All Beginnings are Difficult or so you’d think…

February 17, 2022

If you have moved anywhere in the past few years (if it has been longer than that, we tend to have amnesia on how hard moving is), you’ll agree with me that moving is no fun! Imagine, if you will, packing up and leaving your hometown of 40 plus years to move to a completely different area hundreds of miles away where you don’t know how you’ll make a living and you also don’t know a living soul.

Ordinarily, it would be quite an adjustment and culture shock to start out completely new. I admit the physical aspect of moving was the most difficult part. From a social point of view, I felt comfortable almost immediately. It might be because of the friendly nature of many Midwesterners, or because we had so many reasons to leave our once beloved hometown. Listen below to our first podcast that highlights why we left.

Why People are Leaving the PNW, and You Should Too!

This has been the strangest thing to me, that I don’t feel strange at all! A new town, a totally new way of life, and even completely different weather and I feel right at home. Maybe the Great Plains have always been my true home. The Midwest is not perfect. We are living in a flawed world. However, looking out the window of our country home, I feel at perfect peace.

God has a plan for us. We may not know all the reasons He pushed us out to the center of the US, but we will trust in Him always. Just as Psalm 23 says, “

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”

This has certainly been an adventure. I look forward to sharing with you all the amazing places and people we have come across in this great land of ours, the center of it all.

    1. Oh man, so are we! A few weeks ago we went back for a wedding and it was a harsh reminder of why we left.
