I’m currently sitting in my new home, in Nebraska, USA looking out to snow ridden streets with two rings on my finger while I type my first blog post as Mrs. Bethany BADEER. It still feels like a dream sometimes but I sit here with a thankful heart, never forgetting all the prayers that brought me here. The wait was long but my, oh my, IT WAS WORTH IT. My family and friends would always tell me during our season of waiting: “Beth, once you are together again, nothing else is
Truth be told, it’s taken me almost 6 years to sit down and actually write about this. I’ve mentioned it briefly in blogs & posts but never delved deep enough because if I did that It would mean I have to relive it and I guess I haven’t been ready for that until now.

Story time! 2017 takes the cake for the most change I have ever experienced in such a short amount of time. Around February/March the Lord told me to quit my job. A career I had studied for and worked hard at for 3 years. I had no fall back plan, nothing. Just like Abraham, he told me to get up and move.

I’ve really struggled to start writing this blog because I just had no idea where to start.
