To those moving this summer:

A fresh start is a good thing. It gives you a chance to begin anew with a clean slate, and that’s always good. Your apprehension brings you closer to Christ and your family learns to depend upon each other more than you’ve ever experienced before. By sharing everyone’s experiences daily, you support each other in scary situations, comfort each other in sad situations, and encourage each other to explore the countless possibilities of ministries out there. God is your Guide, your Comforter, and your Leader. He has many new adventures, experiences, and ministries for you and your very blessed family.

Rejoice for the opportunity!
