This may or may not be a shock to you to find out depending on what you've been told or not told. We've kept things pretty low key up to this point, but since it is official I am spreading the news the quickest way I know how. Stephen is quitting his job. His last day will be November 26 (the day before Thanksgiving). He does not currently have a new job to go to, but we are hopeful. Things are looking promising at this point to work for LithiaMotors. There are a few different possibilities there and we are hoping one will pan out for us. If not them, then somewhere else. We are looking outside of this area, but would stay if we found the right job for us.
Stephen still has a little less than month left in the semester so he will be concentrating on school while he looks for a new job.
Things at his current job have been on the decline for sometime now. I would say since about last January. Stephen would be more generous and probably say August. Let's just say it has gone in waves, but the past few months have just been a steady decline and we feel good about having him quit now.
Since Stephen put in his resignation I have had a warm feeling inside me that I haven't had in a long time. The future is unknown and when that is the case it is kind of scary, but we have an optimistic outlook. We know that Heavenly Father is aware of us and we have faith that he is guiding us in the right direction (whatever it may be). We are looking forward to this change. If you would like to pray for us please feel free to do so because we can use all the help we can get!
