One year ago Doug accepted the position at NW Mutual. As with so many life transitions these milestones cause reflection. Especially this transition and this career change because this was not what we were looking for. We were not on the hunt for a 100% commission job. Shocking, I know.
The crazy and wonderful thing about this whole process has been watching the Lord gently lead us down this very scary and very unknown path. From the first time Doug walked into the building to this very day, we have felt the Lord just pushing and calling us to do something so scary, so unsafe, and frankly something so hard.
Especially when you compare it to what we were leaving. New Life literally felt like a safe cocoon in so many ways. Our home, friends, job, etc. We were ready to leave, but it was still a very scary step out of the comfort zone of what we had known for nearly five years.
The past year has been a year full of suits and ironing dress shirts weekly, meetings, praying and waiting, lots of hard work, tears, worry, and seeing the Lord's goodness and faithfulness each and every month.
