The person I spoke with told me to go spend money and enjoy life. After that, if I felt called to ministry, I could come back.  Looking back, that turned out to be exactly right for me.

While I was at McCormick, I was in some personal turmoil. I was in a bad marriage and struggling to define myself. Being at McCormick was a way to center myself in the Christian faith and to see myself as a capable person. Pauline Coffman, the dean of student life and a McCormick alumna, was a warm presence, honest and helpful.
