We finally did it, the anticipated move has come to be. A great friend is now owns my business, and we are diving headlong into this adventure of grad school. I am enrolled at Talbot Seminary, working toward an M.A. in Philosophy of Ethics and Religion. And Janay has been a huge encouragement and support as we begin this adventure together!
I began classes with fear and trepidation but things have settled a bit since. The "fog" that sets in when starting the program should lift sometime before Christmas, but even now I am becoming comfortable in not understanding everything - knowing it will come together sooner than later.
Janay counsels elementary school students at a high need Anaheim school. Her work is difficult, and the grant which hired her has lofty objectives without much direction for reaching them. She has embraced the task of developing a program and is running with it.
The attractions of Los Angeles have kept us busy & we love being close to the beach again, but we desperately miss our friends in v-town. Trying to build new friendships has been a tiring challenge in the midst of this transition. But we know these things take time.
We are excited for the adventures God has for us here - because we know He guided us to this place.
