  • Regan Seba

    Go to college and get my BSN in nursing. After that… My sister and I were talking about it yesterday, and I have two dreams: getting married, settling down, and being a steady, awesome friend, or traveling the world and making an impact overseas. My dreams aren’t terribly compatible… So I don’t know where I’ll be in ten years! Probably somewhere in small-town Colorado, married and with a kiddo, working part time at a hospital. But who knows what the Lord will bring!

    • Cricket

      Your two dreams sound exactly what my mom wanted to do! She wound up marrying into the army (traveled all over Europe & some in Africa when she was in the peace corps), had three kids, and sharing the love of God wherever she goes. So don’t think you have to choose one or the other:)

      • Regan Seba

        Cool! Maybe that’s what I’ll do!

  • Hannah T.

    I plan to go to medical school and get a degree in oncology. While I’m still in school, I want to be that girl volunteering at the food bank and standing outside abortion clinics.

  • Ten years from now, wow that sounds like such a long time but truthfully I know it’ll fly past as quick as I blink. I don’t plan upon attending college as I don’t think I’ll need it (I don’t need a degree in homemaking, being a wife and mother etc.) , but I hope to be married and have children by that time and perhaps if it’s the Lord’s will to be a writer by then, maybe for ebooks or maybe real books or even just for my blog if that’s what He wills. I don’t want a full time or part time job away from home as all I see coming from that is my children being put in a school of some kind…So, I guess add homeschooling to that list too. I suppose my answer is a strange one. lol

    • Fighting_Falcon

      I appreciate this answer.

      • Well, thank you. I appreciate that you appreciate it. lol

    • Olivia W.

      Lots of girls on here seem to be planning on going to college, but I think most of us can definitely respect the decision not to do so. There’s a picture on facebook from when I was a toddler. I was wearing a raccoon skin cap, and the caption was “If I can’t go to college, that’s ok! I’ll just go hunting!” or something along those lines. My parents didn’t want me to go to college back then, because my Mom went to college and thinks it wasn’t very useful to her. Now that I’m older and I’ve decided the kind of life that I want to have, my parents are definitely going to let me go to college. But, moral of the story: college is an expectation these days, but for girls who want to moms and wives, it’s smart not to go to college. I applaud you for making that choice wisely even though it goes against the cultural norm :)

      • Heather C.

        I definitely see your point (and agree with @Tatiana). I’d love to be a mum (and thus a wife), but what if God doesn’t bring me a husband? What if my husband dies or gets really sick unexpectedly and I have to support my kids?
        My parents have encouraged me to go to uni so I have a way to support myself if the need arises. I’m also considering careers that could lead to working part-time from home, because I would avoid sending my kids to school!
        But I really like what both of you are saying, I’m just adding another dimension. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • True we can’t see the feature, we don’t know if we’ll get get married or have children but that’s what praying is for. : ) As for the possibility of him getting sick or dying I haven’t really thought about that but I suppose I’ll cross that road when I get to it.

          • Heather C.

            Yes, you’re right: we can’t be prepared for every possible circumstance, and with prayer we can take life as it comes.
            I know a woman who married young without a degree, then her husband got very sick and she realized she might one day have to provide for herself (and him and her children). She got herself a degree, and later in life, unfortunately, ended up having to work to support herself.
            You seem more convinced than I am that you’ll get married, which is nice! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I just don’t really know if that’s God’s plan for me.

          • I don’t know either, Heather. Sometimes I wish I did know, so that I could plan around it, but what would be the fun in that? Anyways, I’m a terrible planner. ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Actually, at this point in my life, for many reasons, marriage and a family are at the bottom of my list of future possibilities, so I’m not planning on it at all, but the Lord’s plans and mine could always be different.

          • Heather C.

            Yeah, it would be nice to be able to plan for the future, but since we can’t it’s nice to know that God knows and he’s got it all sorted! ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • God is definitely a good planner! :)

        • I think that’s a good idea. Not that you have to go to college or anything, (although if you possess the means and opportunity, it’s probably not such a bad idea:) but learning a trade or developing a means to support yourself is wise. Plus, I believe God gives us talents that we have at least a small responsibility to explore.

