I'm a stay-at-home Mom; I was on my way to nursing school but thats been put on hold for now, especially since we're going to try to homeschool our oldest son. I'm interested in poetry, blogging, oil painting, collages, anything "artsy" as my husband calls it. I have a facebook page set up as well that I keep in touch with online friends and distant family members.

  2. I looked up all the state laws. Have 'em all printed in a binder witht he rest of my other materials. It basically says that the clinical pastoral counselor has to be affiliated with a clinic. I don't know how or if I even can get trained to do the counseling. I also read in the laws that if you do say or do the counseling and aren't "certified" then it is a Class B misdemeanor. I've got a clean record and would like to keep it that way. I found where I could take a course that includes pre-marital counseling but you also have to take the teen counseling, marriage counseling, drug counsel
  3. Does anyone know anything about training to be certified to give pre-marital counseling? Tn is one of the states that gives a discount for doing the counseling; marriage lic. are about $100 and you get a $60 discount if you take the counseling. They have a form that has "qualified" people to administer the counseling, it has to be signed off on by one of these people. They have all your clinical counselors and all but they also have "clinical pastoral therapist" listed. Not quite sure what that means but I was wondering if anyone knew of a course, certificate type program I could take to be
  4. I have some friends that wanted a small/discreet/quite/private wedding. I thought about getting ordained a few years ago but decided not too. Then my friends talked about getting married and without saying anything, I went ahead with getting ordained. I felt like it was something I NEEDED to do. It's been nearly 2 1/2 yrs since and I have yet to marry anyone. My friends are still engaged. My husband is an Army Recruiter and some couples want to get married right before the recruit ships out. I had cards made and told my husband that I would officiate anyone who wanted it at no charge. I
  5. My son has a mere bronchial infection adn headcold he is 2 yrs. old. Tonight he started up a fever. I would get it going down with Tylenol then he'd feel a little better and get to moving around despite me trying to keep him calm. 2 yr. old lil boy- near impossible to keep him still if he's Anyhow, It's a low grade fever but it scares me still. He is sleeping sound right now, I'm hoping it breaks during the night. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Also: *My Dad had a kidney removed that had 2 cancerous tumors attached to it just a week or a little more ago. He stil
  6. We have just been moved to a new location because of a different assignment my husband was given. It is an "out of the ordinary" feild of work from waht he is used to. The hours are longer so time has been lessened to only an hour (maybe a little more, maybe a little less) each day. I think the time away is getting him down not only because of our 2 yr old son but because I am pregnant with twins. He wants to be around but just can't because of the new job. The job itself is disheartening for him because there is a "quota" to be met and if it isn't met, no matter what the circumstances, hi
