Two and a half years ago, we moved out of our first home together and moved in my family. What followed was a wonderful season of growth, getting to know my family, growing closer to Christ than we have ever been in our personal lives and in our marriage. I am so thankful for the generosity of my family letting us, well, be a part of the family.
Yesterday, we moved out. There were a number of reasons for this, one of them was that we cut Bret’s commute from 45-60 minutes down to 12. Since the work I do can be from most anywhere, it didn’t matter where we lived. However, the biggest reason we moved is that Bret felt God was calling us to move out because of issues in his heart. He admits that he put off moving out because it was cheaper to live at my parents and because of enjoying the growth in his relationships with my family. But God continued to put on our hearts to move out. So at this time, while we’re not sure where all the money will come from and where God will lead us, we’re excited and having faith to see what He has for us, and the growth that will occur during this next part of our journey. Especially in Bret’s heart.