          The Proverbs 31 woman made things to sell. She had a trade, but her main responsibility was to run her household and honor her husband.

          My mom did a few little side things from home when we were very young, and she assists my dad with his work, mainly by keeping his work clothes clean, but she also picks up supplies from time to time, handles paperwork, etc.

          Maybe the skills you develop will wind up assisting your husband someday with his work. Who knows?

          I always thought that if I ever did get married, I would enjoy being able to involve myself in some small way with my husband’s work.

    • If you want to be a writer, Tatiana, all you have to do is write. :) You don’t have to have a writing job, or be published or anything to be a writer. If you have a passion for writing, even if your practice of it is limited to a journal and comments on the web, you are still a writer, and you can call yourself that.

      Believe me, I never could commit to writing effectively until I stopped saying “when I’m a writer” or “maybe someday I’ll become a writer” and started saying, “I am a writer.”

      The reason I’m telling you this is because it’s a common disease among artists to deny their profession until they feel like they’ve reached a place of fulfillment in it. (Not saying you have the disease, but in case you do) If you want to be a writer, BE one. Put a sign on your wall that reads, “I am a writer” if it helps you. (Not that I speak from personal experience or anything;)

      The great thing about pursuing the art of writing is that you don’t have to go to college, you don’t have to give up your dream of becoming a wife and mother, and you don’t have to meet any specific expectations. (At least, not that I’ve met up with so far. Writing is a pretty broad profession:)

  • Good question! It’s not something I’ve really thought much about, But in ten years I would like to be a lot closer to the Lord, A better worker than I am now but still doing agricultural contracting, own a house, maybe some farm land and I would like to be married with children but only God knows what l’ll be doing in ten years!

    • Louis Gervais

      Good answer!

  • Olivia W.

    In ten years…
    I will have just gotten out of college, and I’ll either have a BSN or RN, or a music education degree. I may take a year to do missions overseas with an organization like SixtyFeet, or start working either as a nurse (not sure what specific field yet) or get a job as a band/orchestra director in the public school system.

    To prepare for the music route, I’m learning viola over the summer to add as well as continuing to improve on violin and piano, and to prepare for the nursing route, I’ll do either middle college or duel enrollment. And of course, getting good grades is always a good way to prepare for the future so that I can get scholarships if possible.

  • Oh boy, this is quite the question! In ten years, I will hopefully have a degree in teaching or business..I would also like to be married or on my way to getting married.

  • Fighting_Falcon

    Let’s see… That would make me 27. I’d probably have 2 or 3 kids by then. Depending on what I decide to do in the next few years, I’ll either still be the owner of my tech company, or a broke seminary student.

    • Haha, wow. That’s impressive.

    • John Oxide

      #3 is great!

  • Anne

    I honestly have no idea. I want to go to college and do something in the ministry, get married, and have kids. But I really want to travel too, so I don’t know. I’ll just have to see where God takes me. :)

    • Olivia W.

      Out of curiosity, what do you mean by something in the ministry?

      • Anne

        Well…different things, but the one that I’m most passionate about is reaching out to young women and helping them however I can, even if it’s just having a shoulder for them to cry on. I also would like to go to Africa or someplace and just spread the love of Jesus by helping other missionaries or maybe even being one myself. I’ll just have to see where God takes me. :)

        • You should go to Uganda with us sometime. =) It’s awesome.

          • Anne

            That’d be fun! Going on a missions trip to Uganda is a dream of mine! :)

    • Cricket

      Check out the peace corps. My mom wanted to travel too but didn’t have the money. It also doesn’t require a long-time commitment.
      Whatever you want to do, you are wise in waiting to see where God leads.

      • Anne

        That’s a good idea, thanks! :)

  • Only the Lord knows what’s going on in ten years, but my plans place me to see myself happily married, a certified midwife, probably somewhere on a foreign mission trip, maybe a couple kids(if not my own *probably* adopted… and eating chocolate.

