Here’s The Scoop…

Michelle Wegner

 So, last time I blogged was in January when I was still languishing on my bed post surgery. My foot hurt–A lot–It still does, but the good news is that I can walk again. I’m not quite where I want to be (hiking the Appalachian Trail), but I can get around the house and go for short walks, giving me a whole new appreciation for walking.  I’ve always loved to walk, and it’s been a very long winter stuck inside, but it’s given me a lot of time to think, focus, pray, doodle, practice being nice when I don’t want to be, etc.

I’ve gotten outside by myself a few times and taken in the beauty around me that isn’t the four walls of my bedroom. I have to say, everything is shiny and new to me.  Breathing fresh air, seeing the blue sky, letting the cold air fill my lungs and the sun shine on my face has literally breathed new life into me.

IMG_0678 IMG_1446This time of focus and change brings us from the end of one season to the beginning of the next.  I feel awakened, renewed, and ready to start our new season of life together as a family in Shawnee, Kansas.  We have a home there, and we will be packing up our home here in Granger, Indiana on the weekend of May 2.  We close on our new home on May 5 (and no, we have not sold our current home, so really…please pray the right family buys this beautiful, well-loved home soon).

Rob will be working at Westside Family Church in Lenexa, Kansas as one of the teaching pastors, and will have some other responsibilities as well.  I am not sure of his official title, you’ll have to ask him that, but we are excited about serving with this seriously amazing church.  Rob starts working there June 1st, so we will have a little transition time after we move and before he officially gets to work.

We will miss our Granger friends and family more than we could ever say.  We know this is right, the timing and God’s direction are clear, and we are ready to jump in head first to this new adventure.

So…there you have it. That’s the scoop.

(And if you know anyone who wants to buy a fabulous home in Granger, let me know! We are having all shiny new appliances put in today for some lucky new home buyer looking for a very easy-to-move-into home)  🙂

  1. Michelle,
    We’re so excited to have you guys coming to Westside, and I love that you blog (me, too). We’ll be praying for a smooth transition, and a quick sale of your home. We look forward to getting to know your entire family. Blessings.

  2. You guys are so brave. I so much want to move away from this snow and cold weather but dread taking my daughter away from her family and school friends. I think it would be so fun to go to a new place and meet new people and start fresh. The excitement of discovering all new surroundings and living in a new house must be overwhelming. I will pray for a quick transition for you guys and we will very much miss Rob and his sermons.

    God is so good! Every transition is difficult, and every person experiences the change in different ways, the girls and I were just talking about all of our moves in ministry (6 total) and each one shared a completely different perspective. Just remember this is a journey of faith for them, too. Individually they are growing in their faith experience as well as together as a family. I think I have missed opportunities to show them Jesus in the midst of putting the ministry above my children. Not that you will do this, but self realization is one of the best teachers and God is big enough to fill in the gaps where I fail :-). Safe travels and happy unpacking.

    Congratulations on your move! We recently moved to another state and I knew that God was bringing us here. You feel the same and this new area will quickly become home. Blessings to you, Rob and your girls. Glad we can stay in touch on facebook, instragram, blogs, 🙂 🙂
