It's Only Getting Better!

So things are only getting better for us! We couldn't be happier with the way things are happening and falling into place!
Scott's job is going great, it took a little while for him well us to get used to the hours but all in all its a great opportunity for him. He will also be starting school in August which is very exciting! He is so ready to start school which us funny to hear when he says it.
As for me work got a little rocky after my last post, there was some miscommunitcation about my pay and hours but its all worked out now and things are going great! I am staying super busy & I took my first continuing education class through them and I loved it!
We just got back from Crossroads summer camp with the youth and that was AMAZING! We love spending time with them and getting to watch God move in their lives and seeing them grow. It got us every excited for the day when Scott is a youth pastor and I am the youth pastors wife and we have our own youth group. However it also makes us sad to know that the possiblitity of having to leave this youth group. They really are like a family to us and they each have a special place in our hearts.
Well upcoming events.....this saturday we are going to look at an apartment that we will hopefully be getting within the next month or two. It will more than likely be 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms its huge and a really good price that we can afford. I well we are extremely excited about finally having our own place! We are just praying that this apartment does come opend and we get approved!
Thats pretty much it for an update on us!

Looking Up

Well things seem to be looking up for us! Two weeks ago I started working at Massage Envy in Concord, this is great for us! I am working a lot and am always busy which makes me more happy! Also with this I get benefits and get paid hourly which is good for me since I am still sort of new at this and don't have a clientele built up yet. This is also a place that has locations all over the U.S. so if we have to move I have a better chance at having a job where we go right away.

Scott will be starting a new job in about a week. He will be working with Schwans Food Company this will also be giving benefits and he will be put on a salary! And he will still get to go to school one day a week. We are finishing up sending in the last things of his application, he has already been approved for acceptance he just has to send in a few more things.

This means it's time to start looking for our own place! :) FINALLY!! Granite it will only be an apartment for now but its going to be our own place with nobody else living with us, or rather us living with them. We decided on an apartment because number one it's cheaper eventhough we could probably afford a small house we don't want to take on too much at one time. Number two, we don't know where we will need to be once Scott gets done with college. We may have to move to Raleigh to do seminary we are not sure yet and with the economy the way it is we would hate to buy a house and 3 or 4 years later try to sell it. So right now an apartment is our best option. We have narrowed it down to 3 complexes in Salisbury by searching online and in about 2 months after we have both brought in some paychecks we will go do tours and talk to people about them and decide where to go from there.

So we are excited that things are finally looking up and falling into place and I will be sure to keep you posted as often as I can!

Catch Up

Wow it has been a really long time since I have updated this! I think that I almost forgot I had one of these! That just goes to show that things have been crazy & busy! So here is my attempt at catching the world up on us.

Well first of all we have learned first hand that God's plans and our plans are not always the same. We had our hearts set on leaving in January for Wake Forest so that Scott could start school at the College at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary well that is clearly not where God wanted us. Through a series of set backs time after time we finally accepted it and started praying about where God wanted us. So as of now we have been moved back in with his parents for about 2 months now. I am in the process of finding a new job and he should be starting school at John Wesley Bible College in High Point in the Fall.

I was not making enough money to help out with bills & save money to move so we were pretty much living paycheck to paycheck and not getting to save anything did not put us on track to move anywhere. We decided moving back in with his parents would be best because not only would we be able to save but it was closer to his work so he can work more hours. We tried and tried but Southeastern was just to expensive for us so we looked into other schools and John Wesley has truely been a God-send. They not only except government money but also will provide us with a good amount of financial aid. On top of that he will only have to be at school one day a week so he will have the rest of the week to work!

Long story short about my job....I prayed about whether it was truely the place that God wanted me to be and 3hours later I was in my bosses office getting let go. Which was a big blessing in disguise. It got me out of a drama filled workplace that I was staying in only because I was scared to look elsewhere. This forced me to look and see what else was out there. I am currently waiting to here back from an interview.

We plan to find a place to rent once I get a new job and stay around here until Scott is done with school then we will see what plans God has instore for us after that!
