Heathers new job!

Our daughter Heather is starting a new job on Monday!

She has a degree in accounting, but has been working as a cook at the same nursing home I work at. This has been a good job and she's really enjoyed the residents and staff there, but she wanted to get a job where she used her degree. The job market hasn't been too great here in Michigan and it seemed that everyone wanted to have 3 years of experience.
We've been praying for the right job to open for her. We heard that a job was open right here in our own town and she applied for it.
It seemed to take a long time, and there were many more prayers as she went through the interview process, but a little over 2 weeks ago, she got the call that she was hired!

This is the building she will be working in, as a receptionist and also using that accounting degree. We are thankful for this great opportunity for her and for the way God has continued to take care of her!

Hope Heathers job is just what she was looking for. Getting a job right near home certainly saves on fuel costs. We may run into her sometime over there..........
