My name is Terry. I am a mother of 8, a wife of 30 years, a Registered Nurse – entrepreneur, and a parish nurse.
After my sixth child was born, I decided to leave my job as an RN and stay home full-time with my young family. When my youngest child started kindergarten, I felt it was time to go back to work. After taking courses to upgrade my nursing skills, I joined a team of community based nurses visiting patients in their homes. I enjoyed my patients but not the demanding schedule. Work commitments took too much time away from my family. So I quit.
I realized that the only way I was going to have a career was to work for myself. With much prayer, more courses and the support of my family, I became a nurse in independent practice.
This is my blog about how I try to balance the demands of raising a large family, the needs of a small business, and most especially, my love for the Christian faith…. all by the grace of God.
