Trusting God with Your Job

I was in 8th grade when I knew I wanted to be a teacher one day but wasn’t exactly sure what content area I wanted to teach or what grade level. In 9th grade, I knew within a month that I was going to become an ag teacher one day. As crazy as it sounds, I never changed my mind. Of course, I studied and researched numerous careers within the agricultural field after I found ag as being the most interesting topic, but NONE of them were as appealing to me. I didn’t change my major at all while I was in college. I was built, made, fashioned, formed, BORN to be an agriculture teacher. It became my dream, and now, my dream has come true. God had this plan for my life, and He knew that I was going to be an ag teacher before I knew. He sent me to Varnado to inspire, educate, discipline, advise, and mentor students. I prayed so much throughout the years for God to give me this opportunity and to place me where He wanted me. Not only has He done these things in my life, but He has allowed me to work alongside my husband. You may not know where you want to go or what you want to do with your life. That’s okay! God will reveal His plan for your life. Keep praying and staying in the Word for Him to make it clearer to you. Don’t ignore the doors He opens for you. God made it apparent to me early in life of His calling for me to be a teacher. I didn’t know where He was going to place me until this summer! You may “figure things out” last minute, but it is all in His timing! Dream big because believe it or not, YOUR God is BIGGER!

Hey, y'all! I'm Emily, a simple country girl with a BIG love for the Lord, coffee, sunflowers, cooking, and gardening. I graduated from college one year ago in Secondary Agricultural Education, and I am now fulfilling my dream of teaching agriculture to high school and middle school students while also teaching science in the mix. I am happily married to my college sweetheart, Brad, who doubles as my ag teaching partner! We are newly weds, so we are just getting around to starting a farm. As we add animals to the Cooper Fam and complete projects, y'all will be the first ones to know. :) Tator is our sweet Goldendoodle puppy that we consider to be our first child, and he keeps us on our toes all the time. Between the demands of teaching and life, I enjoy writing and encouraging others in their walk with the Lord sticking tidbits of what I experience along this journey in my writing. I hope that you will follow along and that this blog will help your faith grow longer than a country mile!
