Need a life change

I'm really just blogging this to myself but tonight I have once again come face to face with the fact that I feel a calling to help people who are mentally challenged through art but I have no idea how to start. 
1. I have no education in this area.
2. I am the main bread winner so I need an income.
3. I'm not sure how to set aside time I don't have to volunteer.
4. I feel I can't make a change.
5. I just have no idea where to start. I just know that when I am involved with children or people who have special needs I feel a need to help, to encourage and to inspire them.  I want to make a difference in someones life.
Just going to work doesn't fulfill me. I didn't realize how my photography really did give me satisfaction when people were happy with their images and how I made them feel.  Making them beautiful and happy really was my motivation.  I miss that.

My life situation has set me up for change but I am stuck in a mind set of  "I can't do that" because I have no experience or connections in these areas, I'm not qualified, I can't afford to take a risk, etc. I know I'm rambling but if anyone has suggestions as to how to make a leap like this I'd like help. I don't want to spend the rest of my life just working to pay bills.  I want to help others.  If I can't do it with money I need to do it myself.
Please pray God leads me to where He is calling me and I am able to see opportunity when it presents itself and not listen to the fears and doubts that will come.


  1. I sent you a msg via fb...

  2. Maybe checking with your local library, they seem to have their finger on a lot of different things. The way I see it is God gave you this desire of your heart, so he will open those doors. You just have to be looking and available to walk through them. I will be praying for those doors to appear. Blessings Friend!
