goodness...will it ever stop?!

Without further adieu....
Kraig and I have been called to a little church out in the valley to serve as youth pastor (and wifey). What a drastic change this will be!?! But a blessing that I never saw coming :)
Kraig has been struggling off and on for about a year now about youth ministry and his (our) role with youth. He knew he loved teaching at OCA and we both loved serving the youth at Oakwood. Kraig just wasn't sure if there was more to his struggle than just teaching and just serving at the capacity that we were in. So, with lots of prayer and searching the scripture, Kraig knew that we were supposed to do something more. Well, that was that. We didn't pursue anything, we had a lot going on at our church and we were just getting into the swing of things and really enjoying our youth. About January...I guess... L O N G S T O R Y short....Kraig got a call from a pastor that I have known probably as long as I have been in the Chickamauga area...and Kraig met through his…

Where do you want to be?

If someone would have told me 5 years ago that I would:1 - marry a yankee :) 2 - work with kids 3 - have a kid 3 years after being married (or have a kid, period) 4 - live in Chickamauga

Hmmm...it's funny (I don't think I am laughing yet) how the Lord has molded my life to what He wanted and yet it is so far from what I wanted, but it is exactly what I needed and where I need to be.
I love my husband. We rarely agree on much but he is one of the best things to have ever happened to me. We joke about our disagreements, right now, we can't even agree on our son's name. Which I know we have time, I just thought it would come a bit easier. Guess not. :) It will come though and …

Sickness = boredom

I have been struggling to get rid of a cough for about a week now. Sunday, it started with a sore throat and an achy back. So, I stayed in bed all day, hoping it would pass so I could go to work on Monday. Well, Monday started with a sore throat, headache and earache. So, because I so hate to go to doctors or take medicines, my husband and mother put on the guilt trip of having to take care of the baby ~ which is very true so I called into work and spend most of yesterday morning at the doctor's office. Now, you must know that I don't necessarily feel bad. I just have a cough that can't be broken and a few other minor symptoms but I feel fine for the most part. So, after waiting an HOUR to see the doctor...I have bronchitis. He gave me medicines and said if I'm not better by the end of the week to come back. So, here I sit on day 3 of not leaving the house. BORED. But I am thankful for this time of rest and my boss allowing the time to heal although I would …
