Help Wanted!

A few years  ago I heard about Hilary Weeks.  Another mom at my church was talking about a particular song that was sung by Hilary Weeks.  I honestly didn't think much about it at the time.  Later that same week I was on itunes purchasing another song and decided to see if this Hilary Weeks lady had any songs on itunes.  I was surprised to find that she had quite a few songs available.  I purchased the one song that the other mom reccommended and my life changed. Seriously. 


I was having an awful year at school.  I had a class that I couldn't control, I didn't feel like I was an effective teacher, I took several "sick" days that year (something I had never done before in 8 years of teaching), and wondered if I was cut out to do the only thing I ever wanted to do. I cried more than once on my way home from school that year.

Enter Hilary Weeks and "He Hears Me." Something about this song spoke to me.  I felt reassured and more confident.  I still struggled.  I was still confused about what I was doing wrong. But I did not feel alone.  I remember feeling grateful for CD players.  I played this song so often I can't imagine a cassette tape would have lasted!

What can I say?  I believe everything happens for a reason.  I believe He did hear me...whining, crying, pleading.  And doors began to open.  I was accepted for an interview at the school where I always wanted to teach.  It was for a middle school language arts position.  During the process of interviews and hiring, the school board approved another position...middle school reading.  I was offered this position and accepted with tears in my eyes and a HUGE smile on my heart (and face).  Things DO happen for a reason.  We just can't always see the big picture.

Last year I had the opportunity to attend Time Out For Women, a christian women's conference.  There I listened to and personally met Hilary Weeks.  I have since purchased many of her CDs and have not been disappointed with any of them.  Why am I sharing this with you?  Just in case you want to help her out.  Here she is explaining how...
