Farewell Minnesota, Hello North Carolina!

February 14, 2013

ImageThat’s right. In possibly our greatest leap of faith to date, John and I are moving to North Carolina to open a chiropractic office! We will be living in the wonderful city of Cary, just outside of Raleigh. This move is what we have been hoping, praying, planning, and waiting for over the past several years, and we are thrilled to finally be just a few weeks away!


Many people have asked us, “Why North Carolina?” and my response has been, “Why NOT North Carolina?” Proximity to both ocean and mountains, beautiful evergreens and lakes, temperate climate, friendly people, and a great city. When you’re starting a business, you have the opportunity to choose where you’d like to live, and for us, North Carolina fit the bill.


An especially awesome bonus is that my sister, Erica, also just recently moved to the area! Though we’ve thought it would be terrific to live near each other, we feel that God himself must have orchestrated this one by blessing Erica with a truly amazing job opportunity in Hillsborough, just 45 minutes from where we’ll be living. She has already moved to the area and has been taunting us with the weather report and new discoveries.

Over the next few months, we ask for prayers of blessing from each of you as we embark on this adventure: for a smooth move and good weather, for part-time jobs for each of us until the practice opens, for wisdom in decision-making, for an efficient process in building out the office and starting the business, and of course, that the business would just open with an explosion! We are aiming for a June open date (pending all goes well) but there is much to be done before then. As we venture into the unknown, there is a lot we could worry about, but we go forward with the absolute assurance that God has led us to this place and is opening doors for us.

We will definitely miss Minnesota and the Midwest, especially our friends and family in the area, but we couldn’t feel more confident that North Carolina is meant to be our home.
