And we place our hope... · Updates

Update: A message from the hole we’ve been in

It’s been a while, so here’s an update!

We are well! Bubs is growing, Jono is still working at VZ, and has taken on some new projects. Life in Utah is good. We are so thankful that God has brought us here.  He has done a work in our lives that we wouldn’t have willingly submitted to in the place that we were. As much as we loved Seattle, our heads, and especially our hearts needed out.  It seems crazy that 4 years have passed since we moved! Jono and I will have been married for 8 years in September.

I’m about 85% finished with a Masters in counseling and am working at a Christian counseling center in the area. While life is far from perfect, we are thankful.

Grandma & Grandpa came to visit for 4 weeks (one of which I was away for school) to help take care of Mason and to just spend some time with him. Our hope is to give this boy as much time with his only grandparents before he is fully grown.  (A picture glimpse below!)

Summer holds more school, my comprehensive exams for my counseling program, fun in the sun and trip away to Idaho with friends, so that should about cover it.

We  are still in the thick of a busy season as I finish up school.  Some days we just feel worn, but our lives are different now, in that, our dependence is not on our own strength in this life, but is found in the one we are living this life for. This life, it’s good, but it’s not our own. So we press on, each day to be transformed from the inside out towards Christlikeness in all that we do. While this seemingly impossible transformation is a long work in process, we are more than ever encouraged that it is possible, through Christ.
