looking back on 22

tomorrow is my 23rd birthday! i really enjoy my birthday so I’m definitely looking forward to it. i will be taking advantage of all the free goodies you can get {caribou, starbucks, cherry berry, schlotzkys!} YUM! this past year was a big year for me so I thought I’d take some time to reflect.

about a month after my 22nd birthday I married the love of my life Andrew. it was the best day ever and I am so thankful that God gave me such a wonderful man to do life with.

at the beginning of May, I finished my 2 year internship with Cru {campus crusade for Christ}

at the end of May Andrew and I made our move to Bismarck, North Dakota where he would start grad school for Physical Therapy that fall.

moving meant starting a new job, finding a new church, and making new friends all while navigating the first few months of marriage.

are you seeing a theme here? I would say the thing I learned most during year 22 was to embrace change. change is not something I do well. I really enjoy consistency! this year made me cling to the Lord because He is never changing. Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” even when every thing around me was new and different He was constant.

this past year was hard, but it was also amazing. i became a wife. i made sweet friendships with new people. i found a great church where i was able to find a place to serve. i truly can’t wait to see what year 23 brings!
