Drumroll Please.... I have Big News!!!

It's been a little stressful not knowing where we'll end up next.

Over the past couple of years we've prayed about the next step that we'll be taking quite a bit. I prayed that the direction that we should take would be made clear and in the end that prayer was most definitely answered. It couldn't have been much clearer.

And so it's time for the announcement you've all been waiting for (okay... in reality it's just the announcement I've been waiting to be able to make!)... Next autumn fall will begin his studies at....

Ave Maria University!

I am so incredibly excited to be headed to a community that's known for being authentically Catholic and loyal to the Church! I would have been really excited to end up in Saint Louis or in D.C. too, but Ave has kind of been a dream school of mine (I know, I know, I'm not the one who's going to be going there!).

Now Paul just has to finish his thesis. I finished proofreading a draft last night (58 pages) but I think he may be adding more to it now. It's a really interesting read, about the Passion... but I'll be thrilled when it's finished and his Masters is completed!

  1. Congrats! It's such a relief when you can see the finish line isn't it?

  2. prayers for you during this exciting season in your lives.

  3. Congratulations! Florida welcomes you!

  4. My husband has said he wanted to live there, though he hates humidity. I think it's because of the planned Catholic community surrounding the college. Congrats. You'll be living where it doesn't snow.

  5. Congratulations! I am so happy for you all! Perhaps if you ever find yourself in the midwest you would let us midwesterners know? It would be fun to actually meet you and your beautiful family.

    We'll be praying for a successful thesis and another move for your family.

    God bless you!

  6. Congratulations to Paul, and all of you, and best wishes and prayers that this turns out to be an excellent choice.

  7. I am a member of AMU's Founder's Club. I have followed closely its growth and accomplishments of its student body. It is an outstanding Catholic University, and its student body reflects it. I rate it and Franciscan University at Stuebenville Ohio as the top 2 for turning out Catholic graduates who are and will make a difference in our culture.

    I just saw Tom Monaghan, its founder, this week. He works tirelessly for its success.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
