I sell industrial paint for a living, and try to serve God's people however I can, while being a Dad, and a Husband.

Sue and Cynthia, my jobs sound easy compared to yours.

Lord bless you all,

Blessings to all, I used to be a manager of a pet store, but then I became disabled, and I would love to work. But I am Blessed in that I volunteer at a retirement center for the elderly. My mom lives there as well, and I love to talk and encourage people especially about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God Bless friends!

Legal Assistant/paralegal. But I'm retired because I am now the main caretaker of my elderly mother who needs me 24/7.
---sue on 12/3/07

I serve God. Full time. I am on His pay roll. He pays well. Infact, I just got me a promottion. Took me seven years. And a little one. I am thankful. If I am understanding Him correctly, it will be about another two years until His promises starts really coming through for me. Does not mean I do nothing. He keeps me quite busy. Excuse me, Fruitful.

I am an RN, working in the hospital level care in a retirement village. I love working with our elderly, they have so much to offer, and can be delightful. I work part-time now, as I am sort of counting down to retirement.

Also, the unions statewide are always in a battle for us to recieve higher wages. I know some who've had to take contingent positions to suppliment their wages, others do well.
Each experience is unique, come on in and get your feet wet:)

The rise in employment has not reached Michigan.
There are jobs in mental health throughout the state. Many employers have become very strict about the licensing. All MSW's must be working towards obtaining a CSW. Certain areas of social work do not provide the required experience to recieve certification. I've seen people lose their jobs because they thought they had the necessary requirements, but did not .
---lynet on 7/2/06

Mima - I believe that given the apostate times that we are living in that we should stick strictly to the Word of God. There is no such thing as a "certificate of salvation" in God's Word, and to give out such a thing could end up leading people to believe that because their name is written on a piece of paper that they are saved when they are not.
---Helen_5378 on 7/1/06

If someone gave out a "certificate of salvation" what would it said, how could it be worded?
---mima on 7/1/06

Lynet, the reason I asked is because I am considering moving to Michigan, as my daughter lives outside Lansing. I looked into the licensing for Michigan and recognized the LMSW title.

What are the job prospects for clinical type social workers in mental health in Michigan?

My license is for Macro, and Clinical Social Work. Those who must take the exam must test first for clinical, then for macro.
Our Union had to really fight hard for us to get the licensing. The State did not want to give it to us. I'm not sure why, but It may have had something to do with being able to keep licensed MSW's in the state.
Thanks for asking.
---lynet on 6/30/06

I'm from Michigan. I was Grandfathered in for the licensing because I've had my certification for quite a while.
Michigan is the last state in the country to license CSW's.(Certified Social Worker) Any social worker in Michgan who has not had their CSW for at least two years has to take refreshers classes, and then take what I understand to be a complicated exam.
Licensing allows us to work in anywhere in the U.S.

Retired to me means, no more Air Conditioning. But able to do what I love now that I am away from it. It is a lot of work but a lot of fun to study and learn. People many times are just too busy working and making life, and have little time to spend studying Scripture. I use to carry my bible in my van and every time I had a break I would read, now I can do it all the time without excuses and yet spend time visiting my kids, and grand kids.

Yes, I am blessed to work for people who are, as we say, "straight shooters." Even though they are not Christians, they have good ethical values. I have never felt I had to compromise to make anyone happy here. (Not that I would.) There are dealers in town I would not want to be associated with!
