My Mind...

I have had a lot on my mind lately. There is so much going on within our family that not a lot of people know about and it looks like it will stay that way. Jake and I have so much on our plates and trying to figure out what the right path is for family seems overwhelming. I know that I am not much help either for Jake because I have made up my mind that I want to move our family to Florida, but he has a great job here and I know that he can't just give it up. 

I would love for us to be able to move to Florida and start up a mission similar to where Jake is working now at the Haven of Rest. I have been praying about this but just am so lost as to what direction to take. I feel like I need away from everything I know so I would solely depend on God to give my family what we need. 

The kids are growing up and I feel like they do not get the experiences in Ohio like I did at their age in Florida. There is not much here for them and seems like it is just getting worse. The few things that are around to do is so expensive when you have children. The kids loved when we visited Florida last summer because there was always something to do and see and most of it didn't cost a thing to do. 

All I know Jake and I can do is continue to pray on what the right path is the Lord wants us to take...


  1. With all do respect, there also comes a time you have to make a decision for yourself and just do it. I am a Florida native who moved far from home to beautiful San Diego. I had no job, but I had faith in myself to make it. It has brought me a beautiful, amazing life. If you feel the move is the right thing to do in your heart, start planning and rely on yourselves to get you there. Good luck to you.

  2. My husband moved us away from the place I loved in California. It took a long time for me to find my place in PA. Often times he wants us to learn contentment. I'm praying for you and your family.
