On August 13, Curtis performed the wedding ceremony of Donnie Arpin and Melani Jones. They were married in the beautiful chapel at the Bethesda Home For Boys. It was special not only because it was their wedding day, but also because it was Melani's birthday! Curtis and I enjoyed getting to know this lovely couple and we look forward to more times with them in the future!

2. My Job - On August 5, I worked my last day at work. It was a hard decision to make, but I am confident that Curtis and I made the best choice for our family. The main reason for leaving was because of a conviction that Curtis and I had about the company itself. We prayed about it for almost a year before we got to a point where we realized I needed to leave. (Note: If you are interested in knowing more about this, I am happy to share, but I'd rather share one-on-one than to type in a blog post.) A secondary reason for leaving was because of Curtis' need for me to help him around the house while he takes on more responsibility at work. The senior pastor of our church is deployed as a Chaplain in the military, so Curtis is the only pastor at our church until November. Even though I knew about #3, it wasn't the reason why I left. It just further confirmed that I needed to go. I am now beginning week 3 of not working and I am really enjoying it! I think I was really burned out! The only downside is that I miss the people that I worked with.
