Have you ever felt like so many changes were happening around you that it was difficult to catch your breath? Well, that’s how I feel right now. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know exactly what I’m talking about!
Two big life changes are taking place right now. Change #1 is that were having another baby! Our baby boy is due in November and will be our ninth child. We are so excited. After three girls in a row, it will be a fun change to be having a BOY! I’m tired, and am so grateful to be in my second trimester, especially since my nausea has subsided. What an honor it is for God to partner with us to bring His image bearers into the world, mamas.
Finding out that we are expecting has led to another big change. We decided to move back to our home state of Georgia. We are so grateful for our time in South Carolina, especially since the Lord has done wonders with our finances while there. We paid off $117,000 worth of debt while living in South Carolina from September 2017 through May 2019.
We thought my mother in law would be moving to our area, which never happened. We never really got connected with the community, and when I became pregnant, I really wanted to move back towards home. I do feel badly about the move at times because my husband left a really good job to move us back to Georgia.
Everything has fallen into place, and we’ve moved into a really cute little cabin. I thought it would be way too small for us, but surprisingly, we fit well and I really love it. I do miss our land so much, though. Privacy is very important to me, and our cabin is much less private than our South Carolina home.
Our SC home is currently on the market, and we are praying that it might sell before long. Once it sells, we probably will reach mortgage freedom within a year. HalleluYah! I have felt such conviction about becoming debt free over the past two and a half years. Lord willing, the end is in sight.
We are settling in and love our new mountain town. It seems like a lovely place to raise a family, which is very important to us.
Oh, and our oldest daughter is preparing to attend college out of state this fall, and was just gifted her first car from her grandfather. This has been hard on my mama heart!
I hope everyone has had a nice beginning to your summer, and I also hope to pop on here more often. I’m so grateful to God for the many blessings He has given to us.
