God is good.

You know those times in your life when you are not sure when something is going to work out. You know God is going to take care of it, but you are still struggling with it all. Well, I have been struggling with not having a church home. We will have lived in Raleigh for a year come the end of this month. About a month or so ago, Chris and I had a long talk about what our next step was going to be. We were both emotionally exhausted from church hunting. We were just having a hard time not comparing every church to our last church (which we still miss dearly).

We decided that we just needed to commit to one of our favorite churches and dive in. We narrowed it down to two churches, ultimatley choosing the church that is closest to our house and the one our neighbors attend. We are now regularly attending The Summit. We are positive that the Summit is where God wants us to be. We weren't positive when we first committed to it, but after JUST a few weeks it became clear. God is so good. I am already singing in the choir which is so fun! My neighbor friend and I are leading the worship this week for Route56 (5th and 6th grade) during VBS. We are having a blast! As soon as Chris' schedule will allow, he is also planning on getting plugged in (hopefully helping with the youth in some way). God is doing great things at the Summit and I can't wait to be a very small part of it! Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!

How great!! I'm so happy for you. What an awesome church! If you meet Jan or Chad Ragains (he's in the choir) - they are friends of ours...great couple!

My husband went to the choir rehearsal there last week just to gain some more insight from Chris Gaynor - he is such a blessing!

Justin told me that he thought you were there because he heard Chris say your name and he also figured there aren't that many Talia's around. I didn't believe him because I didn't think y'all were going there! Now I have to tell him he was RIGHT. haha! God is good :)

we really are loving it! i've been leading worship this week for the 5th and 6th graders at vbs and loving it! thanks so much for suggesting the summit! i wish we would have tried it a few more times a year ago when we first went there. but, i am glad that God took us on the journey that we've been on for the last year. we have learned a lot. it's funny how He does that : )!
