Come join us on this crazy adventure! For many years and lots of consideration, we are leaving all we’ve ever known for something new. We’re moving from our hometown of St.Louis, born and raised, to Atlanta in 3 weeks! It’s something we’ve romanticized about and now that it’s happening, gulp! God’s favor has been all over us through this scary process and it’s a bit of chaos and certainly not the easiest thing we’ve ever done, nor the cheapest. But here we go…
My husband and I know that this move symbolizes another level of trust for us. Trusting each other and trusting God. We are moving out of our comfort zones into a big vast sea of possibilities; possibilities of failure and success.
I love that I don’t have to worry about this not working. Our great big God goes with us wherever we go and there’s always a reason. I pray my children are able to look back on this when they are older and see that too. I pray they also know that they can dream dreams as big as God.
We are so excited for our future friendships for us and our kids. By the way, if you have your own kids and live in the Atlanta area, I have some pretty fantastic kids that make great friends. My 3 musketeers love laughing and having fun. It’s never dull. As for me, I like long walks on the beach and…no, never mind. But I do enjoy fun and laughter and can’t wait to see who God leads us to.
How can you help us? Pray for us. Pray for our families. We are leaving both sets of our parents. We are taking their precious grand babies farther away. It will be a time of change and getting use to things being different. Thank God for FaceTime! Pray that they have understanding hearts as we take this grand adventure. We know that they are our biggest fans and are on their knees for us always. We have relied heavily upon our families the last 5 years. This move will deepen our appreciation and love for them, I am sure of it.
Pray for our future home. We are still on the hunt and while my chest could start getting tight and I might have a hard time breathing when I start to think about that scenario, it doesn’t. There’s an eerie level of trust and faith oosing out of me these days with this grand adventure. The Bible tells us “do not be afraid” 365 different times. That’s one for each day of the year. Reason #1 why I can be FEARLESS.
Stay tuned for what new craziness comes up next. We know it won’t be boring because we have an incredible writer writing our story. We trust Him completely.
