Living as young adults in the ‘Real World’


Submitted article



Lewis Howes said, “Your job is to create a vision that makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning.” While this quote sounds great on paper, how many of us find ourselves jumping out of bed in the morning, or are we the type who just wants to lie in bed?

Vision can help us navigate our course in life, but without it we find ourselves crashing against the rocky shore. What is your vision for life?

Are you a high schooler dreading homework and not looking forward to life after school? Or have you already entered the “real world” and realized it’s not as great as you thought it would be? Are you considering not finishing school at all? Are you a young adult trying to find the “good life”?

What is your vision and where is it taking you? Are you on your way to completing it? Michael and Cailyn Wheatley, from Extreme Missions, will be at Church of the Nazarene, 990 Highland Ave., Washington C.H. on Saturday, March 11, at 7 p.m., participating in a forum about living as young adults in the “real world.” There will be a free coffee bar. All are welcome.

Michael and Cailyn Wheatley live in Cincinnati. They spent six years in South America as missionaries working with the Church of the Nazarene. Michael is originally from Washington State, and graduated with a degree in engineering physics. After two-and-a-half years working as a civil engineer, he found himself in South America working as a missionary. Cailyn grew up in Cincinnati, and after a year of studying in college, moved to Peru to work. She is currently finishing her degree in organizational leadership, after a seven-year hiatus from their students. They married three years ago in Cincinnati and moved back last year after living in Argentina, Chile, and Ecuador.
