A big update. KING Sized big. Which reminds you sleepin??

If you’ve known me for any length of time, you know a couple of things about me:

• My roommates always seem to get married

• I am often finding new roommates & warning them marriage will quickly ensue by living with me.

• I love South Carolina

• I go to South Carolina once or twice a year

• I love my job

• I’m a safe person.

• I don’t like to make big decisions if it involves much risk.

Well. My roommate gets married in October- which means I’m looking to move again.

But here’s the kicker.

I’m looking to make a big move.

South Carolina, to be exact.

Why South Carolina? Well. Here are a few things.

My grandparents live there as well as my aunt/uncle/cousins

Ever since I was in High School- I wanted to move to South Carolina.

Every time I actually THOUGHT about it and started to put feet to that plan- fear overwhelmed me.

Definitely felt unsettled about it.

For the past 10 years, I have revisited that same thought… “Could I move there?”

Every time…Loved the idea- but never felt peace about it.

So when my roommate from 2010 got engaged and prepared to marry- I started thinking about SC again.

Didn’t feel the normal uneasy feeling.

Ended up moving in with a friend, Rachel (who, by the way, has been a GREAT roommate) who I knew was seriously dating someone and that marriage would soon follow.

When I made the move to this apartment with her- rather than signing a year lease at a different place- I just knew that the Lord would be doing something big in October.

Again. Revisited the SC thoughts. Still felt peace.

So. For the past month- I’ve been hitting the pavement in a BIG way looking for a job in South Carolina.

Which brings me to my other point.

I love my job. In a BIG way I love it.

The Lord totally provided this job for me in May of 2010 in the most incredible way.

My first thoughts regarding moving were “How could I leave a job that I LOVE and one that the Lord so incredibly provided for me?”

But as quickly as the question was posed- it was answered with “I’d do it all again for you.”

In the middle of even typing this out- I just got an email from a friend saying “Are you dead set on moving to SC?”

I’m not dead set on anything if the Lord decides to close doors.

But I do know- that in the meantime- I’m looking for Jobs in Greenville, SC.

So. If you know anyone out in that area that might be able to help set me up with a job- Let me know!

Questions? Comments? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

In addition- I’d love your prayers! This is a BIG deal for me.

My parents and sister live in Texas.

I’ve never NOT lived in Texas.

I have THE most amazing friends a girl could ask for in Texas.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my church and church family.

But I feel as though it’s time to step out.

Pray for me? It would be appreciated.


  1. Praying for you, sweet friend. By the way--you will bring joy and fabulous cake pops to ANYWHERE you live. Plus, that gives me more incentive to travel and sleep on your couch ; )

    Love you.

  2. Love your pioneering spirit! If God is for you, then what could stand against you? Go in faith and go in peace! Take SC for the kingdom!


The one about moving to a new city

Moving to a new city is not for the faint of heart. Moving to a new city as a single adult is for SURE not for the faint of heart. I&#...
