After about a year of talking and praying about this decision; Luke and I have decided to move to Conway (my hometown). This was not an easy decision for us because we have made so many close friends here in Benton. I cannot describe how much I am going to miss our church and all our friends there. BUT...we will still be friends and visit each other! RIGHT?!
We put a FOR SALE sign in our front yard on Monday. Right now we are trying to sell it on our own, but if a month goes by and it's not sold then we will get a realtor. Our plan is...once our house is sold we will move in with my parents while we build our new house. We have a 3 acre lot close to my parents house that we are going to build on! We are so excited to have this opportunity to raise our family in such a fun place with lots of room to run around on.
Obviously one of the main reasons for us to move in Conway is to be closer to my parents. I see how special it is to live close by family and I want that for us and our kids. BUT another big reason for us to move to Conway is to help get a church started. It's called Onechurch. You can check out the website at www.onechurchconway.com. My youth pastor growing up (Paul Hudson) has left Second Baptist and is going to start his own church! We are so excited to join in with him and Onechurch.
I have tried to write this blog for days now....and just couldn't put it into words. I am very nervous about this change in our lives. But we know that God is leading us this way and we want to be obedient to Him.
ON A LIGHTER NOTE:
Drake will be 6 months old in 10 days!!! I can't believe he's almost a half of a year old! Time flies! He bring so much joy and love to our lives. We feel so blessed that God chose us to be his parents.
I will write more later on what he's up to these days. I think this entry has gotten long enough. I will end with a picture of Drake. He is all bundled up ready to go to Target!!
