Marriage Renovation

Brad says…

Over the past 6 months we sold our home, rented a townhouse, bought a new home and moved twice. On top of all that I resigned my position as the Executive Director of Family Resource & Counseling Centers and took a new job as the Director of Small Groups and Marriage Ministry at Worship Center.

I watched a lot of YouTube videos, I asked friends for help, and tackled each project one at a time. It seemed daunting, it was exhausting but after all the work is done it is very satisfying!

There is something to be said about working on your own home. It is rewarding, and gives a great sense of accomplishment.
