The Big Decision

     This has been a question that most of you ask us every time you talk to us. Well we have finally made a decision as to where we will be moving after Tyson finishes residency in July. It has been a much harder process than we ever imagined. We had three awesome places to choose from. The difficulty came because each place was so different than the other two, and yet all three were more than we ever imagined. We realized how many things needed to be thought about before we made a snap decision. Where do we want our children to grow up, will Tyson be happy in his job, does Tyson want to do OB, where will Mommy be happy, where will our children have the oppurtunities we want them to have in life, how far away will family be, will we have health insurance, retirement, can we get student loans repaid, the type of home we would like, etc., etc., etc. When it was all said and done we realized that this big decision was not going to be made on our own. We prayed everyday that God would guide us on this journey, and that he would give us peace and clarity with our deicision. After much prayer, discussion, and more prayer, we feel led to return home to Muleshoe, and serve the community that we grew up in.  We want to thank all of you for your support, understanding and prayer through this difficult decision. We ask that you all continue to pray for us and our big decision.
