Hello family and friends, welcome to our new monthly newsletters. We hope that you will enjoy coming here and reading an update about our lives each month, and my secret hope is that my friends would also think about doing the same thing!
Anyhow, our lives seem like they have been on a rollercoaster of sorts since October 31st. If you haven’t already heard, after six months of trying Aaron and I got the “pregnant” read-out on a Home Pregnancy Test! We were so thrilled with the news! We immediately got on the phone to our parents and siblings and made the phone calls, asking them to pray with us that God would keep our baby healthy through this rocky first 3 months. Please join us in this prayer. Our baby is due July 7, 2006. And I know I will be counting down the days until our precious gift arrives!
As Aaron looked for a job, we both had an overwhelming sense of peace that God would provide and take care of us. Very shortly after, God provided Aaron a contract job to work on. Throughout this period of time Aaron and I talked seriously about moving to Utah. It is something that Aaron has been itching for since he was in high school, and as I have grown to love Aaron in the past four years, I’ve also grown to love his calling to the Mormons. We decided that this was God nudging us to Utah almost a year earlier then we had planned, and a reminder that God is in control of our lives. So, Aaron began sending resumes to jobs in Utah. And then on Monday, November 14th Aaron was offered two jobs!!! Both seem like great opportunities and it was a hard decision to make. But I think we have settled on one that is located in Provo, UT.
With this job offer comes the overwhelming task of putting our house on the market, packing our house, and moving! Aaron will probably head to Utah sometime in December and then together we will move out there after the holidays. We have decided to rent an apartment for six months, giving us time to learn the area and decide where we would like to purchase our next home. We are both excited about this move, but I think that as we move on with the process of actually moving we will be overgrown with the sadness of leaving our friends in the Dayton area.
Please leave us comments letting us know that you’ve checked out the new website. Also let us know if your family has a blog that we can link to, or if you’d like to start one and don’t know how… I’ll convince Aaron to hook you up! ;]
Grace and Peace in Christ,
Aaron and Stacia
- That we will carry a healthy baby full term
- That Stacie’s all day morning sickness will get better quickly
- That Aaron will enjoy his new job
- That God will protect/lead us during this move and transition time
- For the Mormons that we come into contact with, that God will soften their hearts toward the TRUE gospel.
