1) Starting a new career (Really crazy story... But the ending is going to be epic!!)

Starting 2015, Courtney and I had made a conscious choice that it was going to be better than the last half of 2014.  However, with the start of the new year we realized nothing really changes because of a date on the calendar only working through seasons.  It is absolutely crazy that I can say with honesty that this past year was the hardest year yet (because looking back we had some hard seasons).  That was not the plan but that is what played out.  God showed us many new things and ultimately took us back to the beginnings where we had to choose to start building again... But this time something new, something with a renewed focus and vision, something with over a decade of experience in who WE are together and not twenty years of who we were apart.

God is still good and continues to reveal Himself in new and different ways.  Selfishly, I hope 2016 isn't as hard but we're ready for whatever comes down the pipe.  Now, get off the computer and go "change things"!!
