Going Back

its official.  we're moving back to Michigan!
Nate has accepted a job as a financial planner in Holland, MI and I still can't really wrap my head around it.  It seems like it wasn't that long ago that I was gripping my hands onto the seat of nate's trailblazer, fully terrified of moving to Portland, Or.

Now things have flipped.  I'm not terrified to move back to Michigan, but I am fully aware of what an intense transition it will be for this family.  Fully aware of the faces and hearts that I will miss here in Portland, all the while fully aware that the God of all comfort goes with us anywhere we go.

even though things have been crazy here that past couple of months, i am really hopeful that these last few moments here in Portland will be fond memories that I can dig deep to find when I am sitting in Michigan longing for my church or the friends that I love.

well, gotta go pack.  would appreciate any prayers.
Onward to the mitten!


  1. Our God is faithful... I pray that you will experience his faithfulness in this transition my friend. Love, Amy J.

  2. Lisa, I'm so excited to hear you are moving back to the Mitten! I've been following your blog and work a bit silently, but I would love to connect with you sometime once you've settled in your new home (if you're interested in a potential new friend). I'm in Grand Rapids, so I'm not too far. :)

    I hope packing goes well for you.

  3. Best of luck to you with your move. Michigan is lovely.

  4. Woohoo! Excite to have you guys back in the mitten! I'll get to meet Haddie :D I love Holland, it should be a lovely place to live.

  5. Wow! We're pretty sure we're moving to Muskegon next year!!! ;) maybe we'll bump into each other.
