Chad has spent 11 years fighting for this country as a part of the US Army. If you’ve met Chad, you know he has immense pride in being an American. He was excited about the idea of getting to explore, in more fullness, this place he calls home.
I love nature, being outside, and being in different terrains. Being born in New Zealand means I was spoiled being surrounded by beauty of epic proportions. I’ve also had the privilege of traveling to 28 different countries in my lifetime, each offering beauty of its own. Despite being an American citizen, I’ve always considered myself a citizen of the world- much to the offense of my America-loving husband. So I was ready to explore this country in order to grow my appreciation for all that it has to offer.
We are also, in part, looking for a place to call home. A city that speaks to both of us and where we can see ourselves raising a family.
This year is affording me the opportunity to step away from a regular job to really consider what I want to do with my life. Where do my talents and passions meet the world’s needs? What do I want to pursue for my career and for my calling and where do those things overlap. More than ever before, I have the space to be quiet and listen to what I think I am designed to do and to take steps in that direction.
