Departure-Part II

Those of you who know me well (or who have simply been paying attention) know that I haven’t been content at my job for a while. I’ve been here for over six years and have reached the point where I’m no longer challenged or fulfilled by my work.

I mean no offense to the newspaper, but I am looking down the road to my future family – and I don’t think being a crime reporter is conducive to motherhood. Heck, it hasn’t been conducive to being a good spouse — and that’s my fault.

I will look back on my time at the paper and treasure the fond memories and the amazing friendships that were built — not to mention finding my husband! I plan to stay in touch with many of the folks there, and I expect them to do the same! There were stories I wrote that changed my life and impacted this community. Not too many people have the chance to do the things this job allowed me to do.

It’s bittersweet to announce that I’ve accepted a communication position at a private Christian school in Peachtree City. It’s intimidating to embark on a new journey – I’ll be the new kid at school, yikes! – but, I know that it is time for me to fulfill my calling and serve the Lord in a more tangible way.

I'll also be working for the Life Training Institute one day a week handling various tasks pertinent to their operations. I hope to wade into the waters of marketing, fundraising and event planning.

My last day at the paper will be Friday, Sept. 9, and the first day of my new life will be Monday, Sept. 12! I will be working primarily from Peachtree City, but my home and my heart remain in Newnan.

Please pray for Jonathan and me as we begin a new chapter in our lives! Change is daunting for me, but I'm genuinely excited about these new opportunities. Specifically pray that I’ll be able to get out of bed MUCH earlier than I’m used to!

Don’t forget to follow along on this journey with me via the blog!
