If you are facing a move in the near future, or if you have just moved, or perhaps you have lived in your new town for years and yet still do not feel connected to it this series can help. I share from my heart all the things that helped me make my new town my hometown much faster than I thought possible.
Many years ago my husband and I traveled from his hometown (which was a full day trip from my hometown) to a small city in Indiana. A journey that took us thousands of miles away from both of our hometowns and everyone we knew.
My husband and I arrived in our new town knowing just our newborn, our two-year-old, our 6-year-old and each other. We knew no one else, and we had never even set foot in the town until the day we moved there.
Yet within months I had budding relationships with people who quickly became close friends who then grew to the most intimate friends I have ever had in my life. I also rapidly began to feel at home in my community.
It all began with a stressful prayer to God “help me; I am lonely, I need a friend.” This series is what He taught me about making friendships and building community – plus a few funny stories of things that happened along the way.
