Can You Believe It?

I am so excited, surprised, grateful, every good word you can think about...at this moment. I cannot believe how the Lord takes care of us! We just received the news that Tad got a job! I think every one involved in this process was so inspired that it just had to happen this way. Tad's brother, Scott and his wife, Stacy, live down in Round Rock, Texas. They have a home teacher that has recently started his own business. Tad had just talked to Scott about us deciding to move to Texas and he passed out Tad's resume to a few people. He had asked this home teacher if they wore hiring and low and behold they just posted a position on craigslist. Scott gave him Tad's resume and told a little bit about what we were looking for. Well, last week Tad had a phone interview with this guy and the next day had another phone interview with his wife, who also has part in the business. They said that the beginning of this week is when they would let us know. Today, Tad called me on his lunch break asking me to check his email and he had one from this guy. They were informing him that after much prayer and consideration they felt that he was the best person for the job! I was shocked! It wasn't that I didn't think Tad could get the job I just didn't expect it all to happen so soon. What a confirmation to our prayers! We have felt very good about moving from Rexburg and have continued to seek answers in this process. Texas was always a good option and Tad felt especially good about it...so here we go! We are headed to Round Rock, Texas!! We will be much closer to both sides of the family and within a few miles of his brother and sister-in-law! (We can't wait Scott and Stacy! Oh and if we do happen to be in the same ward, I would love to work with you in YW, Stacy! That would be sweet, seriously!!) Not to mention, we will be able to go to a few Longhorns games! Boo-yeah! What a life!

Tad will need to start as soon as possible, which means about a week and a half. Our contract here is not up until April, but hopefully we will find someone to take it over. Who knows where we will live yet (hopefully a nice little starter home!) and what else will happen but what I do know is that we are watched over by a loving Father in Heaven. He has heard our prayers and blessed us with so much more than just our needs. In our time here in Rexburg, we have grown and been uplifted and strengthened. I can't imagine how our lives could have been any different and I am so grateful to my loving Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ. I would not be who I am; I would not have a great husband who is willing to provide for this family; I would not have two beautiful daughters who teach me more than I could learn otherwise. We have met some amazing people and been blessed with great opportunities to serve and we have a temple within minutes of our home! I will miss this place, where I have learned to be the person I want to be, but I am excited for what is in store for us!

I found your blog through Ashley Hardy's blog. My husband and I are from Carlsbad and went to high school with Tad. Congratulations on the new job. We are living in San Antonio, TX which is just 1.5 hours away from Round Rock. Round Rock is such a nice area and close to IKEA if you like that store :) Good luck with the move!
