Changes Birthed

Lots of new things are happening for myself and Jacob!
We got word of a job opening at Hillside Christian Church in December of last year. I wasn't sure right off the bat if I wanted to work in a church again. It's different when you are behind the scenes of something and especially something that you love. Hillside has been a FABULOUS church for our family and I love being a member here-So I knew it would take lots of prayer and careful consideration before pursing this job opportunity. Jacob and I prayed and prayed for several months about whether I was supposed to be back in the church or not. The Lord opened up the right doors and we started interviewing. I felt like I was listening to God and that he was leading me to Hillside. Well turns out I didn't get the job...The job I was interviewing for initially. However the night I found out I didn't get the job was the same night a new position was offered to me. I once again was hesitant to jump on board. The job offered to me was a interim role as the Elementary Associate here at church. We prayed about it and met with some of the staff and sure enough I started this month. It has been a wonderful experience with new and promising things for Jacob and I. Although it's only an interim position, meaning when they find someone to take the job permanently I will move on. But Jacob and I are praying about our future and letting God show us where we need to be. I feel great here at Hillside and I pray to be here long-term but I also pray to be where the Lord wants me.
  I just graduated with my Associates degree and I am quickly trying to finish my bachelor's degree so I can start teaching. But in the meantime we are just floating by-watching changes being birthed. :)

Also- Jacob is leaving for New York in the next few weeks. He and a buddy from high school are going a trip to see Dave Matthews Band in concert. I am nervous and excited for him. He will be gone for about 5 days, I will be spending lots of time with my wonderful parents! I am excited to veg out with them for the week!!
Jacob leaves a few days after we are getting this big boy fixed.
Can you believe how big he is!?! He went from sweet little innocent puppy- to full on BIG, ROTTEN, PUPPY! haha

It's been fun taking Luke to puppy training class and watching him develop his personality. Mollee is more patient with him than she used to be and I think it will only get better!
Anyway- there is an update on where Jacob and I stand. We are very busy with my new job and summer, and Jacob has been soooo busy with work! (which we are thankful for!!) But we wouldn't have it any other way. Hope everyone has a great Monday!
