What was your college major? And did you end up taking a different path?
That's the question today on Working Mommy Wednesday.
I have a short answer and a long answer.
First, the short answer.
I majored in political science and minored in history. And I loved every minute of it. I could have stayed in college forever. Which is why I didn’t get a real job after graduation. Instead, I went to law school. (And, for the record, law school isn’t nearly as fun as college.) But I do love practicing law.
That was the short answer.
There’s also a longer answer – there’s more to the story.
I didn’t just major in political science in college. I had something else up my sleeve. Something more important.
In college, I majored in Jesus.
That’s right. College was a defining moment for my spiritual journey. I decided in college that I was going to follow a guy with long hair and sandals who said he was God. A guy who walked the earth over 2000 years ago and gave his life for others. A guy who claimed to raise from the dead.
I had always believed in Jesus. But college is when I decided I was going to take him seriously. He became my major for almost 4 years.
But that was almost 20 years ago.
If you looked at my life today, what would you say I am majoring in?
The American Dream?
I’m not sure you would say I’m majoring in Jesus. As much as I want to major in Jesus, life has become so complicated. Most days, he gets crowded out by other demands. Most days, he’s a minor – not a major.
The fact of the matter is, we’re all majoring in something.
When people look at your life, what would they say is your major?
