A New Chapter

The past few weeks Genny and I have been prayerfully considering what would be the best thing for our family.  Stephen continues to work hard at Neuroworx and has started classes back at BYU.  And with all of his activities and the things that he wants to do, we have decided that it would best for our family to relocate to Utah.  While we continue to pray and wait for a, "restoration of all things" we also continue to push and work hard to try to give Stephen the best care we can and to provide for him the best opportunity to reach his goals.  Therefore, with the school year coming to an end in Arizona, we plan to move to Utah to finally be together as a family so that we can love and support one another.

This decision has been very difficult and certainly has many emotions.  While we are certainly looking forward to being back together as a family, we are going to miss the wonderful people of Chandler.  We love this area, this ward, and this stake.  Our Stake President regularly teaches the members of our stake that, "you are better than you think you are."  That is so true.  In the words of the prophet Joseph Smith when he looked back towards Nauvoo for the last time, "these are are the best people...under heaven."  We know there are great people everywhere, but can't help to think that about our dear friends, our brothers and sisters in Chandler.  They truly are some of the best people under the heavens.  We love you all and will miss you dearly.

We hope to stay in touch and as we move into a new chapter in this journey, please stay with us.  Please continue to pray for Stephen and remember him.  It is because of you, and so many like you, that our needs are being met and we are able to push forward.  Thank you so much.  May the Lord bless us all and may we ever care for one another.
