Nine years ago (2003), my husband and I quit relying on each other to keep our marriage together and started relying on God. Wow! What a change! That was nine years ago, and now we are bearing bigger fruit as we begin a ministry of our own.
After working in security with the Texas prison system for six years, and spending two nights a week as a volunteer chaplain for the last two years, my husband is now a full-time chaplain as of July 1st, 2011. We are selling our “forever” home, giving away or selling most of our possessions, and moving three hours’ away. Now that all of my friends and family are about to be miles behind us, I figured I should start a blog, so that I have an outlet for this roller-coaster ride of emotions.
**Update** We sold our home within six weeks of having it on the market, and we were able to get what we wanted for it. And we sold it to a nice young Christian couple, which is important to me. God is great! We have since bought a good, used 40-foot 2009 fifth wheel that we are now living in full time. It has two bedrooms, a full bath, a full kitchen, and a whirlpool washer and dryer. God provides! Oh, and we were able to pay cash for a 2000 Ford F250 Diesel to pull it with.
This blog will cover a range of topics, so buckle up, keep your arms in the air, and your feet on the Rock as you travel with me in my journey of becoming a minister’s wife.
