Every month we bring you the personal and encouraging story of someone who has been uprooted by a move or other life change.
Stephanie in Alabama
I first learned of Just Moved Ministry after our second move to Missouri. Since then we have lived in Arizona and currently we are living in Alabama but we are preparing for another move 200 miles away. I was blessed to have found an After the Boxes Are Unpacked study group in Missouri and in Arizona.
This will be our 5th move in ten years. I've always taken the positive approach with each move and looked at it as a new adventure. I've made wonderful friends in each city and kept up with them through the years. My then teenage son had such a difficult time when we moved to Arizona, he moved with grandparents to New Mexico which is home for us. Wow, I still get emotional just typing this. We have a great relationship and talk daily.
Even though we are only moving 200 miles (the shortest move we've ever made) I'm feeling all the overwhelming emotions.
Only through God have I gotten through each move and somehow these emotions are lost and forgotten until the next move. I read Susan Miller’s book, After the Boxes Are Unpacked, within weeks of knowing we'd be making another move and have viewed your website many times as well. Thank you for your insight and support through this book. It's been a true blessing each time I read it.
