I am so excited to share with you that I wrote an e-book! Last summer, I felt the Lord asking me to write a book to share our testimony of how we decided to move overseas and what it was like to live there as a family. I want to give this book away for free here on my blog. This message is incredibly dear to my heart, so I want everyone to have the opportunity to read it!
People often look at my husband and I and assume that we always wanted to be overseas ministers. They could not be more wrong. When the Lord first asked us to move, I was absolutely horrified and told the Lord an emphatic “no.” But the Lord brought me on an incredible journey of faith and overcoming my fears. I am eternally grateful that He helped turn my “no” into a “yes.”
In the past when my husband has shared about our big move overseas, this is what he said,
This nation was never something on our hearts or our minds. We NEVER dreamed of being overseas ministers as some do from a young age. We never felt called here. We never cared much about this nation before. But thankfully this story isn’t about us; it’s about Him. God loves this nation, and that alone is a good enough reason for us to bring our family here.
Having lived in a country where less than 1% of the people know about Jesus has marked our hearts in a profound way. After 3.5 years abroad, we felt the Lord calling us to move back to the states. We are back in America, but our hearts have grown tremendously for every nation of the earth to hear about Jesus and I can honestly say that we will never be the same again.
I pray that this book blesses and encourages many of you!