    Since I’m still in highschool, I’m focusing on finishing all the sciences I need and math.. Oh goodness, math. #nightmare. There’s a partially online school for midwifery so I’ll probably do that when I’m graduated from HS. I’m gonna be working during school, saving money to be able to go on crazy mission trips, so that’s how I’ll be in the foreign mission field. :)

    • Fighting_Falcon

      I’m always fascinated how bad homeschool math programs are. Can’t somebody make a halfway understandable homeschool math textbook? All these smart people like “ohmygosh math”

      • Regan Seba

        Umm… Saxon, anybody? Of course, you really need a teacher for it. My mom’s a math major and a physics minor, so that’s never been a big deal for us.

        • Haven Asnip

          I do Saxon too! I definatly stand behind it. I think it awesome, hard, but awesome. I’ve always had the homeschool Saxon CDs along with the book so I was able to get along without a live teacher. I like that Saxon is pretty much the same basic routine everyday without any major time consuming projects

        • Sarah A.

          My family tried Saxon for a little while. I really liked it, but neither of my brothers did. We actually use Khan Academy now, which is an online math program that’s free. It works really well for us because it personalizes your math work for what you already know and what you don’t know. And my mom is able to get onto her teacher account and look and see where we are and what we’re struggling in. I really like it.

          • Jesse

            I do Khan Academy too!

        • Fighting_Falcon

          I did Saxon from 1st grade to 9th. I think it works great as an elementary school and maybe middle school textbook, but once you get into high school it really falls behind. Somewhere in middle school, you reach a point where you no longer need to do rote work as much and you can really start understanding the material itself quickly and using it well. Saxon doesn’t seem to acknowledge that switch. I think high schoolers having to do 30 rote work problems on material they already know is ridiculous. That’s time that would be spent pursuing more fundamental mathematical concepts in a real classroom. By high school, you should be able to retain information and reuse it without 30 problems of repetition every day.

          Not to mention, if you don’t have a teacher, it’s just nearly impossible to Saxon. Although, I think that is more true for guys that it is for girls. Guys especially hate Saxon because they don’t like following this rigid 30 problem rote system which they feel like (correctly) isn’t teaching them much.

          From personal experience, when I stopped doing Saxon in 10th grade, I went straight from Alg. II to Precalculus. That was a bit of a jump and there were a lot of holes in my knowledge. But even with those holes, I did immeasurably better. My grades were high, I loved math, I wanted to know more about it and pursued knowledge about it on my own time.

          By high school, this type of behavior should be expected. Saxon treats you like you’re still in middle school.

          • Anna G.

            It all depends on how you do Saxon. If you tried to do it with just the book, that’s terrible. And I do agree that the endless repetition can be frustrating for some–my mom would let me do only half the problem set or less as long as I did well. But with a teacher Saxon is awesome! Look up Dr. David Shormann and DIVEintoMath. He has made discs of lessons for all the Saxon books (not the new Common Core edition but the one before that) and he is great at explaining things in a way you can understand even if you’re not that good at math. Plus he’s a Christian and that comes across very clearly. :) He’s also (more recently) developed his own e-courses for math and science, but the DIVE cds are still available. Full disclosure: I have no reason to tell you to get this if you are using Saxon except for the fact that it has worked for me and my siblings amazingly well–including a couple that hate math. We couldn’t do Saxon otherwise. And with DIVEintoMath, Saxon is great! ~Anna

      • YES! My grades and moral improved greatly the day I ditched Teaching Textbooks and got a real teacher lol.

        • Fighting_Falcon

          Same. When I was homeschooled, math (which was Saxon) was absolutely the worst and I just hated it and loathed doing it when I woke up every morning. Then I joined a charter school and I rocked that class.

          • Ugh Saxon was awful – I had that for pre-algebra. Some things are just better when they’re actually taught, I guess =P

      • I have to use something called Life Of Fred and a video series on math to help me with math…I still detest it. lol

        • My Mom just discovered Life of Fred. Before that we were doing Math-u-see. Of course, I’ll never ENJOY math, but it is more bearable now. =p Haha. Really though, Life of Fred is kind of up my alley because I like how he incorporates humor into (otherwise) boringness. It’s almost like the guy relates to our pain…gotta love a math teacher like that. XD

      • Daniel

        They have, in fact homeschoolers have the best math curriculum currently in existence, it’s written by Saxon (the new “Saxon” authors are inferior).

