133. A Season of Transition

A Season of Transition - A Cup Full of Hope Podcast Caroline Colby Harries

During our first 10 years of marriage Colby and I experienced few transitions. We lived in the same home for years. We had been at the same church for 8 years. I was at the same job for 11 years and Colby had been at the same job for 15 years. But last summer, the Lord begin to speak to us that it was a season of new beginnings and we had no idea the amount of transition we would begin to go through. Tune into this episode as we share about the season of transition we have been and give updates of what has been going on in our life lately!
