2009: A New Chapter

With the beginning of the new year comes a new chapter in our life. This was a somewhat difficult decision to make and a bittersweet one as well. We are leaving Hernando and moving back to Good Hope, at least temporarily. We are excited to be moving a lot closer to family but very sad to be leaving the friends we have made in the five years that we have called Hernando our home. This is the only place our children have known.

I know that many of you have questions about why we are doing this now. The short reason is that Jason’s business has dried up due to the economy and our cost of living will decrease in GA. We will be staying at his grandparents' farm just down the street from his parents' house, for at least a little while. Jason has some job prospects. Music Man will finish the school year in Walton County. Dawn is most likely going ahead sooner than Jason and taking the boys.

We are very ready to get back into ministry again. Please pray with us that God will lead us where He wants us. Pray for our small group. Pray the transition goes smoothly for the boys.

We have been immensely blessed over the years to have been in such a loving community. The friends we have made will always be near and dear to our hearts. We would love to see each one of you before we leave, but fear that to be impossible. But feel free to stop by if you would like and give us a hug! We are sure gonna miss you all!

We will keep our cell phone numbers at least for now. Email addresses will not change either. Find us on Facebook – we are both on there several times a day!


  1. oh, I am so sad to hear you are moving!!! I haven't seen you in years, but I know that a transition is HARD! I will be praying for you guys! Thank God for is a wonderful way to keep in contact with people over hundreds of miles!! :) You will be missed even though I am not even in the same town.


  2. I know I haven't been a steading presence in your day to day, but you are going to be missed very much. I think of you often and wish you and your family only the best. may God bless this move and new chapter for the Chandlers!

  3. You will be missed Dawn! We didn't get to see you much, but I thought of you all often. And it meant more than you know when you came to the hospital when Caleb was having his back surgery! Ya'll will be in our prayers. God Bless.
