We are buying a house! God is so good! We started looking for homes in August and just put an offer in this past Monday. I am so excited--I wish we could fast forward past all this paperwork and packing and just be in our new home! Here are some pictures!

It's a tri level, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living areas and a great back yard! DeWayne is pretty pumped. It has acoustic ceilings, which I love. The previous tenants were smokers, so we have to do new carpet and paint before we move in. Now for the God story: when we got approved for a loan back in August I felt God leading us to pray for a house for $180.000. Then we started looking at homes and there was nothing, literally, nothing, in our area for that price. We were about ready to resign our lease for our town home when we found this house. Our offer :$180,000. And it was accepted!
I'm so thankful for a God who gives good gifts--lavish gifts! I'm so thankful for a God that provides. And he provides so much more than just finances! He is so faithful to provide strength, wisdom, energy, guidance, and love right when I need it. I'm excited to take this next big step with Matt!
And I'm excited to dig our roots a bit deeper out here in the west, hopefully that will allow us to bear more fruit...


  1. Oh man....God is just great. So kind and so great...:) love your house....happy moving!
