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!