        In all seriousness, the people I know in engineering who used Saxon are so much smarter than the ones who used other things or went to public school. It’s ridiculous how big of a gap there is.
        I think a reason there is such divisiveness is simply because some feel like they can’t ask questions and get useful answers, which regardless of what math you use, is necessary. I’d even go as far to say that it’s necessary for almost every course of study.
        Other math simply doesn’t present you with the problem over and over again (which I know, is a pain if you don’t understand how to do it)

      • Sarah Jane

        Agreed it’s not my favorite subject but,I tend to be very good at it.However,I wasn’t at first until my Mama found out about Math U See,now I like it!

    • I definitely agree with the eating chocolate part!
      I’m glad I’m not the only person who isn’t a big fan of math. I’m stuck doing my whole Algebra two book during the summer.

      • I like math okay, it’s just the remembering part I have a problem with. (Forgive the pun;)

  • Sarah A.

    As of right now my plans are to graduate highschool in December of 2017, go to a 1 year worship school the next fall and then a 2 year Bible college the starting the next year. After that, my plans are pretty tentative, based on what the Lord does while I’m in Bible College. But I’d like to go to college for Astrophysics (or maybe aerospace engineering) and then work for the Institute for Creation Research.

    • Elsรถz Metin

      Sarah A. I know my now wrotes not about in Your This Place was Write Things. Bicause, DISQUS in the mistake today in I& I don’t write in You. You are Imp.

    • Musical Ragamuffin

      Can I ask what worship school?!

      • Sarah A.

        Sure!
        The basic answer is it’s called the Calvary Chapel School of Worship. But here’s a more detailed explanation:
        First off, I have to give a little bit of back story. My dad is the pastor of a church that is part of Calvary Chapel. Which is a fellowship of non-denominational churches that teach verse-by-verse, chapter-by-chapter, expository teaching through the Bible. Anyway, there’s a Calvary Chapel School of Worship that is a 9 month (1 school-year) program that is designed to equip those in worship and media arts ministry to serve in their local church.

  • I have my own plans, but I hope that I’ll be doing whatever God wants me to do.

  • Ten years? A college graduate with a degree in education. Hopefully happily married. Probably in a foreign country serving as a missionary.

  • Louis Gervais

    Having been asked this questions a few times, my answers remains pretty much the same: “In ten years I hope to be in the will of God.” This is because people usually ask if I will still be in the ministry I am currently in 5 years down the road, or what my future plans are, and (honestly) I used to make plans and then God had to change them and then I made other plans and then He changed them too right up until the point where God got me to realize it works a whole lot better for everyone involved if I first ask Him what His plans for me are in the first place. That being said, there’s nothing wrong with having personal goals for self-improvement. But as far as goals such as where to live, which job to have, who to marry and so forth; as long as you discern the will of God and obey Him then you are in the right place =^D Thanks for asking! And have a nice day!

    “Now
    listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city,
    spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not
    even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that
    appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say,
    “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As
    it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil.” -James 4:13-16 NIV

    • Violin with Feet

      “In ten years I hope to be in the will of God.” Yup!

  • Where do I /want/ to be? Happily married to a pastor, involved in Women’s ministries, using music somehow–all potentially overseas.

    Where do I actually see myself? No idea other than it’ll be in God’s plan and it’ll be awesome. :)

  • – Trent –

    I really long to be in full time ministry as a youth pastor. That’s my all time dream. ๐Ÿ˜

    But I also would love to be married by then, to the girl of my dreams. Haha, whoever that may be.

    And lastly, I hope to have at least one book published and widely read around the country (hopefully changing of many lives).

    That’s me. How about you, Anynonomus? Where do you see yourself in 10 years? My email is [email protected] if you don’t want to make your name known on a public forum.

  • Haven Asnip

    I want to first graduate high school! I would love to get my RN in nursing at a collage close to home. After that I’d like to get my pre-med at Mcarthur’s university in California. With my education I’d like to do short term medical missions, maybe some sort of trauma response. That being said, my ultimate goal is to do what God wills. Right now I am just trying to prepare myself for whatever he might have for me. Weather that’s marriage, singleness, mission work, or something I don’t even know! I can’t wait to see where He will have me in ten years!

  • Jesse

    Sharing about Christ in the middle east.

