Mrs. Stevison Saying Goodbye

It has been my honor and privilege to work here at TCCS for many years.  I started in 1998 as a second-grade teacher. I took some time off when my twins, Grant and Claire, were born and returned to teaching when they started kindergarten.  I am now serving as an Assistant Administrator for elementary. There’s just something special about the heart of a small child! The highlight of my year has been seeing some of these students come to know the Lord.  I also love to see the progress these kids have made since the beginning of the year! They have come so far!

The Lord has really been showing me some things these last few weeks.  We found out a while back that my husband, Brian, was a candidate for a job promotion in SC.  It’s been weeks of uncertainty and seeking the Lord as we tried to determine His will for our family.  It wasn’t an obedience issue. I had told God many times I was willing to go wherever, just needed a direction.  God showed me that it wasn’t my obedience that was the problem. It was my lack of trust. I had to trust and obey.  Within my anxious heart, I prayed, “God, please just direct our paths.” And then He reminded me of the rest of that verse.  Proverbs 3:5-6 TRUST in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not on thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.  

So, in the meantime, I wait and trust.  Trust Him when the buyer for our house backs out. Trust Him when I can’t find a school for my kids that seems to be a good fit.  Trust Him when I have eight weeks to find a new home and move. But with His help, I will trust in Him and let Him worry about the details.  While moving, and leaving TCCS and the rest of my family is not what I had planned for my life, it is what the Lord has planned. I thank you for allowing me to be a part of your children’s lives.  It has been a joy to serve here.
