from me, therefore, men of bloodshed.
20 
For they speak against You wickedly,
Your enemies take Your name in vain.
21 
Do I not hate those who hate You, O Lord?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22 
I hate them with perfect and utmost hatred;
They have become my enemies.
23 
Search me [thoroughly], O God, and know my heart;
Test me and know my anxious thoughts;
24 
And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me,
And lead me in the everlasting way.  

Isaiah 54:17 Amplified Bible (AMP)

17 
“No weapon that is formed against you will succeed;
And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn.
This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord.

I am comforted by these scriptures and knowing that HE knew me before I was even a twinkle in anyone's eye or heart.

We are HIS and He is ours!  Suicide does not belong to us!  We are overcomers!  We are fearfully and wonderfully made and if others can not see that, that my friend is their problem and not yours!  Hold your head up high and proud because you are created in HIS (God's) image!  If you need help, find someone to talk to, call the suicide hotline and talk, they are there to listen.  Genesis - In the beginning God created mankind in His own image ... and it was very good.
