A New Job


Derek got a new job!

I am now married to a town Treasurer! Derek got a town Treasurer position for a small town near us.

A job as a Treasurer is not really a job that twenty-something's get very often, and I'm so proud of him!

He got sworn in Monday evening, except the mayor didn't let us know it was going to be a swearing-in ceremony, so I didn't go. If I had known, I would have wanted to go to cheer him on! So I was a little annoyed at that.

Derek starts the job next Friday. It has alot of perks, such as an increase in pay, and health insurance coverage that we don't have to pay for. Derek will be in charge of budgeting and handling all the money for the town, and he's looking forward to the challenges and responsibility involved with that.

However, it will mean more overtime and more stress than his current job, and we won't have as much time together. That's a drawback.

We would definitely appreciate your prayers as Derek starts this new job - that I would be an understanding and supportive wife, that Derek will excel in his job and get along with everyone he works with, and that we as a couple will still be able to stay connected and balance work with our time together. And that the Lord will continue to give us direction for the future.

Thanks guys!

He starts next Friday. I'm so proud of him!
