Honestly, this is something I've been wrestling with these past few days. When I think of being atypical, I think of going to the ends of the earth. I think of adopting tons of kids. I think of individuals joining with the Lord, paving the way to freedom ....I don't think of a student. I don't think of someone who lives comfortably in America. I don't think of me.
I'm learning, however slowly, that God is not limited by my circumstances. He will change and mold me wherever I am. I don't have to wait or prepare to "move away from typical." I can do that now, where I am and with what I've been given.
