Natalie Groff is passionate about her calling as mother to toddler Wesley and baby Lydia. But she also follows a call to use her gifts as a marriage and family therapist. This year, God provided a perfect fit for her: working part time with River of Hope, a therapy ministry in Lebanon begun by fellow alumnus Dave Musser.
"Seeing God provide the perfect fit of a part-time job for my passions and life calling as a mom," she says, is a highlight of her post-Evangelical life. And working in an environment where she can pray with clients and talk about spiritual issues is a blessing.
"Evangelical gave me the tools I needed to be an effective therapist and the confidence I needed to pursue the passions God had laid on my heart," she says. "The training I received prepared me with the skills, experience, and spiritual formation necessary to be an effective therapist. Evangelical's integration of theory and theology was integral in preparing me for the work I do every week at River of Hope. I am very grateful God led me to Evangelical."
