Can a Christian Dad work a travelling job?
Years ago, I probably would have said “No”. Parenting, and marriage for that matter, needs to take priority. It requires active participation. Just sending in a paycheck doesn’t get the job done. Through the years working as a consultant, I could point to many examples of families that failed under the strain of working apart.
Then, it happened to me! God has given me training and talent in a niche software that has few jobs in the area we live. My work-from-home job fell apart, and I was left with 2 weeks to find another job. A travel contract seemed the only option.
I spoke with many friends who had done some sort of travel successfully and got many good tips. I’d like to share what I learned in case there are others going through the same thing.(more…)
