6 years ago, EJ and I had been married for 1 year and we were already starting over. His first job out of college ended with a lay off after just 9 months. EJ and I prayed and asked God to make it abundantly clear what our next move should be. Instead of being depressed over it all, EJ worked like a dog to get another job. For three months he hit the pavement. It was hard every day but he did it.
In the end he had 2 promising offers sitting before him. I can remember thinking he should go with option A because it came with a base salary and that made me feel better. He wanted to go with option B because he is a born entrepreneur and he knew he could do it! He was passionate about option B. I was afraid. I distinctly remember feeling as though the Lord was saying, "Shut your mouth and support him." I did. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. He adores his job. He loves to go to work in the morning.
Here we are after EJ received an award at a company dinner. I am so thankful for God's provision for our family. I am thankful for EJ's drive to provide and allow me to be home to raise our boys. It blesses me more than I can say.
During the company retreat, we had a western themed dinner. We can really get into that!
