New Job(s)

Well, when God closes a door, He opens a window. In a little less than a month Paul and I and the kids will be moving into a home in Grabill, IN to work full time at Gateway Woods. This has been something that we have wanted to do for awhile but never knew when the time would be right (i.e. Paul had a decent job, we have a mortgage, we like where we are at...) But I guess God was tired of our excuses and decided to remove some of them : ) There 'happened' to be an opening for alternate houseparents at Gateway so we interviewed for the position. We start our training on January 12 and begin working on campus the first of February. We are little sad to change the life we have been used to but very excited to be used of God in this capacity. When God closes a door....

For those of you not familiar with the ministry of Gateway Woods, check out their website:


  1. i have been thinking of you guys so much with the job situation. thanks for the update. i feel a lot of things for you. happy that a solution has come. sad for you to leave your cute little house. prayerful for all the adjustments to come.

  2. Well, if that just doesn't sound like you and Paul. I actually read your January post first and thought, "Huh?" I sure missed something, I better back up! I can totally understand what you said about nervous and excited and it being like becoming new parents. With the way this has flowed you must also feel very peaceful about the whole thing.
