Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.The moment I thought of right away was moving to Roosevelt. I was packing up our apartment in Provo--we needed to move so we were going to Brian's parents until we figured out what school I was going to teach at. I remember when the school called--I was standing in the kitchen with a box in my hands. I asked them if I could take the weekend to think about it---but I was glad to finally have a job offer. In a struggling economy, I had been really worried that I wouldn't get a job. So I jumped at it as soon as I could. We started make plans--but then the car broke down. Brian wanted/needed to give it a whole new engine, but we couldn't do that in Roosevelt. We had made arrangements to live on-campus so we could find a permanent spot and I could start work. So he needed to stay in Provo, and I needed to be in Roosevelt. I remember being in my new "home" after Brian left. I was so nervous--did I make the right call? Were we making the right decision? I wondered that for a long time. But ever since then I have kept with it. I still wonder sometimes when I come home from work after a hard day and a hard week (like last night)--did I do what I needed to do? So this is definitely a moment that changed my life.
