effective today jan 24, i’ve accepted the position of full-time stay-at-home mom!
most of you know i’ve worked at my church since i graduated college (9 years ago!!) & it has been one amazing journey. i matured as a woman working in ministry, learning alongside the best leaders & pastors you can dream of!
working in ministry full-time was something only God could orchestrate (in my head, i was gonna be the next Katie Couric!) & i’m so thankful for HIS plan. if you’ve ever talked to me, you know how much i loved my job! i loved the tasks, i loved the people, i loved being a part of all the things! to get to be a part of growing a Biblical community, there’s just nothing else like it.
oh but then there’s MOTHERHOOD. what i didn’t even see coming! becoming a mom has changed my heart & soul & i am blessed to be experiencing it! grant & i are so thankful for the opportunity for me to be home with stone; i pray i never take it for granted.
we love our church & our church family & we thank you so much for the way you’ve taken care of our little family: from our engagement, to our marriage, to our baby boy arriving in the world; thank you. & to all my ministry partners, i will miss you. so much. we are a family & i love you dearly.
i’m a different person bc of my job. God used it to show me a lot of hard lessons about myself, lessons i know have prepared me for motherhood.
i’m SO excited for this new chapter & we would love your prayers as we navigate this new season. humbled to be stone levi’s mama, that’s for sure.
love, the cardwells🖤
