Every mother who desires to be with her children dreads the day that she has to return to work. In NJ, they usually give you six weeks paid and sometimes twelve weeks unpaid when your baby is born. Who wants to leave their six-week old baby with someone they don’t even know? I couldn’t do it! Every time I turned on my television someone was killing, abusing, or taking a child! When my youngest was born I started to ask myself, “How can I do this? How can I stay home and care for our children?” I automatically started to worry about going back to work and our finances. At the time, I was the one bringing in the most money. I automatically started to worry!
” Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34
Instead of worrying, I decided to bring this one to God. Faith is believing in something that is unseen. The bible clearly states, “For we walk by faith, not by sight” II Corinthians 5:7. It was time to exercise my faith! I started acting as though my household was my only job! I just knew I wasn’t going back to that other job! About a month and a half before the baby was born, my husband started to reach out to people for a teaching job. He took the state exam, passed it and just needed to get certified. He ended up getting a teaching job with the first phone call that was made! The favor of God is truly on our lives! My husbands new job ended up paying for his certification and his salary was much more than we were previously making combined!
“And my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches and glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
I decided to share my testimony because you might not have any idea what God has in store for you! He can make your impossible possible!
After staying home with my beautiful baby girl I wanted to somehow contribute. “God how can I be that Proverbs 31 woman who contributes while taking care of her home?”, I asked. Then I decided to start my bakery. I wanted the church to first try-out my sweets so I would know if they were good enough to sell. It took me two months to do that! This fear took over me! Fear is a topic for another day, but after receiving positive feedback I decided to start Ki’s Sweets.
