We're Moving to Hawaii

I'm excited to announce a big change coming up for our family - we're moving to Hawaii!

On July 27th we'll be moving from Los Angeles to Honolulu. There are several reasons for the move, but the most important is that we believe God is inviting our family to be there.

In Hawaii, Steve will continue working in college ministry with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. I will transition out of work to be a full-time parent. Aaron will start kindergarten just a few days after we arrive on Oahu. Alex will keep on living the good life of a toddler. We'll be close to my parents, grandparents, and lots of extended family.

The change feels exciting and daunting. Lots of hope for what's to come, and lots of sadness about leaving.

I'm already having anxiety dreams about packing up our things and shipping them across the Pacific Ocean. And the thought of saying goodbye to our friends, home, and life in LA brings me to tears. But to move to Hawaii means being home in many ways, where I think our family will thrive.

With our move to Hawaii, we're ending a rich chapter in our lives, and turning the page into something new and unknown.
