What Should Faith Do?

My friend Faith is at a crossroads in her life. She is a widow at 34 and her life is completely up in the air.

She had most recently been teaching elementary school, but now isn't sure that's what she wants to return to. She has a law degree from Duke, but she stopped practicing law due to lack of interest and to get married. She also has some sort of degree from UC Davis. She is one of the smartest people I've ever met.

Does anyone have suggestions for a career path for her?


  1. I know that Faith will find her way. It sounds as if she is a very well-educated and very special person, and it may take patience, but I know she will find her way.
    Faith-you will be in my prayers.

  2. I have a friend who earned her law degree and began a career as a litigator. She lost interest in practicing law and became the law librarian at a big firm in Phoenix. She also teaches part time at the college level. She loves working in law without the stress of billing hours, late hours and winning cases.

    Big hug to Faith!
