college update...

i think that you being my VERY special readers you deserve to know a few things before the rest of the world learns about them...

membership having its privileges and all that...

we do think that we have settled the college decision for next year. millie's first choice was belmont university in nashville.

it is quite remarkable that she was drawn to a small Christian college. and they offered her a nice scholarship. not a large one. we would have preferred a large scholarship.

there are so many ways that we see God in this decision...

- adam, millie, and i all had belmont as our first choice. being of one mind on this was HUGE.

- i have very dear friends that live in nashville. friends i trust with all my heart to be amazing mentors to millie.

- my brother and sister in law live one hour away. with my adorable nieces.

- millie will be surrounded by creative students and should find many friends.

- she can major in music business and the classes look so exciting! our friend, tony hale, put her in touch with a friend of his in LA that is involved in a career that is exactly what millie would like to do. and he suggested belmont.

- it is a school maxx is interested in. and Lord willing... it would be wonderful for the two of them to be together in college.

millie isn't publicizing the news yet. so neither are we. she is still telling her friends slowly. she is one of the only ones leaving florida. so that is difficult for her. 

again, we covet your prayers over this. especially in the area of finances. we are going way beyond our comfort zone on this. adam is so financially wise and he has done an amazing job providing for our family. i truly know that God has made his heart want belmont for millie because he is always so prudent. i am sure God has many lessons to teach us about trust. and financial management.

and this also means that i will need to go to work next year. not sure what that is going to look like. but i know that God will provide. and that He will make me ready, willing, and able to carry out all that He has for me to do.

i am so excited about belmont and all that God has in store for millie. and for us...

He is good. He is faithful. His plans are far beyond what we could ask or imagine. and His plans will endure...