    • I’m not sure if it’s just because I’ve been reading a lot of books on Islam lately, but I feel a bit of a pull to the middle east, as well. Their culture is beautiful, and ministering to them is something I would love to do.

  • Violin with Feet

    Glorifying God through a ministry of presence in Lebanon. I’m in love with Syrian and Iraqi refugees. My goal is not to share the Gospel and save people with my words, but rather shut up, listen to their stories, serve them and be served by them. Building relationships and having obedience to His will, slowly and steadily, and having patience on God’s timing instead of flinging short-lived spasms of passion at them.
    I’ve recently fallen in love with art and how God can use visual artists both in the Church and in the World to share the truths of the Gospel and individuality of a person. I’d like to be a full-time artist. Right now, I paint using only my fingers. I am a synesthetic artist.
    That basically means I have a condition called synesthesia, where my brain is cross-wired in the detection of sound and sight. I associate colors with music. I hear colors and see sounds. If I listen to “Scandal of Grace” by Hillsong, I’ll hear cold blue, pops of yellow and bubblegum pink and splashes of dark purple.
    A friend of mine asked me to paint what I was hearing–and viola! I became a synesthetic artist who paints songs with her fingers! haha:D Quite a mouthful if people ask what my passions in art are. LOL:P

    • Cricket

      So cool! I know someone who can taste colors.

    • Emma Grace

      Awesome! Scandal of grace is an amazing song! It brings a whole other dimension to grace when you think about being a VICTIM OF GRACE. powerful.

  • In ten years I hope to be a published author and illustrator, perhaps a writer for, or host of a blog, and … I not really sure what else yet. I have half an idea for a ministry.

    What I doing about it right now is: Writing material for websites, studying scripture, making friends, reading, learning, brushing up on my sketching, participating in a book club, etc.

    It may not sound like much, but I think it’s a good start. Who knows where it all may lead to?

    Lord willing, something good will come of it. :)

    • Christopher Witmer

      Mallory, that’s sounds like some awesome plans!

      Have you submitted anything to the Rebelution, recently? If you’re interested in writing, you definitely should!

      (Have you submitted before? I’m trying to remember… in any case, we have a new account: send it to Jaquelle at “write [at] therebelution [dot] com.”)

      • Thanks, Christopher. :)

        I did submit something once, a couple years ago. Most of what I write now is fiction, but if I come up with anything I’ll be sure to submit it!

        • Christopher Witmer

          Great! Look forward to it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Bekah14

    I see myself graduating high school and (hopefully) becoming a paramedic or doing mission work:) God willing that is, I have a question for Y’all if God called you to do something that wasn’t in your plan would you be willing to give up your plans to follow his?
    God bless

    • Sarah Jane

      Yes!

      • Bekah14

        Sarah Jane, thanks for replying and I am glad to hear that you are willing to follow Jesus no matter were his plan will take you.

    • Emma Grace

      Yes! It can be so… painful.. to say the least, but God pours blessings when you follow his will and you are intune enough to listen to him!

      • Bekah14

        Well said Emma Grace!

  • Emily N.

    I see myself ten years from now in a court room as a lawyer defending a case for Christ like in God’s Not Dead 2 . That’s what I feel like God wants me to do. I’ve started studying about law with a friend and we’ve started a blog together. It’s actually more than being just a lawyer, it’s trying to bring America back to God.

    • Olivia R.

      That is a wonderful ambition! Good luck to you. :)

  • Musical Ragamuffin

    It’s fun reading everyone’s thoughts on the future! I have had so many ideas and I still keep changing. But I will hopefully be married and maybe have kids, my own or adopted. I want to help people whatever I do. I took a social work class, and that was really good on the best ways to effectively help. I might do something in music; I am learning piano, voice, and guitar, and now trying the recorder. I have written songs, and one I performed at my church. I helped take care of kids a couple times with Bethany Christian Services, and I really enjoyed that, so now I’m open to working with kids. I have an idea for an organization to help those who are depressed or have suicidal thoughts, inspired by my uncle’s death. I don’t know if I’ll really start it, but it seems like it’s something that is needed. I made a powerpoint of it for my Social Work class. I have an interest in working in Native American communities because of their high rates of suicide, and there is an awesome ministry called Hope in Transit that teaches music to Native kids . Anyway, those are some of my varied ideas. As with all of the things above other than getting married, they were a great passion for a short while, and then they kind-of faded off. Maybe they will be short-term rather than a life time. So, where I am in ten years will definitely be God’s call!

