Last fall, I started my journey of learning sign language. This September will mark my first full year as a student and future interpreter.
I never imagined this journey would be as fulfilling and jam packed with adventure as it has been.
When I started learning, I honestly had no idea what to expect. Taking a sign language class was me stepping out in faith. It’s something I had wanted to do for over 3 years and I decided that it was time to quit putting it off.
I fell in love almost instantly with the language and it’s people!
All along the way, I have committed myself to prayer, asking God for opportunities to learn, grow, and serve.
The answer to this prayer has come in the form of great friendships–including one friend who I consider my mentor–with individuals who are willing to teach an eager newbie.
The opportunities to serve are beyond my wildest dreams for only being a beginner! All I can say is God is faithful…
There’s a lot more I could talk about but I will stop for now. We will definitely talk about this subject more as the year progresses.
Today I just wanted to reminisce and give thanks to God for a great first year.
