New House! New Job! New State!

New House! New Job! New State!

We moved!! It’s been a crazy several weeks for us, but we are finally settling into our new place!

Derick was recently sworn in as an attorney in Little Rock, AR and then started the transfer process for his new public service job as a prosecutor in Oklahoma!

In between all of that, we bought a home on the Arkansas/Oklahoma border (in Siloam Springs), had a few renovations done and then moved in! We’ve been settling in the last couple of weeks and trying to get all the things in order before our baby boy (still no name yet!) is set to arrive next month!

We appreciate all the prayers during this crazy and exciting season of transition!

See below for some pictures from the last few weeks.

    Welcome to Stilwell, Derrick! My family has lived here for generations. There are many very sweet, Christian people here and there are some who are not. Sadly, your job will lead you to meeting them. I know you won’t hold that against the rest of us. LOL I have followed y’all for years and enjoy watching your youtube channel. The home remodel looks amazing. Hope to see more later.

    • laura

      You make it sound as if it’s “sad” to meet someone who is not Christian.

  19. Diane

    Thank you so much for sharing your lives with us all, I love seeing all your updates! The new house looks amazing – all the best for your new life! xx

  20. Maria Vita

    Congratulations on your new home and Derick’s new job. I’m excited for you all.

  22. Carrie

    I live in Siloam I was born here 47 yrs ago. Hope to see you around.

  23. Emily

    Welcome to Oklahoma!! I’m an attorney in Oklahoma–you will love it, Derrick (we are pretty nice here!)! I’ve been following your family for years and am excited to see you all embark on this new chapter!

    • Rebecca

      love your kitchen remodel. the white cabinets really update the space. I think though getting rid if the pops of colour was a mistake. the colour really warmed up the rooms and added some personality. congratulations to Derek on the attorney job. congratulations on the Baby Jill. he is so adorable. Blessing to your family.

  24. Brenda

    Congratulations on all counts! So exciting. Life is full of adventures and It’s good to see your sweet family enjoying them. God Bless from Texas.

  25. godly-young-widow

    Beautiful! Hope to see updates on your YouTube and possibly a new Q & A? But that’s ok, it can wait until your new baby is born. I’m sure there’s a lot of work to settle in, find your medical team to help deliver him, find a church, school, and get to know your neighbors. God’s gonna use you there in mighty ways.

  26. N. Y.

    Congratulations to Derick on his new job…. very proud of him.. and congrats on the new home! I am excited and happy for you all as you start a new, happier chapter of your life!

  27. N. Y.

    Congrats on everything!

  28. Lisa C

    Congratulations on the new job and move! If Derick is ever inclined to look, New Mexico could use a prosecutor with morals and ethics. New Mexico could use a whole lot of God fearing folks and conservatives in this state.

  29. Kay

    Welcome to Siloam! We love it here. If you’re looking for a church around here, we go to NewLife & enjoy the community so much!

    Just finished the book. It is so well written, and I feel it explains your life & experiences with your family fairly. You are so brave to face all of this. Thank you for sharing with all of us who love you.