    • Musical Ragamuffin

      But I sure need a lot of help from Him to be willing to follow God’s will!

    • Bekah14

      That’s sound like a solid and God honoring plan to me Musical Ragamuffin! I also am taking piano, voice and am teaching myself guitar, and it’s so fun to talk to someone who has the same interest as me!
      God bless!
      Bekah14

      • Musical Ragamuffin

        Awesome! Yeah, I taught myself guitar as well!!

        • Bekah14

          Cool!

      • Olivia R.

        It is so fun when I find another lover of music! It seems like a lot of people I have met teach or have taught themselves guitar, which is what I did until I got a teacher. :)

        • Bekah14

          I hope someday that I will be able to get professional lessons but all in good time right? :)

          • Olivia R.

            Definitely!

  • Olivia R.

    In ten years I hope to have become an accomplished musician, but I am currently waiting on God to see what He has planned for my future. I would love to become a missionary someday as well. :)

    • Bekah14

      Sounds good Olivia R, I’ll be looking for your name on the charts when you make it big! :)

      • Olivia R.

        Thanks! :) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • I think about this a lot. In ten years, I’ll be 27. What I see myself doing, and what I am becoming more and more sure is God’s will for me, is being a missionary to kids through sports in the States. I’ve worked before in the apartment complexes around Atlanta; the families are minority ethnicities and don’t have much money. I want to create an organization where those girls, and any other girls who want to, can have the opportunity to play softball at a high level with a low cost and in a good environment. I also want to invest in their lives academically. I know a lady who is a missionary in Georgia; she owns a ranch, and she has a fully accredited academy that she runs out of her ranch. Basically she’s homeschooling the kids who come to work with her horses; the kids are from families whose parents work and don’t have time to homeschool them or don’t care if they’re homeschooled. I don’t want to teach in a public school because teachers are so limited by the system and I don’t think I could keep my mouth shut(:
    I also see myself being a writer (maybe doing freelance sports articles on the side) and a foster parent.

    • Wow, that’s really cool Hailey. =) I know a lot of times people are so focused on mission work in other countries they fail to see the need of our own country. I met a guy in Jamaica a few years ago who said he and his wife wanted to be missionaries to New York. That was a real eye-opener for me. But there are so many ministry opportunities in our own backyards (so to speak). Do you live in Georgia?

      • Thanks Abby! I completely agree. I kind of grew up in a Christian homeschool bubble, which I’m glad of, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized my literal next door neighbor’s don’t know who Jesus is. Yeah, my family knows a couple who moved from South Africa to Connecticut to be missionaries. Yes, I live in Georgia and I love it. Fastpitch softball is very popular here, so I think it’d be a good place to build a ministry around the sport! :)

    • That’s awesome! Those ministries continually inspire me; I’ve not really thought of the States as mission field, and hearing stories like these gives me hope that something can be done mission-wise for our country. :) I agree with you about the public school thing… I couldn’t keep my mouth shut, either. #debateteamdisadvantages

      • Ugh, yes. I’ve learned more about the public school system this year than I ever wanted to know. It’s sad and frustrating, but it has given me a desire to make a difference. (:

  • Been giving a lot of thought to this since I’m graduating this fall. I really want to work at (or more ideally own) a center that rescues abused/injured horses, then rehabilitates them for therapeutic riding, especially for disabled veterans and troubled teens. Sort of like pairing broken people with broken horses, and in that way the overall focus would be on redemption and second chances.

    I’m currently looking into internship opportunities to gain experience in animal husbandry. It’s a little tricky though as I am still traveling and singing with my family and doing mission work in Uganda.

    I am also looking into training service dogs right now, trying to figure out the logistics of doing that while on the road. On top of that I am the sponsor relations coordinator for our Uganda ministry and help plan schedules and what-not for the teams we bring in there every year. I hope to continue with that even as I pursue other ministry outlets. So, lots of big plans…

    • Sounds awesome! I’ve heard of several centers like what you mentioned–therapeutic riding. What is animal husbandry?

