GIVEAWAY WINNER {& some family life updates!}

Jeremiah 29:11

Well, things are getting sort of crazy here in our home. We have lots of big changes on the horizon, which have my head spinning — so I thought I’d take a break from my regularly-scheduled programming to share them with you!

As you probably know, my husband is currently in seminary. He’s in a program called the Chaplain Candidacy Program, which took him off active-duty status in the Army, and into the reserves while he goes to school. During his school break, he has to return to Army training for one semester (3 months) to complete the Chaplain Officer Basic Course. After finishing seminary, he has to complete 2 years of full time ministry work before he will be back on active duty again, as a Chaplain this time instead of a First Sergeant.

So here’s where we are right now:

√ Byron has completed 2 of the 3 years of seminary 📚

– This summer he will head to South Carolina for 3 months for his Basic Course training (the kids and I will stay home in Ohio) ✈️

– This fall, he will begin his last year of seminary, and at the same time begin looking for a full-time ministry position somewhere. 👔

– He will graduate seminary next August (2017) 🎓

Recently, Byron went on a trip with several other pastors from our denomination. On that trip he made some contacts that led to two different possible positions! So right now we are looking into those possibilities, talking and praying about them a lot, and trying to figure out if either one (or neither) is right for us. If we decide to take one, that could mean we move in a few months (!!!)

💕So if you can help us pray about these big decisions, I would love that!! {…and also pray that I don’t kill the kids this summer having them all to myself for 3 months… LOL} 🙏
