This summer has not been everything that I have expected. Not all bad, but defiantly different. I started this summer doing a chaplaincy at Lutheran General Hospital. The experience was priceless, but very difficult. I started the program well, and ended tired, and drained.

We had many changes this summer. For the first time in 4 years I worked a 40+ hour week, with out being in classes. We got a new car, moved to Elgin, got a dog, found out I am pregnant, interviewed for a youth pastor position in South Dakota, lost my grandpa, and I'm still trying to figure out how to process all of it... the good and the hard.

The Car, the house and the dog are all good. we are excited about becoming new parents, and we are still trying to discern if moving to South Dakota is what God has in store for us. So if you have a second, pray for the Craig family as we do our best to listen and trust God in this process.


  1. is this your way of telling the world your going to be a momma? Or did I really miss the announcement? Okay I love you both and I know you will have an awesome weekend in South Dakota without me. :) I love you guys and rub the belly for me. :)

  2. you should post a belly photo with blake and make a whole post separate to announce and celebrate your new parenthood.