      • Animal husbandry is the care and cultivation of different breeds. Since I want to own a horse rescue, learning more about treating basic injuries and general care for horses is definitely a must. There are a lot of therapeutic riding centers across the states, but to my knowledge there isn’t a program quite like the one I want to create. There also aren’t as many Christian ones as I would like there to be. So yeah, pretty exciting stuff. =)

      Wow thats awesome! Ive worked with horses all my life! I had the privilege of working at a horse rescue for about four years! Awesome goals and definitely needed. I have seen first hand horses die from abusive homes. Its very sad but so satisfying when you see a horse return to truly living again. totally cool girl!

      • Awesome! I’ve been looking into internship programs at horse rescues, so if you know of any, let me know. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Btw, where you from?)

        • Emma Grace

          I will! I live in Ohio :) you?

  • Rebekah

  • Jalen Barbour

    Right now I have a blog, http://gospel2thestreets.blogspot.com/, and I am working on that, but I would love to be in full time street ministry by then. My hearts desire is to be on fire for God, loving Him more every day, and living unashamed to proclaim my faith to the lost.

  • The Bean

    Let’s see… Good question. In ten years I’ll be 26. By that time, I will have finished forest engineering school and will have finished working for the Swiss civil protection service. If it is God’s will, I’ll be serving Him as a member of the UDF, a Swiss Christian political party. I’ll maybe already be married and I want to be actively serving God wherever He will have called me.
    You got me thinking.

  • Emma Grace

    I will graduate from high school next year. Then I will have graduated from my community college with an associates of arts, have graduated from New Tribes Bible Institute, then I will hopefully be a linguist, evangelist, missionary in Papua New Guinea. I pray that my relationship with the Lord will be stronger than ever and that I will be pursuing him above all…. and hey, a husband would be awesome but I’m not banking on it lol.

  • In ten years I would like to have my masters or doctorate in nursing. I would love to be serving in some type of ministry, preferably out of the US (because I’m a travel freak) It has always been my dream to somehow serve women and children with their medical needs, especially teen moms. Of course I would love to be married with three boys and one girl, but I don’t know how that will turn out :) Right now, to achieve my goals, I’ll be finishing up my last year of high school next year, hopefully with some college credits and then heading on down to Liberty University to study nursing with a focus on global ministry and a minor in literature.

    • Haha, I’ve always wanted six boys. Not sure why. =p

      • lol, yeah. We have this joke that because I’ve always said I don’t want to be married before 24 and don’t want any girls since boys are so much easier, so my mom says that I’ll probably get married at nineteen and have six girls :p But yes, boys a waaayy easier, in my opinion!

  • Dan Edwards

    In ten years I hope to have either a master’s degree in ministry or music teaching. If I get a degree in ministry, I hope to be a helping hand in starting a church. I also would try to be in the worship band. If I get a degree in music teaching, I hope to be a middle school teacher in Colorado, and teach piano separately. I would still hope to be in a worship band.

    • Dan Edwards

      But if God wants me to do something else, I will do what he wants.

  • In ten years ?
    Hmm..I will say about my career.
    Ten years so I will be 27 then

    Scientist ,game designer ,gospel singer ,Christian movie actor , CEO of my own company,billionaire ,preacher .

    Hard to believe?
    Well I dream big and with help of God it will come true

    Why ?
    If I had money I could help people I don’t need to depend on anyone .
    I want to make people believe
    And others I don’t have time to say .

  • *is answering really late*.

    So if you had asked me a month ago I either would’ve said that I have no idea; or I would’ve said I am going into nursing school. Welp that sort’ve has changed.

    Over the past month or so I have seriously been thinking about going into full time youth (possibly children’s) ministry. I would like to get a minor in pyschology (I cant spell that word to save my life) as well as having a minor in counseling. I would also like to learn how to run a sound board and be able to find my way around computers efficiently. As well as play drums, guitar, and piano. And then I really really want to get married (youth pastor would be cool) and have children on top of that and probably homeschool.

    So yeah thats sortve my insane dream currenty; as to what God has planned for me I dont know. I guess I’ll have to wait and see. ๐Ÿ˜‰
