"We've Got Big News"


Well, by now for some of you this is no surprise. For others, it just might be and I apologize if I haven't gotten the chance to contact you personally. This has been a whirlwind of decision making regarding this announcement and I feel like I needed to spread it in mass quantity in order to relay who, what, where, when, and why.

We have decided to pick up our lives, our jobs and our doggies and head to a place commonly referred to as "The ATL"

Atlanta, Georgia is the next stop on the map for us. We leave Southern California (May 1st), excited for the new adventures that lie ahead and anticipation of something great. For a long time now, as you can tell by the title of this blog, Steven and I have been talking about moving. If you really know us, you know this is what has been on our brains! Almost annoyingly. I'm sure some of you figured we wouldn't move, it was just something to talk about....we thought that too at times! :)

It almost happened back in 2007 right after we got married, but we didn't feel the time was right. Then, we bought our home. So, we were here for a while, paying off debt and getting re-grounded in life, church and relationships. The last 3 years has been a learning time, especially this last year. It's been filled with excitement and disappointment; pain and healing; truth and promise. We know now, is our time to Go! We've been waiting for the "Go!" We know it not only comes through people encouraging us in this pursuit, but by scripture and desire and a readiness to start a new chapter in our lives. To frontier into the unknown for a bit and to embark on a brand new season.

A conversation with a old friend prompted the illustration of a field being plowed. While blessings flowed in many areas over the past 3 years, I feel like I've been plowed. It was painful, it took a lot longer than I expected and it wasn't always fun. I've learned a lot. I've grown a lot. I still don't have it all figure out! :) I'm now comfortable with that fact. But after you plow a field seeds are planted and there is a harvest. That's the season most look forward to; where new life and growth takes place.

Both Steven & I emerge from this season, more ready than ever to take on life with a new vengeance. We don't walk blindly in faith, but a reassured confidence in knowing God's promises to us. I can't say it will be the Yellow Brick Road, leading us to some amazing place in our lives, but I can't say it won't be either. My hope is stronger than ever and I'm excited about what lies around the corner!

Thank you to everyone who has ever prayed for us, encouraged us, stuck with us and been our ally. We appreciate you and know you are special to us!

  2. How exciting!!! Atlanta, Georgia is so beautiful. At one point in time we thought about moving there!!! :) I hope the move is smooth both physically and emotionally. You will grow so much as a couple -- moving from everything you know! I know that Aaron and I learned a lot from our move up to Northern California. We will be praying for you guys in this next journey! :) Blessings to you Lisa!
