There I sat in my pod (a five sided cubicle) staring at my resignation letter, trying to muster up the courage to walked over to my manager and hand it over. Days before I had received my acceptance letter into the Wake Forest School of Divinity program. This would be a full-time commitment which meant letting go of the full-time corporate gig. "But how would I survive financially, no longer making that "corporate money". Yes I had some money in saving but that was not money to live off of. I called mom for guidance. To my surprise, mom said three words that I whole heartedly believe has changed the direction of my life forever, "Money Isn't Everything," she said. With that I jumped out of my comfy sit, nervously walked over to my manager and handed the letter over. 'Are you sure this is what you want to do?' he asked...
I was sure that God had a greater work for me to do in the world around me, but how would I support myself for the next three years?
Despite my fear I took a leap of faith. I will tell the rest of the story in a sit down interview with Oprah one day.
