One thought on “My Ordination

  1. Mrs.Kathleen M. Arnold, RN, FCPI

    Hi Deacon Miller, I saw you on EWTN tonight and was impressed with your journey. What caught my attention is the fact that you were attending two different schools at the same time. I am doing the same thing. I became a nurse 7 years ago and then 2 years ago went back to school to obtain a bachelor degree. I will have my degree next May. Then, last year my ob/gyn asked me to learn the Creighton Model of NFP. Then offered me an opportunity to work with her as a nurse practitioner, which means more school to get a masters degree. You mentioned a desire or feeling of happiness and that you struggled with school. I’ve prayed and keep praying for guidance to know what God wants of me. It’s a lot of work. I honestly don’t have a desire, I just don’t want to learn anymore… I feel like giving up, but I wont. I made a commitment to others to do both, become certified in the Creighton Model of NFP and a nurse practitioner in ob/gyn. It’s a struggle for me to do my homework. It’s not easy. Like tonight, I was doing my school work,while watching EWTN ( I love the journey home) then saw you announce your website.. stopped school work.. and came to your site. I do have friends who encourage me to continue, I just don’t have the desire. So, with all this said, pray for me please. Back to answering questions. I like your website and congratulations on becoming a deacon.
