Looking to Rent or Sit

Wanted in North Carolina United States of America

Listing #140348

New Duke Divinity Student, mature adult, seeks housesitting near Durham.

I am taking a huge leap of faith and beginning a new vocation at Duke Divinity School. My calling to the ministry began in 8th grade. I successfully avoided it for decades. With both of my children grown and a successful career checked off the to-do list, I am on a path to ordination and serving as a pastoral minister. Returning to college is a financial challenge. I am hoping to find a housesitting/pet sitting opportunity near Duke University to avoid student loans. I am a responsible, mature adult with references for your consideration.

After decades of working in higher education, I am starting a Master of Divinity degree at Duke University this fall. God is calling me to pastoral care. I am hoping to uncover a house sitting opportunity near Durham. I am a 55-year-old female. I have two adult children doing amazing things with their lives. References and an excellent credit rating are available for your review. I am a responsible and reliable adult and would care for your home/pets while you are on sabbatical. Contact me at ggholmes86@gmail.com. Thank you for considering this opportunity.
