Unfortunate news

To our dear friends and family:

Jared and I have found ourselves in a situation that we never expected would happen -- Jared has lost his job.

That means that right now, we are heavily dependant on God to provide a way so that we can keep on going.

Because in this economy, it’s very hard to find a company that’s not cowering in fear and that is not slashing budgets everywhere, we’re not optimistic that immediate employment is likely.

We’re not without marketable skills or things to offer; Jared has professional level computer skills and I have a variety of things that I can do as well -- so we’re going to be fully embracing a more entrepreneurial lifestyle.

We don’t want to go on unemployment and we don’t want to place any undo burden on anyone, so we’re going to work as hard as we can knowing that God will make a way.

Right now, we’re asking that everyone pray for us, keep an ear to the ground for opportunities that come up, and spread the word about what we’re doing.

In addition to our home based Internet retail sales business, Jared is planning on selling his time for technical services to individuals and businesses and I’m going to do the same.I am offering house cleaning/organizing, data entry/letter writing/any other task in that realm, childcare, cosmetic (facials, makeup for special events and photos, and errand running services. These are just some of the things that I can do for you, and for the people you know. If you have a job you need help with, chances are good that I can be an extra back/pair of hands/brain/ set of eyes/whatever.

We would greatly appreciate each and every one of you giving us a chance to *earn* your business and the business of your friends. Not to sob story here, but we're now officially completely reliant on this. We don't want a pity vote, just for you to keep your eyes and ears out for anyone who might need our services.

Thanks in advance for all of the help I know you'll be.

  1. I'm really sorry that things went that way with the takeover of Jareds company. We will most definetely be praying and we will bring it to the church tonight. We love you
